Hey all, I was just wondering what kinda Probe you all have, and what mods you have done to your cars! If anyone has pictures, post 'em here so we can all get a good idea on the car that your putting your hard work and time into!

As for me, I have a 1997 Probe (now SE) with the follwing mods,

-Dual White Racing Stripes w/Pin Stripes (Bumber to Bumber)
-Cherry Bomb Muffler w/racing Catalytic Convertor and exhaust
-Chrome Angle cut racing tip
-Chrome Outline molding on hood and doors
-Different Hubs (hey, their better then the HORRID factory hubs)
-Pilot 1055c 55w Fog Lights
-Sylvania Cool Blue 75w headlights
-Bosch Micro Edge Excel Wipers (Who cares?)
-Sony CA660X 52x4w CD player
-Crossfire TEK 100.2 400 watt amp

I haven't really started working on the engine yet, because right now I am working on her looks, but the engine work is very near! (plus I needed time to save money for the most expensive work at all......engine work!) That's the reason why I've been asking around for info on CAI.

My picture was taken like, a week after I bought my car, so VERY few of the mods are on her. Once I get new pics, I'll be sure to post them!

Oh and it does have the :nuts: driver mod. :D

Well like I have said before I own the "PO-BASE" or what my friend and I like to tall the PISSED OFF BASE.

My mods to the outside are very few if any.

Side marker lights
Konig Toxins, Nitto Tires
Circuit Pro Coil Overs
Clear corners (yes they make them for the base model)

The engine on the other hand is where my money has gone!

Akimoto Intake
NGK plugs
Strut tower brace
Fadanza 9lb flywheel, Viteck Stage IV four puck kevlar/carbonic clutch(soon to come:phelonic spacer for intake manifold, and throttle body spacer.)
Bosal header 4-2-1
Borla stainless steel cat back exhaust 2.5"
Aluminum Throttle body to MAF elbow
Diamond cut XENON lights HID conversion

Brake converstion from drum to disk.
PRD short shifter indiglo white faced gauges.

Thats about it for now, I'm sure i'm missing a few but oh well.

Lets see, I dont have that many mods, but I did start with a base and now its an SE. I changed the front bumper, the rear tail lights, antenna, the windows are tinted, added a cup holder/arm rest. Still waiting on the rims...not sure about the side skirts/door caps.

Well, this is my first post. I still don't quite have the hang of all this yet. This is what i drive.

1995 Probe SE 5spd.

K&N custom intake
Magnaflow Exaust w/o cat.
Pioneer 45x4W CD player
Halogen High Intensity foglamps
Hurst Billet shift knob
3A Racing Pedal Pads

I keep a "write-up" on my car, that discusses its history, modifications, etc. This is in preparation for trying to get sponsors or show or rag articles or whatever. . . . its handy to have around. . . For those of you who have done a great deal of work to your car, its good to have. . . presentation is everything. . . Thats probably why the "boring" Probes always seem to make it in the magazines.

Hey Five, I haven't really given up on the idea (I am going to do it eventually), but I'm looking more into getting 93-94 GT rims first (I have HUB CAPS right now.....HUB CAPS......LOL)

There are a few other external mods I'm looking into as well (Indigo gauges, Cruise Control, Sunroof, GT rear bumper), but rims really seem to top my list for now.

1993 Base-

- GT front end with shaved symbols
- 95+ GT rear bumper with shaved symbols
- PIAA 1400x foglights
- H4 conversion
- 95+ GT door panels
- GT wheels
- Intrax
- Brembo front cross drilled slotted rotors
- Stillen pads
- akamoto intake
- racing design dual mufflers
- jspec cam
- NGK plugs and wires
- PRD short shifter with MOMO knob
- PRD rear strut bar
- Freedom Design front strut bar
- PRD fan shoud cover and blue oil cap
- indiglo gauges with silver overlay
- sony head unit with 10 disc charger and sony EQ
- Kicker zx460 amp
- MTX black+Gold 10" sub
- Eclipse 6.5" all around

In the project stage:

- port n polish head and intake manifold
- side skirts
- rebby's gauge pod with APC indiglo tach and gauges
- and whatever else comes along that I feel like bumping money into.
