Icon7 How am I lookin so far?? Any tips??

Hey guys, ive had my lude for about 8 months now.. Ive owned 3 cars before the lude and have never had rims.. and ALWAYS wanted them.. so the first upgrade to the lude were my 17" rims, i already have two 10" kenwood subwoofers with a 1200 watt kenwood amplifier with the Rockford Fosgate capacitor on top of my sub box.. I just had an OBX Bomber Muffler installed a couple weeks ago, and ive read on here that you guys arent to fond with OBX haha but it sounds great! Nice deep sound, ive gotten alot of compliments on it, I am eventually going to upgrade the entire exhaust but for now im happy wit the sound. I am pretty much askin what should i do next? I am currently saving up for the cool air intake, and have the AEM V2 in mind.. other then thats what should i do?? Give me some ideas guys, thanks alot!

Welcome to PZ!

2 questions: Whats your name and where are you from? (and is that you or your girl driving?)

And as far as your next mod, its all up to you. Are you looking for performance? Handling? Maybe some cosmetics? Its really all up to you. Your wallet and your goal.

Re: How am I lookin so far?? Any tips??

Im Mike Im 21 and live in Omaha, Ne. Thats my girl in the last picture ha I just got done washing the lude and was taking some pics, and she wanted to get in one. She always wants to drive it, but im not a big fan of anyone driving it except me. Im pretty much willing to do anything to it.. I work alot, and i work to put money into my car :) Im about to order some tail light and headlight tint, and just tint them both to get that feature done, and done cheap.. and im leaning more towards working on the engine now.. Whats some good cool air intakes that arent waaaaaay over priced, maybe in the range of 75-150$ Just toss some ideas at me.. thanks alot guys

Save the money for a rainy day or for the full exhaust. An intake won't do anything for you without exhaust and THEN a tune, which is several hundred dollars, plus the ECU and chipping. Even if you went with a VAFC, that costs a decent sum of cash.

Word of advice, don't tint the headlights and don't go too dark with the tails. You don't want to compromise safety for looks.

Re: How am I lookin so far?? Any tips??

I'd suggest the resonator delete mod (ENG: How to remove air intake resonator - 5G Prelude) and get a K&N air filter (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/K-N-A...spagenameZWDVW) . But thats what I always suggest...

It looks great so far. How about a lip kit? Carbon fiber parts? Keep up the good work.

Im with E on saving up the money for when ya need it or something a bit more mode wize. Check the DIY section i can name about 10-15 mods you can do that would cost under $100 bucks most are cosmetic tho.
