    No problem. Yeah the wiring can be confusing the first time you work on something unfamiliar, I don't think most shops usually do that kind of custom work. Two people is best to guide the motors out and in carefully (with an engine hoist), but I've done the whole job by myself a couple times when noone was around to help. I'll be around, let me know if you run into any more snags or anything I can help with, and Good Luck!

    Hey, I forgot to get back to you yesterday. Let me see if I can help out some on this. . .
    Everything is pretty straightforward, but it's not exactly a direct swap, mostly because of having to add wiring, and the PS issue.

    You'll use the axles, IMshaft and all the original mounts from the CB.
    Might need to drill, tap & move studs on the trans to match the CB mount.
    Whichever Alternator and the CB A/C system (Pump & Bracket).
    Unfortunately engine harnesses are car specific so the CD one probably won't work-
    steal the plugs you need for the H22 from the CD harness and wire them into the CB harness, all the way to the ECU- where you should add the pins too.
    Assuming the CD is Pre-'96, (OBD1) the Prelude ECU and CB wiring should get along fine after adding VTS,VTP,Knock, and IAB wiring. EGR valve or connector must be swapped to work.
    You should swap the Fuel Rail from the CB onto the H22 for the fuel lines to hook up correctly.
    You may need to modify the CB harness to match the H22 distributor if they are unmatched (internal/external coil).
    To keep PS, you will need to use your/a 92-95 Prelude Power Steering Pump AND high pressure line, or have a custom (longer) PS line made from the car side of the CB line and the pump side of a Prelude line with the proper fitting for the pump.
    Not sure how the exhaust was done on the CD, it is probably custom.
    If you have a 92-95 Prelude VTEC H22 Header/manifold + downpipe, it will bolt up directly to the CB's Catalytic Converter. You'll need to buy one or modify something if the CD uses 97+ H22 Header.
    If the CD is a 96+, there will be a couple more steps to get the wiring down.

    That may seem like a lot but it's still a pretty simple job since you're just pulling a motor, doing a little wiring and installing a motor, just like stock.

    So basically if you've got an OBD1 H22, complete with ECU, Header and PS Pump, just get a 92-96 Prelude PS Line (bend to fit) and someone who's handy with wiring and it's really not even a swap...it's all stock.

    If I were doing this job, without needing to even change the oil, do the clutch or timing, things should be done in a day or two. I'm cheap, but 400 bucks is about all I could ask. I usually try to do the timing tensioner conversion, timing & valve adjustments, clutch job, and anything else I come across that needs fixing for 500. I don't think a "professional" mechanic shop would give you the same quote, though, haha!

    Feel free to ask if there's anything else i can help with or maybe missed, and Good Luck!

    thats good that it worked out for you but there was a hole that the harness goes through without making holes in the firewall as for the fiberglass molding you have to send me a pic so i can see what you mean? there is lines to follow on the inside of the bumper so that what i did..... as for my ride here is my MR http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthre...hlight=1badacc i havent updated yet cause its going under many changes at the moment

    actually mine do the same i see that you actually try things out for yourself which is more than alot of people can say who are "noobs" lol but yea i think it has to do with where you plug them into the brown plugs try diff ones out maybe you might get a diff outcome... if you have anymore questions feel free to ask
