  4. 3rd Gen_ 1989 4ws Prelude Si from Hawaii

    Builds
    This will be a slow build but I've done a lot to my 1989 Prelude. One reason why Prelude is not only my 1st model car but also I bought this when my grandma died. Every time I'm inside the car I always remember her and feel same. But above all the reason I enjoy driving the car so I decided to...
  5. Build a new H22 or Build my F22?

    4th Gen
    I have a 92 prelude S and I absolutely love the car, except it's obvious that the engine is getting a little tired. By the end of the summer I want to either rebuild it or replace it. My end goal for the car is to throw a turbo on it, since I absolutely love the prelude platform and would swap...

    3rd Gen
    Hey guys, so the B21a1 is definitely and finally toast at 357'000 kms :/ it runs and revs, but it's got a pretty serious knock in the bottom end, so it's time for me to start thinking about building a real engine. I'm in school now so I won't be building for at least 8 months, but I want to...
