non 4ws to 4ws conversion

So I have a 92 si that I'm rebuilding, and converting to 5spd, I was wondering if anyone knows any body that has ever added the 4ws to there non 4ws prelude and what all would be required?

Re: non 4ws to 4ws conversion

im not too sure but if you search i think this topic has been covered before. i wanna say that it is more trouble then its worth and that it would be a whole hell of a lot easier to find a 4ws and buy it then to convert every suspension and steering component and wire in the 4ws.

Re: non 4ws to 4ws conversion

this topic has been covered a lot of times already. i dont believe anyone here has done it, but IMO and others as well it is not worth it. you rather just find a 4ws then do this yourself. more $

Exactly what Rich said.. But i have seen someone on Hondatech do it. He was having problems with aligning the rear wheels. Not many shops ever seen a 4ws and know how to do it.

Re: non 4ws to 4ws conversion

I have seen a thread somewhere where a guy actually did it. The thread was at least ten pages long and took him over six months. He had to get the rack and pinion out of the 4ws lude to have a front steering angle sensor. Mine is already 4ws but if it wasn't, I wouldn't convert it because its too much time and money for me.

I am trying to find that thread, if I do I will post it up.

Re: non 4ws to 4ws conversion

it prolly has but why the 4ws of the 4th gen was not good at all and had alot of problems cause it was electric not mechanical like the 3rd gens. alot of people get rid of the 4ws off the 4th gens. plus 4ws only came in automatic 4th gens.

Re: non 4ws to 4ws conversion

No it didn't. There are more than enough 4WS manual fourth gens to disprove you. I've driven four of them.

Never had a problem with mine minus the resolder issue. Ever driven a 3g or 4g 4ws?

Same here, just had to resolder.
