    Hi all, im Sam from Chippenham, Wiltshire.
    My first and formost car is a version of the fifth generation Prelude, a high-performance model called the Type-S, painted in Flamenco Black Pearl. It was only available in Japan. It has the 2.2 L H22A, featuring VTEC and producing 217 HP instead of the standard 185 BHP. the increases came from the Dynamic Chambering air intake, a larger throttle body design bored to 62 mm, a redesigned exhaust system with 2¼" pipes. higher lift cams and higher compression pistons.
    In addition to a higher output engine, the Type-S features an overhauled front suspension layout with double lower ball joints to give a steeper camber curve when cornering.
    Instead of LSD, the Type-S acquired Honda technology known as the Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS), in essence an external hydraulic differential that splits up to 80% of engine output to the wheel that is loosing traction on the bend, effectivly pushing you back into the apex.
    The Type-S has an Active Control ABS system, different from the standard ABS systems.
    This is how I bought it.
