:confused:

I have a 1999 Honda Accord Coupe. I am looking to do some basic mods to give a better sound and some better pick up. I want to get a Cold Air Intake as well as a new muffler. I am doing some interior mods (like everyone does), but I am really not sure what to do to get more power from the engine. Do I get new plugs, new plug wires, new what?

Also, what can expect from the muffler and Cold Air Intake?

I am new to this, so take it easy on me.

Thanks
Justin

Don't expect much from basic bolt ons! But If you do put on the header/exhaust/intake you will notice a difference! You can upgrade your ignition you!

How much do you have to spend, did you want to go all out and swap the engine, or maybe a turbo? Or just stay with the basic mods

Hey,

I am looking to spend around $1G right now - not including wheels and tires.

I know that doesn't allow for much, but...

I agree!! Go that route in that order.

Alternatives:
Iceman CAI
HP 4-2-1 Headers (supposed give as much HP as DC)

Did you notice an increase of sound when you put on your header, i don't have a header and was wondering i put on a dc sports 4-2-1 if it would change the sound of my apexi ws at all, even louder?

Grill Trade

Sounds like a good trade to me. Is it silver? That is what it looks like in the picture.

Let me know and we'll work out the details.

I put my header on before I got my WS exhaust. However, I didn't notice an more volume due to the header. My previous exhaust was a cheap, loud custom job that probably overshadowed any sound made by my headers.
