So first up, i need some suggestions for things i want to upgrade to the car.

1: Brake Calipers
2: Brake Pads
3: Brake Rotors

4: Shocks
5: Coilover sleeves

6: Sway bars

7: Headers
8: Highflow cat
9: Resonator
10: Muffler

My requirements are keep suggestions individually cheap, but not low quality cheap.

and for exhaust, im looking to keep highway drone really minimal and overall tone pretty low as well.

Also, what can i do about the antenna? its a power one that dosnt work and is broken in the middle. Are there stubby replacements or do i just have to get a new power one? id perfer to have something kinda short

thanks

They make replacement shark fin style and other style replacement antennas and you can find replacement OE antennas as well for pretty cheap. Just depends on what you want.


Don't buy cheap coilovers you'll regret it IMO. Save up and get some good ones and they will ride way better and last longer.


You're not going to notice much in form of power in doing 7,8,9,10 and if your looking for a mostly stock sound while cruising and some decent WAAAAAAAAP accelerating get rid of the airbox, put an intake on it along with a header. Pretty good sound under power but quiet while cruising.


I really noticed a big difference in handling when I put strut bars/braces on and they can be found pretty cheap as well.


As far as brakes go there really is no need to upgrade your calipers/brakes unless you're really driving the car hard and unless you need pads or rotors why replace them and put that money into something else. Upgrading your front calipers and rotors to something like Wilwwod can be done for between 4 and 500 but that is just the front.


Just depends on what your long term goal is for the car. Be patient and buy quality parts and you won't be disappointed.


Clean car!

Well when I meant cheap I meant don't point me to the most expensive thing out there. I want quality parts but I do have a to watch how much I spend.

And I don't know what is good quality and what isn't, which is why I made this post. Need some suggestions for everything

1: Calipers - Unnecessary. You're better off replacing the caliper seals, replacing brake lines, and bleeding the brakes. If you do want new calipers then the Wilwood DPHA is an easy and affordable aftermarket replacement.
2: Brake Pads - Depends on your usage. Street Integra brake pads are pretty affordable. I'd probably go with something from Hawk.
3: Brake Rotors - Cheap centric blanks from rockauto works. No need for fancy cross drilled/slotted rotors.

4: Shocks - Koni yellows.
5: Coilover sleeves - Ground Controls. Spring rates will depend on your application.

6: Sway bars - You'll need a subframe reinforcement brace. ASR and Function 7 make quality products and are about $200. There are many popular sway bars available. I'd shop around jhpusa.com to compare products and price points.

7-10: I wouldn't spend money trying to add power on an LS motor unless you're doing an actual turbo/N.A build. I'd only pick something up if it's used and cheap.

Look around on your local Facebook Honda group page and craigslist. There are lots of Integra parts out there and you can find excellent deals on used parts.

It'll be cheaper to go to the junkyard and pull a stock muffler as opposed to buying a new muffler and paying an hour of labor to a muffler shop. Integras are plentiful where I'm from and nobody wants the stock exhaust.

Well I needed it by today as I'm going out of town tomorrow and I don't want to hear the drone the whole time, and the junkyards are closed when I'm off work. So I already bought it and I'm having it installed just a bit before I leave.

Got a 3.25x7.75 Thrush Turbo muffler.

It actually isn't bad. It is just like a much quieter muffler delete. Same tone and whatnot. Not bad for the price I paid.

It'll still get replaced eventually

So I found out something interesting. My driver side window switch stops working in the intense Oklahoman summer heat, and works again when it cools down. Guess I need to replace that.

Clutch master cylinder went out. Got it fixed. Took a few days but I think I finally got the clutch properly bled. Although now sometimes it really fights me when I press on it. So not sure what's going on there.
