Re: $250 idk what to do

rofl - you're asking people who mod honda's for a living, and you're asking where to put your money?

sorry but get some common sense

Re: $250 idk what to do

sry if i seemed rude, jus get alot of new ppl who post for no reason and don't really care about what they ask lol but u seem truly interested :P

did you purchase the rex yet? is it an Si? Any amount of money saved will benefit the rex, however i don't think you can do anything too major with $250, maybe some headers and an intake, or a nice custom exhaust. First, answer these questions?

1. Type and year of crx?
2. What are your goals for the car (mustang killer, highest power possible, daily driver)?
3. How much is your budget? I know you mentioned the 250 but are you planning on dropping more into it?

Give us some more info and we can give you some opinions

Re: $250 idk what to do

where you put your money now depends on what your car will do later. so first...you really want to decide if you want to do a motorswap, and although you dont need a swap to run 13's, but you might need it to kill the v8s that are running 10's 11's and 12's. if it was MY money, i would put it towards suspension first. id rather have my car handle great first, then speed second. you can get a nice set of springs for around 150-200 dollars. or, you can save that $250 and pick up a set of TEIN basic coilovers for $500 more. not only will springs/coilovers improve your handling, but they will give your car that aggressive stance on the street.

Re: $250 idk what to do

20k into a rex seems kind of overkill "bro". just my 2 cents, but for 20 grand I would personally invest it in something else if youre serious about that kind of money. like a later generation civic and swap the k series in there. but like GTA said, its your car.

also, like nismo power said, your definitely gonna need something bigger to mess with anyone pushing a decent v8. and chances are, if they do have a v8 and will race you, they're confident that they can beat you, meaning they have invested some money into their car. Make sure you surprise them....

Re: $250 idk what to do

how old are you....9? $250 isn't much for building a car, a decent car anyways. You need to saveup and make sure you don't cheap out.

And "bro" went out of style when they canceled Saved By The Bell....
