    4 days ago the engine seized while I was on the highway, today the car finally arrived at the shop, and when we started the engine it was shaking back and forth a lot, sounded like it was working with 2 pistons and there were loud bangs from inside. The oil dipstick barely touched any oil. So...
  2. Introduction
    Hi, I'm Rafael from Portugal and I bought a stock '88 Honda Prelude 4WS with 150hp as my first car, 2 years ago, and I'm here cause after 2 years and a full body restoration, I broke the car. I had been going at 200KPH (125MPH) for a while, then I eased up a little bit, and to around 150KPH...
  3. Part Outs
    Asking $3k otd obo for the motor Maybe I'll find another prelude in need of some love with the money I get from the part out and just start over. I can't just leave it here or call a junk car service that will bring dishonor to my family. Haha. • KStuned Installed Balance Shaft Delete Kit with...

    So I recently brought my prelude into a shop after having issues only to find out I need a new short block. I don’t know if it’s worth it to revive the car or not and how to even go about it. Would it be better to do a whole engine swap or just replace the shortblock?

    My girlfriend has a 99 Honda prelude that has cruise control buttons on the steering wheel and I know it has the cruise control module in the engine bay but it doesn't have an on or off button. Any search says it should be where the fog light button is but it's not there. It didn't have a fuse...

    Husband decided to wash engine and now it shuts off within a minute or hesitates when trying to accelerate if it does happen to stay on.

    Let’s say hypothetically, if I were to engine swap a 3rd gen 1990 Honda prelude. What would be one of the best and or the most affordable (doesn’t have to be dirt cheap just not above $9,000 or $10,000) engine to swap?

    Hello, I'm rebuilding my 1999 Honda Prelude Type SH and live outside Philadelphia. I will be starting with the transmission and clutch and will then focus on the engine and finally the bodywork. I was wondering if anyone is from the tri-state area and had any good recommendations for where...

    I'm in the planning stages of my 89' build and was wondering what the prelude in it's stock form has to improve on. I'm not looking for performance, rather just reliability and overall drivability. The point of the build is to get together a prelude I wouldn't feel bad about dailying and won't...

    Hey! I have a problem with my lude -92 2.3l It starts and runs perfectly while cold. But once it gets up in temp (see this picture) it wont start IF i turn it off. I have removed and checked the main relay and it looked fine. After runnings some tests with a multimeter it turns out to be...

    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...

    Hey all, new to the forum. A little backstory on my car: I picked up a 5 speed 2001 base model prelude 7 months ago. It's my first car and I knew next to nothing when I picked it up (still do not know a ton); so of course I was sold an oil burning lemon. About 2 months ago, it started having an...

    If this is in the wrong place I apologize. I've read thru the boards and searched for similar questions but need direct advice from the prelude gurus out there. I have a 99 prelude with 183000 miles. 5 speed. I bought it new and have driven it daily for almost 15 years. A couple of weeks...

    Alright, sorry if this isn't necessarily deserving of it's own thread, if that's the case, then I will gladly delete it, just let me know. I was gonna ask this in the H22 swap thread, but I kinda felt like this was a topic that deserved it's own thread, due to the fact it could really be for...
  18. Forced Induction
    I was wondering if there are any superchargers for an A18? Costs don't matter really. I'm wondering whether I could buy one or whether I would have to get a custom made one. Also if I do this, it will be in the distant future when I have put an LSD in it.

    What are some mods for an A18A engine?
