---> Make your own out of 4ga audio grade wiring and connectors. About $40 for everything and works just as good. Just find out the proper mounting points.

TEIN S. TECH SPRING KIT: $173.00
---> I suggest some good dampers along w/ this.

Spoon Sports Racing Spark Plugs - $112.00
---> Totally not needed, nor will they give any significant gains.

KingMotorsports Big Bore Throttle Body by 4mm more - $ 150
---> I believe it's 2mm overbore...King's site is incorrect (and they're too lazy to change it)

GoodRidge Steel Brake Line - around $173.00 - done
---> Before you get SS lines, get a good set of pads and better tires first. Remember, SS lines are only for FEEL...so you can better modulate the brakes. No good if the brakes themselves and tires suck.

A cold air intake is missing from your list, which is a pretty big item. And a Hondata IM gasket is only $60. How about an exhaust and high-flow cat to go with your headers?

Hondata ECU is $600, but well worth the $100 stretch over.

And definitely some good tires should be on the list. Stock wheels & tire size are more than adequate, just upgrade the rubber itself.

Strut braces (front/rear strut tower, x-brace, rear lower, etc.) aren't all that expensive either . . . .

Don't bother getting those spark plugs (or get some denso iridium's for half the price). Unless you're having problems with brake cooling, I'd save your money on the brake ducts as well. And you should be able to find a magnetic drain plug at most autoparts stores that will cost a fifth of what that Spoon one does.

On my old car: I had about 2k worth of stereo system....new car..only about $1.3k...i don't know why people are bitching about the sound quality of bose system...IMO system/head unit it self is very good...I just upgrade all 4 speakers..and added AMPS..sounds GREAT now! I might do a Pioneer Nav System in the future..but for now, I am very happy with InDash 6-CD changer :) Just upgrade door spekers...and get yourself 600 watts amps to push for the speakers..and add a Woofer...and amp for it if you like
