The Prelude has very low support from the aftermarket in comparison to the Civic but it does handle amazingly and looks meaner and sleeker.
I have read articles on a prelude running 500hp but it was a fanatic with alot of money. It really depends on what you are planning to do to your car.
If you were planning on doing light performance mods or a high budget performance buildthan go with the prelude, if you were planning a little more with less money with good gas mileage go with the civic.

Whichever performs better, the prelude looks 100 times better... I'd go with the prelude.
