Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

it all depends on what YOU want to do with your car, not what we want to do with it. you can get a good set of coilovers, you can put in a good system, and you can get a decent header, a catback, an intake. you can get new tires. the list goes on. just shop around for what you want

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

bolt ons: intake, header, exhaust. probably in that order.

none of these will have a significant effect on HP and tq btw

HEADER!!!! haha. and hes right.

dude, to be completely honest, youre not gonna get a sh!tload of power from these engines without spending big money. honestly, id get the type s intake first, because i love mine. but since youre looking at the v2, id just get that. you can get a catback and the v2 for your $700. before all of that though. id definately lower the thing. youll see much more gain/driveablity if youre lowered good, than from a few bolt-ons

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

Save the 700 for the 5 speed swap. Doing anyting, except suspension work, to your car right now really is not going to make a difference with that slush box of a transmission holding you back.

Not to mention, unless you spend 800+ on a header you will see no difference from a stock header.

When it comes to an intake you are best off with your stock one and a K&N drop in filter or a type-s intake with a drop in filter.

Exhaust is really up to you.

if u dont have the money to do the swap now, get ur self a tranny cooler, because ur gonna need for the auto to last as long as possible. then i would do struts an maybe springs. then intake,exhaust an header, maybe a hi-flo cat (depending on wut state u live in) then if any money is left over hids an fog lights if u dont have them already

then take a $20 an go buy some
an UP

X2

If u really want power why not use that money for the 5spd swap? You'll make more power doing that than any of the other things you've listed.
700 is a pretty good amount towards the 5spd swap. I would definitely use that money for the swap bro. I know u prolly wanna buy other stuff for ur car besides swap parts, heck I do too! Lol.
The only thing I've bought for my car was a custom exhaust. I'd love 2 spend this money Im spending for the swap towards a header or other stuff. BUT....its ur car. And if I had 2 give another opinion besides the swap I would definitely say header. If u want power go with bisimoto, rmf, smsp, hytech or mugen.

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

If you want more bang for your buck and you have a $700 budget limit to spend then I'd suggest this!!! can be found on Ebay!!!





On the real....jus get CAI, headers , full CATBACK, HID...the usuals that everyone gets before they get to that level of going all out!!!

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

sucks you don't wanna convert to 5 speed. it'll be some easy power


someone on here did a dyno comparison between an auto and manual tranny, and gained like ~40hp/tq doing the conversion.

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

if this dosent convince you then go find a manual prelude and drive it or have someone else show u how its done. then compare it to ur automatic. that should be enough to make up your mind.

you're probably resistant because you'd rather have something aftermarket to show off to your buddies. trust me bro. its the best bolt on you can do right now to add the most hp/tq and if you must have the aftermarket flash then put a staged clutch in there. i've driven a 01 lude with the tiptronic automatic and even when shifting its NOTHING like a manual and i think it only had 4 gears... boring!

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

Guys, I hate to defend a noob but he did say in his first post that he was going to do a 5 speed swap. At least I think he said that. Can't really tell do to his lack of punctuation.

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

yeah but he's asking what he can do with his 700 bedises the 5 sp. swap and we're trying to convince him that the 5sp swap would get him the most bang for the buck and should be done first.

I told him to save his money for the swap. I was just saying, he said he is going to do it, so, no need to try to convince him.

you dont have to spend $800 on a header to see significant gains. the thing with N/A is its all gradual and slowly over time adding exhaust, intake, cams, pistons, rods, etc will give you power as with turboing a car its all at once.

just a couple things about that. the only header i know of that doesnt cost that much that still makes power is the hytech replica. everything else is 800+ and what if you build your engine all at once? that doesnt make n/a gradual. that just makes your build gradual

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

5spd swap. Enough said. And like said before, $350 for a HyTech Replica is probably the best bang for your buck bolt-on.

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

for $700 youre not gonna build a faster auto (trust me i have an auto) however i look at my car like this, i might not be faster than somebody but i can outdrive them. suspension is a GREAT place to gain actual PERFORMANCE. however, when deciding on coilovers spend the extra money to get dampening control. TEIN SS coilover are like $1100. if youre not concearned with the adjustable damper, the basics are $800. but if you live in an area with crappy roads its not a very enjoyable ride. its not awful, but could def be better. now if you live in a city with good roads and the basics are good enough for you, pick em up. with my basics the car handles like a dream. so i can go faster through turns. then you could always throw on a test pipe instead of a cat, a straight through exhaust with a N1 muffler. i dont like the sound, but you can feel the difference. so in summary i rank my personal suggestion for all around performance in this order

$1100 TEIN SS coilovers
$800 TEIN Basics
$250 AEM v2
$200 test pipe/custom exhaust/N1 muffler

also dont dismiss actual maintenance. spark plugs, wires, tranny flush, rad flush.

Re: 97 Prelude Bolt On Help

if i were you, i wouldnt buy anything to make the engine more powerful! those automatic trannys are garbage! if the automatics can barely hold the "stock" power if you hook up the engine your just shortening the life of the tranny and basically forcing yourself to HAVE to change it over to a 5 speed. i just changed mine over to a 5 speed it made it waaaaaay quicker, dependable, better mpg, funner to drive, and just way beastlier! hhahaha and besides you dont need no ecu tellin you when to shift. shift when you want! i guarentee you if you hook up the motor your gonna be makin another thread titled " automatic tranny problems" . it cost me about 7 bills to change it over by piecing it together and it only took about a day and a case or 2 of beer and a couple buddies
