Prelude Driving rating

before and after p/s delete

I have only removed the belt so far, but am going to loop the lines, and fully remove all components tomm, as well as finishing deleting my a/c lines and compressor.

but after removing the belt, it is amazing. I feel so much more in control of the car, turns are so much more controlled and fun. i took the same turns i take everyday tonight on a test drive, and where i usually let off the throttle, i found myself staying on it all the way through the turn, the wheel wants to stay in position more than trying to find its way straight i feel. and i feel like i got more of a low end HP, and torque gains. acceleration feels smoother and steadier. even though i know gains on paper might be considered as minimum, but this has made me fall back into love with my prelude.
i had fallen out of love with it due to all the problems ive been having recently, but this reminded me just how much of a beast, and fun car it is to drive. i cant wait to get under her tomm to remove all these useless parts, and then take another test drive.

ill post again tomm when i see how it is with looped lines. and ill post some pics too.

Before belt removal: 6/10
after belt removal: 9/10
looped lines:

Re: Prelude Driving rating

It was a bitch to do the p/s delete. But I got it done. And it was well worth it. The power gain is easily determinable in the lower end rpms. It definitely provides a smoother acceleration IMO because the crank pulley is freed up more.

But yea I have to do some more rerouting of hoses this weekend to make the cover fit, so I'll take pics. Engine bay is definitely cleaner though without all the p/s and a/c lines going around all crazy.

Re: Prelude Driving rating

You inspired me to take the first step, I took the belt off and went for a drive today. You're totally right that it just feels completely different, I thought it would just make the wheel harder to turn but it's so much more than that. There's actually resistance now the more the wheel is turned and I imagine it would be easier to tell when it's about to lose grip. You get the feedback of every single bump in the road. I didn't feel as though it wanted to track at all and the car was quite easy to keep going in a straight line. The only problem is how damn heavy the steering is in corners now, I used to drive everywhere with only one hand on the wheel but now I need both to negotiate the average suburban corner. I certainly wouldn't want to do this on a DD, I was pooped after 20 minutes. It could just be me being a weakling though. Did you find it got much easier to turn with the looped lines?

Re: Prelude Driving rating

sorry for the late response. I did find it easier with looped lines, but i am able to always make the turn one handed, unless in a parking lot. maybe you need to press the gas when your cornering more, it makes turning easier. idk if you drive auto or manual, but i drive manual, so i drive one hand on steering wheel and one on shifter. but i also workout too.... just invest in a curl bar and youll be good lol

btw, i DD my lude with looped lines and love it.
