id say keep the damn car and give her the 5grand. but if you must give, sell all the aftermarket parts you paid for, and put that towards a nice clean 4th gen. and i think you'd be better off sticking with an accord or civic. when i was looking for cars with a small budget, the only cars that didnt look like a box on wheels, were hondas. just look around and see what you can find mileage-wise, but personally i like 4th's the best.

yeah. Why do you have to give your sister the car? But if you must, you could probably search a lil bit and find a 92 with reasonable mileage.

Start anew and creat the ultimate 4th gen.

Or I guess if not that, you got a nice dependable ride.

I'd say you are getting shafted. AT LEAST strip all the mods off the car and sell them before you have to give her the car. Or use them on your next ride. Your money payed for the shit. Not hers.

i paid for all the mods and the stereo. there is one thing u guys need to understand. when my sis is home from school, the car is actually mine. im just giving her the car to go to school and back, and my dad was like if u want another car, u can get it just for here to there use.

well i still dont quite understand your family situation, but thats ok. keep your car whenever you can, and for spare use, take that 5grand and get a nice 4th gen... like mine

she dont really want to drive the car around in the first place. she says the muffler is too deep and it sounds like her ears are gonna go deaf and the ride is too bouncy. no one can handle my car except me. so i dont think she will want to take my car anywhere else. my dad is planning on buying my sis a car and i could finally get my greddy exhuast and my bw kit i been dreaming for. i still have 5 grand saved up. wat else should i do except for a engine swap?

for looks or performance??

i can tell you one thing, please dont get a big bullshit "fast and furious" wing. after you get your "future mods" throw in a header, lightened pulleys, and a highflow cat. and i know you said except, but if you have the money, just get a swap and stop wasting money on an obsolete motor. just think of a h22 as the ultimate bolt-on, and it will sure as hell give you more than a ihe.

ur right strodda. but there is one problem, i have a 96 v6 accord. i really cant do much to the engine. no headers or none of that. everything has to been custom. im more into looks than speed cuz ive heard too many stories about racing and all that shit. if i do race, i would go on a track. im not a pussy, its just that i dont wanna get hurt or end up dead. thas just my opinion. i was thinkin about gettin the huge ass wing but too many people have that shit. i see cars that are completed stock and have the wing. i dont get the point of that. but i wanna get some feeback, wat do u guys think about the black widow kit all around including the spoiler. i dont see much of that.( the black widow wing )

hey man I just got my BWI kit put on and just love it but be pre warned this kit hangs low....
I didnt go with the BW wing just cuz I had a factory one on there and didnt want to pay the extra $$ to get the holes sealed up

other than that I'm really happy with the kit..I'd have to say that you should put that 5Gs towards a new kit, hood, and a really nice (total car) paint job.
