A few quesitons about putting a f22b2 in my lude

So my f22a threw a rod and now I am in the market for a new engine.

After searching on CL forever i finally found an engine.
Its a F22b2 from a 96 Accord. It is OBD2.

I have a few questions:

1 - Since it is OBD2 I will have to use my throttle body and dizzy from my f22a correct?
2 - Will I be able to use my same wire harness?
3 - What ECU will I need to find (auto tranny)
4 - I have a Throttle Body from an H23, I think I remember reading somewhere that I could put it on my f22a and get a little bit better performance is this true? If so should I put it on this engine?

For 300 bucks I get the engine and the harness. i figure I could sell the spare TB and Dizzy to help recoup some of the money.

Thanks in advance guys.

wow im never this lucky lol

Can anyone confirm that I can use m current ECU (just to be positive)

Also will I notice any difference between my f22a a and this f22b? I read the f22b has like 10 less HP so probably just a little better gas mileage? That would be nice since I plan on giving this car to my wife come tax time so I can focus on getting a 5 speed.

Sorry for the double post but also what all do I need to switch from my F22a to the B to go from OBD2 to OBD1?

I know TB and Dizzy but what else?

I will, I am nervous as hell about doing this, but dont have the cash to have someone else do this either, a guy quoted me 350 bucks to do the swap for me and he could do it in a day...but after spending 300 oon the motor I wouldnt have that kind of cash.

So I am going to try it myself and If I cant do it then I guess I will have to give him a call.
