Should i look into it?

Hey guys as I have told you guys my car is totaled but I bought it back for $320 and now have 1600 dollars that is all mine I wanna keep my car but I want something a little faster at the same time... So here is kinda what im thinking as a comprimse.


Honda Prelude H22a1 5spd

Tranny is my only consern. But if that goes out i could replace it with an h23 at my brothers junkyard.. Gimme some advice, me and a buddy are gonna go look at it soon. I really wanna get it because it an h22 which I've been wanting for a while wishing mine was. Gimme some feed back and if this is in the wrong section sorry mods.

hmmmm 1600 may get you somewhere with it but you still have to worry about the rust and how good a shape that engine is in. deff change the trans or get your hands on a lsd trans (jdm)
its a good project check it out and come back and tell us what you saw wrong. im sure some of us can give you some more advice after there are more details

Re: Should i look into it?

LSD trannies aren't really a neccessity. They're gangster though. lol.

I paid $1800 for my 94 VTEC, and it had a junked hood, fender, nostrils, and bumper. It also has a little cancer on the driver's side. The interior is flawless, and the motor runs like a champ. I consider it a good deal. The one you're looking at isn't bad. Better pics are required though.

Re: Should i look into it?

Thats a nice car bro... my 2nd and 3rd grinds as well, but instead of buying a new tranny, ima jus get mine rebuilt.. find out if its cheaper for u to rebuilt instead of buyin a new one, but yea def h22 is a monster. Its a project but trust me 4th gens are easy to work on!

any H&F series trans will swap with one another just not the f20C which is the s2000 trans (for obvious reasons) so yes you can use ur h23 trans with it but i think for the first few gears it will drop you out of VTEC
