Interchangeable parts on a 96 and 5th gens?

Well let's start with my daily driver.
96 obd1 h22 vtec swap
It needs parts here and there, things like; struts, axles, rad, and many other things.
I recently was given a 97 h22a4 obd2 prelude.
I want to make a thread where people can look up which parts will directly fit on the 4th gen from the 5th. But I don't have a good space to try swapping parts.
If anyone knows what parts are interchangeable please leave a reply or pm me! Side note: I want to know if I could use the obd2 computer in my 96 while using an obd1 distributor with a rywire crank sensor harness adaptor.
I'm also curious about the suspension and brake calipers
Any help will be appreciated!

Re: Interchangeable parts on a 96 and 5th gens?

struts are the first and only thing that comes to mind without heavy modification

You can convert to 5 lug with parts from a 5th gen...

since the motor is an H series, and you have an H series - well that leaves everything on the engine interchangeable

radiators have different bottom mounting tabs, not interchangeable


engine harness is a maybe - both h series but who knows if yours was cut at any point. I'm not positive though

you can use a rywire adapter, but i've read it's not as good as using a usdm crank position sensor.




This is a thread better suited for the 4th gen section

Thanks for the info wing8806! I found out the sunroofs are the same size, you just need the mounts and shave off a couple tabs.
