Depends on the route you want to go with the car. I think the car in stock form is actually very good. If you have any maintenance items to take care of I would do that first. If not I suppose you could start with basic cosmetic items like window visors or a front lip. If you want to lower the car you could start looking at some suspension upgrades.
Yes I agree. The car is great how it is. Authentic power from the v-tech. Strong pull. I'm not into the loud exhaust too much, although a small upgrade from stock is ideal. Lowering the car is on my list of something I would like to do. Recommendations on that? As far as a route to go.
Personally I would get a FlashPro and get a tune on it. You can make about 30 more hp and have vtech engage at about 4300rpm. And you can get rid of the rev hang and make it feel more like a normal manual.
Shifter aftermarket base and cable bushings. Makes it nicer for daily driving. Cheap and fast. 2nd for flashpro once you start any bolt ons. Quality coilovers to start you out on suspension upgrades then do lighter, wider (8") wheels to match.
I've watched a lot of videos on the skunk2 alpha headers and diff cat exhaust, I think it might be a little louder than I'm wanting. Although I want a header and exhaust for the gains. Even if they are minimal
how about this, when its time for tires remove & weigh 1 wheel & tire.Go to Tire rack website pick some lighter wheels & tires you like (maybe plus 1 size) Tire Rack will mount ,road balance check run out ship to you ready to mount. As Honda wheels are sometimes heavy you might like Enkei like an RPF1 you could save maybe 7-9 lbs a corner, thats unsprung wt. that also doesn't have to be flylwheel spun up.no effect on reliability,& for that little more you have spare wheel set for sno or whatever. no arguing w/ bonehead tire sales man or jerks scarring wheels. If you sell the car you can keep the wheels as Honda has 5/ 114 pattern.that is most common.
I appreciate the feedback that you did give me about the car I meant that as a general question to everybody but yeah I'm looking into some different Wheels right now I'm in the basic steps another guy earlier in the post recommended changing the bushings so I've ordered those can actually receive them today and plan on putting them in tomorrow here in Ohio it's snowing in 30 degrees tomorrow at supposed to be 50 and sunny
