So what Coilover would you recommend that can have the same height as stock and gives Comfortable ride for daily driving on the street?

I only have experience with KSport, so other people will need to chime in. Like I said in my previous post, you likely won't find a coilover system that does anything less than a 1-inch drop at it's highest setting. The more expensive coilover systems can provide a more comfortable ride than the cheap systems, but overall, coilover systems have stiffer springs. They can be comfortable, but they won't be as soft as stock.

Why are you so stuck on staying at the stock height? The minimum drop of most coilover systems won't be very noticeable.

Oh cause I don't want to drop my prelude any further cause of bumpy road.

I was thinking about maybe I should just get the Honda stock parts , shock + spring. Do you know where I can order Honda parts for cheap?
The ones I found was like $600+ for 4 shocks, and + $300 for coil spring? That's around $900 for stock Honda shock + coil spring? I dont' get where ppl said they can get them for less than $600?

Can someone help me please? (new to forum) BUYING 1998 Honda Prelude

So I'm buying this 1998 Honda Prelude manual transmission. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out like what kind of things should I look for or things to say to lower the price? The car has 193,000km and it's for $1200. I was talking to the person and here are the things that she told me:

-No engine problems, no leaks

-Timing belt and water pump have never been changed (I was thinking since I work as a tire tech at this shop, I can just buy it and replace it for cheap from discount and my mechanic could help me out)

-Eventually will need new windshield

-Need to change one headlight (not right away)

-Little bit of rust on right rear fender

That's all she told me so far and I'm supposed to look at the car tomorrow to check the rest but I was wondering if any of you guys can help me out on what kind of things to check and how to lower the price eventually. Any help is appreciated!

Thank you

Edit: Sorry I don't really know where to post this

Little late on this...Don't go cheap on a timing belt job. Honda parts are highly recommended.

Unless it's leaking a ton of oil or you notice a very poor condition interior etc. - you get what you pay for. With that mileage and the start of rust, 1,000 tops. You're looking at 500 for the headlight, timing belt and seals at the least

Got a 4th gen with a f20a swap. Harness is all cut up and missing plugs. Cranks over but doesn't start. Need help with wiring. What harness do I buy? Stock chasis harness or other?

May want to direct your question towards the 4th gen section.

I have just bought a 5th gen prelude with a build date of 11/96 and the VIN seems to say the car was one of the first 200 off the production line.

Do the really early cars have any problems? The manual feels a little weird going into 1st but not clunky. Also mine has the f22z6 (aus spec SI) and i was wondering if parts etc are the same between that and other F series engines.

Unfortunately the AU members are far and few between here. You may have better luck with preludeaustralia.com - depending on how active they are anymore. That motor was an Australian only option if i'm not mistaken.

Hello all!! Noob to ludes here. I picked up a 1998 Prelude with an H23a swap, intake, headers, cat back exhaust with test pipe... I am looking to do some engine modifications and ultimately boost it. I have done a search for boosted preludes etc. But I haven't been able to narrow it down after about an hour of searching for a really good guide to someone who has a build thread of a seriously built h23a motor. If someone can point me into the direction of a thread that would be great! I am really looking forward to my build. Also loved the preludes and really excited to eventually boost it with this motor swap but I want to build it right and guidance is always welcomed! I know I am going to have a bunch of questions and I want to plan it all out first.

Thanks! Looking forward to hearing from you all and super excited about this forum!

Just approach it as you would any other motor. Good quality parts, well planned out ending with a good tune. There is no real guideline to do it - if you're not doing any internal work, start by researching reputable manifolds and go from there.

OK where do I start? My question is 5th gen plug location. I did a rebuild on this motor and just cannot find the mate for this plug! First off it's an AT rebuilt h22. Just put the motor in a few days ago and cannot find the mate for this plug. It's located behind the motor under the intake. Near the rear mount. Here's a pic to help. Please help!

No where. I've never looked up what it is, but the connector is plugged on mine too. It just chills under the intake manifold like that.

It's a "dead end plug".

That's how it's supposed to be.

H22a and H22a4 are different engines. The H22a4 is a USDM factory motor where the H22a is an imported motor used in other countries. The H22a has slightly more power, that's a quick rundown.

Cruise Control

Hi Everyone,

Just bought this. Everything works apart from the cruise control. It's an auto. Can anyone help please. The light comes on and stays on on the dashboard switch but the set switches on the steering wheel don't have any effect.

Here she is. https://flic.kr/p/J72ZFQ https://flic.kr/p/HjNEaU

Have you followed the vacuum lines and cable to make sure everything at the cruise control unit is hooked up properly?

Could be a faulty unit or bad vacuum line. They are pretty simple with the only other component besides the switches and unit in the bay - being a control box located beneath the dash above the steering column.

I'm a Prelude newbie and the motor of my left side window is broken. Here in the Netherlands it is very difficult to optain parts of a prelude. My question is, are Civic window motors compatible with the 5th gen Prelude?

92-95 civic
97-01 crv


I actually have a parts reference guide to help in these types of situations. Located in the 5th gen section http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...625&highlight=


Still a good bit of parts to add, just been busy lately.

I am lazy asking instead of searching for this, but i am a Prelude noob and not in the mood for going through 25 pages for what i think is a simple question googling couldnt solve. Onto that, ive read that more than 250 HP will cause problems with the ATTS system on my '01 Prelude SH, but those sources didnt specify whether that was 250 BHP or 250 WHP, which is it? Im assuming WHP, but some clarification from more experienced owners would be nice. Thank you for your time.

Everyone says that, but I've never seen any proof. If it starts having issues, you can buy a non-ATTS tranny and a bracket that will allow you to bolt up a halfshaft to the SH engine.

Have a 97 base prelude was an automatic car converted to 5 speed I modified the auto Ecu To run the car. I bought a p5m -a02 and had the doctronics immobilizer chip installed but can not get car to start. It cranks just won't start. Not sure if my car being a California car makes a difference Ecu currently in car is a p5m-l52 any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need the transponder key and immobilizer module that go to that ECU.
