Usually, I'm just looking, rather than commenting, but I gotta say, this car is beautiful. This generation of Prelude is definitely one of my favorite Honda models ever, and this looks especially cool. Very impressive.

Is that what you port and polish with, you think any extra power will come out of my stock motor if i ported and polished it?

Hi. No i have not bought cold air intke yet, but i think that it will come more expensive if i buy it from you than if i´ll buy it from store, cause i live in Finland and the shipping from USA to here is real expensive. And how would i pay?? But thankyou for offering.

Date: 01/04/2006
Hey. Well it´s winter here and obviously we have also LOTS OF LOTS OF snow!! :) and thatfor Prelude is standing in garage now. I´m gettin new gauges and seats and maybe a bodykit, but i think i have to order it from USA cause theres not a big range to check out here in Finland/Europe :( I wanna get some engine stuff too but it´s very expensive built a car here because of the taxes. But enough of my complaining, i hope u the best and i cant get enough of your car. :D

Date: 01/04/2006
Nice sexy Lude you got there! Watch out she's getting turbo'd! All i can say is i feel happy for you getting a turbo, Another Honda Rising!

just one advice loose the mesh grill. Although it serves a purpose keeping all those nasty thing from getting inside the engine bay. It will really look nicer if you take them off, but its all up to you man.

Nice Car! Keep it up! See my ride sometime.

i think the tails make it look a little meaner than stock, so i'd keep em. but new pics looks good, you got the turbo installed?.. i got a new front bumper, and its painted, im just waiting for it to be nice out, cuz its too dirty for pictures!

Posted By: jezekracing
