  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I ran into a bit of a problem. I am leaving for a car show tomorrow and the battery that I had in the car had expanded to the point where it looked like it would explode. I replaced it with my brother's odyssey pc680 (which had been sitting for 2 years), jumped the car, drove it for 20...

  3. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    The title says it all. For the guys running the ARC boxes, do you know of any alternative filters? K&N? FRAM? Custom? Part numbers preferably. Incase you consider bashing me lol, I don't care for the uber cool filters that read "ARC" on them. Now that they are falling apart, I just need...

    06 Type S: OEM fog lamp bulbs (H11) are burning the protective film on the lenses. Anyone know of an alternative bulb that burns cooler? LED? Thanks for responding.
  5. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I'm looking into getting a shorty header and high-flow cat setup for my 03 Type S, as I want to remain legal and have no problem passing emissions. The Random Technology high flow cat seems to be a very popular, solid choice for our cars but costs almost $500 new. I'm wondering if anyone has...

  7. The DIY Garage RSX
    Owned a RSX for a few months now, one of the 1st mods I did was replacing the Odyssey Battery that came installed. Not long after I got the car the battery went caput and as I did research I've heard bad reviews of cold killing the standard PC680 Odyssey. I live in the northwest it gets cold and...
  8. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Anyone know what I can get to replace the stock silencer from this exhaust (Skunk2 megapower)? I saw something like a black funnel a long time ago but didn't look much into it. I want something to replace the silencer so that the exhaust doesn't have a tiny pee whole lol. Any ideas? btw...
  9. Interior Mods RSX
    I was wondering if anyone has ideas as to what I could use to cover the gap where my passenger airbag used to be? Basically, I took my airbag out and I'm trying to cover that hole with a cover of some sort. Unless someone is selling only the airbag cover.

    I was doing some googling etc. Has anyone installed fender spacers on thier rsx before to give more clearance between the guard and aggrsive offset wheels?
  14. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Just to preface this question, I know quite a bit about suspension design/tuning. I'm looking more for first hand experience with the monotube dampers that come in the Skunk2 Pro-S kit. My RSX is my daily driver, and the stock dampers at 80k miles are done for. Therefore I'm looking for a way...
  15. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey all, So I don't want to delete my cat converter. I was wondering if a shorty header and high flow cat would be a good option? Perhaps vibrant race headers with high flow cat? Any suggestions are appreciated!
  16. Supercharging RSX
    Sigh, so long story short I bought an 02-04 jrsc kit for my 05-06 and just realized that it doesn't come with a MAP sensor relocator - my fault for not reading my PM's more closely. Anyways, I had originally set aside this coming weekend to install it as I may not have another free weekend for...

    Hey guys! Its been a while since I've last posted on CRSX but i have a quick question for you guys out there that are currently using a Mishimoto radiator... I was wondering if any of you guys could confirm with me if another OEM or alternative radiator cap would work with the Mishimoto...
  20. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    So I was looking around for a cheap Alternative for Dyna Mat for a while now because my subs rattle the hell out of my trunk (why i put it in the car audio section) and it sounds horrible outside. While I was at lowes to day I saw some stuff called Peel and Seal. I googled it while I was there...
