RHD Prelude Project

Hey guys, well I finally decided to buy my first honda and well it turned out to be a RHD prelude. I gutted out the entire interior to clean it and im slowly putting it back together. Its an h22a1 motor vtec 5speed with black leather interior. Im new to the honda scene so if i say something that doesnt make sense forgive me and teach me lol constructive criticism welcome (note constructive).

There are a couple things I need to get asap. Any help greatly appreciated.
1. ECU, from the research I've done I need a p13. Please advise.
2. Turn signal switch. RHD (broken)
3. Sunroof switch. From what I can see the switch goes on the console itself since on the dash there is a slot for coins and whatnot.
4. Gas tank release and trunk release cables. RHD

Thats all I can think of as of now.

Re: RHD Prelude Project

Looks like fun. I'm tired of having my E-brake so close to me, so if you ever do too, I might trade you my bare LHD console for your bare RHD one :) Welcome to the addiction.

Re: RHD Prelude Project

I scored some leather inserts for the door panels and rear panels, they look pretty sweet. My friend found some and let me keep them. Thanks drewlude +1

I need some black carpet. Let me know if anybody is selling some in good condition.

I also just bought a p13 ecu. Waiting for that to come in before i get going on more things. Also bought new spark plug wires since i was missing them.

Also need a rear speaker deck lid in good condition. Mines all beat up and cracked so i took it off.

Re: RHD Prelude Project

Hey guys so I finally got my ecu yesterday as well as a battery. So when I went to install
my spark plug wires I get the surprise that they are too short? Obviously they are the wrong wires since they don't reach the spark plugs. What spark plug wires should be used with a prelude with jdm h22a swap? Part #

Re: RHD Prelude Project

to make things easy when ever i go to autozone or pepboys i say i haev a 97 prelude. few times i made the mistake of saying i have 92, 2.2 which only had the h23 and f22 so they think i have the f22 not h22. soo just say 97 because 5th gens only had the h22
