Icon5 Sooo which one should I go with?

I was surfing the net a while back looking for some inexpensive mods I could give my lude next, and the final run off is between a short ram exhaust, full catback exhaust, gauges, or lambo doors. Ricey I know, but hey, I'm only 16 lol. I'm a do-it-myself kinda guy, and I can't find any write ups for installing lambo doors on a 4th gen. As for the gauges, I want them installed like this:



The three gauges that would be in front of the passenger. I've got enough experience with bolts and wires to do these kind of things, (not TOOO sure about exhaust) but I was wondering what you guys think I should go with.

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

hahaha for the gauges I was gonna go with an ammeter or voltmeter, and oil pressure gauge, and something else just for show. But I guess I might as well go with a mod that does something. I think I'll go with the short ram intake on this one. Which would you guys suggest between AEM, Injen, and Weapon R?

Honestly I've never heard of Weapon R before, but with their price being $75 more than AEM I figure they've gotta be good.

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

why gauges if u dont have a turbo? it will only be embarrasing for you when u have all those gauges and some one asks you what turbo set-up u got running and u tell them its jst for show. no offense, but if u want to go in that direction, forget the exhuast and intake, buy a body kit, and weld some fart can to yr exhaust and now u r slow and furious. lol. sry if i sound rude. not my intention. jst want to save u the embarrasment later. save money and go for i/h/e. thats my opinion.

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

^^^ Nothing wrong with gauges!!! I get asked if my car is turbo too, but not because of gauges but because of the way it pulls! I have coolant temp, volts, vacuum, air fuel (narrow band.lol) and oil pressure. Driving just isn't the same without coolant temp, volts and oil pressure (coolant temp is ideal to know when you have no coolant/coolant leak, are too cold for VTEC, are running too warm or when your fans aren't working; volts is good in that it ensures you can start your car (ie diagnose a flat battery/failed alternator before it cuts out); oil pressure is rather self explanatory, also good indicator of how warm the engine is etc)! As for gauge placement, don't cut up the great 4th gen dash (as in the pic above)! Not reversible and what if your holes aren't flush?

As for bodykit and fart can, fair call. If you want to stand out that is the way to go, but then it's all show no go!

Getting an exhaust and intake is the place to start, then get accessories!

yes that is. nice. if cell phones werent enough. lol

yeah dood get the exaust. the others are a bit risky. if you get or mess up the gauges and dont like it... you need a new dash. great. if u mess up the lambo doors(there are both bolt on hinges and welding hinges) thats a lot of work to go back.

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

But honestly man, do what you wanna do. If you wanna do the gauges...just take your time. Remember, measure twice, cut once.

Not to sound like an ass to you or anything but, if your always attributing gauges with a car being boosted you need to widen your knowledge about cars... I personally feel that after a certain level of modification to ones car, one must make sure their engine is properly balanced and running correctly at all times with the use of gauges.. (ex) air,fuel,temp,oil and boost if car is boosted...

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

^win. it isnt just for show, it does have a purpose if hooked right. intake/header/exhaust are usually the first things done. I do believe going with intake would be a good start. then header, then saving up for a good clean exhaust, for me, I like my car like how i like my women, Inside-out; meaning I like personality over looks, and engine over looks ;D

Re: Sooo which one should I go with?

its one thing to have a few gauges, but what gets me is when people put giant tachometers on there dash. i get a good laugh out of that all the time. like it's just necissary to have something that big buldging from your dash when you could simply look at the one in front of you. :) haha just sayin.

LMAO no offense taken. That was a good laugh to start off the day lol. But the gauges I would get are the absolute basic. With it being an old car and all, I think it would be nice to know how the engine is doing as I keep going. There was ONE occasions where I drove 30 minutes to a friend's house, and when I parked in the driveway, my car just died. Lights and everything. I knooooww I didn't stall (everyone asks that) because I was in neutral hahaha. but this was the first time I was really playing my music loud, and the first time I was running both of subs in the trunk so I just attributed it to that.
