Question and opinions!

First question, My e brake was very loose, for a while, didn't know the problem, but the e brake light would come on at times, randomly, but mostly during when i was just regularly breaking. Today I went into my E brake under my console and tightened it up a bit, now it almost always ( sometimes turns off) Says that my e brake is on. Anyone have an answer? Also, My DRL Light is on, how can I fix that?


For opinions.
Is "Megan" a good brand? I was thinking of getting headers from them.
Another thing, is a whole exhaust system worth it? Does it do much? And what is a good sounding, Lower exhaust, (greddy, skunk2, etc)

And for something like upgrades, what can give me some more power, which isn't too expensive?

Thanks :)

well, if you get FULL custom exhaust (header + rest), its worth it.
it cost more of course but brings more gains.

if you get some megan/dc or other header + some catback your gains would be something like 5hp so not noticiable. doesnt do that much as custom piping. H22 doesnt response well to bolt ons, oem header arent that bad and aftermarket headers arent that good...what I noticed was that car runs little bit smoother (specially in low rpms) with them. and they weight less. so theres couple + things.

I have skunk2 cat-back and I like it. But if youre not modding your car more Or your old exhaust is still intact those will be pointless "upgrades".

there are none

if you change one thing you have to change two others as well. the motor is "wholeness" where everything effects on everything.
cant do really small budget upgrades, you have to look the bigger picture.

but if you like to "upgrade" something heres my advice
Type S intake (with K&N filter) 260 $
Your choice cat-back 500 $
Good coilovers 1100 $

gains would be minimal, but those make your car more fun to drive (isnt this the main thing anyway?)
and remember that you can mod prelude base model more than SH

I've heard the same. Could someone clarify for me?

I remember reading in the manual that it could mean a couple things, I think it was either low brake fluid or pads. I'm not completely sure but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
