    I can't find a source on the internet. Or am I just not good at the internet? I see there are some USED (like used-used) looking ones claiming to be "working correctly." But I don't see 22yo LMA's "working CORRECTLY." And there are a lot of LMA'S for the '99 model with the spring, the '97-'98...

    Ok so I'm new here and a new "Lude" owner. I'm thinking that I'm running rich and might have a blown head gasket. I've got a gassy and rotten smell outside the car clearly from the exhaust. And it will have white smoke when I sit at an idle and take off there's a cloud of it with a bad smell...

    Some pals and I are racing a gen3 Prelude in LeMons. The car is an '88 Si and performs well, though with nearly 270,000 miles we've had to replace various things. Last winter we rebuilt the engine, boring the B20 out to 83mm to take B21 pistons (aftermarket from RockAuto) and doing some minor...

    Can someone tell me what the service limit for the standard head gasket is with regards to over boring on a B20AX engine? I'm trying to find info but it doesn't seem to be discussed much. From what i understand the limit is 81.25mm is this correct? I have also heard of it being taken to 82mm...

    whats the best way to check if the head gasket is on straight, I was missing a dowel so i lined it up with 4 outside bolts and dropped it down I've only tightened to 54 lb ft so far, would it be terrible to take it off and try again? the bolts dropped in fairly easy, and tightened without a...
