    QUESTION TIME

    What's you're Favourite Mod?

    Can I pick two? lol would definitely have to say the Turbo is my favourite, followed closely by the body kit.

    If you had your time to redo everything again what would you do or not do?

    I definitely wouldn't pay upfront to have any work done to the car......long story. It would be nice to find a workshop somewhere here in Tas that is willing to work on my car, engine wise, so then I could keep an eye on the progress.
    Apart from that, I'm happy with the way things have progressed.


    How long have you had the prelude for?

    I purchased the car from a local car yard in September 2003, so I've owner her for just over 5 years now.

    If you could have another Model Prelude - What would it be?

    I don't particularly like the other model Ludes, hence why I picked the one I have, however if I absolutely had to choose another model it would be the 3rd Gen.

    How long did it take you to decide what Mods to do?

    As soon as I purchased the car the ideas were flowing. The only plan that has changed from the beginning is the colour. I originally wanted to spray her blue with a purple pearl but the white and black theme is growing on me now, and the fact that it will cost heaps less for a respray down the track.
    Never honestly thought she would have a whizzer either, that was the very first plan I had for her, never thought it would EVER happen, but once someone tell me I can't do something, I make sure to prove them wrong.

    Where did you get your ideas? Where does my inspiration come from?

    Ideas and inspriation come from many hours browsing the internet, looking at parts and other cars that have features that I like, and putting them all together to create (hopefully) one unique car.

    Did you do majority of the Mods yourself?

    I wish :-(
    I'd love nothing more than to be able to get in and get my hands dirty, but unfortunately my lack of auto knowledge and hands on experience means that 90% of the work is done by my mates, my dad and workshops.
    I installed the stereo, painted the tail lights and relocated the battery myself, everything else I came up with the idea and paid for.

    Do you have a name for your lude?

    Neirbo - It is O'Brien backwards, which is my last name, and my custom plates.


    What Mods did it have when you bought it?

    Coilovers, tinted windows which I had replaced.


    Has it been Dyno'ed? What's the result?

    Yes, the first run it did 110kws, after a very quick road tune it pulled I think about 153kws at the wheels.


    Next Mod?

    New wheels. I'd like a set of Speedy Lite-5's, 18" black mmmm yummy


    Future Aspirations for Prelude?

    Bigger brakes, serviced gearbox, boot install, retrim interior, new engine and turbo setup, new ecu and a decent tune, full respray, lsd, vertical doors, shaved bits and pieces, braided lines, angel eye projector headlights, that about it I think lol just enough to get it featured in one magazine and worthy to enter Autosalon.

    How do you find the police are towards your lude? Any stories?

    They are pretty reasonable I think. I've only ever been questioned for my dark tint, and a blown tail light. I think here in Hobart they are pretty lenient compared to the rest of Aus.
