  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So few days ago I blew my stock struts. I have my car lowered on Skunk2 springs and am surprised they lasted as long as they did. But now my rear struts are absolutely shot and I'm currently looking to get them replaced. My two options are either Koni Yellows which are adjustable and can...

    Hey all! Wondering if anyone else has experienced this before... Brand new OEM Honda CMC and slave, bled the system via gravity and went to take the car out for a spin, aside from the clutch grabbing at less than 1/2 inch from the floor, I heard a loud pop and then the clutch pedal felt like...

  4. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hey guys, just blew my CMC and saw that the rsx one and the triangular design is pretty flawed and that you should replace it with an em2 cmc. was just wondering, would I have to change the slaves too, or would it be okay to just replace the cmc only? also, has anyone heard of Sachs? Got a shop...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    This may not belong in the "problems' section, but i took my car in for a dyno tune and now my engine is smoking like crazy through the breather on the valve cover. So much that smoke comes out the hood when its idling and parked. This I believe is probably a piston ring. My real question is I...

  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have 2002 RSX TYPE S with 223K miles. The engine blew it over the weekend and the dealer said the block can’t be fixed, and they’re recommending a new or used engine. I have a third party warranty and they may be able to cover 60% of total cost. The dealer said the used engine will have 46K...
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys! So my head gasket blew about 4-5 days ago, and I let my friend check it and he said the best solution is to get a new block. However I'm pretty low on budget at the moment, and can't really afford a k20a2 engine block right now. I don't know what should I do. Should I swap a k24 into...
