Best 5th Gen/Red Top Engine

What is the best year 5th Gen 2.2 VTEC Prelude to buy?
What is the difference between the "Red Top" engine and the regular engine?

(not including the Type S)

Re: Best 5th Gen/Red Top Engine

I believe the 2000 and 2001 models came rated at 200 bhp instead of 195 bhp for the other years (97-99) but when you look at the whp I don't think you'll see a difference of more than 1-2 hp difference at most.

No clue about the red top engines here

The only real difference is if you could get leather seats otherwise 5 bph is just an intake away lol.
