Icon7 Prelude Type-SH top speed

So i have a prelude sh and ive already started fixing her up a bit ( ACT street clutch and flywheel so far...). Im taking it slow but i really want to know what is the top speed of my car right now with just those 2 mods in. I know they might be limited too 135 MPH but im not sure if thats true or not... I also want to know if theres a better top speed for this car and how can it be obtained without disabling ATTS. Thanks guys!!!

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

Disabling ATTS isn't going to lower or raise your top speed. At all. It has nothing to do with it.

An aftermarket clutch and flywheel, not gonna make much of a difference in top speed, if at all.

Why do you want more top speed anyway? Plan on going to the autobahn soon?

Yea, quote for truth. Torque > Speed.

But as far as the OP's question goes, the Prelude should clock out at 150-160 MPH. Obviously, going these speeds with only an aftermarket clutch and flywheel isn't smart in the slightest.

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

I'm just curious to know how fast a lude can really go. I've been Reading up on some reviews online and some say it can only go up2 135mph but I'm not so sure it's true seeing that the speedometer says 150

Yeah I agree. I'm not trying to go that fast with what I have on I know the car won't be able to reach that speed. I've gone like 120mph before on a closed course before and after that the clutch felt a little weird. Probably not the smartest idea in the world but I wanted to find out what the lude can do.

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

If u wanna know the fastest u can go, why not go out late at night when no cars are out, and get on an interstate and just see how fast u can get it?

Ive went 135mph in my auto prelude and I will NEVER do that again unless Im absolutely positive everything on my suspension and my tires can handle it.

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

But yea, I've taken my 5th gen with bolt-ons up to 120 MPH several times. I won't ever go anything above this...If I were to get caught going a buck twenty; my Lude would be automatically impounded, and I would probably get a massive fine. Lol.

Yea I dunno about where you live, but by me if you get caught doing three digits thats an automatic loss of license and impounding.

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

I've heard some pretty scary stories about guys who got caught doing these kind of speeds around where I live and they all had one thing in common... They all got their cars smashed by the cops. Oh and they lost their licenses and had to pay a crazy amount of money... After I heard that I decided that I should stick to the race track by my house. I was never planning on doing this on public streets or maybe even on the race course (it gets pretty scary going in the tripple digits). But thanks guys i think I've got my curiousity about how fast my lude can go satisfied : )

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

I got my bone stock 98 SH up to 120 and there was room to spare. I slowed down cause it was getting trafficky. I'm thinking it could prob get up to 130 without too much crazy happening.

Re: Prelude Type-SH top speed

in jersey you have to be going 40 over the limit for them to impound your car, and you won't necessarily lose your license. You need 12 to lose it and say 105 on the parkway would yield you prob...8-10 points for speeding and reckless driving

ive gotten to 130 on my stock f22b2, haven't topped the H out yet but ive gotten to 110-115 without breaking a sweat

Takes forever? You can hit 90+ in 3rd gear. I got up to 135mph and had a little over 500rpm before red line, scary ****.
