bad news

well it seem that the eacv is around $200 bucks , but whats worse is i have water pouring outta my muffler like a faucett

so that means ..................new head gasket at the very least

oh well might as well port and polish while i have it off (i was going to get around to it sooner or later anyhow)

oh yeah im also going to re-ring the pistons and throw in some new bearings

or i could just steal the b20a3 from the accord its fuel injected atleast!!

what do ya'll think?

I think you should seriously consider an F/I swap.
S --> Si swap. Lotsa pics.


B20a3 is your current motor, carb'ed.
What you want is a b20a5 or a JDM b20a ---not the Accord b20a's.

Oh cool man, i hear you.
No, i didn't quite feel what you wanted out of your Prelude.



check out this for some inspiration:
170hp All Motor `85 Prelude

Best of luck, what Accord do you have?

Cash68 can only hope to improve
I really doubt getting 100hp per liter out of a carbed A20 is possible, without boost or bumping up the displacment. You're talking about pretty insane MEPs.
