Icon5 How long does my b21 have to live???

Hello~

I am a newbie to the Prelude lifestyle. I was hunting for a Honda and came across a 1990 Si Prelude with 194,000 miles for only $500. I test drove it and found that it had a water leak somewhere, but other than that, it felt solid. I bought it and have replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, timing belt and water pump. I was wondering, how much longer does my b21a1 have to live? How long have you guys gone before your motor threw a rod or spun a bearing or something??

Keep a watch on that engine, due the FRM sleeves in the block it causes piston ring wear prematurley, which in turn, will cause smoking and oil consumption and eventually a whole in your block if not taken cared of.
