Lude's taking far too long, so I'm breaking... my daily drive 106 Rallye, and I've bought this!... ;)

Some of you may well recognise this little beaut as Shaun(ludeswamp)'s baby. Well after struggling to resist the almost giveaway price he was offering it for and after attempting to sell my Rallye and then the head gasket going the day after I took a deposit ( :roll: ), I finally have Vtec in my life again! :vtec: :D

I picked her up on Saturday after a 4 hour drive, and after a 4 hour drive back again I can confirm I'm chuffed to bits! :D

As Shaun had said in his ad, the front droplinks were shot, but they only really made themselves known in the last 15 miles of my 200 mile trip. So I replaced those Sunday morning along with the front sway-bar bushes (I'd planned ahead, thanks to Lude Stu ;-) ) and it turns out I had a spare set of front aeroblade wipers to replace the knackered ones from when I did my single wiper conversion on the project lude. That done and considering she drives sweet as a nut, fingers crossed she should fly through the MOT on Wednesday.

Then whilst I had the two front wheels off I took the opportunity to add my own touch to her...

... and now I have a great excuse to keep my OZ Racing wheels! :lol:

And before any one says anything, Nope!... she's staying at that height :P The plan from the start is to keep her as standard/OEM as possible as I still have my project lude to spoil ;-) Be no sense upgrading the performance of two identical Preludes (As that's what they are... Bar the colour(s) they are both H22a with LSD and no extras... Just the way I like them ;-) ) It'll be good for comparison.

She currently has an ebay induction kit, but I'll be returning this to standard with one of the OEM airboxes Shaun also provide me with. She's also got a Tanabe Sustec front stut brace and ebay rear, but I have no issues leaving those fitted for now ;-)

Image

The only thing I may upgrade is the exhaust. She currently has a PowerFlo back box fitted to the centre section, but I'm not too keen on the oval tail pipe. My current exhaust on the project lude is an amazing Pro-Speed custom 2.5" catback exhaust with decat, but I plan to up that to a 2.75" system, so rather than get rid of the Pro-Speed (which I don't want to do) I'll pop it on this lude instead... Once she's passed the MOT of course ;-)

There are a few other bits and bobs I'll be sorting along the way, including reworking the front Azect lip, as as Shaun pointed out, he did a bit of a rush job on it to make a show on time, so it just needs a little attention ;-)

Anyway, there she is for now... with a number of little OEM JDM trick bits ;-) ... Looking pretty 8-)

Awesome!! What an addition to your fleet of cars :lol:

Great car and glad you get to drive these car instead of just having them in your garden. :P

Keep it OEM, I think I may have a OEM air intake box if you want it? I'm only gona charge the postage. 8-)

Edit: Never read that you already have an OEM air intake box.

Cheers guys :)

They're 17's I'm afraid Merlin, the OZs are 16... Best size for a 4th IMO ;-)
The 17"s will be for sale though.

And cheers for the offer Nitin, but yeah... Shaun actually gave me two spare OEM airboxes and pipes along with a whole boot full of other bits and bobs :)

And yep... That's what I hoping you'd think Lucas :lol:

I never thought we'd see this again. :o
I'm so glad one of us bought it! I'm also very happy to hear you're going to keep it standard. :mrgreen:

Glad you approve Pushki :)

And the high level brake light/Prelude logo that you gave Shaun is still destined to be fitted to her as well ;-)
