    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Debating on possibly adding a LSD to my K20a3 transmission, currently a little over 100k mainly because the transmission is out as I'm doing the clutch/flywheel and I'm not entirely sure it's worth it for just daily driving but I'm researching just to cover my bases. I run 225/45/17 Toyo...

    Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey guys, I know none of these "mods" really add any hp or tq or any performance really, but aside from "hp gains" are these "mods" worth it? I have read through the base model mod thread and saw a few people mention the Buddy Club Racing Spec Condenser (grounding kit/voltage equalizer). I...
