should I buy it?

my friend from football drives a 98 sh prelude with 180k on it. He cares about the car a lot and he said he bought it from his brothers friend who also took good care of it. It has a aftermarket air intake, headers, and muffler. Im wondering if I should by it. Also how much would you pay for it.

I would probably pay 3500 MAX depending on condition. Having an aftermarket intake, header and muffler doesn't necessarily mean it's worth more in the selling market.

greddy emanage ultimate can be used to tune a 5th gen SH......... as long as someone isn't planning a full turbo or high HP NA build, there is nothing wrong with an SH.



it's fine that you love your base, I love mine too, but don't bash the SH

I've been looking to engine management for a SH and I think AEM has something too. I haven't heard anything about the Greddy, does anyone have any hands on experience with one?

I also noticed that on their site it says 97-99, I own a 01. As far as I know there isn't any difference but I could be wrong.

The AEM one they sell for 97-00, again nothing for an 01.
