Next Mod for Turbo Prelude? Intake Manifold?

Hey Guys,

Just looking for some advice on what the best bang for my buck mod should be. I have 300$ credit for parts at my local shop and I'm trying to figure out where that would best be spent with the setup I have now (listed below). I was thinking intake manifold (skunk2 or blacktrax if he can get it), with hondata gasket and im spacer(I can cover the extra 100$ or so difference). I did research and get mixed opinions on whether the skunk2 im is worth it or not. Really looking for low and mid range bump being that this is a street car. Better sound from the im would be cool too. Mixed reviews regarding bigger throttle body as well. Any ideas? I know it would be best to get throttle body and im together, but that is not an option now $ On another note, I will be getting a dyno tune in a week or so and would like to have the parts on by then.

2000 Prelude

Jdm 92-95 motor
rev hard turbo kit 7 psi (will be tuned in a week or so w/ p75 chipped)
550cc saturated injectors
custom 3' exhaust
comp clutch stg 3
lightened flywheel act streetlite

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Yeah man, I would definitely go with the Skunk2 IM. Just make sure you don't get a knockoff.

Re: Next Mod for Turbo Prelude? Intake Manifold?

team 83rd is CORRECT... i made 21 more horsepower w/ the skunk2 intake manifold. as far as throttle body ... go w/ a 70 mm skunk2 throttle body.

Re: Next Mod for Turbo Prelude? Intake Manifold?

I don't know why anyone hasn't modd out the stock intake mani yet.I have takien the stock ones apart and they are pretty big inside would make a good turbo intake manifold, i was thinking of taking out the butterfly valves and boring it out. Also i'm pretty sure you can just have a machine shop bore out your current throttle body, my friend had this done last week. The guy said it wouldn't do much for performance unless you port matched the intake manifold to the throttle bodies new size tho not sure if thats true.

Re: Next Mod for Turbo Prelude? Intake Manifold?

I have heard that as well, seems like solid info to me and makes sense. Buying one without the other would not make a huge difference, neither would it hurt to put one on without the other. I figured now that I have spent the bulk of my loot on turbo and a jdm engine plus install and other extras, I will have to piece together my wants in smaller stages. Get the mani now and the heat shield, throttle body next, etc... Good advice, thank you.

Yeah you can go to a machinery shop and have them do your throttle body, I think it only adds like 7 hp? But its worth it.

What he said. Keep the motor stock, get a body kit, some 18's, some lambo doors, and you'll be set.

Re: Next Mod for Turbo Prelude? Intake Manifold?

We need more info here, you could be confusing your engine having a bad head gasket with having a spun bearing. I guess if it is sucking in coolant and oil then it could sound loud like that.
