Question about 1990 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

Replacing engine of 91 3rd Gen prelude with a 88 3rd Gen prelude

I just bought a 91 Prelude with very high kms, I have a 88 Prelude with just 58,000kms but has panel damage. I want to put the low kms 88 engine into the 91 Prelude. Does the 91 Prelude have a different fuel injection system I should keep? It feels like the 91 has slightly more power than the 88 model. Is it easy to switch the fuel injection system?

Hi can you please tell me how much a new or used motor would be to puchase and then the cost of getting it fitted for a honda prelude 88-89 model? and where do I get one. I live in brisbane south


You need the Honda B20A engine, it was used on their vehicles from 88-91 Preludes. You can get them on ebay several other places online. You can get them shipped to you in Australia. Good luck to you

You need to check the tcm for codes too. The s3 light is like the check engine light for the tcm. The VSS code might be your problem.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

Can you fit 91 prelude sunroof on a 93 prelude regards trevor


I am having the same problem; I cannot find a 93 Prelude sunroof. But the answer is no you can't use any other year of sunroof on ours. Just about everything else but the roof will fit. Hope this helped.
