    hey guys i have a 93 prelude SR i had a H23A1 and the motor blew so i have just bought a JDM H22a DOHC V tec, i have already switched my H23 wire harness over i know about the wire for vtec and where they go but when i went to put the motor in the mounts didn't line up, the tranny was hotting the cross member under the fire wall, and the motor was sitting to high, where do i find these mtor mounts or is it custom work i have to do?
