:::Leavemdroolin's::: 2000 SH J-Swap

Mods:

Exterior -Read the thread

Misc. -Read the thread



I have always been an avid Honda lubber. When I bought my first car it was a 91 four door Civic. Shortly after that I got myself a 91 Prelude. My buddy had his all white 3rd gen and first took me for a ride in it on our way home from school one day and I was in Prelude love ever since. I didn't have my 91 for very long though cuz somebody crashed into it while it was parked on the street and basically totaled it. After that I went on to a few Integra's but my eye was always on Prelude's.

Anyways I bought this car, 2000SH from the original owner. He bought it off the showroom floor and showed it tender love the whole time he had it. The only mods he did were an AEM cold air and Koni's SP3's with NueSpeeds and some Enkei 18" wheels. This car is minty! Took time to find the one I wanted but it paid off.

Bare with me on the pictures guys I didn't feel like re-sizing them all right now.

My very first picture of the car before I took her home.







As you can see the interior is spotless. I don't have a single burn or tear not even a worn out ass cheek spot anywhere on the seats. He really took good care of this car.








This is how she currently sits


I have some big plans that are just now coming to fruition. I'm dumping the "H" and getting a....



The work is going to start towards the end of this month. I have already purchased a full TL Type-S motor and manual trans and have plenty of help from someone who has already done this. I was going to keep this to myself but I believe there are only 2 other Preludes with J's in them currently and any help I can offer the community through my build might help push someone else towards getting a J.

The whole SH front end is history and in comes a new base front end. Then I am having Koni rebuild, shorten and revalve for some GC's. I'm not sure if I am going to go this route for sure yet though, I am still undecided on coilovers. I'm also gonna have the front end shaved and repainted and everything tucked. The motor will also be cleaned up and the bottom end is getting rebuilt for boost!

As the progress continues I will post more pictures and updates.

Parts are on the way..


Forgot to mention my Greddy Exhaust. Changed out the stock exhaust for a full Greddy exhaust.


Just came in today...




Just a test fitment





I just flew to Oklahoma to pick up a little something..







I drove the car all the way back to California in 20 hours straight through. This car is hardly streetable to say the least. Clutch is something else, really just made for track purposes. Really lucked out on my drive to be honest. I left on Saturday the 15th at about 1PM. Tornados were touching down about the same time in Oklahoma and were passing through just North of my path home. Then on my way through Flagstaff Arizona it was snowing hard and to be honest I was more then a bit nervous especially with that clutch cruising through the snowy mountains. I just tucked the car behind a big rig and followed him to lower elevations with no snow.

The motor is something else. It has so much torque that it just spins the tires through the first 4 gears if you put your foot in it. The suspension leaves a lot to be desired too and once I get that taken care of will provide a much better way to transfer the power to the ground. 0-100MPH happens so before you even know it and I pretty much cruised the car home at about 95-100. On the way I pulled up next to a Mustang and revved on him. He raised his hands and it was a go on green. Really wasn't fair!

To be honest I can't wait to get this thing situated with the correct suspension. It will be a night and day difference. But first things first. The black Prelude is going to the shop to be torn down completely. Once everything is out the shell will be junked and misc. parts will be sold. White Prelude is also going to the shop to have the engine bay stripped so it can be mocked up with the J35 for a new set of custom mounts. After the mounts are done the bay will be completely redone, shaved and repainted.

That is all for now more to come later..

Re: :::Leavemdroolin's::: J-Series into my SH

Very Jealous! I just sold my TL Type-S J32A2 to fund my Prelude project. Motor was barely broken in. I was going to swap it into my hatch but could never find a decently priced transmission

Best of luck though and subscribed

Re: :::Leavemdroolin's::: J-Series into my SH

This is definitely a future possibility for me. Wasn't sure I was gonna go that route with my prelude, I was thinking down the line of doing it with an RSX but this has inspired me. keep us posted with pics, this is definitely a subscibed thread

To be honest with you VTEC with an H22 isn't as good as with a B18C(5) and you don't even notice it on the J35A8. When I had my Integra VTEC was the **** and cracked off hard, H22 is ok but not my cup of tea to be honest and is why it's off to the grave yard.

The "J" is more about pure torque and power through out the whole gear. The car pulls when it gets traction. The power difference between this and the H is not even comparable.

There are a lot of hurdles that I will need to overcome to achieve what I want from this build but I have some people in my corner who have been around building Hondas for many years.


I also want to say that this isn't about the H22 not being a good motor or about my motor is bigger then yours. The H22 served it's purpose for me and now it's just time to move on to something that can give me more of what I'm looking for. Kind of to each his own type deal.
Thanks everyone for the interest

Re: :::Leavemdroolin's::: J-Series into my SH

So are you parting out the black one and dropping the j into the white one?

No matter what you do, I will definitely be watching this build. I love seeing j swapped ludes.

wait... i just read what your planing to do. Why are you going to junk it?!?! why not just mod the black one? the work Rich put into that car it dosn't make sense to tare it down. If you where going to do that why didn't you just buy a J series and put it in your white one?

No hate here, just trying to be a voice of reason. If you can keep both cars why not? The SH won't be any easier to control if Daniel goes part for part, and :knock on wood: if something happened to the SH after all that hard work, I wouldn't know what to do. Being down 2 cars, definitely sucks.

By all means do what you want and enjoy every moment you can!

you bought an already J-swapped 5th gen, gonna strip it and part it out, to build another J-swapped 5G?!!?

Please let me explain. It's pretty simple really. My SH is immaculate, really. The black car is a hooptie, no really. The black base was made for one reason and that is to race. The body is badly damaged with dents all over the place, hood is done, suspension is non existent, the sun roof is welded shut (I think, but it is permanently shut regardless) and what's left that is good will be salvaged and given good homes I promise. Just take my word for it though when I say the black car is trash. Rich would even say something along the same lines. Again this car was intended for one purpose and that was the track. I will improve upon that by leaps and bounds.

Rich, the previous owner basically pioneered putting a "J" into the Prelude. Everyone said it couldn't be done mainly because of DBW but with a little help from RPM Systems and lots of hard work Rich prevailed against what everyone said he couldn't do. To me his car was a prototype. He gave me a map now I'm going to follow it and dig up the real treasure. Rich definitely deserves a lions share of the credit for this whole deal. He has been very helpful and is always willing to spend a few minutes (or hours-sorry Rich) to help me out.

Basically I purchased the car because it had a J35A8 with a 6 speed lsd transmission. He also upgraded the clutch to a twin disk. RPM Systems provided the harness and that is the one and only reason I bought his car. His work will be used to advance even further. The white Prelude is nothing short of amazing. It handles like it did from day one with everything feeling oh so tight. The cosmetics are a 9 out of 10 and the interior is a 10-10. Add a "J" to the mix and you've got yourself a bad mutha phucker!

Hope this helps you understand why I'm doing what I'm doing.

Cheers

Do you know how hard it is to find a "J" with a 6 speed lsd tranny? Have you ever looked? Rich knows full well what I intend to do and he is on board completely. Again without Rich this wouldn't even be happening, so I applaud his efforts. This is going to be part of the evolution of what he started.

As far as making sense, if you drove the car and seen the car up close then you would know that the car is in bad shape. It isn't salvageable. Once the parts are taken from it the frame and shell aren't really worth anything. The whole front end is...well destroyed. The bumpers are really nothing but the outer plastic.

I might take some pictures of the damage so you guys can see first hand.
