A 1992 Prelude SI VTec (manual tranny) runs a 15.2 @ 93 per Car & Driver, Dec. 1992

I have an unconfirmed report of a 1992 Prelude Si (Automatic AFAIK, not sure) 4WS <--- don't know what that means, running a 15.9 (no MPH)

cool, didn't know they had that - so that shouldn't have an impact on a 1/4 mile run aside from weight - MAYBE - for the mechanisms to run that

It's a little slower than a Duratec Taurus.

FWIW, Preludes (and all Hondas, for that matter) feel a lot faster than most other cars. I don't know what it is--lack of sound insulation, stiff suspension, ride height? Seriously, though, my cousin's Civic DX with fart cannon and $50 "CAI" feels like it would run 13s, but I doubt if it could break into the 15s on an ideal day.

1994 Honda Prelude SI 4WS.

Base Number of Cylinders: 4 Base Engine Size: 2.3 liters
Base Engine Type: Inline 4 Horsepower: 160 hp
Max Horsepower: 5800 rpm Torque: 156 ft-lbs.
Max Torque: 4500 rpm Drive Type: FWD

I've had honda's all my life and they really suck in automatic. They are really boggy at the start. Takes awhile for them to whined out unless you own an S2000 or NSX-T.
You should be able to launch on this guy no prob of the line if you have a duratec.
