Icon6 :::Ella::: 1993 Si

Hey guys. I finally decided to do this...

I just got this Prelude approximately a month ago, so I haven't really gotten the chance to do it up yet and make 'er pretty so don't be so harsh...

Haha. I drove all the way from Macon, Georgia to Jacksonville, Florida to get 'er; but I believe I got a really good deal on what the car came with (paid $2000) and am hoping to spend more on her to make her look her best.

Her name is Snoflake and she was originally a red automatic Si. I bought her with the swapped H23a motor and transmission to a manual. Here's more info and down below, some of the future plans I have in mind.

**Sorry about the bad quality photos. I accidentally saved them all as .bmp when resizing them instead of .png. I'll have better ones soon.






I spy Mista Setra Sheep.^













Mr. Polar Bear.

Exterior:
  • Approx. one year old white paint (originally milano red from factory).
  • Stock body, lips, lights, etc.
  • A'pexi exhaust/muffler.

Interior:
  • All stock.
  • Polar Bear and Setra sheep riding along. :D

Engine:
  • 2.3L H23A & 5 speed swap. (used to be a stock automatic)
  • took out cruise control, EGR valve.
  • Everything else, stock... for now.

Suspenion:
  • All stock suspension. (used to have cheap springs from eBay on her).

ICE:
  • Pioneer deck.
  • All original speakers.

Future Mods (when I get friggin' paper):

Cosmetic:
  • painting valve cover purple or pink.
  • JDM black housing headlights.
  • new glass driver and passenger windows, and it needs a new windshield.
  • a better sound system.
  • hoping to do a cluster conversion, looking like a 96's cluster, and a console conversion so I can have a friggin' cup holder.
  • This is goin to be last: gonna put a new back bumper cover for it, some bondo on the huge dent in the left rear pillar and hopefully get some of the minor dings out of it, and paint the whole body white all over again (engine bay, insides of the sunroof, etc.)
  • OEM rims back on:
Performance:
  • Brett (as some of you may know) is doing work to the engine. It's run codes on the computer, and all that technical blah and he's helping to make it near perfect. There's some work to be done in the engine that he knows about and I can't really put into words since I'm not mechanically educated on that stuff. Ha.
  • hopefully gonna replace the manifold with headers, new radiator, new spark plugs and wires, etc etc etc.
  • Tien springs.
  • AEM intake.

That's really all I can think of right now. I'll add more updates if any mods get put on it, or if I have any more future mods I want to add on her.

Thanks for looking. If you guys have any comments or suggestions, feel free to tell me.

Well, I mean. I don't really like the rims. When I first saw the car, it resembled Mustang wheels. I don't know. I guess it's because of the whole five spoke look. I'm looking to sell them soon..

Yeah. They have little damage (curbrashed) on the two front rims.. If I keep them I'm hoping to make them have a polished look.

Man, I don't know all the name for them...

I tried to look for some pictures. Here:

This is what I want it to look like (ignore the gauges):


This is what it looks like now (except it has the lights for an automatic):


Get it?
