Thats cool and all, but I would of just bought a FD with a blown motor and swapped and LS1 into that. The way the interior looks right now there is no way in the world you can drive that car anywhere except the track.

I always thought the Preludes looked more like RWD Sports cars, kind of a 240sx equivalent. Honda should have marketed it and built it like that.....

I'm not sure what to say exactly. On one hand I'm really impressed with this guys skill and tenacity for doing something that has never been done, and in his garage no less. On the other hand, why in the hell would you want to do this particular swap? I can think of many other swaps that would be more interesting, and would therefore say that this guy is sort of wasting his time, money, and energy just to see if he can do it.

Still, it's his car, his time, his money...so applause is in order! :bigthumb:

crazy swap - You think he would have started with a lighter base- but a interesting swap none the less - for his first time doing a swap like this, he is doing quite well and going very fast. My first swap like this took a life time. After you learn from your mistakes though you can start doing them with a better mental picture.

And they already make a V8 Prelude




:lol:

^Wow, that's freaky.

I hade a 98 Prelude that I miss very much. It was a really nice car. THAT would have been a cool RWD swap. I'm impressed with this guys work.

Now that there is a transverse LS1 (LS4) people can do FWD V8 swaps and mid/rear engine swaps.

With swaps like these it's not really the end that matters it's the journey. Maybe he'll get enough exposure to start up his own business.
