Icon5 I don't know what to do first. Suggestions?

Anybody know what would be the smartest thing to do first to my 1999 SH Prelude. I'm not rich or anything but i want to do something but its too hard to choose. I want to change the cams but i dont know which ones are the best (Brian Crow. or Skunk2) but if i change the Cams i might as well change the springs, stems retainers and gears. Or i could but forged piston rods but also if i change rods i might as well bore it out and thats an arm and a leg. Any Suggestions?

Re: I don't know what to do first. Suggestions?

It all depends on your overall goal for power, if you want to race and hammer on the engine then valves and springs would be the best choice if you wish to do the cams but do keep in mind the order of operations or install to do your pistons, rods, and other block related parts you would need to remove the head which contain your cams,valves and other valve train parts so if you were planning on doing the work yourself then I would start with the block but ultimately I would be much easier to do it all at once not to mention cheaper if your having a shop do it. On a second note try to keep in mind doing one or the other will only hurt the one that you don't do its like buying a MSD ignition kit but not upgrading fuel or air intake it would be pointless. Just my opinion good luck with your build.

Steps 1-10 should just just be RESEARCH!!!!

Then once you have an idea what you wanna do, come back and ask specific questions.
