Should i build a 95 prelude?

well im debating on what i need to do to this thing, its a 95 prelude 5-speed with a b23 non vtech and motor that is apart. i have everything to build the motor and everything i have is new, pistons and all but all stock bore. i am wanting to put a vtech head on it and turbo it over time. i just wanna know if this car would be fast with stock bore and stock motor minus head and turbo over time. just post up and let me know so i have a idea on what to do to it. i am going to look for external mods like computers and stuff and suspension upgrades. just need some help.

Re: Should i build a 95 prelude?

you really have to decide NA or turbo now because those setups use different pistons...

I'm planning on getting a turbo setup but it won't be at the min, it will be when I can get the money.

Re: Should i build a 95 prelude?

Man, this just can't end well.

You don't need a turbo. You have 5.8gHz of fury man. Lay down some serious power.

P.S. If you can't spell or define VTEC, you don't need to be building engines.

P.S.S. Good luck boosting a high compression engine at your level.

What he said ^^^

Seriously listen to Type-T decide if u want to go turbo or n/a now. Decide how much hp u are looking for. For n/a max is about 250 hp and is about as expensive as boosting it.

If u Frank it (h22 head, h23 block) u will like it. Has good low end and with the h22 good high end and vtec

I never really understood the frankenstein motors....

I get that you get the low end of the h23, and the VTEC part of the h22 head.... but isn't the block what prevents the engine from reving high? So essentially you'd still rev the same, just faster because of the vtec....?

I think I just answered my own question lol.

h23 and h22 redlines are different but not a huge difference. as for vtec it only engages once you hit the rpms it is set to engage so its not on all the time. putting that h23 block and h22 head is like getting an h23a


if you want to go boost get the h22 head and an f23 block since its iron and u wont need to resleeve the block if u want decent numbers. i think its one of the better swaps to do if you want a decent turbo lude



you could also get an f20b and boost that since it has iron block aswell and vtec


it all really depends how deep your wallet can reach lol

Re: Should i build a 95 prelude?

I know it's a vtec not vtech but I guess this iPhone likes to add a H onto it. Thanks for being a smartazz and thanks for the another people's input.
Anyway I wanna boost it and yeah imma use the h23 block with the h22 vtec head On it. I'm just wondering how a stock motor that is a fresh rebuild will do with the turbo. Im wanting to run a t2 single turbo.
