pro hopper had a bolt in kit for hondas- acura's....check themOriginally posted by integraoligist@Sep 12 2005, 08:04 AM~3797200
I wanted to know if it's possible to put hydrolics on a '97 Acura Integra?
I see "kits" for air cags everywhere but no info on Hydros.
Why is that? because of the limited amount of space?

Check out our Euro Kits. Any of those will work for your car.

also, i hear that there is a lot more maintence with a Hydro setup and less "trust-worthy" for a daily driver rather then an Airbag setup, is this true?
I'm not starting a Hydro/Airbag war, i just want to know your thoughts on it.
Thanks again all!
I'm no expert on FWD mods so maybe somebody can confirm, but I've heard that the seals going on air cylinders is actually a chronic problem.Originally posted by integraoligist@Sep 12 2005, 10:39 AM~3798119
Plus they said because Cylinders are just metal cans, the only thing that can go wrong with them are the "seals", which usually never go bad. Where as with AirStruts, it's a Bag, and you can get holes, blowouts and so on.
Is this all true?
Thanks again for the help all, i really appreciate it!
really? I was told they hardly ever go out...Originally posted by Badass94Cad@Sep 12 2005, 12:42 PM~3798132

air cylinders are garbage...i know people that have had them and they had nothing but problems...bags are lower maintainence but it all depends on how you treat your car and setup that dictates how much wear and tear it takes... hydraulics are more of a preventive maintainence setup..if you change your seals before they blow you really dont have any problems...a unibody car will most likely have a low voltage setup and the components will last a long time... stuff really only starts breaking when you start clowning and upping the voltageOriginally posted by integraoligist@Sep 12 2005, 03:43 PM~3799242

seriously if you want to go fast, get a v8...Originally posted by mtb_rider04@Sep 12 2005, 05:47 PM~3799283

seriously if you want to go fast, get a v8...
some guy was just in town with pretty much one of the top dog ricers, a new lancer evo VIII with 400+ horsepower to the wheels, all wheel drive. he was talking all kinds of smack wanting to race anybody and everybody for money. another guy was like ok, let me give my friend a call. the next day his friend comes out with his 5.0 mustang. they race and the evo gets smoked hard. turns out the mustang was a 10 second car :biggrin: .
a v8 is simply a lot easier and cheaper to make "fast".
