Re: performance for prelude

if you have 4 g you could do alot . are you mechanically inclined if so you could build a serious motor for that . if not id go with header test pipe throttle body nice cold air intake after marked intake manifold or modded stock port matched decent clutch and flywheel ( i suggest act from personal exp and multiple set ups ) kyb and skunk springs are a nice upgrade from stock ( unless u wanna go coil overs ) then id go tein . apexi neo and a tune . oh yeah jdm one piece black headlights some hids and some all red tail lights . gotta show off a little on the outside .

Re: performance for prelude

I'm pretty sure the standard is to start with intake, header and exhaust. If you're going towards a N/A build that it is. If you're wanting to go turbo, well, I guess I'd start looking into what you need to do start building your motor up.
I'm nowhere near being a turbo expert, so can't really tell ya' what to do there. Just look around and use the search function and you'll find whatever you need. Good luck with the build.

Re: performance for prelude

Dude, with 4k you can do some serious damage. My opinion, sleeve it, get some forged pistons, and work towards boost...

Re: performance for prelude

It all depends on what your overall goal is. If your going for some serious performance and plan on spending time on the track then go for turbo but expect to spend more than $4,000 if you plan on doing the build right the first time and not have to redo it because you cut corners.....smh....which in the end will cost more money and more headaches. If you want some moderate power and ease of mind and everyday reliability then you can start spending money on an all motor build. Either way you choose you will have fun,just check around both sections on the forum for boost applications and n/a and look at what others have done and how much it cost them to get a better and more accurate idea of how much it will run you.

the smiley face was there showing it was a joke, we all know that ALL preludes handle very well. haha.

I still say if you have 4g to put down now, you could get it sleeved and get forged pistons put in. if you can throw 4gs away like that, im sure you will have money to put in to work towards boost no problem. I say build it so its bulletproof first, then piece together turbo parts.

Re: performance for prelude

support a fellow luder selling custom short throw shifters... I love mine.

here's my review (there's a link to the buy it thread inside this thread):

http://www.preludezone.com/buyer-sel...r-reviews.html

other than that, do what you want... work towards boost, or get a tri-y hytec replica header, throttle body, intake mani, exhaust, etc and have the bitch dyno tuned.

Re: performance for prelude

thanks for the replys guys... i should be more specific i want to start from the internals up i want to make this "bullet proof" i want to turbo it but i will wait and build it up from pistons up. so what is the best company for pistons and should i bore out the cylinders and put bigger ones in. and also after that i was thinking i should do a valve swap and put new crank and cams in where is the best site to find the parts i need

Re: performance for prelude

I see that very few people have mentioned tunning.... Before you go into pistons and boost you may want to look at tunning the car.... i mean you do drive a Tuner after all. lls Me and diamondlude have been looking into neptune, over hondata or AEM so you should most deff look into that.

Re: performance for prelude

why would you tune BEFORE you mod the car? tuning a stock prelude is like trying to see how many ways you can put your pen back together and have it still click.

Re: performance for prelude

NO sir i dont mean tune it first i mean he should look into it before buying the actull parts first. lol nice comparisone doe. But what i mean is he should focuse a little bit more on the not so obvious first thats all. If he talks to a tunner and see what numbers he can pull and if the match his wants he may be able to save a few hundred dollars or so.

Re: performance for prelude

Very good point. Also speaking on the not so obvious stuff, have a budget on the side for **** to break or go wrong. because when you are tuning cars, you can fkn count on it.
