Tentacle Pope's '92 Si VTEC

Hey guys, just got this car a few weeks ago. There are some pretty facepalm things about it that have been done to the car throughout the years, and I hope to get rid of them all lol. As soon as it warms up around here I'll be putting a bunch of time into it. Any tips or opinions are appreciated. I just noticed I missed the smallprint on the title format rules, sorry sorry sorry.





The emblems had been taken off, so I replaced them with these.









Engine:
H22A DOHC VTEC Swap (118,000 mi give or take, 3,000mi or so into swap)
K&M Cold Air Intake
Custom Exhaust (In bad shape)
Headers (Unknown Brand)

Interior:
Short Shifter
Ball Type Shift Knob
Black Leather w/ Blue Stitching Shift Boot

Exterior:
Removed Terminator Spoiler (Couldn't see through the back windshield, and it dented the s**t out of the trunk)
Custom Boba Fette Emblem
VTEC Emblem
17" Konig Rims

Suspension:
KYB Gas Struts
Craptastic Ebay Special (I'm Guessing) Coilover Springs (Makes the car sit about 3/4-1in higher on 1 side than the other)

ICE:
JVC Head Unit
Alpine 6 1/2" Component Speakers (Front)
Memphis Audio 6 1/2" Speakers (Rear)
10" JL W3 Subwoofer
400 Watt Amp


Future Mods:
New Paint Job
Stock Coilover's (I live in the middle of nowhere, terrible roads)
New Catback Exhaust
Rust and Dent Removal
Illuminated Prelude Emblem (Thank you Exerstine for the awesome guide)

welcome...interested to see what u do with it...

i got the same rims.

and just to let you know your car is just a Si model with a VTEC swap.
Your car would of had a non VTEC H23 originally

in the US 1993 was the first year you could get a real Prelude Si VTEC ,the BB1, which came with the 190hp H22.

Nice looking start. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

What part of Ohio do you live in? I'm in Delaware, and I know there's a few Columbus guys around.

Yeah I know it's got the swap in it, but it's still a vtec. I live in Cardington actually, so pretty close to you. Can't wait until we get some warm weather around here!

He understands that it has the vtec engine now but it is not a vtec model because they didn't make them in 92.
