Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

As a new prelude owner i was wondering, out of all the mods you guys have done, whats your favorite?
When you look at your ride what comes to mind first? What makes you say "Man i'm glad i did that cause that's what makes it all worth it."?
On the other side of that coin, what do you regret doing or had done? For instance you thought having 3 spoilers on your ride would be cool and futuristic but when you saw it you thought "Man was i high when i thought that was a good idea?".

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

I don't really have a single favourite mod - I like them all for different reasons. The kit looks tough but subtle, the Type R rims compliment it nicely, the stereo added much pleasure to the driving experience, the window visors make it possible to have the windows open in the rain (and at high speeds) while all the extra JDM cf dress up parts match the cf interior parts so thoughtfully fitted at the factory.

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

I definitely don't have a favorite mod either.. usually my most recent mod is my favorite, so for this I will have to say getting the 5 switch older and wiring the US switch to my jdm fogs, that was the most recent thing I did. I got my dimmer switch back :D

Anyways I gotta say one of my favorite mods is my BBK of course! Right now I have to say I'm not feeling so happy with my p28 from phearable, I don't feel they set it up right...

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

yeah my fuction & form coils have to be one of my favorite.

but even tho I like all my mods, my least favorite would probably be the hytech replica header. It hangs too damn low so i cant have my car slammed like i had it before. It makes great power though and best header out there for what its worth.

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

It's hard to say what is my #1 favorite mod, my top 3 are: blue top valve cover, CF hood, & shaved rear. My least favorite might by my cat-back (WS2). I just really don't like how the mid pipe sits so low, in the winter (frost heaves) I scrape it all the time.

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

Least- the mangled fender, hood, and frame from a Truck hitting and totalling it.
before that, my test pipe lol

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

Nice stuff keep em coming guys!

I'm planning on adding some heated mirrors, going turbo but i don't want to lose the atts, so not too much turbo. Maybe beef up the suspension a little bit to go with the extra hp, and then just make it Black.
I love hearing other peoples wins.

Re: Whats your favorite/least favorit mod?

My fav mod on any car is upgrading the suspension from springs/struts/bushings it is one of the best investments you can make.

Second favorite is a good set of tires that like to grip the road.

Third for me is weight reduction, at least when it comes to a car that I won't be driving daily, I always start out by pulling the power steering out. It saves weight and makes the engine not work as hard to make power. It won't make a major difference in power but ever little bit adds up eventually... plus it is free... but you wouldn't want to do this to a car that you will resale in the future.

My least fav mod... I don't have one... I am not going to do anything to my car that I will regret.
