    Easy to screw up these cars?

    Hey, I'm lookin to buy a new Rex in a few months. I'm new to these cars and to modding. I'd like to do some basic mods (exhaust, boost control, BOV, etc) but am a little afraid because it will be a learning experience for me. Just wondering, is it easy to destroy parts doin these types of things if you get it wrong? Im easy on my cars driving wise and always keep up on maintenance. I won't push it till I know its ok to

    Maybe your first step should be searching a bit and looking at the stickies...definitely look up BOV and boost controlers. You might be surprised at what you find.

    I've been doin some diggin in these forums for a while. I'm understanding some of what it takes to accomplish these things but can't really grasp how touchy it is before I try myself. Don't wanna get in over my head thinkin it doesn't sound too hard and then blow up then engine when i test it.

    If you plan on putting a boost controller and a BOV on the car, then yes, they're easy to screw up.

    Because if you were going to blow up a car, I'd rather have it be a Honda!

    By all means you're correct, I'm not trying to pre-blame the car for anything. Just wondering how touchy these mods are And, yes, I'd rather blow up a Honda too lol. That's not hard to do. If I had the money I'd buy one to practice on. Thx for the replies
