Buying a new engine

I was looking at a used engine and I was told that it came out of a 1994 Honda accord and was a DOHC vtec engine but the person did not know if it was ODB2 or ODB1 he is going to get me the engine number he said he thinks it is H22 but is going to go out and hit it with carb cleaner to find out but is there an easy way with the complete engine number to find out if odb1 or 2

Easy way to tell: Look at the distributor plug. If it is square shaped, then it is OBD2. If it is rectangular shaped, then it is OBD1.

They didn't even start OBD2 until mid-July of 1996, did they?

Re: Buying a new engine

F22Bx is a pretty boring motor. Same bottom end as the F22Ax but with a poor flowing (although VTEC) head. It would be an easy swap and if you've got no better options and the price is right you might as well do it

Re: Buying a new engine

Try n take some time if u can n look around for a deal on an h22. I found my h22a w/less then 50k on it for 450. Patience is a virtue my friend. Now on the other hand if u absolutely have to have a motor now then bay all means get what u can when u can. But either way dnt be hastey. Get it compression/leakdown tested, check how much oils in it, check all fluids. Go over the motor n make sure its ok 1st. Would hate to see u spend $ n then have to do it again right away bc u didn't take ur time n go over stuff ya kno.

Re: Buying a new engine

It must be the F22b1 if it's SOHC. the F22b1 is the USDM and the F22b is the JDM. The JDM F22b is DOHC.

Found a h22a with 70,000 on it yesterday going for 550$ didn't seem like a bad deal to me

Re: Buying a new engine

That's not a bad deal @ all. Just make sure u compression/leakdown test the motor. U can rent a compression tester for like $20ish. A few simple tests will tell u for sure if its a sound investment or not.
