i think it would be a good idea.
now don't go and do all that gay shit to it like a shit can tail pipe or a wing that puts more weight then deflect air.

for long term you could rebuild the engine, replace the trans(new, used or rebuilt urs) probly get new seats (don't have to be those "racing" ones, just like new factory seats), new paint, maybe a turbo for power.

New paint job, exhaust and rims making a car good to go is the ricer way of thinking. Exhaust systems really dont help much, until you get high in power where the exhaust output would be hindered by small exhaust. 5 inch exhaust isnt need on any car. So I say

Engine Swap
Engine Rebuild
Turbo no high boost
Suspension
Performance transmission parts (clutch, flywheel, etc.)
Brakes/ Cross-drilled rotors
High Octane Fuel
Performance exhaust (fart cans are not performance exhausts, like 3" here people)
Paint job if needed

Run the exhaust off the headers but then it would lose back pressure

Your book is wrong. Sorry, but you're stepping on a pet peeve of mine: kids that think that if it doesn't make it go significantly faster, it's stupid and rice. Rice is making a car look like a race car when it isn't. but cosmetic mods in and of themselves are NOT RICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you saying that a '50 Merc with rounded hood and door corners, mild chop, '53 buick side trim, '55 DeSoto Grille, '57 Kaiser taillights, lowered to the ground with Oldsmobile hubcaps is rice? It's a traditional '50s custom! Just because someoe want's to customize a modern car doesn't make it Rice!

My '63 Comet is getting custom paint, shaved trim, a '60 falcon nose with custom grille, custom taillights, polished 17" wheels, and lowered on air bags. And it's not rice at all.

How about the Bug in my sig? Stock engine, with chrome on it, custom paint, lowered on chrome wheels. None of the mods make it faster, so you're saing it's rice?????



if you don't want to do anything to your own car to make it look better to you, fine. But don't even THINK of insulting those that do. That's no better than Jay-G and his retarded insults of cars that HE does't like.

No thats a really nice combination. I was talking about more modern cars that you see catback systems on and the wheels kinda tied in with the exhaust etc...
