Hey everybody my names Stephin/Seven and im from Los Angeles, CA . I own a 1998 US BB6 BASE (5th gen so everyone knows haha) that I purchased roughly 3 years ago after wanting to get my hands on one for about 8 years (im 26 btw). Ive loved Preludes since the first time I saw one in highschool. To make a long story short in under 2 months after purchasing her I spun a bearing and snapped a rod (dont drop gears doing 120 trying to rev when motors got 151XXX *facepalm*). I decided that I was going to keep her until I could get the JDM swap because she was just too clean (I had 2 mechanics try an buy her off me with the dead engine haha). 3 years and 2 cars later (mind you im a college kid doing all this on a budget) I FINALLY dropped in the JDM H22A SiR (I run 5 speed) w +/- 25k. I know its not a red top but at least I got a REAL Prelude engine (Sorry H23 guys just how I feel lol) and I get to say its a JDM. I personally feel like theres a little more "umph" to the ride now as well. Ive been reading PP, HT, and PO for YEARS and have learned so much information that has really really helped me. Just in the last few days after getting the swap I received the dreaded p0505 // 14 code. After going through the process I changed the intake screw SLIGHTLY, cleaned out the IACV an BAM no more code!!! Next day driving idle bounces and codes back... well thanks to you guys I then knew to and did open up and take care of the FITV. Now everythings running PERFECT and it wouldnt have been possible without this longstanding community full of some of the best enthusiast coming together. So thats a bit on my story and im excited to be a part of the community!

TL;DR 1998 US BB6 H22A SiR / 26 yo Los Angeles,CA / PP Fan / Newbie
