Looking to buy a crashed Honda Accord Type-R with the H22a7 engine (I think you guys know it as the Euro-R?), I want the PDE head, intake mani, and the U2Q7 LSD gearbox.






This is my 2nd Prelude, I bought my black lude with the H22a5 in 2008 and ran it for a year. I never intended to replace it but in 2009 I saw a newer, faster, lower mile’d, higher spec’d one for sale at a very good price and jumped at it.

The day I got her

It was my first time at a rolling road, it was good fun :D













Just finished my JDM fog install

Re: :::Merlin::: 2000 VTi BB8 4WS

Very nice looking Lude man love it! This is a question to everyone i guess including you Merlin. Does anyone that drives a LHD find it strange that the shift gate and e-brake are the same on the RHD? I know it would be weird for me just switching all the driving sides, but you gota do the same shift pattern with your opposite hand?! Wow i dont know how many times i would screw up shifting!

Very nice Merlin! You've shown the car a lot of love, and the result is incredible. Can't wait to see what you do next.

Can't speak or the UK peoples, but down here the answer is nope...unless you're interested in classic US muscle, old Corvettes and Cougers for example.

The UK is one area where there are both LHD and RHD cars so it might be a problem. However for most it never worries them because just like you have grown up always shifting with your right hand we've grown up always shifting with the left. What I find strange is when they use the same mouldings, like 5g's the hand brake lever is always on the right side of the console - meaning LHD drivers need to reach over to pull the lever.

Re: :::Merlin::: 2000 VTi BB8 4WS

The e brake things is still screwey, how it's so close to you guys when you drive. I like it further away. But what gets me is your shift pattern is the same as ours, your 1st gear is the furthest away from you. I know if you grow up driving that's it's nothing unusual, but if I tried to drive one after 15+ years of LHD!

Re: :::Merlin::: 2000 VTi BB8 4WS

Thanks for the nice comments. Yeah I know theres alot of pics A years worth of updates in one go . I know its not putting down the kind of power thats common with US ludes, but 197bhp in a 10 y/o car is enought to see off most new cars.

Comfy but firm. As you know UK roads are pretty poor and you need a bit of give. My last lude had standard shocks and lowering springs but the ride was quite harsh. The Teins are nice. I cant really drop it any further through needing my arches rolled, and so many speed bumps near where I live.

Its the stock rear lip with the rears ontop, they bodyshop guy used plastic rivets to hold them in place.

There are a few things I have noticed on USDM ludes that I like, black radio surround instead of wood grain. Do you guys have "Acoustic feedback" logos on your speaker grilles? Or is that just JDM? I wished we got ATTS on UK cars, we didnt even have the option of LSD . As for the whole LHD thing, the rest of Europe is LHD so its not that foreign to us.

I know it would be weird for me just switching all the driving sides, but you gota do the same shift pattern with your opposite hand?! Wow i dont know how many times i would screw up shifting!
I have driven a fair amount in Europe and in the US when I visited, I dont find it confusing. Infact if the shift gate was opposite it would be very difficult and I would be putting it in the wrong gear.

He's a Schnauzer. The style in the US is to cut their ears into points Thats illegal in the UK.
