2nd Gen Eclipse Turbo would hands down. Done it many times. Prelude is quick, but not quick enough. Without the turbo, the prelude will win every time.

depends if the eclipse is turbo or not. If the eclipse is turbo, it has the prelude beat, but a non-turbo won't stand a chance against the prelude.It also depends on the driver. You can have a turbo eclipse but still can get beat by the prelude if you don't know how to drive it correctly to get the most speed.

Stock non-turbo, H22a VTEC Prelude would win. There are h23/f22 preludes. Both are non-vtec. And you wouldnt be able to tell unless you open the hood. That would be the only time a DSM would win. I read an article a while back claiming that the H22a 4th gen is the second fastest FWD N/A vehicle. But this was a while ago.

Are you asking which is faster in a drag race or which is faster in an auto cross? Or just straight hp?You also have to take into account the driver - a crappy driver in a more powerful car will lose to a good driver in a less powerful car.The car isn't necessarily what determines the outcome of the race.
