    Raysian's BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST Progress thread

    My prelude story begins a long long time ago when i was knee high to a 4th gen back in the old days 4th gens ruled the streets, all the other hondas would cower in fear, tremble at the mear unmistakable sound of a proper h22 vtec cross over.
    yes folks these were hard times.
    but out of the chaos, fire and engine oil shed from its victims, along its rampaging path comes a new contender...
    with a roar just as mighty if not more so (looks at pacman) with power to put the 4th gen to shame ( looks at pacman =p)
    the mighty 5th gen!!!
    ... to join the ranks and poke fun at all the other hondas lol.

    This... is his story.

    haha ok now i have at the moment a 5th gen with a few mods here and there i was a bit confused on where i wanted to take the prelude in the future.
    either a tuned NA? or just do up the suspension and exhaust and later down the track sell her and get another car.
    BUT this is a prelude we are talking about here so im taking boost as my option gotta love option C.



    so far my mod list is
    suspension
    -koni yellow shocks
    -king springs
    -ultraracing strut brace

    exterior: i have toyed with a few ideas oem lip kit, wwrs lip kit or a body kit, ive decided im going to try my hand at making a body kit so we'll see how that pans out later
    so far
    -angel eyes headlights
    -tinted rear lights
    -tinted indicators

    engine bay
    -oil filter relocation kit
    -vac lines
    interior
    -pioneer headunit forget the part number but its a touch screen.
    - recaro sr3s ( yet to buy rails)
    -drift iridium gauges
    -modifying the center dash to suit gauges (updates to come)

    vision for the future

    to beat pacman ... i mean uh about 270 hp at the fly nothing big at the moment if i get within reach i wouldn't mind
    the engine has stock internals so im going to keep it reliable rather than squeezing for power.

    ongoing projects:

    so far i have the turbo sitting pretty waiting for me to mock up a manifold, and the gauge center console already cut, just need a few more supplies and some time and ill have it in.

    so i hope you enjoy the thread as much as i will, and i hope to driving her to more meets in the future

    I'd be worried too if a 5th gen threatened to be faster then the Pac-mobile

    ok so plans so far is to mock up the manifold, just having a little trouble with the pipe sizes, i was talking to pacman about this, just let us know on those runner sizes and ill see where i go from there.
    there runners arent the issue i need to know pretty close to exact sizes to mock up the collector but when i have more info on piping ill go from there.
    im aiming for something like this
    but if thats is too far outta my reach something in between pjfs and pacmans
    but for now i made up gauge holders for the center console, im gonna see if i can get them wrapped up in fabric so it'll give that nice finish =]
    So pics of the gauge holders so far its just a rough idea on how they'll sit


    (still working out how to post pictures will fix)

    just by any chance does anyone have (to scale) a h22 exhaust gasket template on a pdf?
    or information on turbo header pipe dimensions?
    i want to aim for the same pipe size as the stock header. to help with with power at low rpm
