Re: What can i do to improve performance? (newbie)

Well let me be the one to answer your question.

People usually get the basics
Cold Air intake
2.5" Exaust with a twin loop muffler (not too big)
Headers (or extractors) usually 4-2-1
Adjustable suspension - you can go coilovers or fully adjustable which includes the shock (recommended for good results but expensive)
Strutbraces
upgrade brake pads to a performance pad
Get an aftermarket chip and dynotune it.

This is the basics but it would be nice if you'd have a H22A.


As for the rest.... OMG that van is UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup. In JDM and EDM-Land, some models are 4 lug and have an F-series in them.

Yah, we said that at the beginning of the thread and the OP never answered. So that's why we blew the thread up with ridiculous sh*t. He still hasn't answered any questions, I think he forgot he ever posted a topic.
