Spark Plugs - NGK Iridiums can't be beaten.

Cold air intake? Well there's always been a debate there, lots of people go with the AEM V2, but Blake (98VTEC) is an H-series motor guru and he did some dyno testing which showed that the stock airbox with a K&N drop-in filter provided more of a gain than anything else. If you want the bling factor though, go with the AEM V2.

As far as body kits go, I'm not a fan of them and never have been so I can't help you there. I like simple (i.e. tasteful) lip kits.

Re: hey guys new to honda need help

For the intake I would recommend the PRM intake. It has a good review here on this site. It looks great. It would set you apart from most bolt-ons. Down side: expensive.

Re: hey guys new to honda need help

Intakes are mostly all the same....like mentioned before I'm not much of a fan of body kits on our 4th gens. The original body looks good on the aesthetics, I would look into a nice lip kit. As far as power if your keeping that H23 then boost is her best friend, theres a bunch of members on here that have experience in that department. Look around the F/I section and have fun. Welcome to preludezone and good luck with your build

Re: hey guys new to honda need help

When it comes to boost, before you buy anything you should research and learn as much as possible. Then learn it again. Don't even worry about buying **** for at least a year.

Re: hey guys new to honda need help

TurboByGarrett.com - Turbo Tech101 - Read everything there.

http://home.comcast.net/~ndd3d/TurboInstall.pdf - That will give you a generic idea of what a turbo install on a Honda is like

-->COMPLETE How-To:: Turbocharge Your Honda // Rep-ing Hypnotik Speed - Honda-Tech - Some good stuff there, fills in some blanks.

That's what I started with (thanks to Neck for providing me with the links).
