  8. Turbo RSX
    Since I got the NSX I didn't drive the RSX much last summer but when I driving it I was having a boost issue. The car was tuned to 16 lbs, but now only boosts to 8 lbs and no more, haven't found any leaks. Only problem that my friends and I can see is my boost silinoid as its not properly...
  9. Turbo RSX
    I'm at that point where I'm considering boosting but the first thing that came to mind was 'shit, I own a fwd'. So my question is do any of you regret dropping the money into your car or would you rather have bought a different car worth like the value of your car + cost of turbo build...
  10. Turbo RSX
    I've got a K24A2 coming in soon, and I'd love to go turbo sometime in the future, but haven't found much on the forums about boosting the K24A2 stock (though a decent amount of threads/info on boosting with heavily built internals and lower compression). The only details I've seen are what I...

    I recently fixed my broken manifold gasket/exhaust leak the other day. Car drove great the past few days. Did my first 4th gear pull today and afterwards the turbo will not build boost. I assumed it was a charge pipe that came loose but i could not find any? I check the connections on all the...

    Well, I'm thinking about buying a used greddy kit for my base in the next two weeks, mainly for street use. Either that or coilovers, header, reflash and hondata IMG. It's already got a cai and 3" exhaust. Questions are, I've been looking around and have seen that things such as trannys...
