Will the condition of the speakers affect the sound quality? Would like to know before I make...

    I had a blown head gasket and I took it to get it resurfaced. The machine shop guy said my head was 12000 warped. After getting it resurfaced, I've been trying to get my timing done and I'm not having any successful attempts with this. (Tried timing 4x already). Is milling messing up my timing?
  5. Turbo EP3
    Is seems I have more low end when it's least tension. It came with lots of tension on it and since I'm at least 3rd owner not sure if they were like me and played with it. Curious if maybe had more hard paper proof or tell me more what's going on beside performance change, essentially which...
  6. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Alright, I seem to be stuck in understanding the effects of preload on handling. Now I know while preloading a spring doesn't increase its spring rate by any means, Ive seen its been discussed that more preload = stiffer ride = which may mean less grip. So would a bit more preload on the rear...
  7. ECU Tuning RSX
    I tried searching but only came up with an unanswered post from 2005. My car battery went dead a week ago, I replaced same day after a few hours. Would a dead battery affect the settings on K Pro (or the map that was selected). Does it reset it somehow is what I'm getting at. Just want to make...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Car makes a clunk-clunk sound when making 90 degree sharp turns on hills, such as going up and down driveways. It's a consistent 2-clunk sound. Left turns are fine. Noticed the steering rod clips my after market headshield, making a metal-on-metal ting sound when hitting and releasing after...

    I'm supercharged Jrsc 11 psi tuned and my primary o2 sensor cel came on will this affect my car orshould I be straight since it's already tuned?
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey all, Saw an rsx a while back with the Mugen front bumper and I began to wonder whether the venting offers anything in the realm of performance gains (i.e., decreasing IAT's)? I found a thread that discusses this topic already...

AEM V2 Intake Skunk2 Intake Manifold Skunk2 70mm Throttle Body Skunk2 Fuel Rail Hondata IMG As you can tell I have only been upgrading the intake portion of the engine, mostly because I am torn between which exhaust setup I would like to use. I...
  12. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Just wondering if swapping gears is going to be worth it. I'd like to switch 1st to 3.062 out of Civic si, and 6th to .647 out of 08 accords. Then, final drive to 5.46. This way I figure I can get 107mph out of 4th for the strip. Is that enough? I run 102 mph now, how will increasing the gearing...
  13. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Well I have progress rear sway and progress coilovers right now set at about 1.6 F 1.4 Rear. I want to lower all sides by .5 in. How badly will this affect my handling? I know I read that lowering car below 1.5in reduces performance, my question is will I notice a significant difference for...

    I have a chance to buy a greddy cat back today. He said he used it for approx 20k miles. I shouldn't have any problem with it right?
  16. General RSX Discussion
    Do mods (such as DCRH) have any effect on how often you need to get an oil change done compared to if my car was bone stock?
  17. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    i had this problem where i have to steer to the left in order to keep the car straight but once i let go the steering wheel centers and the car pulls to the right instantly. a very knowledgeable mechanic that works on many lowered hondas told me that if caster is out of spec then it could affect...
  18. General RSX Discussion
    Hey guys, my neighbor backed into my rsx-s 05. Messed up the fender and took some paint off the bumper. Little scratch on the headlight, but thats about it. Just getting it fixed now, will Acura be able to deny me any possible warranty work in the future because of this??
  19. General RSX Discussion
    im sure none of us race someone with our A/C on, because we feel it kills some amount of power. is this true? if so, how much of a difference does it make having your a/c on when driving fast?
  20. Auto Talk
    I searched and found nothing on this topic. Just had a dyno run done recently and I run synthetic changing every 5k miles. When i did the dyno I already had 4k on the oil. I'm just curious if dirtier oil affects hp #'s What's your opinion?
