hey guys, its been ages since i was on this board.

i have been told it has 150 bhp.
does any1 know if this is this correct?

i will tell u 1 thing, its fukin fast compared to my accord:D

90-91 2.0 S B20A3 3G - BA 1958 9.1 : 1 104 @
5800 rpm 111 lb/ft @ 4000 rpm

90-91 2.0 Si B20A5 3G - BA 1958 9.0 : 1 135 @
5800 rpm 111 lb/ft @ 4000rpm

90-91 Si B21A1 3G - BA 2056 9.4 : 1 140 @
5800 rpm 135 lb/ft @ 5000 rpm

As you can see, your engine is either the b20a5 or b20a3, but if its faster than your old accord it is probably the 135 hp version.

OHHH Tref, safeel is from england. cars over there are diff than here.
Can you give us engine model?
if it is B20 than you have 145HP.

dude, my friend has one of those!!!....it's boned out but it's damn fast and handles like the shit!!... he's got his for sale for about 3ooo bucks... i was thinking of buying it, but i like having seats... he's got a short ram air intake, stage 3 clutch, short shifter, 2.5 mandrel bent piping, dual exhaust, and i think he's had new pistons put in... but that's all i know, the four wheel steer is so nice, cornering, and even plain lane changing is so fun :). KEEP THAT CAR!!!

where does it say the engine number on the lude?

02-20-2003, 02:07 AM
would i beat a 4door civic vtech???

02-20-2003, 03:20 AM
my engine is the B20A7.
whats the power on that?

02-20-2003, 03:30 AM
i just check on the net and one site says it has 150bhp stock!
if this is true then thats sorted!

02-20-2003, 01:01 PM
i reckon it'd beat a new Civic i-VTEC, or even a stock B16.. if they dont have any mods done to them.

02-21-2003, 01:53 AM
A stock B16 puts out 150bhp doesnt it?
Cos if it does then with these 2 cars it would depend more on the driver! and because i hav 4 wheel steer, i got better handling, so mayb i will race one through small streets so i can whoop his arse!!! :lol

well, i am gettin my induction kit on wednesday, then i am getting some twin spark platinum plugs, and a exhaust (muffler)

Then i shud be sorted!

02-21-2003, 04:22 AM
stock b16a puts out 168hp.
B16B puts out 184hp.

also u gotta take into consideration how fast ur engine and a B16 or B18 would rev up and u also need to factor in ur weight to hp ratio. I still think U with the lude would have a upper hand.

02-23-2003, 09:33 AM
does the b18 come in the type R??

02-25-2003, 04:28 AM
your car is a 3rd generation prelude... i believe the b20a7 is essentially the same as a b20a5, so you should have around 135hp... car weighs a little under 2800 pounds...

i'm not sure on the 2.0L 90-91 models, but the 2.1L models' transmission can use a 92-96 Prelude LSD with no modifications needed...

you guys are smoking crack... the prelude engine is absolute crap. im not flaming, but a prelude has very little performance potential from that engine. your best bet, if you want more power, is to swap for a cr-v engine, the b20z(145bhp), lots of things you can do to that block. 4wheel steer is great yeah, but there is just so little aftermarket support for that particular b series.


the B18A1 Acura Integra GS/RS/LS 1990-1991 Horsepower: 130@6000 RPM Torque: 121@5000RPM Redline 6500 RPM

the B18B1 Acura Integra GS/LS/RS/SE 1994-1995 140HP @ 6300 and 124lbs. @5200. This engine is the NON-Vtec 16 valve 4-cyl. DOHC. Redline=6800

B18C SiR-G Honda Integra SiR-G (JDM) 1995-1997

there are different variations to each type of engine. good luck, and remember, if it gets you from point A to point B, its a good car.

45psi are you saying that you cant do anything to a B20A5 (usdm)? and that B20A7 that safeel has?

Lemme give you two very good examples of a much more lower engine A20. how about Justin and Jhonny-o?

You still think that motor is crap? You dont know the real value of the motor till you start to rip it out and start to modify it.

02-25-2003, 12:45 PM
the prelude motor is crap, in my opinion.

02-26-2003, 03:37 AM
the prelude motor is much better than my old accord motor.
More powerfull, more torque!

Ure saying the lude motor is crap, but check this:
The new lude 2.2vtec is faster than the Integra typeR AND the civic
typeR so there u go, oh yes did i mention the ACCORD TYPE R is slowert than it too.!!!
and if u dont beleive me then check the stats, the lude has more bhp and 0-60 times are faster!

Lude engine rocks!

02-26-2003, 06:17 AM
It should be mentioned that the accord type r is not all that good I would rather have the 240 hp accord V6 with the 6 speed.

02-26-2003, 01:45 PM
i agree with starter, i would rather take the 7th gens over anythin. damn the pull on those things.

yeah, but we are not talking abotu the H22 or what not. We are solely talking about B20A5 here.

02-27-2003, 02:08 AM
Does the B20A5 have the same power as the B20A7??
Cos my engine is the A7

02-27-2003, 11:04 AM
nope B20A4 is not as powerful as your B20A7.
