I got this 98 Prelude SH back in December, so anywork done to it was before my time of ownership. I asked the previous guy if he had done anything, and he said just intake and exhaust. According to the vehicle report I pulled from Carfax before buying, he only owned the car for about 10,000 miles :Rock: Too bad for him, because the car is in excellent shape!!!


Anyways, the other night, a friend walks up while I am idling, and he stops and listens, and says "I hear cams, do you have them installed?" And I could't say yes or no, because I don't know. :jehon:

So how do I know if there are aftermarket cams on my Prelude? Is there an easy way to tell? Let me know!!

take the valve cover off and look to see if they look any different than a stock set if he claims he can hear a difference they they must be somewhat mild or agressive so you should be able to tell. But i dont think you do because they guy would have told you they were there cause he could have charged more.

nah probably just stock cams. i can hear mine clicking too.
Agreed. I do have slight clicking too.

The guy probably wouldn't know the sound of a Prelude from any other car, but hey, you never know, maybe he is/ was a Honda fanatic.

2.2L, thanks for your helpful post. This is the internet?

:jehon: You can hear my well tuned stage 1's, and the car doesn't give me any problems at all because of it. But the only person besides me who could hear the difference is a buddy of mine who's a hardcore honda nut.....
