Integra Performance Parts
Integra Performance Parts are available for your Acura/Honda car. Let's face it,
you are car enthusiast and want more power out of your Honda or Acura.
There are many manufacturers out there that can easily satisfy your need for speed.
Like Toda, AEM, Spoon, and Mugen to name a few.
One important thing to know is that you don't want to haphazardly add parts to your car
because performance parts can be expensive and they may not work well with each other. You want to mix and match
parts that compliment each other rather than work against each other.
The good news is that most aftermarket parts are made to bolt on to your car
without making any type of modifications. That means if you like to work on your car, you'll probably be
able to install the part yourself!
If you are not mechanically inclined, expect it to take 2 to 4 times longer than a
professional would take to do the job. The reason it may take longer is that as a do-it-yourselfer, you may
spend lots of time cranking away at a nut or bolt, or scratching your head trying to
figure out how to take something apart.
One thing that you must have is a Helms service repair manual for the year,
make, and model of the car you own. It contains everything you need to know to repair your car - all the way
down to the torque spec for each nut and bolt. It will save you time and money and is worth its weight in
gold. There are other cheap manuals out there like Chilton or Haynes. They'll get you by, but if you want to
use the same manual that Acura mechanics use, buy a Helms.
There are some things that you might want to leave for the professionals. Like the
installation of a turbo or supercharger. You can't just bolt those parts on and expect your engine to be
reliable. You'll likely need a bunch of other parts, like gauges, steel braided water lines, or upgraded clutch to
handle the extra power. You'll also need your car tuned by a reputable dealer to make sure you have
the correct fuel mapping to create the power and prevent your car engine from blowing up.
The first thing you may want to decide before purchasing your integra performance parts is
if you want to keep your car engine NA (Naturally Aspirated) or go FI (Forced Induction).
You may even want to keep the engine NA for a while and go FI later on. But keep in mind, if you go
that route, you won't be able to re-use some of the integra performance parts you purchase for NA
use. A good example is a cold air intake. You can't re-use this in a turbo application because the
intake plumbing is incompatible in a turbo setup.
See the Auto Repair Tools for a complete list of must-have tools if you are going to work
on your car.
Also be sure to read the Auto
Repair Safety page. Your car weighs over 2000 lbs and you don't want
it to kill you!
