    1500 for a riced out prelude that doesn't run and has a b series ... no thanks! but if that's what you want than more power to you.

    but you could probably get aw better shell for less somewhere I'm sure.

    Are you SURE there's a B18 in it, and not an H23?

    I just don't understand why anyone would do that. It's not practical at all. The Prelude is a heavier car then the Civic/Integra. It needs the extra torque of at LEAST an F22 to get it moving at a decent rate. Plus, you'd have to make custom mounts for the engine and transmission, the wiring would be a mess, and what axles would you use? I just don't see any reason to do that when F22s are cheap and fairly easy to find...

    ha eww, if your willing to take the project on bro have at it, dnt let any of us stop you, but you will learn that buying swapped cars (esp if they dnt run) is usually because it was sombodys headache and they want to get rid of it, its ususally cheaper, more fun, and more reliable to build the car yourself and you learn alot in the process and know everything is done right, or your way lol

    dude, you want a straight up answer?

    that thing is a riced out, dirty piece of shit. if you want to blow your money on it, go ahead. i wouldn't spend $2 on it. and if you love it so much, you don't need our opinions. just buy it. then spend all yoru money trying to fix the fucker.
