  1. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Picked up a 2006 RSX Type S that was wrecked on the front passenger side. Did some pretty good damage to the wheel and lower control arm. I decided to swap everything out on that side to be safe and have already swapped in a new subframe. The issue/questions I am running in to pertain to the...
  2. Honda S2000
    I'm not putting the Mercedes CLA as I know its a decent car down but he said he would have picked it over a new s2k had they both been new. Prices aside , what would you guys go with? He told me im blinded by being a tuner as I love the s2k.... and I said he like old folk cars like caddis and...
  3. Wheels & Tires
    First post, I just bought some 17x7 +43 rims for my 02 base RSX. It's lowered on some skunk2 springs until I get coilovers. I've looked around a lot online looking for the perfect size tire, even asking random people on instagram about their car but still don't know what I should go with. I know...

    Hey GUys, What other car shares the same front brake setup as the DC5 Base?
  9. Northern Cali
    Sorry there was no ASM this year because there was a lot of other meet going on during the summer. Well lets plan ahead for 2012 ASM starting now, so we can figure a when we will have it, location of the place, figure who needs to bring what for the pot luck/bbq, and possibly a raffle drawing...
  10. Turbo RSX
    I searched and couldn't find a whole lot of specific info on the topic. It seems like most people choose a GT3076 or GT35R turbo for their higher horsepower builds. But what about anyone looking for less horsepower, say around 350-400? I'm assuming a GT30 might be kinda laggy for 350HP? From...
  11. Engine Building & Design
    this is a conversation that i got from some of my friends on the chat we are having ; we were basically discussing and mostly wondering the durability/reliability/power gain of putting A2 cams and exhaust rocker assembly in an a3 head; to get a respectable power gain (theoretically around 30hp)...

  15. Auto Talk
    I currently drive a 99 GS and I'm looking at buying an RSX-S. I know opinions will be biased here but I just want to hear other thoughts. I'm not looking for comments on speed or power, I already know which one is faster. I just want to get ideas on reliability, driving ease/fun, interior...

  17. General RSX Discussion
    I was reading up on the K series motors and i found this. http://www.vtec.net/forums/one-message?message_id=174974 So it's common sense that the 02 Civic SI had the K20A3 same as the RSX Base model. That said the discussion about enhancing what the A3 is good at intrigued me. I just want to...

  20. Welding, Fabrication, & Tools
    Just wanted to start some discussion on aluminum welding. I have been playing around with a few different techniques lately. I was using the typical 100% argon and pure tungsten method but kept running into weld quality issues. The tungsten would ball too much and some would drop off at least...
