    It should be wired for obd0 multiport injection. And may have VTEC wired up or not. Can you ask the guy you got it from? It will make a difference which motors will plug right in.

    ^^Agreed. Find out from the guy which motor was in there previously and what OBD it is running. Or just ask him which harness he modified and what modifications he did to it.

    The Prelude B20 is the worst B-series motor Honda made. Do your research before you start telling people options they have.

    The B20 out of the CRV is the one that everyone swaps in.

    im very aware of that hints the "lol" on it no need to be an ass i wouldn't even waste my time putting something tht old in a car that is just plain dumb and i wasnt telling him his options if i was i would list every be series motor ever made but since that would be a waste of time. n all he would have to do is ask the guy if its the original harness or not if so buy one and an ecu off ebay for 120 bucks and then put whatever b series motor you want in the car...
