Prelude would require some serious weight reduction, it's too heavy. I'd stick to accords, they're a little lighter. that would be my choice.

dude your looking at an application specific engine there. there is going to be so much involved with getting that engine in there. if you do get a 94-97 get a v6 one because the front end was made a little different to fit the stock v6 in there. good luck

dude seriously i was thinking about it a little more. every control on that engine is different that how they did it in the old days. i think the throttle is electronic not cable anymore just to start with. and as far as computer your probably going to want to go with a stand alone engine management system. and i dont even know what your going to do about the TCU if its an auto

i mean yes it could be done. if you took the gas pedal assembly and all the electronics out that run a drive by wire throttle system it would work. make no mistake it can be done....im not saying i am a really good mechanic or anything but i have been working on all sorts of hondas for a long time and i dont think i could do it.

Check with Skunk2 for a throttle body for it that can use a cable They have them for the TSX and RSX but I don't know about the 03+ Accord V6. The hardest part will be making it fit and motor mounts. I saw a video of a 94 Civic sedan had a V6 Legend Type II motor in it and was rear wheel drive. If that can be done then this is possible. It is just a matter of money and time. Good luck.
