    I wouldn't think anyone would consider TRD sports package on a Celica "Riced out". Riceout would be a freaking spoiler on a civic, or a corolla, with chrome wheels. Once you start painting cars as "riced out", you might as well pick on all sporty vehicles from factory source because they all have "rice" designs according to you.

    Yeah, so spend $45,000 on a car that produces nearly the same Horsepower per cylinder as a prelude, does worse on gas, and weighs over 600lbs more than a Honda Prelude VTEC. Smart

    Average price for a 2002 Supra – $35,000
    Average Price for 199x Prelude – $5,000

    Put $30,000 of upgrades into a Prelude VTEC and you'll have a mid 9 second car for the same price as a stock Supra.

    I think I'd rather buy the Supra where I don't have to put in upgrades….

    The only idiot here are you. the guy clearly says the prelude can beat a merc, Such as c180, a160 etc.
    Now you are stupid enough to inmediatly search up the fastest mercedes ever and compare it.

    You wont find a 2002 Supra in the U.S, plus if you do it'll be more than $35,000 plus its rare to find a Supra stock & in good shape yet harder to find it in a manual. Honda Prelude's engine is one of the most reliable engines ever same goes for the 2JZ engine of the Supra but the Supra is a more powerful car but you can tune the Prelude to be faster & stronger than a Supra even if it has mods.

    You obviously know nothing about cars. You didn't even justify why I was wrong: I'll tell you why. I was wrong in ONE statement: "Prelude having more horsepower than a Mercedes"…most Mercedes Benz run on V8s or V10s, Prelude is a Honda engine. But a finely-tuned Prelude will smoke any Mercedes out there (except the racing-editions)

  • Reply Tlaloc Chimali September 18, 2013 at 6:33 am

    But… *sigh*… It's still just a prelude. lol

  • Reply Dark Star September 18, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Yeah, but can YOU afford a 50 THOUSAND dollar Mercedes Benz? Or can you afford a 5 – 15 thousand dollar Prelude? For the cost of that Mercedes Benz, any skilled mechanic can make a Prelude go faster than that Mercedes Benz.

  • Reply Dark Star September 18, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Ahhh look at the cute youtuber who knows nothing about cars trying to make us stop talking about cars.

  • Reply Tlaloc Chimali September 19, 2013 at 3:05 am

    There. Are. Better. Cars. The Eclipse is cool as well as the Lancer(especially the evo series).

  • Reply Dark Star September 19, 2013 at 6:25 am

    Yes, but the Eclipse is either 4WD or FWD… and the FWD version is slow as glue. The 4WD version has 5 gears and low rev limit, the Prelude has 5 gears and a HIGH rev limit. Meaning less chance of a blow-out and you don't have to pay for an upgraded tranny. The regular Lancer is WAY too slow, and the Evo series are WAY too expensive (between 15 thousand and 45 thousand depending on year)

  • Reply Tlaloc Chimali September 19, 2013 at 9:00 am

    You know the Bugatti Veyron has a lower rev limit than a Lamborghini Gallardo, right? That don't mean shit. lol Not to mention you're prizing speed too much. In a practical scenario, a stock Lancer could probably kick a Lamborghini's ass in a circuit considering there weren't too many straights… Lol Well, unless it's against the Aventador. That thing is the best of both worlds.

  • Reply Dark Star September 19, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    Why are you bringing up cars that cost more than a house when I'm talking about CHEAP cars? -.- And yes it does mean shit. The Bugatti Veyron also runs on 2 V8 engines made by Volkswagen and has 36 radiators to keep it from overheating. It's shifting mechanism also causes it to shift faster than a blink of an eye. That's why that car gets from 0-60 so fast, and is able to exceed speeds of 250MPH. And no, a Lancer would NOT beat a Lamborghini's ass. They're made for the turns, dude. 4WD.

  • Reply Tlaloc Chimali September 20, 2013 at 4:50 am

    Hey, man. You need a good example and I'm fully aware Lancers won't win a drag race against super cars. lol

  • Reply Dark Star September 20, 2013 at 5:15 am

    I never said a drag race. You said "on the circuit". I was talking about a real race. Drag races are stupid and pointless. REAL skill is put into making a car go around a TOGUE pass.

  • Reply Tlaloc Chimali September 22, 2013 at 4:07 am

    That's what I'm talking about. Lol Anything that's not a straight, the modern Lancer's traction control has advantage and if you're gonna give me that "cheap car" thing again, I don't know what to tell you. If 20-25 stacks is too much, you might want to think twice about modifying your vehicle.

  • Reply Dark Star September 23, 2013 at 4:42 am

    25 stacks ain't too much when it comes to MODS!.. When it comes to actually BUYING THE CAR, yeah it's too much…

    @Rodolfo Rivera ok preludes are cheap for 5k Oook a supra is 45k …umm how is that better?? Please be a dumb ass I love it, why you ask? let me see a stock supra vs a stock prelude with a h23 blue top stock witch would only win by like 2 to 3 car let me just light weight the car a little and add some power maybe just 2k or 3k to the prelude and we got a win ..with 2 to 3 k you won't be able to make more power with the SUPRA because all there parts are expensive as fuck..that much money would buy a turbo set up that's it for the SUPRA, more money will get it installed and tuned because you have to tune it ..with that much a prelude will have a turbo fuel pump rails and a tune ..ok you wanna do supra money big baller you pay 45k for the supra I put 5k for prelude you put 6k in motor you have a 600-700hp supra at 3800 to 4000 lbs ..ok I put 6k in a prelude I have a 600 to 700 hp turbo set up in it and only weigh about 2800 to 3100 lbs and the winner because it's lighter will be the prelude, remember there's such thing as power to weight, and you put a total of 51k into your supra and I only put 11k total invested in the prelude that would win and that's a cheap piece of shit car..but since your a big baller and love spending money go for it, get a supra, spend that much money to it and lose to a car worth a lot less if not a prelude a 1986 crx with a turbo h22 that only weighs 1700lbs ..I hope you got really deep pockets …

    No matter what you pay for a car. You have to appreciate the vtec preludes. Very quick with minor mods. Great handling cars. And very sexy. I drive my old mans 11  ctsv and own a modded 4g eclipse. Depending on the lude. They will run a circuit with either. Even stock. Fun cars. No haters. 🙂

  • Reply Spook84 August 29, 2014 at 3:10 am

    The Celica should of won but if your not landing in vvtli then the prelude got it, the Celica weighs about 400 pounds less, you have to be a good driver in the Celica to land vvtli plan and simple. Basic bolt ons mod for mod should be Celica every time.

    that was a close one.

    I dont think people realize the H22a4 motors rev to 8400RPM. Im not sure what the Celica GTS goes to, bt if we are arguing weight to power ratios… Then i still take the Honda motor for its gigantic aftermarket. you can always reduce weight in a prelude. My 98 started at arond 2940 curb weight before i stripped. I have managed to get down to the low 2800 curb weight with simple trunk stripping… Spare tire, jacks, lining unnecessary plastic etc. You can like the Celica GTS all yo want. its still a chick car like an eclipse

    Man, all the haters here.. Wow. Both cars are great in their own way, neither is "garbage." I've had Honda Vtec and Toyota VVTL-i. Both are fun. I own a 2000 GT-S now with 240k miles, and still kicking. Doesn't use any oil and drives like a dream. Sub 6-second 0-60, 6 speed manual, great handling, sharp lines. Not much more you can ask for from a 20 year old car. And what it lacks in torque, it makes up for in revs. 8400 rev limit, spins the tires into second gear. It's not perfect, but it's great for a 1.8L that gets 30 mpg. The car deserves some respect.
