Maybe Another Prelude for me???

Well in case any of you havent heard, I got a DUI recently and I've been looking to start rebuilding my lude it was fuccked up pretty bad. I was possibly looking into buying a donor car, but I wasnt sure what route to take with it. I actually started getting pretty disappointed lately, but now buddy of mine sent me this ....

http://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/880714246.html

I'm about to just pick that up, from what it sounds like he has the parts to rebuild it, and I'll just buy an engine stand b/c some asshole scrapped mine. I have the rims, momo replica steering wheel, shiftknob, speakers headunit, sub, Intake, slotted rotors and exhaust that fit it, so maybe I'll just swap those onto that lude and part my other one out.

Any suggestions? I know they made a JDM H23 Vtec, but did they make a JDM h23 NON vtec ????

oooooo SE wheeelssss. tryna be like me again, nick
(this captain is kicking in already. sheeshhh )



pretty sure there wasn't a non-vtec JDM H23, but i might be wwrong. our USDM H23 is almost identical to the JDM F22B, so that MIGHT be whats under there.

Re: Maybe Another Prelude for me???

yea I just got done calling but no answer. and I'd swap out the SE wheels, just b/c your ugly ass has them.

I just got done researching a little bit, and the only JDM h23 is the vtec so I'm not sure what this douche is talkin about. as soon as I get a hold of him I'm gonna ask him to read me the engine code.

Anyone in south jersey have access to a cherry picker, or wanna help me swap the motor and build??? I pay for beer and I'll grill some steaks or somethin. It'd be nice to have an extra hand around ...

*EDIT* A lap dance may be negotiable depending on your experience. And yes its going to be me giving it.

Re: Maybe Another Prelude for me???

that one needs paint and a lotta help, and i like em better red personally, those "glass fenders" he has are complete jack ****, my friend has them and he always has to fix them because they break and bend and ****.

so you'll need a swap new fenders and paint to make it look even DECENT compared to the lude you have now.

Re: Maybe Another Prelude for me???

I'm going to look at it monday at 5:30.

Glass fenders can be replaced from my car, along with the aftermarket parts, then I'm going to part mine out.

My lude isnt really bad, but from what a buddy of mine said (he's a mechanic at a local auto shop) it looks like the bushings are torn, but the bad part is that the frame that the arms connect to looks really bent. he said he cant get underneath it all the way in my garage, but he said it doesnt look good.

Anyway, the car he said just burns a little oil, and like in the post he has rods and a crank for it. I'm going to see what rods and crank he went with, and I'll just rebuild it. I see a boosted h23 coming in my future

Re: Maybe Another Prelude for me???

Paint is the least of my worries believe me.
Motor & Trans > Suspension > Exterior (dents dings etc) > Paint > Interior

But I think I might have to part the lude out. Anyone serious about parts??? This way I know what I'll be looking at and how long it will take me to get the money together?
