2200-2500 rpm if you have overdrive.2500 plus if not.

I have a 1989 Honda prelude with a B20A (Similar to the origonal B20A5 engine) with a 5 Speed manual and in overdrive (5th) my rpm's are exactly 1,000 per 20mph. So basically if your going 20 in 5th, ur rpm's will be at 1,000, and so on. 40mph - 2000, 60mph - 3000, 80mph - 4000 and so on. I found that at 130mph it just hits redline at 6750:) dang that cant be good for it

My Auto 1992 Prelude Si (H23 motor) does 75mph @ 3000-3100 rpms. The year of your car would help provide a better answer. The first guy's answer is WAY off, at least for the 4th generation ('92-96) and 5th generation ('97-01) Preludes.

my 4th gen manual gets 20 mph per 1k rpm in 5th gear. that means at 80 im at 4k rpm. at 70 im at 3500k. ur auto should be a little bit lower but not much i assume. hondas run high rpms so they can have power when needed since they arnt very torquey engines.

I don't have an automatic but my 01 manual i think would be around or a bit below 4k

The type of automatic transmission fluid that you should put in your 1997 Honda Prelude varies depending on the transmission. Honda recommends that you use their own brand of ATF when you replace the fluid in the SportShift transmission.

Provided they both share an h22a or f22a engine they should be a perfect match!

If the Prelude is an automatic, yes, you use automatic transmission fluid. If it's a manual, there's manual transmission fluid. As much as possible, purchase the manufacturer (Honda) branded transmission fluid.

Some of the features that are offered in the 2001 Honda Prelude are automatic windows and door locks, sunroofs, power steering, and the option of cruise control.

They do if it is an automatic transmission. The Prelude (except Si) has the same manual transmission as well. The Prelude Si has a slightly different manual transmission, but it will still fit into a 1986-1989 Accord.
