Installed this recently, need to figure out a better way for the horn than extra long wire though, some kinda custom contact ring.

Next up, pair of ST sway bars and ABS delete if I can find the parts which seems incredibly hard.

Thanks, some small things lately, 3 out of 4 wheel bearings bad, couldn't really hear them to know it with the loud exhaust and all but my team leader heard it. Got a ESP traction bar with front torque mount that should be here in a couple of weeks along with some ARP extended studs since my buddy picks on me for having the extended lugs without the studs haha.

Front brake upgrade may have to come sooner than later since I cut the rotors at work since they were warped and put the old pads back in only to find on the driver side the outer pad doesn't seem to want to touch and I'm leaning toward caliper since pins are fine. Got some new to me tail lights since mine had super thin cracks letting moisture in, wet sanded and polished before installation, makes just a big of difference as it does to headlights.

Need to get some better pics since it's so 4x4in' in the above pics but kinda hard when I nor no one I know does any sort of photography.

Installed the JTC customs short shifter, race version with shorter settings, put it on the top for shortest and you hardly have to move the lever to change gears. Also installed hybrid racing shift cable bushings, makes the shifter feel as solid as a RWD car, like the lever is mounted on top of the transmission. Shifting now feels similar to a AP2 S2000.

ESP traction bar should be here soon, leaning towards spoon calipers in the front. I don't want something really crazy and I like how they can hold a stock pad and use the OEM Si VTEC rotor but having the stopping power of a 4 pot caliper.

Took some pics of it, not the best but it's something, front caster is so noticeable, hopefully I can pull it into the positive when the traction bar gets here.

Thanks all, only thing that seems to be remaining is my traction bar, seems like ESP was backed up for the holidays but it should be shipping out any day. Gonna more than likely halt production for a time to save for a Nissan 180SX, an Evo X has made me want turbo but I don't wanna boost a FWD.

Well, looks like money needs to be dumped into the lude, was changing everything so that I could have 0 camber in front with a tiny bit negative rear, pretty much stock alignment but while having no fender gap. Put the wheels back on and was about to drive the car over to the alignment rack at work and the worst happens, front struts collapsed while fully extended, I could fit my fist between the fender and wheel in the front. Drove over the rack and made it fall back down close to where it should be but the front is totally locked, no travel at all, bounces like a pogo stick.

Looking at new setup, currently has Tein basics, been on for 3+ years, possibly gonna go GC/Koni, hopefully it lasts longer.

The Koni/GC setup is a very nice setup.

If you want to make the back end a little happy, run a higher rear rate, which helps rotate the rear out.

The car already felt like it had oversteer before, probably because the alignment was set to have 0 camber in front before the camber kit broke. Any time I pulled out of my work making a right turn with a little gas it felt like it wanted to kick around the rear, the LSD might have been contributing to it as well since it's going to want to put more power to the wheel that isn't rotating as fast which would be the outside.

I did some homework last night and no coilovers really have a warranty over 1 year which is understandable given the nature of what they are meant for and how many people buy them just to slam the car. According to tein mine were overdue for an overhaul, they recommend it every 3 years or 36k, had mine for 3.5 years. Overhauling them only costs $75 a shock and their east coast branch is close, Georgia, so shipping shouldn't be much. I had been wanting to upgrade to the Flex for a long time so I just picked those up since people who had those and the GC/Koni liked the Flex better and a little down the road I'll just have the Basic's rebuilt and maybe keep them for a backup so that the Flex's can be properly serviced every 3 years.

Forgot to update this, went with the Flex's and despite spending too much money I'm still very happy with them.

Pics of the new drop




I love this steering wheel!

No more camber kits, almost -3 all around.

Hopefully soon I can retire it to the garage, drove a 95 5 speed Accord LX that was in mint condition, gonna look for one as a beater. Gears were so long I could use 2 gears lower than my car and be at the same speed and RPM, don't know why anyone would use an Accord transmission in a Prelude, just keeps making people think Preludes are slow.

Got ESP traction bar with front torque mount in the mail today, may just go up to the job to install it and realign the car.

Long overdue update.

Did front brake OEM upgrade using 01 calipers with some Si VTEC front rotors and OEM pads. Calipers were bought from carfanatic98.

Dirty


Cleaned with wire wheel+air drill


Painted with silver caliper paint so they stay clean


Installed


Cut the rear rotors while I was at it since they were grooved and had a slight shake while braking


No pics of long ago mentioned traction bar since everyone has seen them. Was gonna put some braided Goodridge lines I've had forever on but got too lazy and had already been at work for like 12hrs.

Surprisingly they fill up the 16" wheels quite a bit.
