3-4 seconds in you can slightly hear a sound the resembles a turbo spool.

6 speed with 150k. it got pretty heat soaked waiting in line. the prelude isnt dyno tuned yet but yeah turbo'd and forged internals with a super rich map.

hmmm .... based on what I could see/hear from my iphone the honda doesn't seem boosted or as people said if it is its only a few psi.

Good race tho man

is that common in lt1's.
damn, my car over heating is my least worry.
seems like the my ls can idle for an hour in 100 deg and not ever get hot.

The older Preludes were 16/17s cars, so a 93mph trapspeed from a boosted one on low psi sounds about right.

Should be faster. My GTA ran a 14.2. With minor stuff.

My brother's honda will do 15.0's with a little single cam VTEC. Thats pretty bad if that thing is actually boosted. Any more info on it? Stock motor, swapped motor, PSI?

I was running an LT1 camaro one night at LVD that would do consistent 14.6's at like 94 mph. I lined up with him probably 3 times that night. Poor kid got his heart broken every time by my old 2000 firehawk, and I was running shit times myself that night. Seems like LT1's are hit or miss, or they need a driver mod.

well last time i was at the track, a guy was happy that he ran a 16.0 in his 98 sohc vtec civic coupe. he said he has been working to get it to that point, he was intake exhaust, idk what else.

edit: im sorry this may be my first time but unless your brothers car is turbo'd or gutted or sprayed, i have to call BS. a civic si wont run a 15.0 without some decent mods, and that has 35-40 more hp than a single cam, a sohc vtec aint runnin that.

You don't have much room to talk with a 14 second LS1 ;)

Umm, LT1's generally don't have heat soak issues. Yours must have some larger problems at hand

Check out your opti-spark and water... if your Optispark is going out, that means your water pump is probably going bad too.

His bros car is a newer vtec D series motor swapped into an early 89 or 90 hatch, with a few upgrades.

yeah, i was into honda's when i was younger, i had a built/turbo d16z6 delsol, even the newer vtec d-series only make 130 crank. and the usual bolt-on mods give them almost nothing. im not trying to be a douche, i just have a hard time believing a sohc 130hp civic ran a 15.0. but its not a big deal.

idk whats up with your car seems like it should be a bit faster. I had a 95 convertible formula with just a catback and CAI and it ran consistent 14.1 at 98MPH. It also had 140,000 miles on it and 2.73 gears. You should be doing better with an m6 maybe your really high in the sky lol? Whats your elevation? Maybe your car just needs a tune up. Or an actual tune.

Well said. Unless you are going to put a turbo on it you are throwing your money away.

I remember the good old days of 6sp LT1 cars running high 13's stock, brings a tear to my eye.
