yea the h22 was pretty impressive for the year 1997 up till about 2001. back when we could rape v6's like they were 4's and 4s like they weren't moving.. but every year technology and innovation prevail. your car isn't new anymore. remember its 8 years old now.. 8 years of innovation and technology goes a LONG way. cars that are worth your time are cars of similar year... keep to the late 90s cars. or do some mods. turbo that bish. oh and its VTEC.. not v-tec..

Our cars were not meant to go fast and still be practical. They are meant to look nice, not break, and reel in ass. Mine handles pretty well too, compared to my DSM.

Also, our cars engines are all destined for some lonely EG shell in someones backyard. lol, Those things rip.

What 4 banger with FWD under $30K is really THAT fast, stock? The fact that it is FWD makes it not worth while, IMO, to be a serious threat to beating faster cars. Yes, there's 8 second Civics, but what was the Civic designed for? Economy. The Prelude is an economy car with sports car characteristics. If you want a car worth while, buy a Z06. If you can afford the gas (like the Prelude) I promise, you won't be disappointed.

They are indeed street cars, they get me from point A to B and look good doing it- they are reliable and fun to drive. Preludes are awesome cars, but if you are looking for performance or some kind of street terror this is not the way to go...

Cheap speed options.

Fox Body, Camaro/Firebird/Vette, DSMs. These are all cars you can get into the 12s for under 1000 dollars.

1st off do you have an auto or a 5spd? If it's an auto then it would be expected. if it's a 5spd then you'd have a fighting chance. Like mentioned, preludes aren't meant to be drag cars, they're heavy as fack. In the twisties they're a lot better. If you really want to get a fast 5th gen turbo it.

Yes, the autos suck. I can't wait to rip mine out. :P

The Prelude, as far as I can see is one weird vehicle. It sits right in the middle of the sports and luxury categories. The fifth gen Lude has a terrific chassis and engine package, yet the powers that be chose to stick the biggest muffler found this side of an 18-wheeler to shut it up and weigh it down with practically every luxury gadget available at the time of release.

A Prelude is a sporty car, not really a sports car.

If you wanna rape everything in a straight line, I spose you could buy a nissan S14 for similar dollars, but would sacrifice the fact that you drive a nice car.

Drag racing is fun but flying through a canyon is funner (if thats a word). I was kinda disappointed about hearing about how slow everybody's prelude is but when I killed my friends trans am or firebird whatever from a 40 mph roll it made me smile =)
