Re: engine swap

this is in the wrong section, and your only option would be the h22 or f20b and if you plan on boosting i would hope your prelude isnt an SH.

also depends on how much your willing to spend.

Re: engine swap

Headers? your car has more than one? Did you get one of those rare v-6 5th gens I hear are roaming around? j/k. Honda's only have a HEADER.
