    Hi guys, Names Michael. I have a 1985 Prelude 2.0 Si. This fall I plan to fix it up into an acceptable ride. Im thinking a b16 Skunk2 intake along with high flow injectors and fuel rail. Along with valve job Stage 2 cam regrind from colt cams. Debating wether or not to send in the crank to paeco to have it lightened and knife edged. I have a Second A20A3 in the garage that is gonna be the block for all this money wasting. Liking the idea of a Si tranny with teggy gears. I am 18 by the way, and my dad is an experianced mechanic, so I am not going this alone. any input is welcome!:eek:

    also shaving the head and block to raise compression ratio. looking for about 10.5:1
    and forged pistons

    no boost in the plans yet, and I am aware that this engine isnt the most desirable to be modding, but that is part of why I like this car some much.

    full coilovers from skunk2.
    and matte black paint with illegal tint lol.

    Um...will a Skunk2 B16 intake mani fit on an A20? If so, that's news to me. Also, I would recommend AGAINST the knife-edging. That seriously cuts down on the longevity of the crank. Unless it's a full-out race engine that's going to be rebuilt frequently, knife-edging is not something I'd want.

    Also, what transmission do you plan on using here? If you're talking about a Civic Si gearbox, then you're very confused...

    1.) A Civic Si transmission will NOT bolt up to your A20 engine.
    2.) The Si trannies generally have shorter gearing then the Integra ones (except for the Type R), so I don't know why you'd want to switch the gears out.

    You need to do a shit ton of reading before you even begin to rip into your car...

    Welcome to the site.

    IMO, sell the 'Lude and get an EF or newer chassis and then swap it.

    Yes, the B16 Intake mani will fit onto the A20, it does require some modification as far as bolt holes though here is a link http://www.3geez.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49453

    and i was only debating the knife edgeing thank you for the info about it though.

    the tranny I am talking about isnt a civic si tranny, it is a same year prelude transmission 5spd manual, I have read on 3geez about taking the gears out of the Prelude Si tranny and putting in the better ratio of the integra gears. I dont know everything about its yet though.
    I will try to find the write up on it though

    :wave: Welcome to the site.


    A B16 tranny and an ITR tranny have the same gear ratios.

    I'm aware of that. Did you not see the "except for the Type R" caveat?

    nah man, thanks for putting 'em up for me, i couldnt figure out how to do it :)

    in the videos above, the car is an automatic, but I have found I can control the shift points pretty well by keeping it in D2 until I want third and so on, I know it isnt very good for the tranny, but I have two of them, so I am not too worried about it.

    I have a set of those rims in good condition. Had them on my hatch. I think they looked pretty decent on there...

    I seen some at an all Honda junk yard, me and my friend thought they were the 4x114 from the Accords. If they are 4x100 I think Ill be making a trip back to the place, I love old-school mesh wheels.:D
