Default Mod's, In general

I have had my 91 sedan for about a month and have planned the following:

1 Air intake- thought about injen (or similar) or a DIY include a coolant bypass

Any thoughts? pro's con's?

2. Talion chip (sp) forgot, forgive me. In regards to the chip, decided that's what I want but, should I do my other mod's first then the chip? It's gonna happen just depending on when I should. Thoughts???

3. Exhaust, I want a simple set up, minimal cost and reasonably good growl, sorry no rice sound. What is a good pick for this?

4. I am doing Eibach springs, maybe HID's, prolly just the other kind (forget what), leaving wheels stock and painting calipers either red (passe), blue like car, or yellow or white...what's your pick on colors????

Last I will do some interior stuff, install a custom mesh grill, black out tail lights (paint), audi upgrades, etc...Mainly curious on the caliper colors, exhaust and when to do my chip in the process...

One question, complete noob mind you....How do I know if my car has TCS or not? Searched and searched to no evail. Thank you much

If you have a TCS written on the air intake your car has TCS.
Since you have a 91 you won't have it.

Injen air intake is good although ebay will do fine.
Telion chip is nice too although some prefer sr5guy

There are no cheap bolt on exhausts from what you've just said a Remus would be perfect.

Paint the caliper yellow. White is going to be a ass to clean.

I didn't think I had it but couldn't find a way to verify it, thanks.

E-bay one will still allow me to do the coolant bypass correct? (if it has the plug-ins)

Yellow was my first thought but white would be slick if I could figure out a way to keep em very very clean, Thanks man

oh, so what stage should I do the chip, last?

There pretty cheap i'd do it asap. unless you want to do a Type-II or 3.5 conversion or tranny swap.

coolant bypass has nothing to do with your intake tubing (can be done with stock intake)
A good ebay one should have all the holes. It's recommended you put a K&N filter on them or something comparable

well, from what I read, and sorry if I'm bugging you, but if I get a chip from when my car is stock could be different if I bought it and Telion was aware of an intake, exhaust etc... I only plan on chip, intake, exhaust and maybe one or two more things....sorry,just tyring to figure this out, I had an Infiniti before this and never did a damn thing to it but ask me about a chevy and I'll hook ya up LMAO

Intake - ebay will be OK. Injen ones look nicer IMO. I would be sceptical of the filter that comes with the Ebay intakes though

Telion chip - get it. it doesn't matter when you get it for the Telion chip i believe. you can add mods on as you go... i dont think Telion has that many different versions of his chip but i havent really stayed current on his stuff

Exhaust - if you just want a Legend specific muffler you can go with Remus or Stromung but they are both expensive ($500 range). as far as those go, Remus is pretty quiet and Stromung is a little bit louder (not ricey at all though) or you can go to a muffler shop and choose a nice looking flowmaster and have them weld it on for a cheaper price and it will still sound good.

Eibach springs - Make sure you get Koni shocks to go with those or else you're gonna blow the stock shocks quick and end up replacing them again.

Calipers - i like red. Might as well get type II calipers while you're at it. this will require the type II calipers and rotors (and obviously pads) to be changed, so you get new, upgraded, nice looking brakes.

Its better to get your mods then your chip. I mean theres no reason you can't run a chip without the mods aslong as you do, do them soon.

for exhaust remus or stromung is your options unless you go custom.

intake, ebay + k&n = best bang for the buck.

chip telion or sr5guy make both good chips.

calipers I prefer red aslong as you have upgraded brakes, if you have stock rotors and pads, silver look very nice.

also your car should not have tcs because of its year.

I'll send you a pm for more stuff.
