Re: Just got this motor

Looks pretty good. Glad you got what you wanted. I've heard mixed reviews from people that go through Tiger Japanese, so hopefully you're one of the good reviewees haha.

Re: Just got this motor

LOL I hope so to man, the way things have gone for me the past month something good has to happen.

1.) prelude recalls in ignition started acting up, car shutting off while driving
2.) Ignition went out
3.) Motor leaking oil, burning oil
4.) Kids spray paint my lude
5.) Back into my fiance car the day after car got spray painted
6.) car just sitting in driveway

All this in a 3 week period

Re: Just got this motor

It's the curse.

Oh didn't you know that all Prelude's are cursed?

Now you do.

I had the worst run of luck with my first Prelude the first year I had it.

Re: Just got this motor

Don't get to talking with dbd about the curse, he's had a **** ton of bad luck with his.

TigerJapanese is a 50/50 between a halfway decent motor and a giant paperweight with 300,000 miles. Thats what you get when you buy cheap engines, hope yours doesn't become a statistic.


btw dbd, nice avatar.

Re: Just got this motor

It looks pretty good. I bought my jdm h22 obd1 about a week ago from ebay for 1100, so you got a pretty good price. my mechanic took the valve cover off when it came and he said it couldnt have more thank 20k on it. He'll be done with it by the end of the week end, so i'll let you know how it runs. how much was your shipping?

Re: Just got this motor

well the motor is running great right now, I have put about 200 miles on it right now and no problems. The mechanic said he looked inside motor and it was indeed about 25-35k miles on it. Looked nice and clean with good compression. Only problem I can say i had was they shipped a obd1 not obd2 like I asked for and 1-2 little parts were broken during shipment. all in all it worked
