I bought a 94 prelude type s with a f22b2 motor swap (don't know y this motor was put in ) 5 speed. Now I need help to salvage this classic. I can't c parting out or junking this car. For one its a body style you don't see very often and is one of my fav cars from honda . my original plans for this build was to drop in a b20b low com and the all wheel drive from either the type r or the pilot but after reading up on it it doesn't seem like it will happen do to the loads of fab work needed and me being a newbie. Maybe down the Lind when I have a few more builds under the belt. Anyway trying to figure out if going back to an h22 or with the b18. I want to take it to the track when finished. So that being said I need to know if going n/a or turbocharged would be best.

I'm not really a Honda guy so I'll start by asking what is wrong with the engine in it. Maybe just build up the engine to support a good turbo and make a fun track car till you have the money and skills to do your big build

That engine was probably used because it was what came in the JDM Prelude Si's.

I'm a fan of that body style myself. I didn't like what Honda did to the front end on the later generation. I was actually looking for a 92-96 for a daily driver and they are either crazy overpriced or beat to hell and overpriced.

I wouldn't go B18. I'd either stick with what you got, or find a good H series and go from there.

Stick with an H22. Putting a B-series engine in a Prelude is going to be far more difficult, and pretty pointless IMO. You'd be better off putting in another F-series over a B. The H22 will bolt right up to your transmission, and I believe uses the same mounts as well (been years since I've dealt with an H22 in anything other than a Civic.)

Is there a way to swap front clip of the 94 to the flipout headlight
