what can i do to hop up a d15b2 to make it some what respectable on a budget
Intake, Headers, Exhaust .. in that order three simple things to make your D15 act different
if you're just looking for easy work, without doing any internal motor mods, on a budget here is a few things I can share:
4-2-1 stainless steel headers; ebay i found one for under $50
N1 style stainless steel Cat-Back; ebay had one for under $150
Hi Flow Catalytic Converter; under $20
Nextgear Thermoshield or Hondata Intake Gasket; $50
Short-ram Ari intake plus hi-flo filter; under $50
I'd say you can go budget on those parts and find them on E-bay, but my best suggestion is if you're ever going to do any suspension mods dont buy cheap camberkits or coil-overs/springs. stick to Skunk2 rear camber kit, and maybe skunk2 or Blox front camber kit(i liked it cause it was grey/silver)
I wanted to lower my car, and after some bad purchases on cheap coil-overs and cheap rear camber kit, and 2 complete alignment jobs, wasted time and money, I learned to buy quality suspension parts. I just bought Tein S.Tech lowering springs, these you can use on your OEM strut/shocks without too much wear, and real Skunk2 rear Camber adjustment kit, probably a smart move on my part.
