falbert's 95 jdm prelude vtec

so my car has finally landed here in edmonton, waited almost 2 months to get it shipped from japan. i just checked the car out yesterday but wasnt able to pick it up since i havent gotten it plated yet and insurance and all that. and battery is flat, car wont even turn over i think its too cold here for that jdm battery and couldnt handle -35 here in canada hhaha. aanyways here are some pics.

car has no mods yet except for the nav system the previous owner had installed which looks pretty nice but i wont be able to use here in canada so its coming off once it gets warmer here.

car is a 1995 vtec, future mods i have planned are for the next couple weeks are:

getting it lowered
tint
and i have some nice 17" rims waiting for it, then a bunch of basic tuning mods

Re: falbert's 95 jdm prelude vtec

havent really driven it yet. but its got the h22a engine, we can be found in the sr-v models and US vtec which has the h22a1 which is a bit weaker than the regular h22a according to the charts. correct me if im wrong and i t also has upgraded braking system (rotors are a bit bigger)

Re: falbert's 95 jdm prelude vtec

exactly haha! this is my 2nd jdm. i got a 94 subaru wrx couple years ago and it only had 80,000km when i got it and still running strong now that its got 110,000 but i just cant afford it on gas anymore haha which is why i bought this lude, wanted someting better on gas and still fun to drive. btw this prelude only has 36,000km which is pretty sick, actually had a hard time finding this one and getting all the paperworks and history checked but good thing my importer has a lot of connections in japland
