Should I add performance mods to an AT car?
I have a 1984 Prelude (bhp on this thing is 100@5500 = sad, but nice for
'84), and was wondering if I should add some performance mods to it. I'll
have it for quite a while (my first car), and would like to get as much out
of it as I can. But... It's an automatic... :(
Think I should?
I think you should use the intro section first...always nice to introduce yaself! :thumbs:
1) Yes introduce yourself
2) I have a AT Camry and if I could I would most certainly supe it up... why not? It is what you got and if you want to have fun with it.... do something...
do it, you have nothing to lose. just add bolt-ons, not sure if that engine can handle f/i tho.
Preludes are pretty sporty lookin cars... do it...
Alright, so, I'm gonna try to do as much to it as I can. First off - won't be performance - but I'll light up the Prelude lettering in the rear between the two reverse lights. Found instructions on preludepower.com (as well as many other sites). Maybe I'll even take out the rear seats (very highly doubt that, as I carry many people, obviously, for a teen). I'll be looking into a new air box, though I don't know much about it. Hell, I don't know much about modifications... Meh.
Get neon, lower it, get some tight rear lights... etc... AND BE SURE NOT TO PUT A SPOILER... THOSE LOOK STUPID ON PRELUDES...
Definately no spoiler. Even the smaller ones look pretty dumb. Neons, dropping it, and getting lights... Sounds a little ricey. But, I planned on the rear lights (as well as lighting up the rear Prelude lettering) and all-red rear lights. Lowering... I dunno. It's pretty damn low...
i thought every one drove trucks and beat up GM cars in ID.
look for parts you can swap from late 80s and early 90s preludes
Nope. There's more Imports here than Domestics. Damn proud of it too. :D I grew up in souther California, so, living up here isn't the same; but it'll do for now. There's actually quite a few street racers up here. Pretty glad to have found that out.
well two performance mods you could conssider is a tranny switch or drop a
new engine in
although theyre both a lot of work
