Maybe we need an under the hood section?

Didn't know where to put this,

[IMG][/IMG]

Need to slow down a little bit, just wrapped the wheels with michelin primacy mxv4s and a lifetime alignment new tie rod ends.

Next list will be the Tein Flex coilovers

replica Mugen front, rear and sides and rear wing.

Finally going to have the look I always wanted.

Then it will be off to the engine, total rebuild even thought about having the motor built by these guys King Motorsports Unlimited, Inc.

You have to understand this was and still is my dream car.

Nice!!! I agree with making an engine bay shots section!

Where did you get them! And how much?

Ebay, $19..

Yeah I hear these Mugen power adders are great I heard these socks add about 4 HP,

The pedals I got added 5HP

No but seriously yeah a nice "Under the Hood" section would be great.

Plus since I am about to dump 8K under the hood. Maybe more, they boast 300 HP (on pump gas) all motor on the street performance build. With that I am sure I'll need to upgrade the tranny and half shafts.

Re: Maybe we need an under the hood section?

I hope to god you plan on taking those off once and awhile and washing them. I can't tell you how often I see a car (fully stock) pull into my dealership and have dirty ass ones under the hood.

Yeah, usually they will only go on during dry weather, right now will not be a good time. But I usually pay about $80 a year in the Spring to have the engine bay cleaned out professionally, I'm a big person on checking for leaks, had a big one not too long ago with the oil cooler o ring.

No problem, yeah I know what you mean. I bought this car off a girl here in VA. It had a fart can muffler on it well it passed inspections for like two years. I hated going home from work on Friday nights cause all the teen agers were out on the cruising strip and I have to pass by there on the way home, so when they heard my exhaust all they wanted to do is race. They were always civics too

But yeah I pamper my Prelude.

p.s. I got rid of the fart can now I'm back to stock besides the CAT and header ;)

I really need to start thinking about a wire tuck job, plus finish my new underhood theme. I'm still thinking about one.

Re: Maybe we need an under the hood section?

Thanks, this is actually dirty to my standards.

I still need to pressure wash under the car from the residual oil that came from the oil cooler o ring leak.
