ZX3 vs Prelude - Summer 06

Well there is a kit at my school that owns a 97 Prelude with an H23(?) Vtec motor swap. Right now I know he will win, but I told him give me until spring/summer to race so I can save up for a few mods. I am not sure what he has done to it completly, all I know is he bougt the car like that and doesnt know much about cars besides "this looks fast". I said give me 5 bolt on mods and we will race. Suspension/wheels done count.

-Ryan

The h23 were from the early 90's Preludes, don't see what he would have been gaining by going with it unless he has just a base Prelude to start. I remember they were 190hp from the factory back then.

Another buddy of mine, a "Honda, Acura or no car because everything else sucks" buddy of mine, said it was pushing around 220hp, I dont know if I quite believe him but I wanna race him.

prolly higher compression, and valves and cams might be different. I dont' know either, I am just guessing.
