    hey guys, i might get a prelude this week('96) for 500. i want to know what can be done/what parts should i use to get most performance out of the motor? i dont know much about the prelude motors except that you cant run other pistons without resleeving it, so thats out of the question. im looking for around 180whp na. so far the parts i might use are dc sports header, magnaflow muffler, homemade cai w/ aem filter, full engine balance, PnP, and bosch plugs.

    Which engine? F22, H23, or H22?

    It's a common misconception that you can't run new pistons in an H22 without resleeving. In fact, the truth is that you can't go more than a standard overbore (.025") without resleeving. Therefore, you can get some .025-overbore Type-S pistons, and use them in an H22 without resleeving. However, if you want to run aftermarket forged pistons with a larger-than-standard overbore, you do need to resleeve.

    Also, '96 is 4th gen, not 5th gen. No SH's were made until '97.

    i think you should forget about the full engine balance. and buy parts that make power instead of using homemade pieces and DC sports stuff
