i got a sound system that is precise as a rifle

300watt rms sub by eclipse older model
blaunkpunkt speakers
kenwood amp
sony deck
dont need anything else

as far as the exhaust, il be better off with an intake probbably...my old one actually gave me more power after 4500, sounded good, and better MPG

unless you have a 1970's pushrod engine in there, the cat doesn't eat that much power. Most modern engines are designed with the cat in mind.

Some members even said they lost power then they deleted there cat because of the lost of back pressure.


We're just trying to save you some money. Most of the members have had I/H/E. Then went back to stock when they realized it didnt do anything and they lost there low end power. The d17 is tuned pretty well straight from the factory.

Getting power out of sohc low displacement 4 cyclinder is difficult.

Force induction or a swaps is the best way to get a lot of power out of the money you invested.

and there's always painting the door handles to match...

just some thoughts. gotta love the sedan!

are you in the city, or located outside of Philly? I sometimes visit my family in Devon, PA
yeah, gotta love sedans! or you can just go all out show (body kit,turbo, and more).

Re: 01 Sedan...need some advice...116k miles and boost?!

I ended up cutting the brackets off my generic Ebay intake and making my own with a piece of 90 degree bent aluminum (about 2" long by 1/2" wide) and a worm clamp. That way you can move it up and down the pipe to where you want it. The only difference in the AT and MT intakes is the location of the little mounting bracket.

^ speedfoos is right on. ebay intakes arent good for anything but the piping. i used my own hardware putting mine on when i had one and made little brackets for it.

Re: 01 Sedan...need some advice...116k miles and boost?!

thanks dudes...yea the brackets on my old ebay one didnt line up at all, but maybe this one will be different being obx, at least some form of a brand name. does the design look the same as the injen and fujita? it does to me

no, injen, obx, fujita cold airs will not fit on automatics, due to the tranny being in the way.

Re: 01 Sedan...need some advice...116k miles and boost?!

Did some thinking and I am feelin as follows for now

Put the exhaust on that I have
Blackout headlights
Ditch the lip and front bumper for a hybrid one
Hybrid lip spoiler
04/05 rear bumper
04/05 taillights
16in rotas (undecided on which ones I want)

that or I may just drive it the way it is since I want to get a new car when I turn 21, not sure yet. Suggestions?

Re: 01 Sedan...need some advice...116k miles and boost?!

I also have this axleback sitting in my garage..love the sound of it, but the look kills it for me...maybe I should paint it black and put it on instead of the exhaust??
