Help me make my 91 lx go fast.

I'm new to tuning cars, and i would like some suggestions on what type of intake and what type of muffler i should put on my car so as not to damage the engine. Thanks

Just about any intake will work, as they're all metal tubes. Just get a good quality filter on the end of it.

As for exhaust, get a full cat back instead of a muffler only. The muffler will make you sound "fast", but a full catback will at least give you minimal gains.

As for other questions, use the search bar. These questions have been asked time and time again. Read all the stickies in the different sections too, they'll provide you with plenty of info.

I have a magnaflow cat-back. Sounds really nice, not pingy or ricey or anything, lol.

AEM and K&N for the intake.

Apexi and GReddy for the exhaust.


www.cb7tuner.com for the ideas. I hear that they've been talking about making CB7s fast on that site since 2003... so I bet there are a TON of ideas floating around if you read through!

Start searching around here.

And if you really want to "go fast" an intake and exhaust aren't going to do much besides trick your ears into thinking you're fast.

Apexi WS2 is a great queit catback. RSR ex-mag if you can get a hold of one. Both a tad pricier but quieter and better sounding imo.

Magnaflow and custom are common.

You can't damage your engine from an exhaust. It's just the pipe diamter that matters.

Just read a lot. Don't buy anything for a while. I know you're probably anxious too. but if you spend 6 months reading on here and looking in the right places with out posting up a lot of "noob" threads you'll be much better off and more knowladgeable. Get yourself a little bit more into the car scene before you buy things you'll regret in the future.

Hey, it's a funny thread, because airflow and a muffler won't do anything to make your car go faster (like ilovemycb7 said, you'll bark loud, but won't have any bite). Might as well just paint on racing stripes... it'll be cheaper and you'll get the same performance gain.

If your car is well maintained, dropping your factory cat for a cheap shit aftermarket one on ebay is stupid. Unless you don't care about the environment/or have an emissions test to worry about...
