    DUDE!! I love 2nd gens!! they are sooooo much fun to drive!!!

    ...im sure by now you have driven it around the corner and go, "WHOA. THIS THING HANDLES?!!!" :D :D :D

    ...the best thing you can do for an ET motor(im assuming) is finding the ever-so-rare, WEBER carbs. That will give you a lot more HP.

    check out preludepower.com for your 2nd gen needs.

    ...as for engine swap...if you can find a JDM B20a1, the Euro or JDM 2nd gen motor, do that! that or the a20 FI motor found in the 2nd gen Accord Lx-i or 2nd gen Prelude Si.

    good luck man! any pics?
    ^_^

    2nd gen Ludes, 1986 NOT Si models run around $500-1000. You got a sweeeet deal bro, low miles too...cherish it, dont beat on it.

    Old School Hondas, especially Preludes are special. y0. :D

    Well, all Preludes, since 1978 come with moonroofs. It's our trademark. y0.

    How can you tell? well, the dual carbed motor isn't Fuel Injected ^_^
    Also, if it was an Si model, you would see the "2.0Si" badge and also the ultra-cool trunk spoiler, or read deck spoiler.
    I believe 86 up either came with the ET II motor, or A18 dual carbs.

    Either way, take it for what it is bro.
    A clean, low mileage classic that is 100% a blast to drive...
