Default 1998 acura integra rs?

I just perchased a 1998 acura integra rs with 98000 miles on it for a good price. I was wondering if i should bother putting money into it for performance parts ( intake, headers,turbo, etc) or are there to many miles on it thanks

Best bet if this is going to be a long term thing for you is to have the motor balanced and ported. Tear it down and have it totally cleaned up. Then go from there.If it's more of a short term thing, consider Tokico adjustable shocks, and maybe a set of freer flowing headers and exhaust.

Depends on what type of performance you want. If you're looking for a little more pep, then you should be fine with a cold air intake and exhaust. If you're wanting to race with it then you'll probably want to save your money for something else. While the engine is probably fine, when you start throwing tons of hard driving and power modifiers on it things may start to go crazy and it's best to have a second car to drive while doing so. The integra is a better daily drive than speed machine.

i would do it its little miles compared to my 94 integra ls it had 168k miles on it when i bought it. i spent a lot of money on performance parts and eventually my car messed up and its not worth fixing up anymore.
