Thank you for the information to links. I really appreciate it. All im looking for is fuel efficiency. I drive close to 500 miles a week. So for $100 cost i dont see it hurting me as bad. Its just a daily. Most everything i read says itll be a great swap. Or have u done it and had a different result on an accord

I am running an Accord P2A8 fifth gear in my 2000SH. Now 80MPH is 3350RPM vs 4000RPM before. I estimate that my top end now is ~170MPH (if the ECU would let me rev to 7400RPM in fifth). I also get 420mi+ per tank of gas.

Not without some crazy headwork, cams, fuel upgrades

I ended up matching the axles with the transmission. The Accord axles fit the Prelude fine.
