I have a base model 94 prelude. Im just currious the gains I would get from addons like for say exaust and intake, etc. I know that alot of you wouldnt want to do anything to that engine but I might be stuck with it, I love me lude too much! So anyways anyone have a idea?

probably....the way he said it "I know that alot of you wouldnt want to do anything to that engine but I might be stuck with it" makes me think it's non-vtec
lets narrow that non-vtec part down to an F22 ;)

You are not going to gain very much, but thats the way it is with all preludes regardless of year. With intake and exhaust you might gain 7whp, but probably not even that.

why so low? I always hear civic guys saying they got 7 from the intake, 10 from exaust, etc. Obvously I have a different car but that low for both? btw it is a "s" model

did the civic guys dyno their cars or are they reading off the maximum possible hp gain claims given by the manufacturers?

if i may, an excerpt from www.riceboypage.com


What do you mean cutting your springs is bad for your car? It lowers the center of gravity and makes it handle better!! My Eclipse RS (140 stock horsepower) has 170 horsepower now because I added intake (10hp), exhaust (5hp), header (10hp) and spark plug wires (5hp)... 10+5+10+5=30 horsepower!!

does this answer anything??

The Preludes engine is already designed very well and replacing certain parts with parts that arent really that much better wont get you too much.

I rather have a 4thgen even though you might not get as much of a gain in certain parts your car is alot lighter making it better for, for modding.

Most people, regardless of what they drive, tend to overestimate what their bolt-ons really get them in tems of dyno-proven gains. You can't trust what is said in the magazine, as much of that is hype.
