    The 91 is still going strong, only about 200 miles over the last couple winter months as she needs some TLC before going back into daily service in this spring again. What I've done: Replaced the clutch master cylinder (again) and hopefully this one isn't a dud (last one went about 10k miles...

    Hey Preluders! First time posting here. Got a quick question for the "pros" out there. My 16 yr old son has a 2000 Prelude, base model with an automatic tranny, and not Type S. When he got it we spent about a grand on it putting new tires, brakes, suspension, flushing all fluids, replacing...
  4. Tranny Swap Shifter cable length

    5th Gen
    I'm getting ready to do a 5th gen tranny swap (Auto is pooped out). I've read through all the swap threads and see it says you can use a 4th gen Shifter.
