2001 is the best one, you get more power + stuff

If money is not a problem, and you really want a Prelude, I would get a Type SH. It should have some oomph in a straight line with 200hp but some handling characteristics. A bit heavy though because of the motor. If you have money, I'd recommend a S2000 which cracks the 200hp barrier and has better handling with rear wheel drive. The down side is that it is only a 2 seater. Another alternative would be the 2001 Civic Si coupes. Those are not bad with 180hp and is lighter.

If you really want a Prelude, the best one would be the 2001 Type SH. It has all the stuff on it and has the H22A VTEC motor. The US version only makes about 200hp. The same motor sold on the JDM market makes 217hp because the emissions stuff is different.































Another option as stated would be the Civic Si's. The '99-'00 isn't that fast. It only has the 160hp B16 motor. The 2001 to I think 2007 has the K20 engine. And it's not 180hp as said, I believe they are 200hp. Same engine as in the RSX Type S.

2001 is the best year for the Prelude. While thy came in manual or automatic, I would avoid the automatic transmission models. The H4 and H5 automatic trannies Honda used in the Prelude was the same troublesome tranny used in all the V6 Hondas and Acuras. The SH model was the best of the Prelude and doesn't have the tranny issues since it was never offered with an automatic. Also, the 2002-2005 Civic Si had the K20 from the standard RSX- which is rated at 160 hp like the B16 in the 1999-2000 Civic Si but with more torque.
