urm... to install a CAI in the prelude, correct me if im wrong, but all you hvae to do is remove the resonater and that'll open up space for u to slide the CAI right in...
No, the intake could'nt possibly slide through that tiny hole left from the resonator tube, it has to be drilled out.

Why is the copper better than the iridium?

On Spark Plugs

http://www.babcox.com/editorial/ic/ic120214.htm
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
That should give you some good basic info on different types of spark plugs. While one can't definitively say that one specific type of spark plug is better than all comers, copper tends to be the best for most of our setups. For one, it is a wonderful conductor of heat, and has superior burn-off characteristics (resists fouling). I'm not gonna say for sure that copper produces a better spark, as I have no proof to back this up, but this is what I have heard from many people who have for more experience and knowledge than myself.

The advantages of platinum and iridium are mainly in longevity and reliability under extreme dynamic CR's and temperatures, such as those found on your typical turbocharged engine. I run iridium plugs on the SRT-4 for this very reason (and poet, I would definitely recommend continued use of iridium on your setup). H22's, on the other hand, don't tend to produce such extreme conditions, and copper will work fine. The main reason (and in fact, the only reason that I can actually verify) that Honda uses iridium plugs is to extend the service intervals of the vehicle, as having to change plugs less frequently is somehow supposed to represent a better engine (not true, but it works for marketing, how do you think S2k's get a 105k mi. interval?). Here is where the main advantage that I can see for copper comes into play, and that is cost. Copper plugs tend to be much cheaper than other types, making it far easier to justify changing them more often. A new plug will be better than an old, fouled one in any case, and this frequent changing of your plugs is probably the best advantage that copper plugs offer.

Overall, run what you want, as all types of plugs have different advantages and disadvantages, and spark plugs are a very misunderstood science by the average automotive enthusiast. I wish I knew more myself, but the fact is, there's not a whole lot of reliable, unbiased information out there on this subject. Regardless, I have found that copper tends to be the best for my current setup, do what you want for yours.

your doin it right, your cruise control might not work. when you push the CC button a green light should come on, and then when you push the set button on the steering wheel, a green cruise control light will show up by your gauges

it's not a strut bar, it mounts on the bolts that the rear seat belts use. i think it's just called a brace bar but not a hundred percent.

oil leak

it seems that i have an oil leak possibly from the valve cover area. there is a small spot in the front to the left of the header and there is a large spot behind the distibutor that goes down underneath the distributor. i just bought the car a few weeks ago and the oil was fine. today i checked it and there was none in there. does anyone know what this could be.
