99 SH Prelude but have base model engine

Hi guys, I have a 99 SH Prelude model but I had to completely swap out the engine and I was wondering what it was that I have to change in order for this motor to run. I realize that I won't have ATTs which isn't an issue. But will I have to change the harness on the engine, since the harness coming from the car is the SH model? Everything plugs in except for one or two. Assuming that would deal with the ATTS. But I am not sure if just keeping this SH harness would prevent the car from running or not.
If anyone could please help me out it would be very much appriciated.
Thank you.

Re: 99 SH Prelude but have base model engine

Let me rephrase that, in order for a base model engine to run in my SH body that has the SH harness. Does it need the SH harness coming from the motor to the car? Or will it be able to run properly with the base model harness that is on the motor and I have plugged in the car harness on the car now. Assuming that since all of the plugs match up except for one that isn't there. Being it probably is to the ATTS.
Sorry if I have confused anyone.

Re: 99 SH Prelude but have base model engine

You can download a pdf manual here in the diy section.

Print the pages from chapter 23 that have the wiring harnes for base and SH.
Compare the two.

There is an atts lamp in your cluster you may have to eliminate and you may have a CEL due to lack of the atts signals, but it seems to me the base harness should work. You may need a base ecu to eliminate the atts signal. But again side by side comparison should tell you.

Check out Hondapartsnow for the ecu part number for the ecu. Then type in that part number in the search bar and it'll show you if SH and base ecu are the same. The atts has it's own ecu as well.
Btw the manual calls it ecm not ecu.

Re: 99 SH Prelude but have base model engine

Either harness should work, I know in my experience when I went from a 97 SH motor and tranny to a JDM H22a, with a LSD transmission without ATTS i was able to use my SH harness just fine. It just has a plug that originally went to the ATTS connected to nothing now.

Re: 99 SH Prelude but have base model engine

I used my factory SH harness and ecu on my jdm h23 bluetop swap with no CEL issues. just like stated above, there will be a plug or two that isn't used anymore. ATTS lamp will come on, a simple 6 screws and the twist of a bulb eliminates that.

No cel, and just take out ATTS bulb.

You may also need the base intermediate shaft and axles.
