Dad got a new car

Hey everyone my dads ram van has a messed head gasket and leaking lots of water so he bought a 1986 honda prelude.

All the details I could see:

-1986 Honda Prelude
-on the engine it says "CV Dual Carb 12 Valve"
-on a label inside the hood it says it's 112 cubic inch (can't seem to find the litres)
-5 speed manual

and some kind of engine identification of "C86D Engine"

as stated it doesnt say the litres like 2.0 or whatever the case may be, and there is no badge on it that says which model it is such as Si or whatever (i'm not too fammiliar with hondas)

pretty soon it will need some clutch work done (pressure plate, and disc) perhaps the whole thing depending on price.

also the front CV joint is pretty noisy and may need replacing.

anyone can help me determine which model it is, prices, or tips on those above repairs would be appriciated.

I'm not a fan of riced out hondas like most of you but they make pretty good daily drivers.

also it has a sunroof, if that was an option on a certain model

I found a site with lots of parts:

http://oem.overnightautoparts.com/pa...e=HO&year=1986

CV joint if it's an Si
http://oem.overnightautoparts.com/pa...C.V.+Joint+Kit

Clutch kit for Si
http://oem.overnightautoparts.com/pa...art=Clutch+Kit

it seems that maybe the Si is only fuel injection from what that page says:
Quote:
Prelude 1.8 (carb)
Prelude 2.0 Si (F/I)

A liter is 1000cc, converting ci to cc is just multiplying by 2.54^3 (once for each dimension)

Edit: I'll even do it for you... 1.84L
