Question about 1992 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

Runs fine on at least 1/2 a tank of gas

I have a 1992 Prelude, 1994 h22a vtec swap, that seems to need at least 1/2 a tank of fuel to run just fine. As the tank gets lower and lower, the car will increasingly and continuously lose power and then catch and accelerate again, or sometimes die and you have to restart it. Fuel pump is brand new. I'm thinking fuel filter, main relay, fuel pressure regulator, igniter? Is the fuel pump float involved? This is just weird. Any ideas?

Sounds like the pickup tube may have fell off or not on properly or loose

What Performance Engine modifications can i get done to it


The possibilities are limitless, I have done many many swaps. My favorite is the H22A, thats a 1992-1996 Prelude into this vehicle. But you can pick almost any fast 4-cylinder front wheel drive honda, the integra GSR is pretty awesome, uses a B16 Vtec engine. The only thing you need is money. :)

Does a h22 motor just drop in a 91 accord , is there anything i should know


You will need to know if is a h22a or h22a4. The h22a has the kind of fuel injectors that you'll need with your current set up. Also, you'll need the ECU. If you are putting a 95 or newer h22a in the car then you'll need a P13ecu to run the Vtec. You'll also need to run power to the vtec solenoid on the h22. If you're using a 96 or new Prelude engine it will be OBD2, your current wiring is OBD1. Your best bet is to get a 92 thru 95 H22a only.

Possible speed sensor. I know the speed sensors are a problem with hondas. A new speed sensor is about $200 and can be easily replaced. It bolts to the top of the transmission on the firewall side. Do NOT buy an e-bay one. They are only about $30 but are junk

Anything that is OBD 1 or newer if you want it to be legal, here are the most common options and the basic requirements. 1. B16A2/3: Completely bolt-in Swap, VTEC needs to be wired, SIR II, Hasport shift linkage. Del Sol VTEC for the del sol 2. B18B: Completely bolt-in swap, SIR II, Hasport shift linkage. Del Sol VTEC for the del sol 3. B17A: Completely bolt-in swap, cable-hydro transmission kit(not recommended) or hydraulic b-series transmission, VTEC needs to be wired. 4. B18C1: Completely bolt-in swap, VTEC needs to be wired. 5. B18C5: Completely bolt-in swap, OBD conversion, VTEC needs to be wired. 6. B16B: Completely bolt-in swap, OBD conversion, VTEC needs to be wired. 7. H22A: Mount kit required, Hasport shift linkage, VTEC needs to be wired. 8. B16A: Not recommended! Too much work, more costly compared to B16A2/3's. 9. D16Z6: Completely bolt in, VTEC needs to be wired. 10. D16Y8: Completely bolt in, VTEC needs to be wired.
