5th gen prelude rebuild

Hi guys, just givin you all a bit of what I have been doing with my prelude

Engine-
New Rebuild:
Type S pistons
Eagle Rods
Cower Stage 1 Cams
OEM rod bearings
OEM head bolts
Short Ram Intake
Skunk2 Intake Manifold (coming soon)
Skunk2 68mm TB (coming soon)
OBD2 to OBD1 conversion (coming soon)
P28 ECU (coming soon)
The car currently has 1500 miles on it since the rebuild, all the "coming soon" parts will hopefully be in later this month. Once these parts are on I will be headed to the cities for a tune

Interior-
Apex'i AFC Neo
Painted Gauge rings silver

Suspension-
Front Strut Bar
Rear Strut Bar
Rear Lower Tie Bar
Tein Performance Springs


Alright on to the Rebuild!
The entire project happened over christmas break after I got all the parts in, my friend Mike who works at a honda dealership and myself did the entire project in my garage.
We took everything apart down to the block, removed the oil pan and began to remove the old stock pistons, we popped in the new pistons which ended up taking awhile (i really think that the piston ring compressors are fricken gay, there so cheap haha) After we got the new pistons in and put the head back on I ran into a snag that a couple of you guys may know of... It was with my crower cams that I had just got, anyway to make a long story short the camshafts were incorrectly stamped so that it had the intake label on the exhaust cam haha but after I got ahold of Crower after a week of calling because they were closed for the holidays we got it figured out
lol but then after we got the cams in we continued to reassemble the motor until we finished.

-I suppose I can elaborate more if any of you are interested just let me know

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

it wasn't a problem for me, i actually found it to be the most enjoyable part of the build, getting the new pistons in without ruining the cylinder wall or the rings was by far the hardest part. but you absolutely have to know what your doing before you take off that valve cover and start tinkering around

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

well the type s pistons are supposed to get you between 215-220hp cause the compression, but i really cant tell because it isnt tuned, and I added cams and other things so its difficult to even guess for you

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

Did it seem to give you more kick in the pants? The cam must be sick!!!!!! Pump gas still good on her? I have awesome compression on my car but no fuel and spark. I cant drive right now and its cold here so i only tinker with it once and a while. My first rebuild i did ferrea valve train, crower retainers, polish and oversized valves and stock pistons. The car ripped to rev limiter and asked for more!!!

yeah ive definetly got some more power to play with, the cams still need to be tuned for the intake and exhaust degree so they arent giving as much as they have. im ordering my intake manifold tomorrow so i will be one step closer to finishing the motor part of my project and one step closer to getting it tuned

Did you have to pull the engine to get the rods and pistons in?

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

skunk2 IM is crap on an N/A engine, go for Rosko prepared EuroR. what header are you going with? i would be very surprised if this light of a build made it to 220whp. after the tune.

false statement, the Type S motors also have a higher profile cam which causes the extra 20 BHP not wheel horse power.

Oh Yeah! i forgot about the cams... wow my bad haha

but i was thinkin about doin the DC sports header with the Greddy SP2 exhaust.. i know there are better choices for a header out there but they all seem to cost too much for the return

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

might as well leave your stock header on, do not waste your money on a DC. if you dont want to spend alot of money look into the Hytech Replica it shows pretty good gains and doesnt empty your wallet. or if you wanted to take an even cheaper route get the megan racing off of ebay and do the 2.5" collector mod.

Re: 5th gen prelude rebuild

Must be nice not having emission laws.... You have so much more freedom. But anyway I'd say go with the Hytech Replica like 1BadBB6 said.

dont you think the stock header would be more power efficient than a cheap ebay one?

I'd give it around 190-200whp / 155-160tq with the euroR IM on our dyno.
