    hello
    i just finished putting in a 1993 jdm h22a which has a internal coil in the dis. and my 1997 prelude has an external coil.
    i know i have to use the 93 jdm h22a dis coz of the location of the crank sensor...
    i am just having problems wiring the coil ?

    You can get power by tapping one wire. Look at the picture. My methods have improved since the first swap, but this works.

    Going into the distributor is a blue wire, and a black/yellow. On the plug going to your old coil is either a black/yellow, or a plain yellow wire. You want the wire that turns on with the key. Tap on and jump over.

    If you splice into the distributor wiring before the the plug, then your wiring can be taken apart easily later. I didn't do that the first time......

    You will have one unused plug, that used to go to your external coil. In that plug will be a black wire with a yellow stripe(black/yellow). This will be your power source. On another distributor plug, that is being used will be a black/yellow or straight yellow. That will be the destination for the power source. The blue wire is something totally different, and shouldn't be touched. I believe it's the tach signal wire, but I can't remember.


    So find the unused plug, and use a spade connector to tap the black/yellow wire, and jump it over to the black/yellow wire that accompanies the blue wire. Don't tap the blue at all.
