Cool What should be next?

Well, I've installed an AEM V2 and have Borla dual exhaust on the way. Does anyone have any other recommendations on what else I could do to improve performance without voiding the warranty? Maybe new plugs and wires, etc?

Thanks in advance

we don't even need to change the plug.. we already have denso ik20 i think..

1. do suspension and brake - drop, sway, struct, better tire, BBK
2. do i.c.e - sound system, hu, dvd+tv, carpc
3. do show - lambo door, body kit, 18"+ wheel, blackhousing, tint taillight
4. do small stuffs - shift knobs, e-brake, pedals, sills, doom light, many many many more...
5. do ext lightening - hid, projector retrofit, sidemarker



hahaa.. just read it again and he is asking for performance stuffs.... hmm.. then nothing much unless u go custom downpipe...

without voiding the warrenty? Not much. Intake, exaust, and 91octane fuel are the most things for performance a person can do before the dealership starts giving you trouble. Sways and springs are an option also.

you mean to tell me that if you had a car with a 500 exhaust system 250 intake. You wouldn't spend 400 on an alarm?? Apparently this guy is going to fork out more money on mods so thats well over a grand already and you'd back it with factory alarm?

I'd get an alarm before going any further. Our parts ARE compatible with the sedans(except the exhaust). Theif is out there, if they are not stealing for themselves then they're selling it.

keep in mind thsoe generic alarms are probably easier to bypass than honda's immobilizer, just due to the fact that alarms are universal.

honda immobilizers only prevent the car from starting through hotwiring or using a flathead screwdriver through the ignition. I don't think factory alarm has shock sensors, so they can always just tow your car away and strip you parts else where.

You guys like to say "WTF???", well that is what going to go through you mind when you either don't see your car where it's parked or was broken into.
