Just Got Black 5th Gen!

It's a totally stock black 5th gen. I wanted to know of any good upgrades I should do to it. It's a 5 speed base model (non Sh). What mods would you recommend doing first to increase performance? Also I was thinking about putting some rims on it, can you recommend a nice looking pair? Another upgrade to the exterior I was thinking about were black Jdm euro style head lights, what do you think?Thanks for looking anything would be helpful.

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

you know not jack your thread or anything.. but one of the best things about owning a
car that you want to get to know a bit better is choosing your own style and set up to go with. a lot of the dudes/girls on here have great suggestions for performance.
but it depends on how experienced you are and what you're going for?

as towards making it look pretty. do some research and take your pick. we could all tell you what to do but where's the fun in that?

welcome to PZ. and good luck

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

When I got my lude (black 5th gen) It already had a cold air intake. Best bang for the buck right there. Next step was the rims. Ive got black 5 spoke with a polished aluminum lip. Just an Idea....

That may be true, but people have to come up with their own creative ways of upgrading their car somehow and by that he has to get ideas and that's where we can suggest or state our opinion which that's what a forum is for and from there on he can make his own decisions.

i was putting my 2cents in basically stating. hey get some ideas, but stay true. i like originality.. thats all..

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

black jdm euro style? I dunno about that, but the blacked out depot headlights are well backed. for some performance go i/h/e, plugs and wires. lower it. just shop around at a bunch of places for new shoes

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

how much money do you have and want to spend? those are some big factors in performance, rims, and interior mods. and to make a suggestion i think you should drop it.

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

if you're into handling, upgrading your suspension with a performance spring/strut combo or coilovers would be the way to got along with some sway bars and the strut tower bars if you like.

if you're into power mods, starting off with the basic intake, headers, and exhaust will give you a few extra ponies under the hood.

if you're into looks, a nice lip-kit and wheels would be the way to go.

its your car so its up to you to develop a taste for what you want. best of luck, keep us updated.

Honestly I don't have that much money to spend on it, I'm going to try and do the best mods first with the money I have. Also what do you guys think about the black euro style headlights?

Re: Just Got Black 5th Gen!

Well I have about the same car 97 base black, but not stock black its a House of Kolor black metallic w/ gold flake. Looks really good in the sunlight. Can't see the flake until your up close. Well I am still rolling on the stock blades, for performance IMO they are pretty much it, smaller lighter than most cheap aftermarket rims. Now here it is most people are going to give their opinion on rims, most will tell you 17" and something light, yes that is the best for performance but for a huge price like gram lights or some other lightweight wheel. I like to keep a little meat (tire) on the rims. Hit a pothole w/ a 40 or 35 sidewall and you'll see what I am talking about.

Performance the usual additons Intake, cat back, header. Most are looks mainly and other will tell you you can gain alot of power with these additions but for a huge cost here as well for not that much of a gain. I think the car performs well already, I would just run a good tire, maybe beef up the suspension. Good luck with it I know your going to like it.
