Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

i would recommend pulling the head off the block first to see what kind of damage has been done. then take it to a machinist and have it checked for straightness, theres a good chance you may have warped the head when the HG blew. then after you have paid for the machining and figured your pricing for the things you will need. which include HG, VC gasket, cam seal, valve stem seals, etc. you will know if you have enough for performance items such as cams and a new valvetrain. but when you upgrade cams you really need to get your car tuned to make the cams really shine and you should also upgrade your header/exhaust. but a good exhaust/header setup can cost around $750-$1K.

Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

I've been doing a bit of research that this particular thread poses an opportunity for me to interject a question upon, and also which what I list could give the OP some ideas for upgrades :)..

In the event that metalhead960 does infact COMPLETELY build up his drivetrain; Port/polish, cams/springs/retainers, header/exhaust, intake manifold, clutch/flywheel, and a tune... is it a legitimate worry that our FRM block may need resleeving like it would with forced induction? Or does resleeving only come into play with turbo'ing or supercharging?

It depends on what compression ratio u wanna run. Of course u can use type s pistons and have a 11:1 cr. U can also use mahle gold series pistons which have a 11:5:1 cr. But I've heard VERY mixed reviews on the mahle pistons. I personally wouldnt try them. Any higher cr than that is gonna require forged pistons and your block to be sleeved. Also u dont HAVE to sleeve your block if your going boost. Ive seen multiple ppl run a h22 with stock sleeves and around 5-7 psi.

Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

What if you're like this guy though and not planning on building up the bottom end? Stock pistons and all, just completely upgraded top end?

Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

for 2600 you're not going to be able to completely build the top end of a motor. that will get you a good set of stage one cams, all gaskets and seals required, a good exhaust set up, and a tune at best. and thats if you really stretch your money and find a tuner that doesnt cost an arm and a leg.

for my planned build I will have around 2500 in the valvetrain, cams, and port work alone.

Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

I'm just speaking theoretically..Is there any reason to get the block sleeved if you're only upgrading the valvetrain?

Re: 2001 honda prelude rebuild kit

depends on what cams you want to use. to get the most out of stage 3 or custom cams you would need to sleeve your block so that you can install forged high compression pistons.
