I didnt know that 5th gen SH's had stock 16 inchers!!! Well i dont focus on the 5th generation optional choices very much..Ludeboy said:Type SH adds:
SH specific 16" wheels that are slighty heavier then the base wheels
the 4th gen is 92 to 96 model years. if you're lookin for the strongest engine, go for the 5th gen. 5 more hp than 4th gen.Patdow1 said:I have a 4th Gen Accord that I want to put a H22 in. And I want the fastest stock engine and according to the post I have read you say it is the 4th gen engine. What years do you consider 4th gen.
aite so what makes the SS heavier than the base??Ludeboy said:
The SS or sportshift Prelude is the slowest stock because it weighs in more then the base and puts less power down to the wheels because automatics are less efficient then a standard manual.
just a little FYI, the SS is an option only on the base model. the SS is an automatic with the tiptronic shifting (autostick, automanual, sportshift whatever you wanna call it) and automatic transmissions are generally heavier than manual trannys.ReCK1 said:

Actually your should be looking for the H22A1's not the H22A4's for the OBD1 and the closed deck design. I think pre 96 engines.Patdow1 said:I have a 4th Gen Accord that I want to put a H22 in.

the header supposedly gave the 5hp increase. there have been tests done on each header and they are identical in design. all 5th generation preludes usually dyno right around the same hp as well. imo, honda claimed that the 99 and up model gained 5hp so the car would sell better.i97supratti said:The 97-98 5th Gen accords have 195 HP. The 99-01 have 200 HP. It is the same engine, what makes the 5 hp difference? I am planning on getting a 5th gen lude and I see a 98 Type SH locally listed for $11k, which isnt bad. But I might wait for a 99-01 Base or SH because of the extra HP and the mesh grill that the 97-98 does not have.
For my Accord LX, all you have to do is change the intake manifold of ur F22A4 to the F22A6 and you get the HP that the Accord EX has. Is it the same way with the 5th gen luds?
LSD and ATTS are not the same, but the LSD will probably be simpler, more reliable, and cheaper to install. Its not worth huge trouble and expense to make a base lude into an SH. Im just glad I got an SH from the beginning. Sorry to hear your car got smacked by a bimmer...psstoffprelude said:Is there any way to put the ATTS from a SH on a Base model, and how much does this run, what parts or how many parts are neccessary for the install. Where in g-d's name do i find an ATTS system? I hear you can't have an LSD and ATTS but didn't the Type-S in Japan feature both? And again i guess a common question is which is better ATTS or LSD? Should i just throw an LSD on there and be content instead of shelling out the money to swap the ATTS, is it a pretty close comparison? And if anybody can tell me why I didn't buy a damn SH from tampa instead of driving to Orlando and having the "brand new" motor blow when i got back to Miami and then find out a year later the car was a rebuild? Use car-fax, because i'll beat the kid with a cam shaft but now i really want leather seats in a type SH with a Type S motor, AND I DON'T HAVE one and that sucks! Now i have to fix the whole left side of my base model thanks to a hit and run 3.25i. Can you say $6,000 and not 1hp gain?(engine and body repair).
NOOO! You cant have ATTS and LSD. Just install LSD or sell your car for a Type SH. BTW the U.S. Type SH does not have standard leather seats. The only interior diff is leather shift knob, steering wheel, and door lights, oh and the ATTS light on the dashpsstoffprelude said:yeah BMW sucks, and so do most of their drivers but thats ok the M3 is dope. The real question is can I put both ATTS and a Limited Slip Differential? And if i can about how much would that run me? I was gonna buy the interior from a type SH but I figured i'd prolly end up only having 2 racing seats and no back seats in the end.
