  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I bought a 2002 RSX BASE and it had a high fluctuating idle problem which was fixed by cleaning the IACV. The only thing is it still has a high idle which usually sticks at 2000 rpm. when i am driving and i hit a speed that matches the 2000 rpm the car jumps really bad untill i either slow down...

  3. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I have an '06 Type-S with the A-Spec suspension on it. It now has about 40k miles on it and has gotten a bit soft over those miles, but nothing too drastic (the A-spec were softer than I had hoped for even when new). I have Fuzion HRi tires (better than expected to be honest, especially for...
  4. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey folks, I recently picked up a clean low milage '04 RSX. I've been lurking on this site over the past month on performance, doing a lot of reading, and not sure what conclusion to draw from all the tons of opinions. I'm looking to gain some more street fun midrange power. I've been around...

    Ok so I have a Kenwood x990 that I'm trying to use with my iPhone 3GS. I know that somewhere around the 3G model, Apple switched from 12V firewire to 5V USB power sources necessitating a charge converter, in my case, the Scosche Passport So, to get my iphone to work my connections look like...
  9. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I've been here last night doing searches and all looking for the right answer, but just couldn't find them. I'm on the fence whether or not to purchase an Ingalls "stiffy" Torque damper, or just purchase the Innovative 60A motor mounts. I want to know what people think of the Ingalls Torque...
  10. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I had a stage II clutch/8 lb flywheel installed by my dealer as an addition to them fixing my gear grinds. They replaced 1-2 and 3-4 gearsets so I figured in saving on labor costs I'd just have them upgrade the oem clutch/flywheel (99k on the car), which inevitably needed to be fixed sooner or...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Sup fellas, thanks for looking. I bet no one has had this problem before! Here's the problem: Did a compression test on my '93 integra. It turns out that the adapter (the thing that actually screws into the spark plug hole) that attaches to the end of the hose was left threaded into the spark...
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I bought my 2005 RSX Type S as a certified pre-owned vehicle. It has been running great for about 6 months. Then a check engine light came on and I took it to the dealership to check it out (under warranty I assumed). They diagnosed it as a P0304, cylinder 4 misfire, reset the light and told...
