  1. ECU Tuning RSX
    Hello all, looking for a little advice. I bought kpro and currently only have fujita cai and magnaflow 2.25 catback. My plan was to run the k20a2 cai dyno tuned kal until picking up RH in the near future under the notion from other folks on here using it with no problems especially with a...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Not sure if this should be in lighting or not but here goes: I've read the manual on headlight aiming and all that but still not sure if my cutoff is high or not. I've never been flashed at but I feel like the right side headlight is way off. Anyone else getting a similar beam pattern or do I...

    Hi all, i just wanted to throw up some pics of the light output of my newly installed projectors with a Xenon Depot 6500K Volt HID setup (35w) and get some opinions... does it seem like they need to be angled down a bit? also, notice those two dead strips going straight out? is that something i...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So i was driving home tonight, and i was pulling onto the highway and my car hit 5500 and it cut off power, completely out of the blue. Earlier in the day it had hit vtec just fine, all the way up to redline. So I slowed down when I was driving down the highway, and shifted down into 2nd just...

This is a step by step on how to modify your OEM and aftermarket fog light system so that you can turn on the fog lights w/ switch with running/park lights on. as well as keeping...

  7. ECU Tuning RSX
    So I have a 05-06 kpro and I'm having the "rough" part throttle problem. Its pretty rough when I let off the throttle and slightly pressing it (tip in?). I have been reading for awhile now and have disabled fuel overrun cutoff, set low cam overrun cutoff to 15 for all values (advanced tab)...
  8. Lighting RSX
    Let me preface this by saying yes I know what I was buying when I got these ebay projectors. I know the quality will never be akin to OEM projectors but I'm hoping I can improve them a bit. here's what they look like now: there is a bit of upper glare thanks to the shitty projectors but im not...

    So i just got done aiming the headlights, i would like to know from the retro gurus how the cutoff looks, im wondering if something is wrong with the flares?

    I installed my lights in my driveway, which is on a bit of a hill. I forgot to take that into account when I put them on.:shakehead When I drive I it is ovious that I aimed them way to low. Is there a simple way to turn them more upward, or am I going to have to take off the bumper and fix it...

    Go ahead and flame me, but this was my first new car, and I wanted to find a cheap way to make it loud. (I keep it capped 99% of the time) But this is what i want to know. And give me honest answers, not the: you-got-a-cut-of-your-gay answer. Does the cut off affect performance: If so: positive...

    I installed these badboys in my car last night and I have to say the color is perfect:thumbsup: :cool: ... maybe a little bluer but they'll warm up. My problem is that i am a drumbass and i broke the x-clip so i kinda just put them in there as snug as I could. They look fine no blinding glare...
  14. Lighting RSX
    Well after debating on XenonDepot and Mcculoch, I decided to go with the more trusted components and got the Philips instead. Initial Impression was Whoa, so awesome. The cutoff line on the 05 type S is pretty sharp with minimal glare, I parked my car and drove around the block in my dad's truck...

    I am going to be installing a fuel cutoff switch in my friends 2005 RSX-S tomorrow night. I did a search and found a wire diagram that didn't really help. Can someone please tell me the proper color of the wire I will be installing the switch on? Thanks...
  16. ECU Tuning RSX
    I bought my RSX Type-S about a month and a half ago from a dealer in Cincinnati. It is a 2002. I have only really had a chance to wind it out through the first 3 gears once or twice, and on a poor shift from 2nd to 3rd today I noticed that the fuel cutoff is way above 8000. Probably in the...
  17. Lighting RSX
    Hello: Since I am seriously considering an RSX for the near future, and have been posting little by little here, I have a question pertaining to HID systems. Does anyone know if Xenon Depot or any other store that has just H1 HID bulbs that include a cutoff shield? I got a Hella H4 HID kit on...
  18. Lighting RSX
    Aside from looking cool against a garage door and also being less likely to get pulled over, is the cutoff that you look for when doing retros really necessary? Aside from the possibility of blinding oncoming and/or other people's rearview mirror, is there any other reason I'd want to have a...
  19. Nitrous Oxide RSX
    Since the previous thread was closed, I'd like to add my 2 cents worth on this. Rule #1, you don't EVER spray into a fuel-cutoff rev limiter if you like your motor. The proper thing to do is either get a window switch with a lower cut-off, or do what I did (don't know if it's possible with the...
