  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    alright so sometimes when my car is idling i can hear a faint sound that is similar to rain drops hitting a window or windshield, just not as audible. is this detonation? the speed of it parallels my rpms which is what worrys me. and if so what do i do about it? i know its not a good thing lol...
  2. Supercharger EP3
    I've seen sooo many turbo set-ups blowing up engines and ruin so many peoples hard work. I haven't seen on here anyone with a jrsc have any problems (from the few weeks I've been researching on here). Has anyone lost an engine due to these? They seem like a way safer route for me to go.
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Dealer can't help so I turn to the experts....... Strange noise coming from engine at 3400 rpm. It stops about 3600 rpm. I 've never heard 4 cylinder detonation to know what it sounds like only V-8's. I put some octane booster in to see if it would stop. Waste of $6.00. It does it at all...
  4. Turbo RSX
    Bliping CEL @ around 7500rpm or so. 3rd was WOT, backed off when I saw that...
  5. Supercharging RSX
    http://www.germanmotorcars.com/Detonation.htm ^^^ good stuff. EDIT: a 'general' section for forced induction would be neat -- that way things that are common to all are available in one place.
  6. Supercharging RSX
    Is there any amount of detonation that is "ok?" I'm still getting a little between 3500 and 5000 rpms and i can't seem to get rid of it no matter how much i lower the timing. I guess i need to start adding fuel. Any opinions.....
  7. ECU Tuning RSX
    I have had the MUgen ecu for quite a while now. I have heard knockin in the engine before, but just used a different station (highest octane in jamaica is 90), then i would occassionaly add octane booster. On race days i buy race 103 gas. I recently tuned out some power with the vafc2. BUt i...
  8. Supercharging RSX
    I have a huge detonation problem with I am flooring the car in high gears. I never really noticed it until my mechanic pointed it out last friday. What can I do to fix this issue? Obviously I can get the KPro and tune it but with the holidays coming up I am tight on money. Also I have already...
  9. All Motor RSX
    Hi guys, im from Asia and i have a Accord Euro R. i Know is not an RSX, but i thiught i might get help here. My car currently is experiencing detonation and i blame to the gas we have here since the octane Ron is 98 and the compression ratio on the K20 is 11.5 i can not find any gas with higher...
  10. Turbo RSX
    I've been having a lot of detonation/pre-ignition problems with my greddy kit the past few months, and I'm wondering what I should do about it. SO far i've just been running 91 pump gas and 10-40synthetic blend, and I'm using a custom intercooler set up, but the core is of decent size (16x2x12)...
  11. Turbo RSX
    I did a search already and couldn't find exactly what i was looking for. I have the JRSC race kit with the 7lb pulley. If i get on the car during the day or going up a big hill or onto the interstate, i hear a crackling, almost popping noise. I was told by a friend that it was the fuel...
  12. Turbo RSX
    Last night I took the car to a secluded place to test my babie out. 1st to 2nd gear everything looks, sounds and feels good. Now when I hit 3rd gear everything was good until I hit 7k rpm's. Just as I hit those rpm's I would hear these bursts of popping noises. It seemed that the noises were...
  13. Nitrous Oxide RSX
    I live in SoCal and the highest octane gas we can get is 91. I don't want the inconvenience of adding toluene or some other octane booster to the fuel every tank. If I only plan to run a 50 shot, do I need to worry about detonation? Would switching to colder plugs help reduce the risk, or do...
  14. Nitrous Oxide RSX
    Well.. you shoulda seen my stock plugs when they came out.. crispified with flecks of aluminum on them! :eek: All of that happened while running 93+ octane. :( I just put in the new denso plugs and 75 shot solenoids... and now I'm scared shitless to run the car. Even with race gas. Thoughts? I...
