:::BowtieHonda::: 1997 Prelude Base

Picked this up from a friend for a nice low sum of money. My first Honda. Well, Honda car, anyways...Needs a fresh H22A but shes 110% functional otherwise :) I can't wait. Hauled it home today with the Silverado.












Engine:
H22A4
60lbs of compression in each hole
Power steering pump is MIA
Ghetto fabulous blue electric fan

Interior:
Thankfully, all stock. And in great shape!

Exterior:
Primer grey, primer black, factory red, factory black.

Suspension:
Stock

ICE:
Kicker Components
Sony CD player

Misc:
Greddy muffler

________

Engine is worn smooth out. Aside from finder a lower mileage H22 I'm going to simply return it back to being a reliable, semi good looking, comfy daily driver to keep the miles (and the gas) out of my 2005 Silverado. Getting started on the nuts and bolts of it tomorrow evening.

Must be. My friend bought the car from Nolen Noel in Port Barre, LA.

Edit: My best friend bought it from NJNoels dad. I searched his name on here...and well, it looks like she'll be getting a fresh shot of life so long as its with us.

Anywho. Here is where we stand!

Last weekend the old H22A came out:







And during the week after work I prepped the F22B DOHC to go in:



Yesterday we dropped it in and hooked up most of the stuff:



Still need an adapter for the distributor before we can see if it will even run at all with the H22 PCM. In perfect world it would run OK enough to pass inspection and then I could run a well tuned OBD1 swap the other 364 days a year.

I also made a parts list, gonna hit up RockAuto today.

Rad fan, outer tie rod ends, rack and pinion bellows, left CV shaft, left upper control arm, slave cylinder, front motor mount, and stuff like that. It's about $235 worth of stuff. Way more buying local.

IDK what I'm going to do for paint yet. The front right corner was messed up in a wreck so its hard getting stuff to fit back right. I was seriously considering skipping a lot of expense and just painted it satin red, lol. It'll atleast be a solid color and drive around reliable which is the main goal anyways.
