All wheel drive Prelude?

Has anyone ever converted a 5th gen prelude to an all wheel drive with the cr-v tranny with driveshafts and the differential? lol

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

lets see....
there's been a RWD LS1 swap...
a RWD mid/rear-mounted boosted H22 swap....
a dyno-vid on youtube of a 4G on an AWD dyno which spun the rear wheels which had everyone convinced it was an AWD lude, but wasn't....



what i'm getting at is with enough time/money/resources, anything is possible.

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

This guy that one of the post's above is left out spent well over $60,000 on the entire job.

Why not just buy an S2K, or in this case, an STi, and say you have a AWD car?

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

well there has been a person that made a h22 rear wheel drive prelude with the crv tranny but didn't connect the front drive shafts so i'm sure he could of easily made it an all wheel drive if he wanted to

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

The fastest time attack scion tC is an AWD conversion. So with money it is doable I would think. Additionally, everyone wants a unique car with an edge; an AWD suped-up lude would be a cool sleeper, and do even better in autoX I would think.

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

The rwd 5th gen from super street a few years ago was eventually converted to AWD.


All the information as far as what parts were used were posted at one point. The car was put up for sale in VA for $15k when I talked to the owner last year. Never heard if he sold it, more than likely it's still in storage.



It's far from cheap. Not really worth it in my opinion. Research and get a good job.

Re: All wheel drive Prelude?

This possibly could be resolved by fabricating in a wagovan transaxle/transfer case with some reinforcement done to it maybe add a quaife lsd and install a rear differential which may need to be fabricated at a machine shop while you're at it so it's not just a joke in turns and it can abuse it's 4ws even more. You could use the wagovan differential with a bit of welding reinforcement but it's probably better to get an aftermarket one and fabricate in. Cheap won't be as good or fun as long lasting and fast. Would end up costing in the region of 25 grand after you did the 4ws upgrading that would be necessary from the stress on the back end even not turbo'd, but that's what any AWD tuner project with a good engine/shell costs. Evo, STI, unless you go with a VW or an Audi you're not going to get a better deal than one of these 'ludes with 4ws and AWD with 25-30k invested. Think long term investments in a seperate car you don't need to worry about driving and piece it together a little at a time.
