what do you think?

So my 01 prelude is completely stock right now and i was thinking of getting the I/H/E set up with an Aem V2, a Tanabe Super Medalion Racing cat-back, and i'm still unsure about the header. First of all, what header would you recommend. Secondly, Do you guys think that it is even worth it. Will i get any substantial power gains from a set up like that. I don't want to spend over $1000 for like 4 horsepower.

You'll see gains with that setup, and even more with a VAFC/AFC Neo tune. A piggyback is probably all you need for a basic breathing mod setup.

I've seen cars with that kind of setup make 115-125kW at the wheels (around 160fwhph) with a good tune, so a decent increase of 15-25%. Whether or not it's worth it is up to you. My car has just an intake, and I've driven a friend's car with I/H/E and as far as I'm concerned, I just can't wait to get my H/E/tune done!

The problem with the H22 is that it's already at pretty well optimum tune, which is why the usual mods people perform on most NA 4 bangers don't really do much.

However spending the same $$ on similar mods on say a S14 turbo will net you a far bigger increase. So like I said, as to whether or not it's worth it is up to you.

aem v2 is the best performance you can get from an intake but personally the cost to benefit ratio isnt worth it. i would go with an ebayish intake or at least one that you arent buying the name. imo tanabe makes great exhaust but it seems like they wear out and get leaks quicker then some others. basically i would just go for whatever sounds the best. all performance exhausts should be near each other as far as hp and tq. as for headers i would suggest megan racing. i just bought one but havent installed it yet. i only hear good things about them and they are pretty inexpensive. hope i helped. i have a greddy evo2, megan header, and ebay piping with aem filter for my intake. this all was probably $700ish and i am very pleased with it
