http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Prelud...bb94f9&vxp=mtr

Hows does this look?


Or should something like this be ok...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-PRELUD...4ac763&vxp=mtr


Mainly just looking for a little more power.. Still going to be a daily driven car. Nothing that needs to be 400HP though.

Stay off eBay before you blow it up.

Yeahh let's blow it up!! Nah come on guys. Atleast view the links before seeing the 'ebay' in the URL and assuming they're junk. The first one is actually a good kit I believe, just priced a bit high. the second one is... well probably junk.. but I could just replace the turbo and wastegate and be ok boosting ~7psi

Its the manifold that's the problem in that kit, not just the turbo and wastegate
