Re: If I Gave You $2500 and a 2001 Prelude What would you do?

If you gave me 2500 and an 01 prelude

hmm well assuming I didn't have my current 01 prelude

I'd make sure my lude was in perfect mechanical condition and if I had any money left over I'd keep it for insurance and gas

(if I had to spend it on the car... I'd get the oem front lip if it didn't have it already, oem fogs, projector headlights, an AP1 steering wheel and maybe a good header, mugen, bisomoto etc)

ps

it's header not headers

Sorry I'm not very car inclined. So for future referance its header. But I would have pictures if she wasn't in the shop. Only bc I was re ended at a red light only after having the car for a week.

You're about 80% more likely to get in an accident within 1 month of first owning the car. I don't remember where I read that statistic, but it's stuck with me. I got in one 13 days after I first bought my Xterra.

$2000... If you wanna get rid of the A/C and really open the exhaust, the Bisomoto seems the way to go. You'll also have to convert to 1 cooling fan too so those tasks right there is about $1K. Cams will run about $600, Intake Manifold $300-$400, Port & Polish for the head will depend on the machine shop you take it to.

I'd say that'd be a decent start. Talking about it really makes me with I had $2000. Awwwwww

Re: If I Gave You $2500 and a 2001 Prelude What would you do?

Build the bottom end. Sleeves/forged rods n pistons. Then Jackson racing supercharger. And hondata s300. I think all that + labor would run ya around 3500ish. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong. On a less drastic note...u could get a stage 1/2 clutch n light wieght flywheel for some more tourque. Personally I'd spend it all on the motor...but if ur so inclined there's tons of thing u could do asthetically. Lip kits rims heads/tails,fresh paint etc. It really all depends on what u wanna do ya kno. Dif stroked for dif folks. Good luck w/ur decision n keep us posted =). Welcome to the addiction haha

I think with a budget of that amount that you should trade in your HEADERS for some HEADER

Just labor for the build I am thinking about is $3500. Parts about the same so around $7500 for the whole deal. But all motor and 300HP on pump gas, I'm down. Check out King Motorsports Unlimited, Inc.

I haven't found out yet, but I think its a swap deal they send you the build motor and take yours and your $7500. But I don't know. I have to call them to ask and I lost that d@mn email crap.

Well she is already lowered as much as it can be afforded to lower ( coilovers ), and its a five speed.

Re: If I Gave You $2500 and a 2001 Prelude What would you do?

But if I were to answer the question as it was asked. Here is what I would do

First, sell the 2001 Prelude, and take the $2500 and buy a S2000 and keep my 1997 Lude.

ha ha ha, no I guess you want us to tell you how to spend $2500. I would suggest the norm

exhaust
intake
suspension

But if you want a motor save up more and get it done right. Firm believer in you get what you pay for. As I said in my last post I'm looking into spending $7500 on just my motor.
