96 jdm motor and Tranny in 98 usdm car

I know this has probably been beaten to death but, I just bought a 98 prelude that has a 96 jdm motor and tranny DOHC black valve cover ( assuming the 197 hp) and at 35 mph the check engine light starts flashing. When scanned it pulls 7 codes, a misfire for each cylinder plus two multiple random misfire codes. It has the jdm distributor hooked up with the Crank angle position sensor wiring harness going to it (coil bypassed). From what I've read the jdm distributor has the crank, cylinder position and tdc sensor in it. all connectors are hooked up. i've also read that i have to swap the oil pump for a usdm oil pump that has the tdc and cps in it. But if everything is hooked up than how does this realy help? Bottom line i have to get rid of the cel because i just registered it and it needs to go through emissions. Can the ECU just be tuned to not think its misfiring or what can i do? swap to a jdm ecu? Any HELP is appreciated.

I have the usdm distributor but the usdm doesn't have the crank angle position sensor in it which is why I'm using the jdm one with the CAS wiring harness running to it. The header thing i was just curious, it'd be nice to throw it on when i get the rest of the high performance exhaust in a week.
