h23 to h22 swap questions

Hey everyone,

So I know there is tons of threads online about the common h23 to h22 swap, and I have read as many of them as humanly possible, but I still have a few questions I want to ask.

I have an external coil distributor on my h23 now, and everywhere that I have read says that you can use the external coil dizzy on the h22 no problem. However, my thing that I noticed is that the coil for the distributor sits right where the vtec solenoid would go on the h22. So I want to know how this would work using my h23 dizzy on the h22 if the solenoid is supposed to go right where the coil sits. Do I relocate the coil somehow? Help would be greatly appreciated on this subject.

My current engine is the h23a1 that is obd2a because it is in a 96 prelude si (the only fourth gen prelude they made that is obd2 for some reason....) and I am swapping in a h22a4 w/ an obd1 h22 ecu. I got the obd2a to obd1 conversion harness, and the h22 is usdm not jdm.

I have read a few things about the power steering bracket not working for some reason, while other threads claim for it to not be an issue. What do you guys know about this?

Also, this is my first build I am doing completely on my own and I have pieced together the ENTIRE thing. Its been a very long time coming, but I finally (I think) have all the parts I need to put it together. Is there anything else I need to know about this swap that I maybe might not have read somewhere else? Like, what are the things I need to know going into this particular swap?

And one last thing if anyone cares to answer.... where are the wires for the vtec located on my h23 harness? I have read that they are already wired into the wiring harness, but where can I find the actual wires?

Im sure most of these things are very noob questions.... but to be straight forward, I am a noob indeed. This is all new to me and I have no problem admitting it, I just want to make sure I cover absolutely everything I need to know before I jump into it.

Any answers would be greatly appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to read this post.
