    Well I'm sort of new to the whole Honda import scene but I do know quite a bit about import cars. Well first off im selling my Subaru and I'm pursuing a Honda. The question is what should I get. I'd like to find a 91 Prelude SI and do some basic engine mods to it. I'm wondering if thiers any decent mods for it. Please let me know if thiers anything I could.

    Thx
    Dana

    i say buy a 92-95 hatch, and a b18c (gsr) or B16 then go from there, huge aftermarket support for the B series motors :)

    Yeah I've considered the Civic but I dont think I have enough money to do a swap to it. I like the older Preludes because of thier looks plus my friend is parting out a 93 so i'd take the seats and rims and put it on a 91. Of course that is my opinon.

    dont get a 91 prelude ... get almost anything else ... theres no aftermarket support for those and you wont get shit for performance out of it ... its a bitch to do any kind of swap to it ... its not worth the time or effort ... get a 5th gen hatch or a 2nd - 3rd gen teg.. shit even the prelude after that one is still a better choice... just dont waste your time and money trying to mod a 91 lude its a lost cause

    Ok I didnt know that thier wasn't that many mods for a Prelude. I've considered buying a 88-91 Civic Hatch so that I could make it a sleeper. The majority of 92-95 Civic hatches up here have been beat. The Maine winter causes rust earlier than usual. I've looked for a 93 Civic SI Hatch but I haven't found one yet. What ever I buy it needs to be under 3000 and so far I havent found any decent 92-95 Civic's for that cash. I wouldn't buy the car until June, well after winters over so I could find a decent Civic until then.
