I want the 'lude.

Hey all I just signed up on here because i have found over the past year or 2 I've fallen in love with the Prelude. Currently I'm 16 and I am hopefully close to getting my first car and I'm pushing towards a 4th gen. I love the way the body is styled and the dashboard is just awesome. I 've been talking to my parents about it and it looks like I have a good chance. I need some advice on performance upgrades(under the hood addons and exhaust, etc.) I plan on autocrossing and possibly hitting up some open track days when I'm older. Also I need some opinions on which exhaust I should get, because I want a good quality one that has a good deep sound, but not obnoxious(sp?)

I'm sure some of you are reading this saying to yourselves "What the hell is this kid saying? Shouldn't he just be happy with a car period?" This is true, but ever since I layed my eyes on a Honda I went crazy, then I discovered the Prelude.

Oh and I live in Atlanta if anyone is around here, too.

Glad to be on the forums!

My fifth gen was my first car, man.

I haven't been living with my parents, or family for that matter, for like 3 years, but whatever, they're good cars to start with.

Re: I want the 'lude.

The EVO2 is a real nice exhaust. I'm 16 also and personally if I could start with a fresh lude, I'd do suspension and a VAFC first and maybe an eBay intake. All depends on your budget...

Good luck findin a Lude. 4th gen FTW! Mine is for sale BTW so if you still searchin, gimme a PM ;)

Re: I want the 'lude.

First thing you do to the lude is lower it because stock height is real ugly lol.

tein s tech, or h&r springs/neuspeed springs (sport or race depending how low or stiff you want your car) with koni yellow, kyb agx, or tokico illuminas.

Ground control or tein coilovers for adjustability.

Good exhausts that are not too loud greddy evo2, greddy sp2, tananbe hyper medallion, rsr exmag, and apexi ws2.

Loud exhausts = apexi n1, skunk2, tanabe super medallion, etc.

Good intakes aem or injen.

Check out honda-tech.com in the sponsors section to buy parts from reputable online dealers.

Good luck and enjoy the prelude once you get it.

Re: I want the 'lude.

^pretty good advice

intake and exhaust don't have to be big name brand... custom FTW... ebay intakes are fine so long as you put a good filter on it.
