Engine swap to new shell

hey all,

I currently own a 93 honda prelude sr-v with the JDM h22a in it. its lowered with an exhaust jdm headlights and fogs etc etc.

The quarter pannels need to be repaired plus a new paint job due to half the car is faded. For the amount of money i am going to need to spend on the body to make it mint i find it would be just cheaper to get a new rust free shell and swap the engine.

so what i am going to do is get someone to take the engine out of my car and swap it into this mint shell i found which happens to be the same colour as my car now it's just a 92.

The only issue is it has the 2.3l(blown) in it. so obviously no v tec. when i swap my h22a in i know i need to swap the computer over. but will the v tec wires already be there in the new shell or will i have to some how add them in from the comp to the solenoid or is that crap already there? I've done most of my research i am just confused about that part.
