Icon6 just need an opinion

so im going to college so im starting to save for it. but i got my prelude to pass inspection, finally, and i got HIDs for it and i just ordered my o2 sensor so hopfeully my gas mileage will go up. now i am willing to buy 1 more thing for my prelude and then wait for a long time till i do anything else for it,

now im trying to make up my mind oin whether to get a COLD AIR INTAKE or and ACCORD TYPE R LIP for the front. My car is stock H23a and the few things ive done is: repair muffler, new spark plugs, HIDs, and full speaker swap and headunit (Pioneer =])

so CAI or ATR lip??????? or u can suggestt anything else thats around $100-$150 price range

Re: just need an opinion

haha you were the one who never bought those transmission solenoids! loser!

anyway, i think the cai would be a good choice. one of the best bang for the buck things you can do.. i mean it sounds good, adds little hp but some throttle response and all.. id get the cai!

hows your transmission?

Re: just need an opinion

If you get the CAI, you will spend 1.5 to 2 times the gas money you normally do because you won't wanna stop listening to it...

NOOOOOO!!!! NO EBAY INTAKE! biggest mistake of my life! those pipes are made of PLASTIC. heat + plastic = bad. i had a short ram intake from ebay and at first it was fine. sounded nice. felt good. long story short, that sht started to crack. and that caused a whole laundry list of issues for me. eventually i put my stock intake on, saved cash and now im a proud owner of an AEM CAI and i couldnt be happier! u gotta pay to play. if u cant afford new, search around, get a used one. $150 is a fair price. which reminds me. ebay cold air intakes have ****ty filters. and as u know, the air filter goes well into the fender well to get cold air. now lets say u run over a puddle. thats hydrolock. if want to get a bypass valve, u gonna have to cut PLASTIC inlet pipe to fit it. which will only make things worse. i dont wanna burst your bubble or anything bro, but i had one bad ebay experience, and i stayed away from it ever since. high quality brand name parts is what im sticking to, even if it means i have to wait a little longer for them. ebay is good for maybe some exterior parts or sound equipment, but i will never again trust it for my ludes engine, safety, and performance.

that goes for you too h23a1ftw. and im pretty sure any intake u buy u will need to modify somthing, brand name or not. when i got my AEM, i had to cut the hole were the inlet pipe goes through a little bigger for it to fit.

Ummm I got my Ebay intake for $29.95 shipped. It's a metal pipe, consistent diameter all the way through, and compared to my friend's AEM and my other friend's Injen, of similar construction quality. I mean..it's a damn pipe. Where are these plastic ones you speak of? just point that one out and inform the OP not to buy it, cuz there's dozens of choices.

I'll give you the knock on the filter quality though, but it's common knowledge at this point that if you buy something that looks like a K&N that's not a K&N brand..well..you know.


P.S. Stock intake system; made of _________? (Hint: Not metal)

lol true, but not the same plastic that that pipe is made of! OEM is made to be heat resistant. and the the main inlet pipe is rubber i believe... but ebay is ebay. maybe u got something different. i was jst talking bout my experience. it feels like metal, but its jst thin plastic.

It fits. The 4th and 5th Gen engine bays are close to identical. It took me 3min to put on cuz I couldn't find a flathead screwdriver. Two things about it though;

-There's two soft metal bracket things that intake kit come with that I still haven't found a use for. You can see them in the picture on the Ebay page.

-Theres a small vacuum line that will have nowhere to go. You can block it off supposedly, but I just retro-fitted a mini air filter on it cuz it made my idle jump up and down when I first started it in the cold. When I get an idea how, I'm gonna fit it back into the intake, but it really has no adverse effect on performance.

Re: just need an opinion

i know you said you already ordered a intake but didnt you say you repaired your muffler?

imo a good muffler/exhaust would have/be the best money spent, it is good for looks,sound,and performance

Re: just need an opinion

you can get the exhaust tip name brand cheaper than the whole exhaust system.
If you plan to go boost, you need atleast 3 inch piping. if not, 2.5 inch would work, depending on the shop that can make that piping for you should be less than 2-300. The exhaust its self probably would be around 200-400, depends on what you want to use. If not, just research, youtube sounds, and save save save.
Exhaust brands would be: apexi, greddy, borla, etc.
Some members cars have apexi dunk exhausts, apexi n1, greddy ti c (correct me if i'm wrong)

save money ! buy what you want!

exactly! you could do the exhaust piping decently cheap at shops in your area, i know a mineke in my town that does good work on exhaust and did my first prelude with 2 1/2 in piping from cat back for 160$ and i brought them the tip

all of the above brands are nice but dont leave out tanabe medalion line, i have hyper medallion and i love the sound!

Re: just need an opinion

there are only 3 preludes i know of that are owned by "enthusiasts" in fayetteville.

myself, a guy whos 4th gen looks remarkably close to mine, and a 5th gen who seriously wants to be in Tokyo drift.

now if your asking as far as people to do work? my engine/paint guy is like a honda god. he built a b18 to hold 36lbs of boost and ran 719whp on the dyno on full boost. put the motor in a crx and was running 9's in the 1/4; also he did my h22a swap in about 4 hours

and i'll get around to posting a video of my exhaust one day soon, im gonna document my rev speed and do a before and after with the flywheel im about to get

*edit*heres a damn close replica of how mine sounds
