cheap easy mods/parts

so Christmas is coming up very soon and i am in store for a few goodies. I was hoping to get something for the lude (bone-stock fifth gen) but i don't have a very high cap limit. there would be about 4 people buying for me with a 50 dollar limit each. they could go together i suppose making it really a 200 dollar limit total...so any good suggestions. i need some ASAP please. and sorry mods if this is in the wrong section.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

lol dude ima save you the grief when the mods start posting here...there going to tell you to search just like i should.

but witha 200$ limit...your not going to get anything worth while...
actually wait i take that back i think i remember someone saying they found a flywheel for 180..so theres your best bet. i'd say examine ebay..you can find good deals if you know what to search for.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

shyt, for 200 bucks you could get all kinds of crap. depends on what you want though. for power you could prob find a megan header on ebay. or an AEM short ram intake. or if they dont want to combine, ngk spark plugs $40-50(not pulstars right john?) from one person and wires $50 from another and K&N filter from another. or if youre lookin for style, the honda oem trim kit either carbon fiber (not real cf :( by the way) or the wood grain $120-180. or shift knob from one $40 and maybe reverse indiglo gauges from another $50 and the grille-tech grille from another $50-70. if i could pick just one, it would be the header. or a combo of 4 i would go with plugs, wires, K&N, and the grille. all of which you can get off ebay.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

$200 is best spent on style CavScoutRyno put up a good list for ya, for performance i would say would be light weight fly wheel, short throw shifter, and im pity sure ya could get some supspention or break up upgrades for the $200.

I would do a few DIY stuff first cheap EZ and gives a nice look to
Hear are a few i like
Silver Gauge Bezels
painting your calipers
paint valve cover
Have a look for a lot more
This can be done for about $30 or so and give it a nice start then the rest is up to you.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

Hmmm if you wanted to go the flywheel route, you could easily do it with some research. People here have gotten Fidanza 8lb Flywheels for $85. I picked mine up for $229, but it came with an Exedy Stage 1 Clutch. I personally would go that route but it's up to you.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

$115 is a pretty good deal on that. They go for a little more than that on E-Bay usually. If you're just doing simple mods (intake, header, exhaust) that will help you squeeze out a few extra ponies, AND increase fuel economy (since Honda's run factory rich and you'll probably lean it out a bit). Just advice though, I wouldn't try to tune something like that unless you know what you're doing.

Re: cheap easy mods/parts

I would stay away from the I/H/E for right now. A knn drop in will do the same as any intake (out side of the type s) header flow about the same (unless you get a custome one for 500+)get a can of header paint and paint it or the heat shield, exhaust need to save up to get a good one.

you could order one of my Type-Q TDM custom cup holders (Patent Pending of course) for around $0.20. and since you'd be the first person, i do name engravings as well so i can through that in for you free. + once it becomes popular and everyone will want it because of the name, you could sell it for billions!
