    Okay so i swapped in a 97 H22a4 into my 96 prelude and i am not getting any spark! I am using the F22 car harness and the H22 engine harness with a p13 ecu. It is a external coil (Which is good) and i have tried to search for any possible answers that i could and i can't find anything. All grounds are good and everything else works fine. I just swapped from OBDII to OBDI because i thought that it would help the issue but it did not and now i am REALLY frustrated with what i can do with it! Anyone know what the possible problem could be?

    I was wondering if an ignition coil from a b16 civic Si is the same spec wise, as the h22 ignition coil. I ask because when doing my swap which I just finished up yesterday. I was getting no spark when attempting to start the engine. So I took an ignition coil from my b16 which fitted exactly the same and the igniter too. Everything works but I’m wondering if I’m limiting the performance of my engine because I’m using a coil form a civic any one know for sure?.

    yup...i think me tab and a few others determined that all dizzy parts are interchangable (not sure about A and K, but D, B and H are)

    Them being interchangeable does not necessarily mean that spec wise they are right for any particular engine. I would imagine spec wise that this coil from this b16 is producing the required voltage but I can not assume that.

    nope over thinking it

    ur car doesnt have spark because some h22a engines are different
    so check by where the middle pulley is at from the old motor you will see a switch
    that controls the spark
    so in order for your car to work you have to remove that switch from the old motor and replace it on the new one it should give you spark


    done this three times:/
    blew 3 engines already:/
