    well, if you can find a VTEC version, which from what i hear is very hard to come by since they dont come in cars made here, only in Japan. but if the rest of the car can handle the power boost then ya, go for it.

    this thread is old as hell, and secondly it would be cheaper just to buy a srt4 car

    You're a fucking moron. Why would you try to put an SRT-4 motor in a Prelude? There are plenty of good Honda motors that you can boost on; I see absolutely no point in trying to swap a Dodge motor into it...
