H23, ECU, harness, and wrecked del Sol (rebuildable) for helping to swap in an H22 into a Prelude? Nice deal.

any updates?
ok, ive gotten a lot of parts in, but no pics of them... i was kicked outta my house by my stepdad, so i was left with no car, money, or place to live. im staying at a friends house, and slowly finishing buying parts. im waiting for the shop to start building my motor for me, since i dont have a garage to work in anymore to do it myself. i should have about 12.3 to 1 compression in my D16Z6. ill try and get pics of new parts this weekend, and will hopefully have it running in the next month.:D

thanks for looking...
