    I have a 1991 Honda Prelude Si 2.0 and have installed reactive intake, custom cat-back exhaust, hi-flow cat convert., custom spark plugs, a hedman header, programmable fuel injection, aem adjustable cam gears, and more... I love this car to death and i want to make it faster but i've done all i can do. I have talked to people in my car club and they have told me the only way to make it faster is to get turbo's and/or nos or just get an engine swap. could anyone give me some advice on what i should swap in?

    See the above post.

    Basically, the only swap kit made is for an h22 by Place Racing. That engine weighs 180lbs more than the b20/21 putting the front/ rear weight distribution at around 70/30. Thats fine for a drag car but not for a street car. I believe Whiteline (or something like that) is in the works on a suspension kit specifically for that swap.

    If it were me, I'd go with a b16 or 18. But that requires lots of changes and has no aftermarket support. If your comfortable with the fabrication and LOTS of time to measure clearences, go for it.
