5th gens.

hey guys well im back after my computer being down for a lil bit so im a lil behing in all this 5th gen topics goin around so sorry for any repeats and such.
i went to a new jdm shop today and its was an awesome experience never seen anything like it..
i was asking for a conversion kit they didnt have one for my car but they did have a full JDM type s prelude...
he said it would swap fine i just wouldnt use the RWS part of the car.
is this true? it dont make sense to me but if it is my car will be swapped ASAP

Re: 5th gens.

Hang on, what are you after?

Firstly, few if any Type S Preludes were 4WS. In fact I'm 99.75% sure that none were, so any 4WS Type S is a mock-up.

Secondly, the BB8 underbody section at the rear is totally different to the BB6, which will make swapping the 4WS rear end in pretty bloody hard. Not to mention all the rest of the sensors, extra wiring loom, power to the 4WS motors, etc.

I'm not saying don't do it, but it's a huge amount of work for what appears to me to be incredibly little gain. Sure, you have a 4WS fifth gen Prelude, possibly the only one in North America, but is that worth it? Really?

Re: 5th gens.

That will be alot of dough for something that probably isn't really worth it, haha... but then again, it is your car so do what you would like.

They say it will swap - and it can be done - but it will cost you an arm and leg and both your knee caps, and ultimately that is what they want, your money!
