:worthy: You guys are pretty good at this. This is my first post, but I've read a lot of them.
Anyway, I just bought an H22A off of Ebay, but I don't think I'll get the wiring harness or ECU with it. I'm going to keep my Accord auto tranny. Stupid? Nah, just a money issue, and I'll replace it in six months. I know I'd get way better performance out of a manual, but this is my work car, and I hold a cup of coffee on the way to work. Which ECU should I use? I believe that the tranny has it's own, but I'm kinda new to this. Does anyone know of a good place to buy an obd1 engine harness for the swap? Most places sell it all as a kit, for 1500 or more, plus shipping, and I won the engine for $911. So, you know I'm stoked. Thanks, cya

I know that the F22 is a good engine. ;) But I've gone through two of them. My first one started knocking at 216k, so I replaced the bottom end, and get this.......it started knocking two days later. Flashing oil light in tune with the knock let me know it was another bearing. I wasted 400 bucks, and a few days of my time to do the swap, and it bit me. So this time, I'm getting what I want. Good offer, but no thanks. B)

BTW If anyone has a VTEC harness, computer, or auto prelude tranny for sale, let me know, I'm keeping my options open.

I want to stay auto, for now, it's my cruiser. I have a hot rod in the garage that needs fixing too. The difference between your car and mine is OBD. Yours is OBD1, perfect. Mine is OBD0, not so good.
