Specifically Honda, but does anyone know what parts are the hottest for JDM enthusiasts? If you don't know, I will be in Japan all summer, with some free time, and I have been saving my money to do a little enterprising...
Hoping to make a list of things to buy/look for...discount to GS members/people who reserve junk!
Yeah, if anyone wants to buy a bunch of crap in japan and save on shipping I might be able to help, or I might be able to source parts per request, I should have enough free time to spend a good afternoon or two in the junkyard and poking around,
Maybe the JDM coin tray for my VX? It's a little plastic tray that goes where the dimmer usually sits in the dash on the 92-95 Civics in the US. I'm really only looking to spend about $5 on something like that.
Ohh wait... Get me a replica J's Racing intake, preferably a black ABS plastic one. I only need the tube, don't need the filter. According to Dynographs it shifts the HP and Torque Curve lower in RPMs and I want to test it out for FE.
They go for ~ $65 shipped on ebay for the knockoffs but if you can get one for a better price that would be awesome!
...but I've decided to go with a stock Acura (or JDM Honda) Integra Type-R full header-back exhaust system, including the CAT. I may go with a Tri-Y/4-2-1 header to match it all up. The expectation from other 'Teg drivers is a free-flow design with an emphasis on low-end driveability/FE (from their tests) and it's quiet.
Oh, and the 2.2L iCDTi engine if you should happen to find one laying around...
