Either car is fine for an H22. Many people would prefer to be OBD 1(90-95 Accords). In 96, US models went to OBD2. It doesn't really matter very much except for programming the ECU. Just do yourself a favor and get an engine that is the right OBD for your car. 94-95 Accord=JDM 92-96 H22
96+ Accord=97+ H22
US 96 prelude is also OBD2 I believe, the the JDM stayed OBD1 through 96.

As for the taillights, I doubt the trunks line up. Close wouldn't be good enough.
