    First figure out what route you want to take. NA, get the air intake and a 2.25 inch exhaust system. If turbo, dont do intake and then do a 3 inch exhaust system. Next do suspention.

    Edit, i read the thing wrong, i thought it was a suggestion poll. Technicly intake was first on my car but the previous owner did that, MY first mod was exhaust

    i disagree with everything.

    SUSPENSION first. and suspension is NOT lowering it. lowering your car is for ricers. putting GOOD suspension on the car = good :)

    Tein's lower your car, or did you raise it back up? If not, calling yourself a rice? Bills car is lowered what little is it on Teins, he is a ricer i guess? Nah :)

    I would think that a decent looking lowered suspension job is just fine. As long as you don't have to go around speed bumps it's just low profile not rice..

    lowering is optional. i could easily run stock height on these.

    My mods kinda went like this:
    - Intake
    - Exhaust
    - Lowering springs w/ camber kit
    - Header
    - Brake rotors up front
    - Tires
    - Sony X-Plode 6x9's in the rear
    - Cam gear
    - H22A swap y0, funk dis single cam VTEC shizzy!
    - Cam gears, clutch and lightweight flywheel
    - Tokico Blue shocks
    - Got rid of the Sprint Springs, installed some H&R Sport's
    - Soon to come - GReddy Emanage System

    Gone from that list are all cosmetic mods. Thanks to lsvtec for corrupting me with his damn Integra. He got to to buy the intake for my previously stock car than I had never even dreamt about modding. Then it was all downhill from there. Also thanks to him for keeping me relatively rice-free.

    Dropping D16z6 in this weekend. Been listening to stock 50w blown speakers and receiver that couldn't get reception with a 50 foot antenna for the last 2 months. So I mostly hum to myself. Next I'll drop in a B18C when I get some green.

    i normally would vote for the intake first, but you already have a fairly fast car (prelude), so i voted for rims instead, since you are obviously into looks and rims would make the most visual impact..even more than lowering it. i lowered my car before i got rims and wish i had done the rims first.
