Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Jed(.a.k.a. 87preludekid) I signed up for this forum a couple of days ago and thought I would introduce myself.

I own two cars first of all I have a 1987 Honda Prelude SI and a 1986 Volkswagon Jetta 2-door. We got the Jetta about 2 weeks ago and it has a problem with the radiator so its sitting in our drive way, and previous owner of the Prelude needed to take out his after market parts so we are receiving the Prelude tomorrow but any way I live in Salt Lake City, Utah and am 14 years old. I guess thats it, so reply to this post if you have any questions.

thanxxxxx, 87preludekid

hey welcome to HF preludes are a good way to go nice car.. i prefer the 88s tho. but some advice get an alarm and get the locks and igniton changed the day u get it. i had an 88 prelude had it stolen and totalled. went and saw it at a junk yard the next day saw another one in there just like mine went over unlocked the door and would have started it with the key to my prelude but the motor was all messed up. there is only acouple diff keys for the older preludes so unless u want it stolen get it changed ASAP. o and get rid of the jetta. had one of them one the worst car i have ever owned!! had a new prob with it every other day.. but good luck with ur prelude!!

jetta better than prelude?? no way! my old 88 prelude kicked butt stock. i would race cars all the time and win with out even trying that hard. hell i even raced my old boss who had a 91 camaro it was V6 but still i left it in the dust! and my jetta well 1 had a problem every other day like lots of jettas out there and 2 it was pretty slow.. idk im not the biggest fan of VW. honda all the way!

Jed again, thanx for the welcoming party and i already said f**k the Jetta im just going to race it in dirt devil or what ever they call it in utah cause they call it dirt devil in wisconsin.

i got 7 questions for you guys excuse me if the questions are every day people should know keep in mind im only 14

1. is it worth spending $2,045 for a h22a engine from jdmaddiction.com? :help:

2. i found the same thing for $1,800 at jdmsource.ca :help:

3. how much of a horse power gain will i get with a h22a? :help:

4. what do i need to do to my car to install a vtec engine? :help:

5. will a later year engine fit in my 1987 prelude? :help:

6. are the engines on those sites brand new? :help:

7. what parts does the engine include :help:

 

if you guys could answer these questions ive asked it would be greatly appreciated

cool im glad ur saying eff the jetta!! and actually there is someone on here selling a h22a with tranny for like 700 or 800 or something like that 60k miles and looks great!! go to the classfied adds on here and look i think it was posted acouple days ago i was looking into getting it for my del sol but costed to much for the swap so i wasnt able to get it. and the h22s get a stock of about 200hp so that is a pretty big gain for ur car. i believe ur getting about 100 or so. i dont rember if its the same as the 88 but i know my old 88 2.0 SI was getting 125hp and what u mean by later year engine?? like older than 87?? if thats what u mean it would be a waste of money only go newer.. and on those sites no the motors are not new most likely they have about 60k miles. most the time its the complete motor but u just got to look into the sites and see what they say about thier motors.

so u asking if a 95 prelude motor will fit?? ya it should but you will need to go get new motor mounts and it prob wont just be an easy drop in. you will have to call a shop thats special is motor swaps and ask. i wouldnt take it to any shop tho. make sure they really know what they are doin..

ya he might know about engine swaping but do you know of any shops that do just that?? here we have a shop called garage 808 that pretty much does nothing but motor swaps and turbos and stuff like that. so i would find a shop like that and call and ask. but im pretty sure u can i was goin to get an H22 in my 93 del sol and that has a smaller engine bay and a smaller car all around and they have done acouple of them so most likly it will work but it may not be cheap for me just the swap was goin to be like 1500 to 2000 and i still had to buy the motor mounts and those were goin to be about 650 and i had to get lots more stuff like axles and stuff.. so if ur serious about the swap expect to pay a bit.
