problem

I own right now Honda Prelude `98 2,2L 136kW 4WS. Have a plan to get JDM engine for my car but got little consern. Does this engine works on my car because of this 4ws system?
Has somebody had experience with stuff like this?Does 4ws system get any signal from engine ECU or not? Are 5 gen Honda Prelude and JDM ECU plugs similar?

Re: problem

What model is your car?

Where are you from?

Which "JDM" engine? - There are multiple. I could be even more vague and say every 5th gen Prelude engine is "JDM" since Preludes were all made in Japan.

4ws is electronic for 5th gens. This was not a feature offered to the states, So I can assume you're not from the general area most on this forum are from. Possibly Europe area?

Base motor will swap into a base engine. Doesn't matter if it's 5spd or auto, unless you're doing a transmission swap (auto to 5spd). However if it's an SH motor - it will not be a straight swap since other parts are needed. If going from obd2 to obd1, things will need to be changed for whatever motor you have.

Re: problem

Honda Prelude `98 2,2L 136kW is car and I am from Estonia, so it is left side steering wheel. :) This JDM engine is made in Japan but for European market. JDM engine will be 5gen type s. I tried an ecu from similar honda without 4ws and it gave an 4ws error light.
