JDM Prelude Si vtec bb4 (H22a)
My imported Prelude Si vtec. Quick car, unknown performance manifold,
unknown possible internal work by honda rally engineer, ingen CAI, full
stainless Exhaust system of unknown
make (fitted in Japan, and very loud!). No silly comments please, this is
just here as an informative video to enjoy :)
3000GT VR4 All Wheel Steering demo
Tested with a 1994 3000GT VR4. AWS is pretty visible in this video when I
turn full lock. I turn full lock twice on each side, which is why you see
the wheel pop out twice. At around 3/4 of the way through the video I'm
jerking the steering wheel back and forth, and you can see it activate then
The AWS system is same phase, meaning the rear wheels turn in the same
direction as the front wheels when it activates. The AWS is controlled by a
system of valves at the rear differential. There's a valve that limits the
AWS to above a certain speed, so it doesn't make parking more difficult.
There's also a valve that activates the AWS based on a pressure
differential from the two feed lines from the front power steering rack.
The system is extremely stable for lane changes, and helps keep the rear
end in check in corners. Professional drivers that have tested the AWS
through slaloms say it makes the car feel "different" but they say it's
also easier to go faster because
the rear end doesn't slide out like it would with no AWS.
Notice the Active Aero front air dam in the video. It pops down at around

stupid or hurt yourself, etc.
Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT :
-The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick
shifting and powershifting.
-Constructive comments are welcome.
-Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that
all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly
-Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also
irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making
of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like
it (multiple shifts on a short time).
-Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo !
Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that
you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev
matching near the end.
'93 Prelude VTEC 2.2 DOHC
A walk-around of my Prelude that i just bought. It needs a few things here
and there, but It's very mechanically sound, especially for a 19 year old
car. Paid $2,000 for it. I'm probably going to be p
