inlakech22 is on a distinguished road
Please help, Im new to this

Hi,

I currently have a 1991 Prelude 4WS Si 5 speed that I've been working to get get back on the road.

I recently bought a B20A JDM engine for it. I don't know what year prelude the engine came out of (I suspect '89). The idiots that went around the engine cutting off all the "unneeded" parts also cut off sections of the engine harness at different locations. My questions are as follow...

Is there a way for me to look up what year Prelude the engine came out of?
Engine SN: 5100272

What USDM engine harness can I use to replace the damaged one?

I am totally new to this and any help would be sooooo appreciated.

Thanks,
-A

Is your current prelude carb'd or fuel injected? If it's carbed you have more of a project than just finding an engine harness. Also I would contact street wirez or rywire since they claim to have "Painless" engine harnesses

Rywire :

Also, if you e-mail or mail honda with the engine serial number they should be able to tell you what year it came out of. I'm not sure you can access that info online but honda will be more than willing to help.

**edit**

Didn't put 2 and 2 together the 91 si is fuel injected so you are fine there. Also keep in mind I'm not sure of the OBD1 JDM motors but a lot of times you need jumper harnesses specifically to have jdm obd1 motors work in usdm cars. Rywire will help you out with that as well. You can call them and they'll be able to tell you exactly what you need and be able to get the correct wire harness sent out to you.

All you need is the block/head. Use your own harness, and any faulty stuff like alternator, injectors, a/c compressor etc,etc. Just leave the electrical stuff out of it. Did you narrow down what the problem was with the B21?
