I should prob post a member's ride for this..

It just didn't feel right with only three pictures and me not having much money put into it. I just wanted to update you guys on my recent purchase of a 2001 with 110k miles, 5 speed.

I previously had a nordic mist auto before this, and couldn't stand driving a Prelude that wasn't a standard, it just didn't feel right (sport shift just didn't cut it for me, sorry)

Anyways, here is some pictures of it along with my fellow luder/ bestfriend Cody.


(To all the mods, I didn't know whether to make a member's ride yet or wait till I actually get some cash and start ripping it apart.)






It is what it is.
So far, including my parts it has/will have:
6.5 Kenwood speakers with tweeters attached
Full blue/white LED conversion (Afesposi's lights are thee best)
Clear side markers
K&N typhoon blue ram intake
Megan racing strut tower bar
Painted blue valve cover
Clear blinkers
Spec-D replica fogs
Exeddy stage 2 clutch
DC sport ceramic header
Wings West Lip Kit (YES its the real one, not a fake replica ;) )
Unknown brand of slotted rotors.
Somebody give me an ID on the rims?

She needs some body work and some TLC and she should run just fine, my girlfriend named her Snow White. -_-

DEJAVU!!!

My car was basically in the same condition as yours. Not as bad but that's all good. Your bumper should be reusable but the fender might need replacing. Looks like you have a nice little project ahead of you. Your engine definitely looks a lot cleaner then mine. Good luck on your journey.

They're twins! :D
The bumper has a big hole in it, its cheaper to buy a new one from certifit then bring that one to a body shop and have them bondo and paint it.

Compared to a automatic, your 5 speed gives the user by properly modulating the throttle in a given cornering situation a great deal of control of the car. On a 5 speed, due to the direct connect between the engine and the wheels, their is no momentary lag or build up of power time between when you apply a little more throttle and the result of such action which in some conditions can make the difference between making the best act of cornering of your life or ending up in a ditch.When you back off the throttle on a 5 speed the engine braking can introduce trailing throttle overseer which is a win for fwd cars when cornering. Automatics don't really provide engine braking and just act to increase the demands on the braking system and disrupts the suspension balance as you scrub off speed in a corner.Thats why on automatics they have different driving modes. (D,1,2). In conclusion a manual transmission gives the user more control over how the engines torque both + and - effect the handling of the car.

Re: I should prob post a member's ride for this..

Sometime in the next two weeks I'll end up lowering the motor to change the crank pulley and possibly a wire tuck.

Re: I should prob post a member's ride for this..

Thanks guys, it means alot to know that I'll be accepted into the legitimate prelude community, I just have to fix the bushings in the front end, crank pulley, and an alignment first so I can even drive it to work, I have most the parts but yet no time to do it, when I get some more money I'll make the trip to certifit and get the bumper for somewhere around 200 primed and the new fender for 86, plus another 140 in paint and she'll be good to go. After that, I rip apart the head and attempt to find the leaky seal.



BTW! Biglegs, I envy your engine bay. I need to repaint this one, but it's the least of my worries atm, I have to figure out how I'm gunna put gas in it, insure it, find time to fix it, and come up with the money for fenders and paint that I have to do myself.

Tell me about it, I can't wait to fix it, I bought it as a project to build it up. Its quick, gets a lil above 60 in a block and a half just about with the cracked crank pulley.
