going from turbo back to stock? sounds like a big waste.lenjaiah said:i am going to check out this prelude tomorrow. i will take pictures of the engine bay in and out. post it up. let me know what you see and what you dont. is that cool with you?
Maybe, unless if you're trying to sell the car...Ask yourself, would you really want to buy a Prelude that has been turbo charged? People can say that's it reliable, but nothing is more reliable than a stock motorborcth said:going from turbo back to stock? sounds like a big waste.
it could also have been done if they just put on an aftermarket header. doesn't necessarily mean the stock header was replaced w/ a turbo manifold.JLude said:Look at the exhaust manifold, are the bolts new? really rusted? Usually you can tell if the exhaust manifold has been removed just by looking at it...that would have been done if it was turboed.

if the person knows what they're doing they can cover up the fact that any modding was done. i personally kept all stock nuts, bolts, etc when i put my car back to stock. there was no way anyone could have known it was modded by looking at the engine bay.
my best suggestion is to do a compression check/leak down test. this will give you a good idea if there are any problems. if the motor is in good condition, it doesn't matter that it was modded, imo.
