hi... i wanted to know of any good scratch removers on the market....the previous owner wasnt too careful with the rear bumper...

The only thing I have used is "Scratch Doctor" and it seemed to work good, but only on fine or minor scratches.

also.. how can i remove the prelude letters on the back as well as the Vtec sticker withouth damaging the paint?

thanks for the response...

5spd all the way for a fun, sporty, driver's car like these. Personally, I like manual in almost anything, but these are definitely cars to get a 5spd in if you can. And with Preludes, the auto's suck, anyway, just ask anyone who has one. Not that the car is that bad, but the SS tranny is weak, slow, heavy, unreliable, and completely prevents you from making the car any faster.

My lude burns 1qt of conventional oil in about 3000 miles. I'd say that is about average for a prelude with 125k. I wouldn't worry unless it burns 1 quart every 500 miles or something. BTW, I drive like a normal luder, aka some vtec. :smilejap:

well, i wud have to say with daily driving, the usage of hitting vtec at least once a day or so...prolly about 3 months and im about 1/4 -1/2 down. Depends how hard and how often i hit vtec and my driving habits are. Sumtimes it never goes down or hardly and sumtimes its pretty low.

"Hey guys, I am currently running Mobile 1 5w-30 fully synthetic in my car. I feel better about doing this in the winter time here in Ohio since it can get pretty cold. Should I switch to 10w-30 in the summer? I know that 5w-30 should be fine but would switching between two viscosities be hard on the engine? Maybe I won't burn as much 10w-30? (I burn about 3/4 of a quart of 5w-30 in 3000 miles now, not bad I know but it could be better) Would it be ok to switch to 10w-30 in the summer or should I still stick with 5w-30? It just seems so thin sometimes...although they should be the same viscosity when warmed up right? (See the link JLude posted a while back about oil viscosities).

Thanks."

Check this thread for bolt on mods. <---blake's, you should listen to him,

As for intakes and exhausts, check the resource thread. There is a picture thread of exhausts, a thread for exhaust clips, as well as some clips of the V2 intake among other goodies.

All of which are stickies

Yeah, the resource thread is the shit, many of us have spent alot of time putting together some great articles for it, so check it out.

As far as oil goes, yeah, you should be fine with 10W30 if ya want, hell, I've still got some in my car now. Though 5W30 would work fine, remember that non-synthetic 5W30 Mobil1 is the OEM Honda oil (you have to buy the Mobil 1 5000, everything else from them is synthetic).

I have a question. My prelude temp gauge never went over the half way point. But now its going over the half way mark up about to the top of the thermostat on dash. This has not been happening all the time but it does happen when I am sitting idle for awhile sometime. But once the fans come on it goes back down to the normal spot. Is my thermostat going out. Thanks for the Help.

Go with cheaper stuff first. First, make sure your radiator is actually full. Then make sure your rad. cap is working. Then, get a new Honda thermostat by PM'ing the pp.com user Honda4Life. If that doesn't work, PM him for a water pump. Don't use cheap Autozone shit on Preludes, Honda Genuine Parts ftw!
