Give me a list.

I'm going to be receiving $2,600 in a couple months for being in an accident a year ago. (Yay for lawsuits) I need a list of things I can do to make my engine run more power! I'm talking about engine internals and such. I still want my prelude to be a daily driver though so don't go crazy! haha. Hit me up with a list! Thanks!

maintenance.



That amount of money won't do anything for engine performance.

Re: Give me a list.

I say maintenance to make sure it won't give you any problems after that then start looking into more power if you already have everything up to date then go ahead and buy upgrades. But I agree with wing8806 if you really wanna rebuild the engine to where there's more power your gonna need more then 2,600.

Re: Give me a list.

Wing knows he's stuff. if he says you can't do it or are wasting your time then your wasting time and money.

A list? You should be the one to search some build threads on this site and others and find out for yourself...Don't just ask people to do things for you. Get a general idea of what you want to put in it then come back and get some opinions...Don't just ask for everyone to do your homework... Plenty of other people to cheat off in all these build threads.

You can probably buy a used JRSC for around $2500. A new ECU and a good tune with the left over $100? Don't think so. Not to mention making sure the engine is up to snuff, making sure you have big enough injectors if you want to make any decent power whatsoever.

TL;DR - I'm with the guy that said maintenance.

Re: Give me a list.

My whole I/h/e setup costed me $1000. And that's cause I didn't settle for cheap eBay crap besides the intake. Lol. My next thing on my list besides a 5spd swap is maybe a good size throttle body and whatnot. Then cams and valve train and a Aem ems. Gonna be a hell of a lot more than $2600. Not to mention I need a decent suspension to handle it. But that's after winter cause itll be a snow plow if I lowered it now

Re: Give me a list.

S2K seats and a weekend hooker. You've been out that money for a minute and rainy day funds are boring. Get tittays.







































But seriously, catchup on some of them intervals and keep your car roadworthy.
