    i am thinking of buyin a 94 prelude, but the engine is junk.
    i've been lookin around and new engines are EXPENSIVE.
    I would much rather buy an old honda with 94000 mi on it and a junk body and just take the engine than pay 1500 for a new one.
    i have a friend that will put the engine in for me.
    so, what engines will fit in there???
    or, does anyone know where i can buy an engine (new, used, rebuilt) for around 500-1000 dollars??
    thanks for the help

    What engine is in it right now? The only engine that you're going to possibly be able to pick up for $500 is an F22 (single-cam motor, comes in the base Prelude). Other motors that will fit are the H23, and H22. Also pretty much any JDM F or H motor will fit (F20A/B, F22, which is pretty much the same thing as the US spec H23, and of course the H22). An H23/JDM F22 you might be able to nab for under a grand. An H22 however look to spend a grand probably, more if you want the transmission too.

    Oh and just in case you were wondering, the S2000 motor (F2C or F22C) will not bolt in like the other F/H motors will.
