New Ride (99 GSR)
Hello everyone, I was going to post this in the "New Member Section" but apparently it is down at the moment.
Recently purchased a 99 GSR, to replace my Subaru.
I'll be the first to say that Acura/Honda are a little foreign to me. But, I don't plan on doing anything to complex to the GSR as it will be my daily driver. Beyond polishing blades, changing oil, filter, plugs, cables, ect... for starters.
I have to admit, there are a quite a few things I enjoy about the GSR over my old Subaru 2.5 RS.
-more trunk room (amazing)
-faster car (VTEC is cool)
-parts are more available and certainly cheaper (I like cheap!)
As of now my only future plans for the GSR are to upgrade the I/H/E
Intake: I have read and researched the crap out of this, but due to lack of funds I think I going to end up doing a DIY icebox for now. Ebay SRI(for the pipe), K&N filter to fit into the airbox, and then remove the resonator and reroute the airbox pipe for some cold air. Down the road I'd like to get a "whale penis" or a AEM CIA, but I live in the PNW where is rains 8 months out of the year and hydro lock kinda scares me. Thus, I am leaning towards the "whale penis".
Headers: JDM ITR 4-1 or DC Sports 4-1 seems to be the way to go...even though I know i'll have to buy a new cat or do some welding in order to make it work.
Exhaust: I would prefer to go with an Apexi WS-2 or a Tanabe Medalion, but there is no way I can justify spending $500 - $600 for exhaust. So, I thinking Yonaka cat back is the route to go...mainly because it only $250, quiet, and has some pretty decent reviews.
I am interested to know if I am making a mistake with any of the following upgrades, or if anyone has better suggestions.
Thank you. (I'll be uploading pics of the GSR soon)
