History
What if Honda built an Odyssey Type R? I've been a fan of the RL1 bodystyle since i bought my civic si in 2000. Then when the ep3 hatch came out i couldn't help but make the comparison...
So, why not the ep3 type r's bigger cousin? What would an ody-R look like? Drawing on classic styling cues from the ek9, ep3, and dc5 type r's, here is my humble attempt to answer that question.
2002 Honda Odyssey EX (Taffeta White)

Modifications

Drivetrain
"custom" short ram intake (lol @ my ghettofabulous cone filter dangling off the end of the factory intake tube);
optima red top, magnefine filter, tru-cool 4452 coming soon
Interior
Took the seats out the day i brought it home. Its my work van, so its usually full of tools and junk. Mostly junk, now that i think of it, lol.
Exterior
Gunmetal/black headlight housings w/city lights & smoked reflectors;
Smoked amber section of taillights;
Color-matched white grill surround & rear hatch spoiler;
Gunmetal "H" emblems, debagded odyssey emblem from rear, shorty antenna
Super strong, super low-profile, super cheap roof rack, thanks guys :)


Future Plans include but are not limited to:
yellow fogs, oem jdm sidemarkers, color-matched dc5 type r lip & oem sideskirts, mesh upper and lower grills with 05-06 dc5-style floating red H, tint the front windows, and maybe do something involving the butt of an mdx ;)... Oh, and a jdm lagreat badge of course...
Audio
Pioneer 6.5"s in the front doors, oem front speakers moved to the back. Much clearer, but needs bass desperately.

Thinking a fosgate prime r2 slim-mount (3.5" depth) 10 inch sub in a custom underseat enclosure, a la pioneer ts-swx251. Small 250w mono amp under the passenger seat.
Wheel and Tire
19's coming soon: http://www.odyclub.com/forums/31-polls/155104-what-color-should-i-paint-these-19s.html

Definitely needs the altitude adjustment before i mount them. And maybe the oem mini fender flare guards (honda part #08P21-S0X-100), color-matched white of course :)
