Performance Moding    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-01-2005 04:01

I bought a Ridgeline a few months ago. I love the "thing". I am 39 years old and this is the first vehicle I have ever owned that actually has me enthusistic about playing around with it. Put some Chrome Wheels (20"s) on it and installed a few other add ons for the exterior. I am pretty happy with it's look now.

Now I am starting to think about playing around with some other stuff. For example Exaust mod, possible supercharger and/or other performance type mods.

My problem is this, I know absolutely nothing about these types of mods. Would most likely have to go to a shop to get done. I am in no hurry, so want to take a while and start looking into various websites and such to bookmark to start learning what playing might be possible with this thing that I can start forming up a plan to work on. I am sure some things will have to be done in a certain order and want to start thinking along thise lines.

I know this post is a little vague but, I have just recently taken an interest in playing around with things like this so please bear with me.

Anyway, I was hoping someone on here could possibly point me in the direction of some good websites I can use to see what types of stuff others are trying with their Ridgelines.

Thanks for any help you can kick out.

SEMA starts today and the Ridgeline apparently has a big presence there this year. I'd suggest waiting for a week or so as information comes out as to what people have done to modify them. We should have all the info here in a day-by-day update.

Will do and thanks,

I am pretty good at detailing but not mechanically inclined by any means.

Here is a link to what it looks like thus far.

This thing has boosted mt "car" enthusiam to the point that after 39 years I want to tweak "something", but have no idea as to what.. :-)

I am sure there will be some experience folks playing with it. I envision mine as more of a street toy. Definately not an off-road vehicle like my F-250. Wouldn't mind getting a little more HP out of it and a different sound. I'd love to be able to get it to a point that if I so desired, I could light up all four wheel but with that fancy AWD system I dunno if that can be done, at least not now.

Looking forward to playing with it though. I can manage to put about 4K a year toward tweaking this thing. need to start looking at various durections I could go. Looks like COMPTECH has some neat stuff under developement.

Heres a neat little addition for some subtle interior changes to a Ridgeline dash area. I already had this steering wheel change and painting of the related parts of the dash planned for mine a while back, but not using that bright a silver coloured paint.

Holy Cow. Man that thing sure is neat. I thought I was doing something by blowing about 5k on my Ridgeline. A makeover like that would likely go for a good 7K for the interior alone.

It's just a bunch of crappy plastic glued on with tape.
BS man. Maybe $300, and way over priced at that!
