    My engine in my prelude recently brpke a rod and i need to replace it. I have been on all sorts of websites tryin to get all the facts. I am so confused i dont know what to do! Could someone point in the right direction as in which motor i should use? I would like to have a good solid engine that is not going to blow up on me and also can handle a turbo setup. Also could anyone tell me the best and worse websites for used motors? and should i avoid motors on ebay? In closing HELP!!!!!! lol

    What kind of money do you have?

    you could look for a h23 to replace yours or you could look for a f22 to drop in or you could look into putting a h22 into it...

    I got about 700.00 to spend on a motor. Found a couple h22 vtecs on ebay for around that but i am concerned that they arent that great cause they are cheap. I was going to put in a f22b dohc. But everyone says go with the h22 vtec. MY lude has 220,000 miles on it so i can imagine that is the original engine in it. I also have read on other forums that tiger japanese isnt a good company but everyone has their own opinion. How much boost can stock engine handle?

    Dude with your 700 dollar spending budget, buy another b20, and do a good i/h/e , and blam all your money is gone, with the 700 dollar budget your not going to get a H22 or 23 and the swap mounts and everything to do it

    I still feel weird thinking that the 92-96 gen are that old of cars, they were very very good looking and advanced for that time, very sporty cars

    I think the 97 on up ludes are fricken ugly. The headlights they put on there are awful!!! But you got to love designers that decide to change shit to help it sell. I believe if you get a design that everyone likes run with it dont change it!!!
