  1. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    A few weeks ago, I went out to my car parked right in front of my apartment to see this: Apparently, thieves went through the effort of slicing a hole in my door in order to disable the alarm so that they could steal my Pioneer indash Nav/DVD. Obviously an aftermarket alarm system is on the...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Well it appears that someone tried to break into my car. There's a mark left from whatever he used to try to pry into my car and now the door doesn't want to seal properly causing a fair bit of wind noise. Any quick solution?

  6. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    i'm getting a new clutch/flywheel and was curious about the break in period, i've read anywhere between 300 and 800 miles. what do you guys recommend? and i'm assuming in town driving would be better. i need to get it broken in before the 28th (first autox) also would you recommend downshifting...

  10. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hey guys, new here :). I have an upgraded clutch/flywheel/LSD setup that I need to get installed on my 2006 S/Ced TSX. I'm also looking to add a K-Pro setup so I can (finally) tune my car properly. I found a shop (off the Hondata website) that can handle both the tranny work and the K-Pro...
  11. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    500 mile break in? Some clutches recomend a 500 mile break in. Hypothetically, I could install a clutch, get on the freeway, drive 500 miles and shift maybe 20 times. Or, I could drive 50 miles in the city, and shift a few hundred times. Is there a recomended number of shifts to break in a...

  15. Motorcycles
    I'm already past the break-in mileage on my bike but was wondering how many of you guys followed the manufacturer's recommendations? I've read a few articles that say that keeping the RPMs low during the break-in period will pay off in the end (engine life), but others that say you should give...
  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    well, i got a new clutch installed at acura, and no one ever told me about letting the clutch break in. i basically let it rip right from the start. my friend got a new clutch installed in his DC2, and he said he has to let it break in for 500 miles? is this true, that you have to let the...
  17. General RSX Discussion
    Yeah my rsx has 30 miles on it now. Everytime I step on gas, doesnt go that great. When I step on brakes really stiff. The steering wheel is also stiff. About how many miles till it gets " broken " in?
  18. General RSX Discussion
    I know the manual says about 600 miles but I've heard that you should go more before really kicking it. What did you all do?
  19. Supercharging RSX
    all - i know there is tons of controversy on which method is best for breaking in an engine...the hard method ( http://mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm ) and the easy method (run the engine easy for the first 1000 miles). so, since i just rebuilt my engine, i was wondering what i should do...
