What's up family! I recently bought a Del Sol S/ automatic trans with 137k miles on it and it is very clean, one owner. Some dings here and there but otherwise the car was well taken care of - both mechanically and cleanliness.

The car is a joy to drive but I want to slowly upgrade things.

Would advise that I start with the engine (rebuild it/clean it up) or concentrate on upgrading the tires/wheels (currently it has 13" wheels)? I've been told I should upgrade to 14" but would love your advice.

Also, advice on where some of you get good quality parts at reasonable prices.

Here is what I've found in terms of rebuild options: 1993 Honda Civic del Sol 1.5L Engine Rebuild Kit - EK290 -10

Thanks in advance.

Honestly, as far as performance upgrades to any car, it's generally best to start with the wheels and suspension, then work your way towards the engine. If you plan it to be a high-performance build, you will eventually want to find a way to stiffen the body (some people do partial roll cages).

But wheels and suspension should be first.
