my first prelude!!! advice?

I just bought my first prelude a few months ago (yes!!) and have just finished replacing a few parts to prevent any problems from the get go, timing belt, water pump, plugs and wires etc. Now Im looking to start upgrading. Ive already installed a cold air intake, Im just looking to get started doing the most beneficial things I can do for cheap i.e. not looking to spend more than $150-$200 dollars per part. Advice?

fixed 2 things from his list. no need to use msd ignition. oem is more than enough unless you have HUGE amounts of power, or just want it for bling. also, look into the tri-y header group buys on here and other prelude forums for a good header that already has a 2.5'' collector. there is alot you can do like he said, you have intake done, so from there id look into header and exhaust. then work on things that help you turn. ie. suspension/tires. then move on to stopping. but limiting yourself to 150-200 per part is going to put a BIG kink in your hose, ludes are expensive. the knock off header is around 300, exhaust is anywhere from 250-1000+. i paid right around a grand for mine, but it was 100% custom, and i bought parts i didnt need before hand, like a 2.25" rt high flow cat a month prior to my 3" exhaust set up...whoops!

you did good by getting all the maintenance out of the way before modding your car. BIG UPS for that.

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

eBay turbo. hehehe

Start with the simple things that don't require tuning on your car. If your going to change your header, you'll prob do a full catback exhaust too and a decent one costs around $400+

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

I want to do the collector mod, but I can't weld :/ Anyone think a shop would know how to do it when I get my new exhaust on my DC ceramic 4-2-1?

not trying to thread jack, just a simple yes/no answer will suffice

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

Glad to hear you're enjoying the car. As biglegs said, props for doing maintenance first lot of guys just wanna make it flashy. Saw an IS the other day with a 40 day sticker, wheels still clean enough to resell as new and a puddle of antifreeze underneath lol.

The more I read about the Hytech replica header the more I think it is worth while. That may be a good place to start. Also, if you are a pretty handy person, make sure the valves are properly adjusted. Something that can instantly boost power if not. I saw a great how to on YouTube.

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

honestly the easiest thing to do for more power is weight reduction. and its free. it won't give you much noticeable power change, but the lighter the car, the better

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

Ignition....wires,coil,and box.... does more then bling. Rev limiter and smooth things out. Just cause stock ignition can handle up to 300 hp still doesn't mean its the best thing to run.
Headers... obx sounds like its your price range... 2.5 collector... I do them. You ship me your downpipe... I will bypass the cat with 2.5 inch steel pipe with either an open end or flange to the exhaust. 100- is what I charge includes parts and make a difference....way cheaper then tri- y or hytech....which is way more then he wants to spend. Just look at cars I built....this stuff does work. Otherwise I wouldn't have a good rep with all the ny luders. Just trying to save you some money. Not argue.

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

im not arguing either, just pointed unneeded items like the ignition. you priced those right? way over his 150 mark there, and not needed since he just got wires and plugs. i would never run obx on my car, but thats me. they are proven to gain not much more than the oem header, even with a 2.5 collector. the price of the obx header, then you charge 100 on top, id just go with a tri-y replica for 300 which has dyno proven gains. its not that much more, and proven.

Yea I wanted her to be running sound before I did anything major. I actually did the auto to manual tensioner swap also and am replacing the distributor now. Im trying to save money up for the big boosters thats why Im not trying to spend big amounts for now. Good things come to those who wait, Im just excited so I want to do a few small fry things.

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

he just bought wires, so they arent needed, let alone msd which also have been proven to not help. OEM or NGK and be done.

add up the ignition bundle almost 300 dollars that he doesnt need to spend.

dont know where you can find a real Hy Tech for 600, but they go for 1200 new.

obx header-150+100 for you to mod it=250 save the extra 50 bucks and buy a replica, hands down the best header for the money, and proven.

look up any dc sports with 2.5 collector dyno and there it is. its the same header as a dc sports header, just lesser quality and different name...basically a polished or ceramic coated oem copy. obx, megan, and dc sports are not going to get you much power over the stock header. might as well just do the collector mod on the stock piece.

DC sport headers are crap. OBX headers are not the same as DC
DC= same as stock header

Someone is getting double teamed lol.

But i agree with biglegs, go for the hytech replica not some OBX header save up and do it right the first time. I wouldn't be looking for cheap mods for your prelude or you will regret it.

Re: my first prelude!!! advice?

lmao, sure bud. OBX is junk.

if you want your prelude to sound like a raspy fart canned car, do what he is telling you. removing the cat, using cheap headers is going to make your car sound like ****. period.

OBX is junk, they dont even line up proper to the exhaust ports. OBX=DC=MEGAN they are all the same. different names, but same size piping and same dimensions.

So you are saying the OBX is better than a hytech replica header? I dont get your point here, unless you have any dino charts proving the obx header can add 10whp untuned then why are you trying to tell him to use this header rather than a hytech replica header?

I never said that you had said that, I was just asking you if that is what you thought. And since we now know that it is not what you think, right? Then why are you telling this guy to buy an obsolete header?

To the OP save up a couple hundred more and get a hytech replica 10whp untuned is no joke, its worth it.

There ya go OP, get a replica of the best header, or get something you can "feel the difference with" that almost costs as much... Your choice.
