Welcome ..removing the catalytic converter will only pollute the air, it may also increase the hp. Many of us us a high flow catalytic converter such as magma flow or whatever brand found on ebay.com

JDM Legend nice!


The only thing I don't like about living in America, When I lived in the caribbean you got choices of what kind of cars to buy USDM, JDM, EDM.

switch to a Type II intake manifold will get you more power.


EDIT: You Venezuela how much you guys paying for gas?

nice legend!

more power, like someone said, Telion chip! cold air intake. you can remove the cat, it'll decrease back pressure, might net you 5whp or so. I think the typeII guys saw almost 9hp from removing our 3 CATS!

as someone also said, TypeII intake manifold comes to mind. maybe even port and polish the intake manifold while its off. EGR block plate might give u a HP or 2.

THere really isn't much for our cars, if u are feeling bold, you can get OBX headers, maybe LabRats Alumn light weight pulley's or a Blackend motorsports Damper.

you might also want to consider Nitrous, it might be the best boost, just be carefull and don't blow your motor!


BTW guys that looks like a USDM legend to me with HONDA badging. as it doesn't have EDM or JDM headlights nor fender turn signals...

¡Bienvenido a los forums! Yo soy Argentino, pero vivo en California. :)

It is very nice to see another Legend from another part of the world, South America even more intriguing! I wonder what the distribution of Legends around the world looks like.

As for your question, keep it OEM and simple. Cold Air Intake, Exhaust, and Suspension mods are all I have. Power is nice, but reliability and comfort are more important.

Cheers!

Are there many Legends in Venezuela? I travel to Peru alot and I've only seen one very beat up one there. I can imagine it's imposible to find parts there.

I'm curious how much gas is there too.

Let's see some more pictures.

You dont need back pressure. intake and exhaust will make the car breath better, but you'll need to get your ECU chipped to even notice a difference without all the noise... Once the fuel is burnt you want it out the car asap.

Is it a beige g2 sedan? First time I saw it was summer 2002 and it looked like it was in good condition. Everytime I go back I keep my eyes open, but never got see it again. I hope it's not that beat up you're talking about.

Y por favor ka7-venezula, mandanos algunas fotos de venezolanas que son precisosas!
