    Has anyone got experience with using 2nd gen gold top cams as i am able to source some for cheap. Only found one post from 2003 by nzluder but was wondering if im better off getting my cams reground instead. I am putting them on a b20a7. Did u see gains and did the car run fine on stock ecu?

    I am pulling then engine on my 5th gen. what are some things i can do while the motor is out? like exterior seals and such. I want a refreshed engine without doing a complete rebuild, it doesnt need that. It burns a bit of oil and there is a leak behind the timing cover. does anyone have any...

    Hey guys I got a 1990 si with a jdm b20a black top. I just bought the car recently not starting thought I can fix it turned out to be low compression. I saw a b20a gold top pop up for sale near. I was wondering if it’s a direct bolt on my 3rd gen with the 5 speed I have.

    So I bought a 2000 auto Prelude with approximately 170,000kms a couple of months ago. The dude said it had "no compression" and burnt lots of oil. I bought it and got it into my garage. I decided that I would try to rebuild the engine and get the car back to decent condition. The only problem is...

    I was driving today and I noticed that the car would not rev quick. it would rev slowly towards 4k rpms. then it would make a “woo woo woo” sound. Any idea of what is going on? Any help appreciated! TIA. Streamable Video Then I drove home and revved it up to 4.5k from idle and the engine...

    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...

    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...
  17. 3rd Gen
    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...
