1993 prelude SI

Hey guys I just bought a 1993 prelude so. I was just looking around in the engine and saw that it has a k&n cai. The guy I bought it from said he put a 3'' shortening kit on it. I'm just wondering around to see what you guys think I should put on it to give it a lot more horses. Also the timing belt broke on the way home, so if you can give me some good advice on what to do with the engine and extra performance parts to put on it. Thanks.

Umm, if the timing belt broke then chances are the motor is toast. These things have interference engines so the Pistons and valves occupy the same space just at different times, if the timing goes out then the touch each other. The head will have to be pulled and checked for bent valves, hopefully that is the extent of the damage. If the Pistons are dented then it's probably time for a new motor.

You have bigger concerns than the air intake, but when you get there then nothing beats the stock intake.

Thanks, but does it make a difference that I had it towed to my house after it broke. Just wondering bc I might just sell it to get a different car.

Re: 1993 prelude SI

any damage that occurs, does so whilst breaking. depends on how quickly the engine came to a halt. compression test is in the cards for you..
