Parts list... Need feedback

Hey guys, I wrote this up to get all the input I could get. I have a POS '93 Lude with a SOHC f22a1 in it. I'm pushin only 120 or so HP and would be happy with gettin her back to stock 133HP but much happier if I could exceed that I'm not goin to be able to mod this car like I would like, lack of funds being the main reason lol, but I would like to do everything I have to/want to do RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. I'm NOT lookin for a high performance ride just something fun. This is my daily driver and sat night play thing BTW. This car was cheap and has prob been abused quite a bet by it's former owner(s) so I'll have to fix some things b4 I do any mods to it.

PLEASE give any advice on WHAT parts I should invest in and how much I should be prepared to spend on them... and if you know of a hook up or someone parting out their lude that I might be able to buy them from please let me know!

[I put these are in order of importance]

THINGS I NEED TO FIX:
1) Alignment (b/c I just had to replace a tie rod)
2) Fuel pump (performance pump or stock pump $143 from autozone?)
3) Fuel filter
4) Battery
5) Radiator/cooling fan (already decided on the FAL slim fan just havn't had the cash to get it just yet)
6) Brake pads and rotors (will prob. get normal/stock Autozone brakes since my car isn't that fast to begin with. Prob never will be very fast lol)

THINGS I PLAN TO UPGRADE:
1) Sun visors (mine were mysteriously gone when I bought the car lol)
2) Front grill vents pieces (by the head lights)
3) Plastic turn signal pieces that actually holds the bulbs (I've been lookin at junk yards and people parting out their Ludes for these first 3 things but no luck yet)
4) Two 6x9 speakers (been lookin on Craigslist for these)
5) Paint for valve cover
6) Coilover springs and possibly more suspension pieces to lower the car (the ride is rough as hell and she's at stock ride hight now which is killin me lol!)
7) Sand and (black) primer (I will prob do this myself but any advise or tips would be greatly appreciated)
8) Cold air intake (Does it really matter what brand or price, air intake is a air intake right?)
9) Header (I've been told that the header can make a world of diff and NOT to buy cheap. True?)
10) Exhaust and down pipe
11) Front bumber and/or lip
12) 8-12" sub woofer
13) Battery relocation to trunk (already got the parts just havn't had time to do it)
14) Simple wire tuck (FREE! yay lol)


ANY mods that you think I missed that would be cheap power adders??? Don't have money for a swap or turbo but would like to add as much power as I can get the cheapest way possible. Please give me as much feedback as possible. I love my POS lude! Thanks

Whew. Thorough post haha.

I would spend your money on an H22 man. You could find one online or maybe one used somewhere. You will surpass 133hp real fast and prob. get more enjoyment out of your car than any other way.

As far as all the little touches that sounds good. Just work out a list of priorities and go for it.

It takes time.

Why do you need 2 6x9's? Our cars are 6" all around.

Ya I guess an MSD ignition would truly help out a worn out F22 keep up with the speed of VTECH cordless phones.

A 6"x9" speaker is obviously an oval where as the speakers in the Prelude are 6" circles. You can go with a 6.5" since that is what I went with. Go for components in the front since we have a place for tweeters and then normal 6.5" speakers in the back. If you had the VTEC model you would have a place for a 6"x9" in the middle of the back seats, but thats it.

Cool, thanks dude.

ANYBODY got a good option for a LIGHTWEIGHT battery for under $200. I found an Odessy battery that only weighs 15lbs but I'm not sure if its worth the extra 50 bucks. Plus, the guy (from Batteries inc) told me that that battery would work fine for a sub n amb later on but wouldn't last long at all if you ran the stereo while the engine was off... just not sure if its worth it.

I know it may sound funny but Weight really does make a diff. I've taken out the A/C, cruise control, and gotten a half size rad along with taking out my truck BS (spare, jack, lining, etc...) which has prop taken out about 60-65lbs already! Another 30lbs would be make a total of almost a 100 pounds! Correct me if I'm wrong...
