New prelude owner what to do what to do

Hello fellaws just recently totaled out my 07 Lex GS350 so i downgraded to the car i always wanted a 5th gen 97 prelude. Its the blue'ish silver color(not sure the exact name) wit 68,000 miles i got it from some old woman. Cars in great shape with perfect leather besides needs a a front bumper and fender besides that its mint. I dont wanna be one of those fast n furious guys just wanna make it look nice but maybe put a intake on it. Any suggestions on little mods can be done? Also anyone know where i can get real jdm stuff? I wanna get fogs but dont wanna get those cheap ones that are gonna melt with hids help! Lol

Re: New prelude owner what to do what to do

fogs and misc jdm goodies:

www.jdmland.com


paint color is crystal blue metallic


Just check around the photo threads and build threads and if you find something you like, ask a few questions and if still interested - make a purchase.


I'd get the bumper and fender fixed first - pick a good body shop, the color isn't exactly "easy" to match.


Welcome to the prelude life!

How do you downgrade to a car you always wanted ???? If it is what you always wanted, then it would be an upgrade.

Re: New prelude owner what to do what to do

i hope you didn't get the injen yet, because an ebay cai will have the same effects as the expensive name brand. if you want a legit intake that'll actually help performance, get a JDM type-s intake with a k&n filter.

Honestly - you don't need HID's in the fogs. The legit JDM ones are a glass lens and metal housing - so yes, to answer your question they would hold up better than the replica's. But not necessary at all. Get a set of retrofits and you'll never even use the fogs ;)

Only aftermarket gauges i've ever seen are white. but green would be too much lol good call staying away from those!

Ebay intake with a K&N filter or stock intake with a K&N filter BUT the best way is the type S intake. Looks stock has a mean sounds to it and looks sexy and better airflow intake. In my eyes you upgraded. If you always wanted a prelude even better

$29.95 EBAY brand-less intake will do the same thing as any short ram intake, unless the Injen is a true cold air intake that dips into the fender well. If all it does is sit by the battery and that's what you want...find the $29.95 one :P

if you live in a wet environment and youll be driving through puddles, theres a risk of hydro lock if the filter gets completely submerged. unless you have the bypass valve than you should be good.

but if you end up going with short ram, those no name ones are pretty much the same as the fancy expensive ones.

Re: New prelude owner what to do what to do

Short-ram intake tube - just put a K&N or other good filter on it, or buy the whole thing with a cheap-o filter. This is the one that sits near the battery.


Cold air intake tube - positions the filter in the fender in front of the wheel.



My first intake, I just got the SRI. Made the car sound awesome, but overall it's not as functional as some other opinions you've gotten, such as the Prelude Type-S intake.

You dont have to put HIDs in your fogs but if you decide to do so like I did for looks and function in the snow purposes then enjoy!

Jus make sure its the JDm one and not the ones that melt.

I decided to use 55W ballasts with 3000K yellow bulbs to have that more golden yellow touch!

JDM fogs
