  1. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hello I recently got a quote from a performance shop about my base RSX. They said with adding an intake and racing DC header, I would gain about +6 HP. I was really expecting more (I already have a 2.5 inch custom exhaust) but does this seem correct? I read the sticky archives and it seems...
  2. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    so I'm supposed to be selling my miata this weekend, but i can't decide if i want to buy a 90s civic with the money. or buy kpro, cams, and a better intake manifold. i currently have I-H-E upgrades plus the hondata IM gasket. 1. so I'm curious how much hp could be had with a budget of...
  3. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey all, I'm new here. I have a 2002 stock base RSX that I'm in the process of ordering I/H/E for... But budget is a little tight. I'm planning on installing the exhaust and headers myself and was wondering if I could keep the stock cat and just do the headers and exhaust. Would that nullify...
  4. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey guys I'm new here, recently came into a 02 base model 5 speed RSX. I traded up from my terribly slow NA is300 so for the time being the 5 speed is pretty peppy in comparison. I have a greddy turbo kit, but I'm not sure of the reliability of a boosted base RSX, that's not really a popular...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So after smoke came out all the vents AC stopped working within 5 mins. Eventually get around to trying to charge the car, says its over charged, took longer than normal to release air before eventually building back into the red before successful Freon intake, any ideas? I was told maybe AC oil?

  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey all I did some research prior to the asking this question and found a thread that compared the itr header and dc race header. Although the dyno charts have been deleted. That thread stated that the dc race header produced about 7 to 8 more horsepower than the itr header. So can anyone tell...
  11. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I was having my RSX type S fixed at an Acura specialty shop, and I asked them what kind of cold air intake / short ram intake they recommend and the guy said that the stock intake on the RSX-S was as good as you can get. He says it takes air from the coldest place the intakes can reach and that...
  12. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey all, So I don't want to delete my cat converter. I was wondering if a shorty header and high flow cat would be a good option? Perhaps vibrant race headers with high flow cat? Any suggestions are appreciated!
  13. ECU Tuning RSX
    Hello, I was wondering what would the difference in HP/torque gains when using a reflash versus kpro with exhaust and CAI. I have no interest in boosting the car, changing cam shafts, or getting a new clutch. Is Kpro really worth the extra $700 plus the cost of a tune when only running exhaust...

I purchased a INJEN CAI and the GReddy SE exhaust system. I have the 2006 Type-S model completely stock right now. What kind of horsepower...
  16. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey guys I really love the sound of the Buddy Club pro spec exhaust. Im pretty sure its 2.5" piping. My friend says that I should find something with 3" piping for better gains with kpro because i plan on getting kpro in the future. I love the sound of this exhaust above all others but I will...
  17. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I was wondering if anyone has a dyno of their car with the Greddy Spectrum Elite Exhaust.. Just wondering what an estimate for the gains would be if I got this exhaust. If you link me a dyno, please tell me what other mods are on the car. Also, if they have a header that works especially well...
