Have you tried giving it gas..chances are you swapped a motor that is in need of a tune up.

Well the first step would be to figure out what code is setting off the check engine light.

Low oil pressure can set off code 22. Also plugged screen at the VTEC spool valve.

Here's a picture from a Prelude, sorta like your H22 engine.

#12 in the drawing is the spool valve. #13 is the screen inside the #15 gasket. I'd get a new gasket since it will be hardened from age & heat.

#18 is the VTEC oil pressure switch. I think maybe a JDM engine does not have this, so your ECU throws the error because it wants to see this switch.

If your engine is really JDM it will be H22A without the "1". H22A1 is a USDM engine.
