    Dear members,

    my name is michel and i live in da netherlands. I own a honda crx del sol esi from da year 1994.

    I have bougt a H22a JDM 2.2liter Dohc vtec prelude engine with 220 hp with wiring harness and ecu and gear box , everthing ! complet engine block that i want to swap. And my hasport engine billets and axles are coming.

    But i have al lot of Q because this is going to be my first engine swap ! i am a car mechanic so i am good with my tools and getting da engine in wont be a problem ! butt connecting some things can maybe give a problem ! so i want to know if there is someone thats has done it , or knows about it !

    a few Q are :

    hasport motorsports also has a wiringharness , do i also need to order that ? is that a harness so i can connect my gauges en speedometer ?

    how is the gear / shift linkage ? do i need a prelude linkage or can a put the del sol linkage on da prelude gear box ?

    Is the fuel rail or fuel line da same ? can i put the fuel line of my del sol on the fuel rail of the prelude engine ?

    I have got a engine harness with my prelude engine and a ecu , butt if i ve got that and i connect my fuel line and my starter and i give the ecu his volt , shouldnt it start and drive ??? the gauge s dont wont than of course butt the engine should run right ?

    Do i have to change my powersteering line to da prelude pump or does the del sol line fit in to da prelude pump ?

    this is it for now !! Anwers are welcome and if you have any others tips of suggestions let me know ! you can also mail me @ michelbeekman@hotmail.com

    THNX , greetz michel beekman, Turbowizard Developments

    your gona need a 1990-93 accord fuel rail 90-93 accord half shaft and your gona need a accord or prelude shift linkage.and your power steering is not gona fit unless you do some major modding

    please read the post before you send him on a hunt for axles

    he's getting the alxes from hasport

    i belive you reuse the cable linkage from the swap, and the shifter from an 96-01 accord... not 100% sure


    and the harness is ok to get because of the ease of reinstallation but its $$$. i couldnt tell you much exept that you already have the right axles...
