  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I recently bought a 2006 rsx type s(I verified that the vin number is for a type s) but the motor code is K20a. I would automatically assume that it was a base motor shaped into a type s, but it still has a 6 speed gear box and VTEC switch over comes in very hard at 5800. I have had several...

  3. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    I know this topic is covered, but I haven't been able to find a thread that fits my situation. I recently purchased a Pioneer FH-X720BT Head Unit from Crutchfield. I want to keep the Bose amp, sub, etc. working. Crutchfield recommended that I get the Metra 95-7867 Dash Kit, Metra 70-1721...
  4. General RSX Discussion
    Hi y'all, first post...I just bought a 2003 base for my 15 yr/old son. It only came with 1 key and 1 FOB, and knowing my son like I do I thought it would be wise to at least get another key. I went to the dealer this morning and had another key made and the parts guy said it would only unlock...

  6. Lighting RSX
    So I recently got some eBay fog lights. I know there needs to be some "modifications" for these to work (without tapping the wires into another power source). I'm pretty determined to get these working, however there's a little confusion. I feel like this should be SUPER easy, yet I'm so far...
  7. ECU Tuning RSX
    So i've tried a couple of different basemaps for K20Z1 with CAI. The first is "2005 K20Z w CAI dyno Tuned" This one doesnt seem like it's set at all, and the filename says k20a2 so is it even for the Z? This one has a vtec window at 4600 and oil pressure enabled so it works. Then i tried...
  8. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    Okay i was using a double din JVC HU. I bought it from a crsx member before and he had it wired up on his type-s before so it saved me the headache without having to rewire the harness. It obviously plugged and played with the stock bose system and sub working fine. The thing is i'm confused is...

  11. ECU Tuning EP3
    Afternoon, Been researching and digging for solid answers to my questions on kpro. Hondata's site seems to offer little in the way of transparency, what do you get for your 995.00. The shop I'm working with says they do not offer dyno tuning, it's only for their personal cars, and I could be...
  12. ECU Tuning RSX
    I have an 05 type s and i know i need an 02-04 prb ecu to get modified for Kpro. I also know i need an 02-04 o2 sensor. My question is when i:confused: get the ecu and send it to hondata for them to modify it for Kpro to work in my car, do they do anything different than compared for an ecu for...
  13. ECU Tuning RSX

  16. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    so i searched and it seems that everybody is agreement that the secondary or down stream sensor is there to make sure there is a cat present and that it works properly. It seems to be that even in other forums its the same belief , btu every mechanic i have asked they tell me thats it does more...
