How to determine H22A4 Year of Manufacture

I've looked all around major Honda/Prelude forums, Google, etc. and can't find detail on where to look or how to determine the year of manufacture of a VTEC H22A4 engine. I know the motor has been replaced in my 97 Prelude and that it is an H22A4, but want to verify the engine date of manufacture.

Re: How to determine H22A4 Year of Manufacture

ahhhh thanks for confirming my suspicions that i was getting from ls1tech and fbodyonline that all chevy owners are indeed, douchebags.

honestly, why are you looking for that info? its not gonna tell you how many miles are on the engine, nor the condition of the motor, and its not like our cars are rare classics where numbers-matching actually means anything.

Then I might decide not to paint my house and reshingle the roof tomorrow if it's going to rain or reschedule my picnic for a day that it isn't going to rain.

Re: How to determine H22A4 Year of Manufacture

well sometimes its important to know what year motor. for example... some parts you cant use one on an obd1 motor .. very slim amount but... still. and for those looking for replacement parts.. sometimes ordering things for an obd1 motor is cheaper then saying that your motor is actually 97 and up... lol its true.

Re: How to determine H22A4 Year of Manufacture

H22A4 is OBD2 though...

Genrally when I buy parts, and I know it's interchangeable with something else, I act like I have both and get a price for both, ESPECIALLY at the junkyard. For example, 4th gen OEM sidemarkers were $15 and only $5 from a wrecked 94 Accord, and it's the same part.
