    Hey guys, i've been searching everywhere to find answers on this one!! I just bought an 86 prelude B20A engine, and it's done 320,000K's, and i was wondering if i could drop an B20A6 into it.. i've found a trashed prelude with front end exterior damage on ebay for cheap, an the 86 i have is really in need of a new engine or a re-con.. but re-con is so expensive, and the guy selling the 89 damaged has already had his re-conned 50,000k's back.. So what do you reckon?? pls help i'm lost LOL

    Cheers ;)

    i would just get a new prelude, same year. The cars are cheap, it would be more wirth trying to buy a new engine and modifying your engine bay to make it fit. Thats jus tmy oppinion.

    The thing is i have found an 89 prelude with front damage, with a re conditioned engine in it for $400.. So i was thinking maybe i could have the engine from the 89 put into the 86 that i own.. but am not sure if it'd fit lol... maybe i should just run the 86 into the ground, as u said it would cost just as much to change them engine's over, around 1800 i've been quoted, and another 86 is around 1500ish :p

    Just dunno
