Default Should I keep my 01 GS-R integra stock?

My mother brought me an integra about 2 years ago, and it won't be up and running until this year. So far, I can see that the guy who owned it before me kept it all stock and dirty (not in a good way). I had soo many plans to build the engine and switch out some exterior and interior components, but lately more people favor the all stock integras. I wouldn't be doing a JDM conversion, or anything flashy like that. But I do plan on lowering it on some Skunk 2's. What do you think?

Keeping it stock is entirely up to you, but don't just start modding your car without proper research. Learn to drive the car and its habits. Then mod accordingly to your driving style and use/ goal of the car.

Just remember these two simple rules when modifying your car;

1. Maintenance before mods

2. K.I.S.S = Keep it simple stupid

Also, learning to do your own maintenance will help you in the wallet department.

Check out the Honda-Tech forum if you need help with anything. A lot of helpful people on there, plus about 80% of the folks on are or were at one point a Honda technician.

if you plan to keep it , do what you want. if you plan to sell it, keep it stock.
