I have finally found 2 cars that I like the
Eclipse 1990-94
Prelude 1992-96

Which one would you guys get. I like the interior of the Eclipse better but the exterior of the prelude look really nice. Which engine is better of the two and how about quality.

And the Final questions which one can I do the most mods on.

Which trim levels of each did you have in mind?

Drive slow homey...
Drive slow homey
You never know homey might meet some hoes homey
You need to pump your brakes and drive slow homey

But anyway

Good choices, I would go with the eclpse GSX over the prelude, if you do get a prelude...Get a type SH

Prelude Si VTEC is great then. So is the Eclipse, but in personal preference I like the Prelude's exterior better and the interior is most definitely the winner of the two IMO...

GSX or Vtec Prelude are both excellent choices IMO. The GSX will be cheaper to get faster but the Prelude will handle better. Up to you.

I would choose better handling :2cents:

There is no Type SH in 92-96, only Prelude S, Prelude Si and Prelude VTEC. The Type SH came out for 97-01 and it actually was slowest of the 97-01 Ludes because the trim level added on a bit of weight.

What do you thingk of the Eclips GST? DO you thingk i should wait around for a GXT?

I personally dont like turbo FWDs in general. The GSX is a much better choice IMO and it will go faster for cheaper than a GST.

I agree. I would go with the GTX as well. I know there are alot of parts out there for both cars, so pircing shouldnt make a difference between the two. The GTX is a factory turbo, although Im not sure about the Prelude, its a pretty upgradable turbo system.

He typoed the GXT... He meant to type GSX. Which is the AWD version of the Eclipse.

And by saying "its a pretty upgradable turbo system", are you referring to the Prelude? BEcause no Prelude was factory turbo'ed.

Wow, there's no such thing as a GXT, the 323 GTX is a Mazda (great bang for the buck... BTW).

GSX/TSI AWD/RS-T AWD = turbo & AWD Eclipse/Talon/Laser
GST/TSI FWD/RS-T FWD = turbo & FWD Eclipse/Talon/Laser

Personally I'd get a TSI AWD, but that's just me. The FWD car is going to be faster from a roll, the AWD cars are killers from a stand still, and the FWD will give better gas mileage. The turbo system is very responsive to modifications and will net much larger gains than similar money spent on the Prelude performance.

Honda has never officially imported a factory turbocharged car to the U.S. They have only ever produced two factory turbo cars excluding Formula 1, the Honda City Turbo, and the Honda Legend 2.5L Turbo.

I'd personally go with the GSX, but I have a biased opinion.. I just think they look better, and have quite a bit more potential.. I don't know much about Preludes though.
