    ____________________________________________

    What's you're Favorite Mod?
    at the moment it’d have to be the coilovers, they make such a difference to the cars handling!

    If you had your time to redo everything again what would you do or not do?
    start with a vtir.

    How long have you had the prelude for?
    hrmmm going on 4 yrs

    If you could have another Model Prelude - What would it be?
    id have another 4th gen thanks

    How long did it take you to decide what Mods to do?
    I don’t really plan mods, just have an idea and run with it

    Where did you get your ideas?
    I draw inspiration from heaps of places and I have a pretty good imagination, and I like to be different.

    Did you do majority of the Mods yourself?
    Yeh most of the mods were done with my own hands, except for the engine swap. Im a hands on kinda guy lol

    Do you have a name for your lude?
    na she is just “the lude”

    What Mods did it have when you bought it?
    none at all

    Has it been Dyno'ed? What's the result?
    yeh twice now, first run was when the engine was first put in, pulled 121kw atw. 2nd run was last weekend (with the rooted cat lol) pulled 126.3kw.

    Next Mod?
    Im trying to stop spending money on her lol

    Future Aspirations for Prelude?
    I really want to turn her into a much more track orientated car, but cant afford to

    How do you find the police are towards your lude? Any stories?
    I don’t really drive her that much outside of peak hour going to and from work, and cops tend to avoid peak hour like the plague lol. I guess because of this ive never technically been pulled over

    The teins are great for the street, good comprimise between comfort and stiffness. They are a bit soft though if you want to track your car, they tend to roll a little before settling especially during fast corners.

    Thanks for that mate, not looking to track the car, infact not sure how long ill have the car if i get the position iv applied for at a car dealership (hello company car) so looking for a setup that arnt going to shatter my spine from the stiffness but will still give me good road holding.
