Possible upgrades for '04 SiR (Can)    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-08-2004 12:51

Hey guys,

I just wonder what I should do to get just a little more performance out of my '04 SiR without compromising comfort and warranty... It's a lease and I'm not sure how much you can do before dealer's get angry... Mostly, I would love more power, and I'd like to hear the engine a little more. Then again, I have this car because they're almost giving it away these days, meaning my budget is quite tight...

Any idea?

Thanks!

if you were planning to mod your car, you shouldn't have got a lease in the first place

but as long as you can give the car back to the dealership in it's original form, it's fine. that means you can only do mods that are not permenant.

you can probably change intakes kind of stuff, but if you want to change any part of the exhaust system, that's going to require welding work. so i don't think you can make the engine sound any louder unless you just take away the resonator under the hood

Gilbert may be able to comment better than me since he has a USDM Si, but I'll try to help. Please check the Exhaust Notes section for a couple of articles (more forthcoming) regarding Gilbert's Si and some parts he's installed on it.

Since your car is leased, I wouldn't recommend anything permanant, so bolt-ons are your only solace. I'd start with an intake, exhaust, and maybe header. None of these parts require permanent changes to the car.

Ryan
