1993 Honda Prelude Si
Eric is a Maryland native, but currently calls Edwards Air Force Base in California home. Eric has discovered Turbo magazine and is really into tech and race coverage. His Prelude is a well executed street car that has been modified in most every area of performance. Under the hood a Matrix air intake system, DC Sports header and a custom exhaust featuring an Apex Universal muffler add power. Underneath the Honda sports a Skunk2 coilover kit utilizing KYB GR-2 struts. Front and rear strut braces from Advanced Concepts address lateral stability. Traction is also enhanced with Nitto NT-450 rubber and white Team Dynamic Monza wheels. The body flexes custom taillights and clear front and rear side markers. In the cabin Eric grips a Momo Top Power tiller and a Sparco shift knob. A five-inch Monster tach from Auto Meter is set-off nicely by the custom red dash.
Eric plans to up the ante with a stroker H22 or H23 with head work, built internals and an ECU upgrade. He reports that in Maryland what used to be a scene of Mustangs and mini truck has busted out in SoCal style imports. Cool.

1993 Honda Prelude Si
Dan the Man has put together a sweet Prelude by modifying every aspect of the car. Visually, the 'Lude is stunning, due to its Veilside body armor, clear lights all around and a set of trick 17-inch Konig Monsoon wheels. Under the hood the Honda breathes easier thanks to an RS*R cat-back exhaust system and an RS Akimoto Funnel Ram intake. Inside a silver-faced Auto Meter tach, GReddy turbo timer, Momo shift boot and Razo shift knob and pedals provide style and function. The Prelude is a daily driver worthy of a second look.
1993 Mazda MX-6
Rene is no stranger to the strip with his Mazda which relies on simple bolt-ons for its extra kick. The engine runs a Hot Shot Generation II header and Hot Shot intake along with NGK plug wires, a Sebring 2.5-inch cat-back exhaust system, Random Technology high-flow cat and dress up items like a polished valve cover, trick oil cap and Hose Techniques hoses. Power is directed to the pavement by a Centerforce Dual Friction clutch and Mickey Thompson ET Drag Slicks. On the street the Mazda runs radials mounted on Konig aluminum. An Erebuni body kit sets the MX-6 apart. The kit is joined by an Erebuni Combat rear wing and lazy eye conversion.
Inside a custom gray and satin white interior is home to leather seats, a 5-inch Auto Meter Monster tach, Razo shift knob and Razo pedal. The car runs consistent low 14s at the Battle in Palmdale, California and Street Legal Drag events at Pomona Raceway.
