I agree.

Thats the best starting point and the cost is about right, depending on which brands you choose.

Should bring decent gains.

Depends again on what brand you go with.

Its possible to get I/H/E installed for around $1K.

But it goes up from there.

Holy sh*t, thats a damn good deal, $8900 for a 93 VTEC w/ only 66k miles? Damn good! Check the VIN number to see if its been in a wreck. The 93's are supposed to be the fastest Prelude year, if I'm not mistaken.

93-95 were the fastest because of OBDI.

As for the 93 being the out and out fastest, I have heard that it was actually lighter, but the wheels were heavier. I have noticed that the test all seem to be about the same for 93-95's though.

Mine ran high 14's stock.

Most books said 15.1 though.

"On Board Diagnostic" emissions control ."II" is for the newest revamped version that came out in Preludes, and most cars, in 96.

The system uses multiple sensors to monitor several areas of the engine, fuel system, exhaust, ignition, to maintain pollution control. The OBDI was less restritive allowing for better gains with modifications to the above mentioned areas. OBDII is much more restrictive causing the ECU to override a lot of the initial gains in the name of lower emissions output when you change or "modify" a certain area, such as the intake. The system is trying to maintain a certain level of emissions output.

I hope this helps.
