Why not just buy another H23A1 and swap the OBD2 stuff from your blown engine onto the new one?

Re: 96 prelude OBD2 Engine Swap help

You don't have to buy a "1996" engine.

- You have a 96.

- It came with an engine.

- That engine is blown.


Buy an H23A1 and swap the OBD2 sensors and components off of your current blown engine onto the new H23.
