New 01 prelude and New to the Prelude world. Suggestions

Whats up guys, im currently in the process of purchasing an 01 Prelude that has a beautifully done body kit, carbon fiber hood, fat spoiler, etc... 84k miles. (will post pics soon) but under the hood it is 95% stock with the exception of an intake. what are some ideas to get more power and performance out of a lude, as i am pretty unfamiliar with asian built cars ( BMWs are my thing). what should i put in to get her goin and make her a beast, that are fairly cost effective, im lookin to build her up( supercharger is a bit out of my range seeing as the accompanying work adds up when going that route) anyway, any help would be grait as i am a prelude noob haha. thanks
CONMAN

Welcome to PZ.
If the intake that's on there is good then keep it.
You can get hytech replica headers, a high flow cat, and a catback exhaust to add a little hp.
How much power are you wanting to push?
If you're planning on doing some serious mods then I'd recommend upgrading the suspension (anything that has to do with handling). It's always better to get that done first.

Re: New 01 prelude and New to the Prelude world. Suggestions

Thanks for making me feel welcome! haha. My good friend and i will be building/working on the prelude (once i buy it) and the first upgrade i planned on putting on before i go to school was just a simple muffler/tip combo (HKS carbon ti muffler) and just little things like smoking the rear tails, and tinting the front windows 35% visibility. As far as performance upgrades, the majority of those will take place NEXT summer, but i am starting to gather information and insight as to what those mods should be. Any help is greatly appreciated.. CONMAN

Re: New 01 prelude and New to the Prelude world. Suggestions

Welcome to the world of Honda. Glad you're looking at preludes. Best advice is to fix what's wrong with it. It's a 10 year old car, unless the owner has a classic car collection, it's a hard call to make on how nice the car has been treated. As general rule, if a car is older than 5 years, service records or no deal. If you like the price, then it's your call.

Pics or permabanned, LOL (we kinky about preludes)

Re: New 01 prelude and New to the Prelude world. Suggestions

Im back, sorry guys i havnt had internet and the site was down yesterday! I want to get as much hp as i can without going turbo, driving it till it dies, and then dropping a new engin in her. I will be going to pick her up on sunday, and pictures will be posted accordingly. BUT, i know before going off to school i will be putting on an HKS carbon ti muffler, smoking out the heads and tail lights, aand possibly tinting the front windows. as far as performance, the intake is solid, just gonna put a new filter on it, but what else should i consider after these mods?
