Type R badge

Well the time has come to get some more power out of my integra, after saving for many months I've finally decided to buy a Type R badge for my car. I found a great deal in japan the other day and I'm going to import it over night from there, I can't wait!

Anyway my question is where to mount the badge? I heard mounting it in different places yeilds different power gains, someone told me that the closer to the engine you put it the more power you get, so I'm thinking of mounting it in the middle of my bonnet.

Would this be a wise choice? What are your suggestions?

Oh and don't worry about traction, I plan to get a drift wing soon.
























PS. I am ofcourse joking, don't take this serious I'm just bored.

I heard that too, just put the badge over the Honda badge, it'll add weight for traction, and it's one of the best places for power...But if you're willing to get another one, you could put it on the trunk, and you've got an AWD Integra

Don't you guys know anything? You have to get the cheap stickers so you can just stick them all over the car. I knew a guy that stuck like 30 of them on his hood and instantly got 743 hp. You can even stick them on your wheels and instantly get more traction. Stickers are the why to go IMO.

Actually, I think it would look best here:




It'll improve aerodynamics, and handling there, and braking improve

If you put it half on your hood and half on driver side fender, thats where you get the most gains. I was thinking about doing that to my T/A as well.

True, IIRC, the larger the sticker the more power it gives. For example, the Screaming Chicken hood decal the Trans Am had was worth 75 of it's horsepower at full throttle.

Dude what are you thinking.
TypeR is so yesterday.
Get like a Giant Sticker that says your cars name.
Like Cavalier in big whtie letters and put it that top of the windshield.
I saw some Cavalier rolling like that the other day.
If you want to get serious get an under body kit at night it will look like a ufo and be almost as fast. My friend probe got a 100hp gain out of under glows alone not to mention all the extra traction

Plus those crazy hand painted brake calipers.... that increases your stopping power. Geez you guys always thing about power and speed, never thinking about handling performance...

actually, it is not widely known, but it adds even more hp if you misspell the name of the car. such is the case of the "bad ass camero" i saw the other day... giant letters on the back window...

Haha thanks guys, I'm getting window wiper spoilers as well, more traction will help. Good to see chrisV getting into it.

Got the high performance seat covers and battery covers to boot? They can give some serious power

You're so dumb. Handling and braking are completely different things.

NOW FOR HANDLING, cutting the springs yield the best handling.

What about heating them to lower it
