    A B20A would be a good start.

    To read the FAQs and How-Tos around here first, because that is the wrong engine. Also you should post this in a related topic (which I just moved these posts to) and not in someone else's thread.

    Go to the FAQ section, or click the link in my sig for a parts list. Like everybody else said. The prelude b20 would be very difficult.

    Agreed, turbo. Don't forget finding that engine, and transmission in the USA is near impossible.

    B20A engine for sale:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-1991-JD...item2319947e0a

    F2K5 transmission:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/88-89-HONDA-...item3f13549f00

    They both say its for 3g prelude but i have my doubts.

    They say the pics are from the actual engine, probably the seller assumed it was from a prelude. The next one says that the pics are not from the actual transmission but I don't know why he would say its for a prelude. If anyone is going to buy them, I would request another set of pics from to each seller!

    b20a gearboxes are easy to tell from the rest cause of the shape of them, especially the top part of the bell housing, i haven't seen any other gearbox with a similar shape
