Hey everyone! New to this forum and wanting to get a Prelude soon. What's the difference between an SH prelude and a regular one? What's SH stand for? I want to get a 97-01. Do those years all have the same engines in them? What are some of the problems that 97-01 preludes can develope from normal wear? Is there anything I should watch out for when looking to buy one? Thanks a ton in advance for the info. :help:

SH is for Super-Handling. Its comes factory with a better suspension setup than the base but its is also heavier. Comes the H22A4 I believe. And they ve the same wear problems every other car will have.

Is there a special letter or number in the vin code that indicates it's an SH model?

It would be great if you could fine me a link to their website. I would like to browse their inventory because I live in Kansas, so pretty far away. Please post it if you ever find it. Thanks.

I am pretty sure it has the H22A4 in it.

The SH has ATTS (Active Torque Transfer System) to minimize torque steer. I have heard that it gives the best control that's you'll experience from a FWD car, but I have never driven one to know if this is true.

My first purchase into the Prelude world was a 2000 SH that I got this spring-what a fantastic vehicle! I would suggest the SH, I believe the Super Handling is a true statement. I have read a few different articles, including one that stated a 5th gen SH as being the best handling vehicle under $30,000! The ATTS is the major difference allowing (into a turn) the outside wheel to get most of the engine's torque and to spin it faster to help alieve the FWD 'plowing' problem in turns.
