My 1998 LS

Hey guys. So back in september i bought this 98 LS for $4500. It had 133k miles and is a 5 speed manual.

Finally decided to actually keep it for a while instead of selling it and buying a camaro so i figured id join up on this forum.

I havent done any mods to it except new tires and a sticker. The headlights were blue when i bought them.

I plan on getting a new radio, exhaust, and headlights as my first mods in the coming weeks.

After that ill look into new brakes and suspension.

Nice car, and welcome to Team-Integra! Are the headlights made of blue tinted plastic or has a film been applied? They look to be in pretty good shape, so take a close look before you purchase replacements. Standard performance bolt-ons are cold air intake, headers, and exhaust, not necessarily in that order.

Be sure to check out the articles which can be found under the "Tools" heading, above, for lots of good information covering all aspects of your car.

While surfing Team-Integra.net I listen to Pandora.com

Decent LS man, looks like you're headed in the right direction so far. Better choice than a Camaro anyday if you ask me

Looks good. I'd look into maintenance before modding.

What makes you say you need to replace the rack?

It's leaking fluid. And my brakes are old and probably haven't been replaced in a while.

Speaking of brakes, anyone know of some good rotors/calipers/drums?

Good set of daily brakes with a touch more bite that I personally love is the cryo treated Centrics with the painted cooling vanes and a set of Hawk HPS pads. These still allow a good bite when cold like you need on a daily, but yet still hold up well to some spirited back road use threw some twisty roads and with the cryo treated rotors I have deff noticed they do not warp nearly as easy as just the plain old run of the mill ones they shell out by the dozens. Follow that set up with the proper sequence bleeding of the lines depending on your year Integra and you will have a nice reliable little set up and it's still pretty quiet to use.

I just changed out my brake lines with the pre-made Russell/Edelbrock ones on my 98 LS. Very good quality and I highly recommend it along with a fluid flush. My old fluid was probably the original which would make it 18 years old with 102K miles on it. It was a nasty brown color, I disconnected the passenger side line first and used a vacuum pump to suck out all the old fluid. Then I went around and removed all the other lines in order of furthest from the master cylinder to closest and sucked whatever else fluid I could. After I got everything I could out, I reconnected all of the stock hoses temporarily, filled the reservoir up with brand new Lucas synthetic and starting with the drivers front replaced the stock lines with the stainless ones and bled the new fluid in using the the vacuum pump. This time in order of closest to the master cylinder to furthest remembering to completely fill the reservoir after each line before moving to the next. Once I got all 4 done, I went back to the front drivers side and bled it again in the same order. It used the entire quart. I think its safe to say I got all of the old fluid out and its fully serviced with the new fluid. Next Im looking at new rotors all around (either EBC or Password JDM), new pads (EBC), and possibly new calipers (powerstop). Im also going to replace all of the wheel bearings and hubs at the same time as the brakes. Timken for sure.
