    Ok this is going to sound somewhat dumb so here it goes:

    I am looking to buy a 4TH gen Prelude with the H22A and I was wondering if the 5TH gen front end will fit. I looked at the dimensions and they are very close. Any help would be appreciated.

    92-96 front end preludes (4th gen) looks way better then the 5th gen preludes, if anything I would convert the 5th gen back lights to the 4th gen, now that would be sick!

    What's wrong with the fifth-gen rear end? In my opinion it's very clean looking...nice and simple, half-red/half-clear tails, etc.

    Anyhoo, I guess I just don't really see the point of conversions like this. Think about it...you're probably gonna spend at least a couple grand, if not more, on doing a conversion like this (unless you can do paint and body work yourself).

    For that kind of money, you might as well just spend it upfront and buy a 5th-gen Prelude to start with. Then you'll have a newer car with the front end that you want.

    Just my opinion...take it or leave it...

    Nothing wrong with the 5th gen rear end, I said I would swap the 5th gen rear on a 4th gen cause the 5th rear end are clean looking.

    Yeah, just tryna be unique ya know. I love all Preludes but I think a 5TH gen front end would look sick on a 4TH gen. Ya know those headlights with the triangular taillights. Thanks for the opinions though. :) :D

    Today was a good day, just like the Ice Cube song. I just bought a 95 Prelude VTEC. Bone stock, perfect project car. Any questions on it just ask.
