    Dude, its a simple problem. I was in your situation about 2 years ago when I first got my prelude.

    its in your distributor, thats where the ign. module is located. Without that, your car will crank forever and not start. You got the coil, but you need the ign. module as well to get the engine to turnover.

    What year prelude? If you have 92-96, its definitely the distributor/ign module.
