Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
What's up everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I have decided to redo my Prelude and I would love it if my fellow Prelude enthusiasts went along with me on this build. The actual build will be exclusively on my friend's blog entitled, THE CHRONICLES. Follow along with me as I set out to force the eyes of the car enthusiast world on to a Prelude and make them love and respect it as much as we all do.

Do it once, do it right. Looks like you're taking that to heart. I didn't look at it all yet, but it looks good man.

Re: Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
i have to say your prelude is one of the nicest i have ever seen, even for a space ship. :tongue:

so why are you completely redoing it?

BigMike 06-11-2009 12:48 PM

Re: Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
Thank man, I appreciate that.

I am redoing it simply because I must. I love building cars and as it currently exists, my Prelude is nice and I am pleased with how my vision for the car ended up turning out. But I always want to redo and outdo myself, and with this new build I am going all out.

BigMike 06-11-2009 12:49 PM

Re: Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
I really would love to have the whole Prelude community with me on this build (yes, 4th AND 5th genners, hahaha). I am a hardcore Honda enthusiast and I absolutely love the Prelude, and I am building a car that will make the word "Prelude" become a staple in the mouths of the all of the heads that leave shows and meets and track days, instead of just "Civic" and "Integra". So please, make it part of your day to head over to THE CHRONICLES at www.stickydiljoe.com and follow along with my build. Get as many people as you can too, and lets hit the game HARD with this car.

Re: Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
i know what you're sayin, i love the hell outta the prelude, and its disappointing when i goto import shows and maybe 2% of the cars are preludes. i also have a 3rd gen for a DD. i read the whole blog about your car. have you heard anything from Bisi as to when the H series header will be readily available?

twokexlv6coupe 06-11-2009 01:58 PM

Re: Big Mike's Prelude REBUILD
 
Bisi doing anything on an H is blasphemy.....



F-series FO LIIIFEEEE!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU for reading the blog bro! Stay tuned with me as I continue...

As for BISIMOTO and the H-series header, they are looking at a release around Sept. or Oct., but you can call them a bit earlier than that to set up a "pre-order" (so to speak) with them in which they will take the specifications of your motor (as well as other pertinent information) to begin the design of each individual's header. For those that don't know, they DO NOT sell "shelf" headers! Each unit is designed for each customer.
