I'm swapping in a jdm h23a non vtec into my 2000 civic ex I got everything in and it turned on but its not idling correctly. I read something online about changing out the upper plenum on the intake manifold for a usdm one. Not sure if to get a usdm h23 upper plenum or if a h22 or f series plenum will fit also. Any info will help thank in advance.

I have a 1998 Civic Coupe EX swapped with a H22A4 engine from a 2001 Prelude. After some figuring, I ended up with a relatively simple way of getting power steering (p.s.) to work in my swap.

In a separate thread, it was recommended to use the bracket and power steering pump from a 1992-1996 Prelude. I bought them from a salvage yard and compared them to the 1997-2001 versions I already had (pictures below; the left side is the 1992-1996 version vs. on the right the 1997-2001 versions). The bracket for the 1992-1996 has a protruding bump on the backside (circled red) that would have to be cut/ground off as the H22A4 engine from my 2001 Prelude doesn't have that cavity. I didn't want to go through that trouble and find out the pump wasn't working, so I decided to return them and just use the 1997-2001 bracket and pump. The result is what I have below.



First, I used a smaller belt than recommended. The original size belt that is recommended (made by Gates) is K040400 (the "400" at the end means the belt has an effective circumference of 40.0 inches), but I installed K040395 (half an inch smaller). As you can see, to make room for the pulley, I cut and dented part of the metal headlight support (used a Dremel to make two slits and hammered the piece downward). By using a smaller belt, I didn't have to cut much of it away, but was still able to apply tension to the belt for it to work. I had to first slip the belt on then bolt up the pump to the bracket as it was a tight fit.





Finally (and this was the breakthrough), I used a specially made inlet fitting that rotates so I could route the hose upward around the pulley then down to the reservoir using my original Civic hose. The part is made by K-tuned and is extremely well made (link here); it even comes with an o-ring, which worked with the pump. I owe an extreme amount of thanks to Mike from K-tuned who went through the trouble of measuring their inlet and confirming that the dimensions of the part matched the dimensions of the Prelude inlet that I sent them. I ordered it with 3 day shipping and, because they shipped it the same day, I got it the next day (shipped from Ontario, Canada to California). The only difference, however, is that the Prelude inlet hose has an inner diameter of ~18 mm while the Civic inlet hose is ~16 mm. The K-tuned inlet fitting is also ~16 mm for where the hose connects, so it worked perfectly with what I had in mind.

There is a clearance issue as you can guess with the hose getting squished the between the headlight and the hood. I raised the hood latch mechanism a bit to make room for it. Hope this info is helpful for those wishing to get power steering working on your swap.
