    is that out of a 1 or 2 gen prelude?
    If is it you wil need to fabricate plenty to put it in and deal with the differences in OBD.
    It will be a great deal of work and benefit to cost ratio will not be positive.

    That motor belonged in a junkyard...scratch that. The design of that motor should have been in the garbage long before development.

    I wouldn't waste my time or money. Hell, I wouldn't even waste your money.

    If I worked at a shop, I would take all the money you planned on putting into it and put a GSR in it and keep the extra so I can convert my a4 to s4 status.

    :mrgreen:, sorry, in all seriousness it's a waste.
