Best Performance mod for ONLY $200?

Hey guys i need some help here, I was getting a Kteller Piping kit for $200 shipped but that plans out the window now. So I need to get something for $200(shipped) that I'll be able feel the difference with. I was thinking a flywheel but that also comes with more than a days worth of work to get it installed. So what else you guys got for me, links would help greatly!

Main point: this car is my DD that i want to have more fun with. all i have right now is an intake and AEM pullies


Soo far I'm thinking :

1. Fywheel/140ish
2. Rear Sway Bar (if i can find it for under 170ish)
3. Megan Racing header/175ish

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

I am a handling guy so I am going to suggest the rear sway bar, you will notice more lift off oversteer and the back wanting to rotate more.

If you understand tire pressure and how it effects the rotational balance you can give your car more grip by adjusting the tire pressure for more understeer with a stiffer rear swaybar, making very neutral witch is what you want.
It is also very easy to install, 30min to a hour. 10-15 if you know what you are doing.

The flywheel would be my 2nd choice, it will give you better acceleration. But will cost a bit to have it installed.

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

no no no.If your getting a rear sway bar get a front with it.waste of time and effort to me for just the rear.Id say the header depending on what size piping you run because you may have to do a collector mod. Id say if you were to get something minor it would be an exedy clutch

No offense bro but its been proven that front sway bars in our ludes do close to nothing, theres people that run there DD without then even on and can hardly feel a difference.

If i get the header then i have to worry about CARB legal problems here in cali, and if do do a 2.5 collector mod that'll happen if and only if i get high flow cat.

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

Rear bars are usually much more expensive then the fronts. A new front would not be a bad idea as well, you should notice less body roll in the front. If you auto-x it should have better corner exit acceleration due to less roll and inside tire lift, which with a open diff will try to spin.

I have no idea how much LSD cost since my car is an auto and no chance of adding one, but that might be a good idea as well. It will help put the power down from the H22.

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

either listen to Dwend or go w/ the flywheel. $200 won't get you too much power wise so i'd say stiffen up that body w/ a neuspeed front upper strut bar and temporarily buy a rear uppper Megan off ebay. that'll run you about $200-$215

or skip that and go w/ the Fidanza flywheel

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

if you're gonna do a flywheel, you might as well do the entire clutch instead of doing the job twice when the stock clutch burns out.
clutch + flywheel combo: $400
if you're paying someone to do it: another ~$400

I don't got money to do both Nick, but that doesn't matter to me. Heres the way it is. Just like the Exhaust my dad isn't going to be down for the Flywheel, so I'm going to get it and put it in at my friends house spend the whole day and hopefully knock it out. When i bought my lude my dad agreed that if anything happened to the motor or tranny he'd take care of it, i.e buy new parts, or what ever it took. so when my clutch does go he's got me covered.

New thought! get this now and for christmas get the sway bar

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

Defiantely get the Rear Sway Bar. Completely worth the moeny. Don't worry so much about the front for now. I have only the rear and still felt an enormous difference.

Unorthodox Racing crank pully... it's 220 but it's something you feel. it's at least a 12hp and torque gain.

There isn't an actual DIY but there are lots of pictures by some of us on the clutch/FW swap. The downloadable service manual is more than enough to figure it out. I used it every step and the install went flawlessly. Just make sure you have an actual lift and a support jack for the tranny.


From reading this thread, I was trying to figure out what kind of gain in performance you actually want. More HP/power, better handling, or just any performance gain at all? You could always do a high-flow cat, a short shifter, the Big 3, high-amp alternator, and/or generic exhaust......Or you could save some more money and get a combination of mods. I don't think you should limit yourself just b/c of how much money you have at this exact time. If it's a DD you should have it for a while. I say research what kind of mod you really want and then determine the amount you are willing to spend. Don't rush it.


I heard those euro taillights will give at least 20 HPs too!

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

Is it a swap H22 or a BB4?
If it is a swap you could do the Vtec front brake upgrade with good pads for under $200, depending on what rotors you buy.
Si vs. Vtec rotors and calipers

Re: Best Performance for ONLY $200?

Yeah pretty much. Unless you decide you want to do Clutch/Flywheel, I got my Exedy Stage 1 Clutch and Fidanza 8lb Flywheel for $229 shipped. If you feel up to putting them in yourself, and that money is burning a hole in your pocket, I say go with that. Or save it.
