1992 prelude with H22a4 motor

Hey guys I'm new to the forums! I recently came across the above listed car and am considering to purchase it and want to see what you guys think. The guy wants to trade my 1993 ex with 180,000 miles plus 1,000$ for his car. The car will start and run for about a minute then blow the ecu fuse and die. What do you think a reasonable fix could be?is it worth it? I've read through a lot of forums and most people say a bad ground or a pinched wire. Mor has Brian crower cams, low compression piston and rods so it's prepped for a turbo. Any help is much appreciated!

Paying to trade a running car for a non-running car seems like a crap deal to me.


In my experience, when a car is being sold or traded in non-running condition, or "only needs [blah blah blah]", there is a reason the owner won't get it running, or won't spend the money for the "only" thing it needs.

The seller is claiming to have done a lot of work to this car (engine internals etc), so whyyyy won't he get it running and keep it? Or sell it running, for a lot more?

These are the questions that should be asked.
