    I have a 96 Accord EX with the stock SOHC VTEC F22B1 OBD2 engine. I was looking for a JDM replacement engine, and I could not find an exact replacement. It appears that the 96 to 97 JDM Accords were OBD1. Is that true? I cannot find a JDM F22B (SOHC VTEC) OBD2 engine for sale. There are 98 JDM F23A SOHC VTEC OBD2 engines for sale. Would a JDM F23A be an easy swap into my 96 Accord? I assume that there would be some wiring and ECM issues. What if I used all the sensors and distrubutor off of my F22B1 engine?

    Also if you have a automatic then you are going to have to swap drive plates. I found this out after re-mounting transaxle to engine. Just a heads up if you go F23A JDM. I have a 97 Accord EX and am at the end of swapping from a F22B1 to a F23A JDM
