Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

Hi, I currently don't own a prelude but will soon if everything goes well and I saw a seller selling his 2000 Honda prelude SI-vtec so I was wondering if there is any difference between that and type SH?

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

the fifth gen's (97-01) dont come in SI... Either it's a base model or SH in america... Then there's the type S from japan and some other random canadian models and europian models and stuff lol.

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

talkin 4th gen or 5th gen? maybe the seller dont know what he got, if its a "si-vtec" it will be a 92-96 model which has a roundy front. and triangle lights in the back

if its an actual 5th gen it will be like the avatar on Pingo's or the shape like my sig

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

I don't know man, I don't think it's an SH... From what I can tell, it has the blade rims of a base.... It is easy to tell if its an SH when you go and look at it by the courtesy light on the bottom of the door, or when you put the key in and turn to ignition on or whatever there will be an ATTS light.... there are more ways to tell stickied in the 5th gen resources guide i believe you should probably check it out.

It's a base w/ auto. You can see the gear indicator lights in the cluster. He just has a shift boot on it.

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

you sure about that??? i see the 5spd gauge cluster. the RPMs wrap all the way around the gauge. and where the shifter is sitting is 1st... park isn't that far over to the left. and when the auto shifter is in park, the its still vertical. you can see a slight angle on the shifter. and he is advertising it as a 5spd. if its not thats false advertisement...

Plus, I'm pretty sure all SH Preludes come with the OEM lip kit, which that one does not have.

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

its a base 5-speed. it has the 5 speed gauge cluster. the rims are blades like on the base model. most people wouldn't switch the SH rims with the base.

Differences Between Base and SH Models
people make "Frankenstein" cars all the time.. best advice is "look under the hood and then check the VIN number/hardware in front of you". want a decent 'lude? "know" what your looking for! Know what VIN's mean, check engine codes, carfax; all = protect yourself.

Differences Between Base and SH Models

Yes! Always get the vin number of a car ur interested in buying and CARFAX it!

Another way to tell if it's a base or SH is to look at the 3rd brake light. The base model comes with a 3rd brake light INSIDE the car in the middle of the back window. The SH did not come with a 3rd brake light in the car but on the rear spoiler. If it has both then it's a base model with a sh spoiler.

Re: Difference between Si-vtec and type SH?

Can somebody close this thread already? It's already been established that it's a base 5sp. And I do remember Top End saying "/thread"

So...
