After looking it up, bluesciontc is correct...the OLD (pre-'96) prelude had an F22.
92 to 96 preplude had three motors.
S: f22 (slowwww, if you win this one, congrats, because that means your tc is not a lemon).
Si: h23 non vtec 160hp + 153 torque. Pretty much the same number as a tc. If you win this by a few car lengths, obviously either the driver was ignoring you, or you are just sleeping as you type. I owned this car for a while. And it picks up speed faster because the gearing is higher (60mph at 3k rpm).
V-tec: H22 (now this is H22) 190 HP. How was the taillight of this lude? I am sure you had plenty of time observing it while it kick your, hmm, whatever.
Anything after 96 would smoke a stock tc as long as the driver is aware of the fact that there is a race, and assuming he knows what to do in this situation.
This guy (bluescion) can't even type right, and this thread had gone on for pages.
Young guys do this all the time. I've heard stories of how a stock stick 95 civic dx beat a dogde viper, smoked a camaro, few minutes later kick a 'stang's arse, then ruined a M3's good night out. And they sounded ten times more convincing then any thing I've read so far.
