You have just described exactly how mine came last year. Pull the valve cover off and verify the cams have 3 lobes per cylinder, see attached pic.
I believe this particular engine came from the JDM Odyssey. The Intake plenum doesn't have the nipple on the bottom for our vacuum operated front motor mount, the VTEC solenoid doesn't have an oil pressure switch (the hole is plugged with a bolt, just swap your switch in). And the biggest thing.... You noticed the difference in power steering connection, but going further you will notice that the way that PS pump mounts is different from a TSX. Then you'll notice how the alternator bolts up differently too.... So, you will either have to have a custom PS line made to fit it, to use the accessories that came with your engine, OR..... you will have to strip all of the accessories and the water jacket they mount to from the block, and swap over your old water jacket and accessories to make everything plug and play.
You'll be glad you asked... I had my new engine mounted in the car and nearly completely back together before I made this accessory/water jacket discovery, piece by piece. Took me over an hour to realize I was going to have to swap over the jacket and all my old accessories.
Also, I've put about 9k miles on mine so far, and couldn't be happier with the engines performance.
