Does anyone know which car is faster for sure? They both have two hundred horsepower and are relatively close in size. But the Prelude has a 4 cylinder engine which means it may weigh less. If anyone knows please let me know. Thanks!!!

If you are talking 5th gen Prelude and both cars stock, it is a very close race. I believe the SH model is slightly slower than the Base model.

Base model has VTEC it doesn't have the SH stuff though. Non-SH 5th gen ludes are faster than SH. Stock for stock VR vs. H22 (in the cars the engines came in)...its a driver's race.

So you know, they don't both have 200 horsepower. 12v VR6 has 172 hp, H22 has 200hp. Size doesn't matter but weight does and the Prelude is 2900lbs to the GTI VR6's 2800lbs. Again, driver's race.

Since when?!?!?
Both Base and SH models have VTEC! The Type SH model carries the ATTS (Active Torque Transfer System) which adds weight and a slight loss in power to the wheels. It has always been proven to be slower than the base model.
The Prelude will run approximately 15.0-15.2 in the quarter-mile. It is strictly a drivers game when compared to a Mk3 VR6.

yes both models do have VTEC, but the SH has ATTS(active torque transfer system) and thats what makes the SH heavier...excellent car on the track, http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif for drag racing

Re: (Slvr6Dub)

between the two, its most definitely whose a better drive. Performance of both cars is almost identical, even though the lude has the hp advantage. i would have to lean towards the mk3 on this one though, the older gen 93-96 i guess were faster

lol, assuming 200 at the wheels, then the GTi will be able to run through 3 gears , stop. have a bite to eat at jackinthebox, go out to the car again and finish the race in its favor.
new preludes are slow

I Raced one the other day on the freeway. I had like 1 car length on him then we hit an interchange and I couldnt take the turn at 125 so I eased off the gas and he passed me. It came down to suspention. so he won.
