Re: JDM engine on the way!

i just did this about a month ago. you need to find a usdm h23 distributor. i got mine off ebay for like 110 shipped. there is a tutorial on the site, i believe it can be found in the 5th gen resource section. you just splice the wires that used to go to the oil pump to the new distributor and you are set, pretty simple

Re: JDM engine on the way!

make sure you have the computer that comes with it sometimes they try and keep it and not send it with the motor.

Re: JDM engine on the way!

[QUOTE=mortifiedvictim;379319]There are tons of threads on this. Searching could yield your answers.

I've been searching.... :(

Example it says swap distributor from a4

To run the JDM H22A You will need to use your stock wiring harness and ECU. Also, you will need to swap over your H22A-4 oil pump w/ crank position and TDC sensors (not hard at all). As well, you will need to run your H22A-4 distributor (again, not hard at all). You will need to use the injectors from your H22A-4 also. The JDM type S engine might require a different ECU, I can't say for sure.

Moved over the following from the old H22A4 motor:

a) Wiring Harness (OBD-II)
b) Distributor
c) Coolant Thermostat Housing
d) Oil Pump Housing
e) Crank Position Sensor and Top Dead Sensor (attached to OBD-II oil pump)
f) Exhaust header (JDM 4th Gen is different)
g) Intake manifold (if not using 5G IM, then move your fuel injectors over and get a 4G MAP sensor)
h) Knock sensor (BE VERY CAREFUL TAKING THIS OFF, THE CONNECTOR BREAKS EASILY)
i) Oil Pressure Sensor
j) Oil Pan & baffle
k) Oil Pan/Transmission Stiffener
l) Various gears from the timing belt side (crank gears especially - required for CKP/TDC sensors)
m) VTEC solenoid pressure switch (the connector seemed to be different on the H22A one?)


Onto the list of things you need to swap over:

1) The P5M (USDM H22A4) motor wiring harness.

2) The H22A4 knock sensor, usually they break, but should still be same PN

3) The H22A4 VTEC Solenoid - the connectors are different.

4) The H22A4 oil pump assembly.

5) The CKP and TDC sensors - doesn't exist on the OBD-I H22A.

6) The crankshaft pulleys... all of them. Required for the sensors in #5 to work.

7) The oil pan and baffle from the H22A4 - required to mount the stiffener and, therefore, the transmission on the 5th Gen.

8) H22A4's Distributor

9) The H22A4's Intake (The JDM H22A series is slightly different.) If you don't use the H22A4's intake, then you need to move your injectors over as they are different!

10 The H22A4's Exhaust Header

Re: JDM engine on the way!

search again, there's plenty of posts on here by bustr. swapping oil pump, baffle, and everything else is a pain in the ass. there is a way around it and that's by using n h23 distributor which has the sensors in it, all that needs to be done is run 4 wires
