2010 v6 vs 2000 honda prelude

I've got a 2010 v6 with 93 hybrid bama tune, bbk cai, and a ford racing dual exaust and my buddy has a stock 2000 Honda prelude with a vtec engine. Who would win at the track?

pretty much the best way to put it...it's like comparing a 99-04 v6 to a 99-04 GT stock for stock

I agree with everyone here, there's not much of a comparison between the two. You shouldn't have any issues walking him at the track!

According to the specs, both cars are compatible stock for stock, with a slight edge going to you. But with your mods you should be able to take him.

Prelude can nail very high 14s. A 2011+ V6 will pull a high 14 on a BAD run. The V6 will burn it.

Ya I know!.. Lol. I ran one once with the same basic mods as my GT. I barely hit 4,000rpms and already pulled on him by a few cars!... Lol

If you go to the track, you will see almost NO ONE can drive. They just 'park hard' and smoke the tires.

I'd say less than 5% of people can drive their stock times in a modded car lol.

VTEC Prelude should beat a 99-04 V6 every time, all things equal. Should be a very close race against an '05+ given a good driver, and the edge goes to the Prelude as speeds increase. Assuming you're doing a 1-mile drag race, of course

nobody mentioned a legit event...that of course being ok. however i will say the prelude would still lose. I've raced to many of them in stock trim to believe otherwise. However if you've lost to some that's alright we've all had our own experiences on the track ...good for op to get opinions from all different angles.

No way in hell a prelude would beat a new edge v6. The numbers don't even compare. The si might come close but the prelude has alot less torque than a new edge v6 has

A prelude can run low low 15s to high 14s. A new edge V6 is a mid to low 15 stock. Stock for stock Prelude has the edge. The faster the race, the more the prelude will pull.

Numbers don't lie.

Exactly. Now with that said, with the mods the OP has he should definitely take the win.

Realize that there are also different trim levels of the older Preludes; base, Si, and VTEC. The '97+ cars are all VTEC, but the automatic cars are easily half a second slower in the 1/4 mile than the 5spd cars. Racing an older base/Si car, an automatic '97+ car, or a bad driver in any of the 5spd VTEC cars (and most people suck at driving) can give you a false sense of how quick those cars are.

Contradictory statement. There was '92-'96, and '97+.

look i understand it seems you like preludes...that's cool, but until i run one that beats me i can't say they are quick. They are nice for what they are though...and understand i love me a good four banger...one project car i'm looking at picking up next month is an ae86

It has nothing to do with liking Preludes.

Actually all the 5spd VTEC cars are about the same speed, from '93+. Nice ninja-edit though

Edit: Just out of curiosity, what is your best run at the track?

stock 16 flat...my car is set super stiff for auto x events and the Dragons Tail makes it hard to shift weight for a decent launch which makes me even more curious why the "faster" preludes can't beat me. well this has been fun but i gotta go handle some bickering elsewhere for a bit lol. see ya around the site

Like I said, most people can't drive . Which is why I use numbers that people who can drive run in their cars to judge what is "quick." Going off of what you personally see at the track is no better a gauge of a particular car's capabilities than going off of street races.

I hate to be the tuner back up here but I've taken a few gt when i had my 98 prelude. But its all on the driver ...also i had a jdm prelude with the notorious si R motor from Japan stock . Only available in Canada and Japan. With that being said your stang will beat him but don't mistake the power/weight ratio . My advice don't give him a chance.
