  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi guys , so I have a 06 type s with 130k miles. Recently from ~2-3k rpm while in neutral or in gear there is a loud rattle coming from the chain side of the engine (on top). ive already removed the axle heat shield, exhaust manifold heat shield is not making noise and I have race headers so the...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hello Fam, This is a long story so I will try to stick to the basics. I did a k24/k20 swap in my car, painted the bay, installed a new wireworx wire harness among other things (roughly a year and a half ago now). Ever since this I have had a weird electrical problem that I have not been able...
  3. Wheels & Tires
    Hey, guys. Just wanna ask the wheel gurus here something. I'm currently on CE28Ns ; Fr. 17x9jj +15 Rr. 17x8.5jj +30 Wrapped in 225/45/R17 And I'm planning on changing to a set of TE37SLs 18x9.5jj +22 with 245/40/R18 all around. Just wondering if the offset would be perfect for my baby. I...
  4. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I'm about to have my transmission opened up in a week or so and I was planning on replacing my current 1st-2nd slider sleeve. Currently, I do not have any trouble going into 2nd, but since I'm also putting in a k24 bottom end, I just want the extra piece of mind of having a fresher slider...
  5. Car Audio & Security EP3
    Hey guys, Just lookin for some information from anyone else that has done an audio install in the EP3... how much did you feel the need to put in dynamat/hushmat/whatever? Was your priority just to fix rattles? Or did you want to kill road noise? Where are the places you focused on and why...
  6. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Figured I would start this for people looking to go low and some possible things to look out for. Also what setups have advantages/disadvantages as far as longevity, alignment, issues blah blah. Any opinions or things you should add go for it. Whats your setups? Suspension- Function form...

  8. Wheels & Tires
    so my bro is thinking about trading wheels with this who offered him. I thought I was pretty good at telling the difference between fakes and real wheels but this one is troubling me. here's my perceptions: Real Lug pattern axis seems right the design looks pretty close to me Fake Isn't the...
  9. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    hey well just installed tein ssp coil. So far i love how they handle but ive been going crazy on adjusting the dampening for these. I tried about every setting and cant figure out whats better for me. I dont autocross yet but lets just say im a agressive driver so i want it to handle perfect for...
  10. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    Heres what I got, the last couple of days I've been smelling a distinct electrical burning smell inside the cabin (03 type s), i checked around and found nothing so I thought nothing of it. The next day I'm driving with my radio on and all of a sudden I heard my subwoofer extremely loud and then...
  11. Auto X & Road Racing
    ok so i just got my buddyclub RSD's on and they have the upper pillowball mount. Right now i have it so i can adjust camber but if i unmount the upper mount and turn it one bolt hole i should be able to get it to adjust camber/caster correct? I would set it so the top of the strut would go as...
  12. Wheels & Tires
    Currently running stock 05-06 type-s wheels with BFG KDW's 225/45/17 tires. I am on Buddyclub N+ dampers. Someone wants to do a straight trade for his AP2 wheels he has on his EP3. I am really considering doing this. I really like those wheels and they are hard to come buy around here. I am...

  14. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey guys, I'm discussing selling an 02-04 Type S axle back to someone and I just have a question before we waste time; He's got a 06 Base, will the Type S axle back bolt right up to his Base mid pipe? Sorry if this info is available already I checked out the stickies quick but nothing like...
  15. Lighting RSX
    Anybody think they could rig up a burned out lamp indicator in the cabin? Obviously indicating exactly which light would be top notch, but I think that's a little ridiculous.. Just a little indicator light that came on when any exterior light burned out would be ideal.. ESPECIALLY headlights...
  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys,I just got my first CEL.Before I go thowing money at a shady mechanic,I would like to fix it myself if I can. P1298 I have been doing some reseach and this one sounds like the ELD in the fuse box is failing P1167 This one sounds like the primary o2 senser gone bad I do not know...
  17. Acura Integra
    So i had my clutch replaced with a OEM style exedy with a 9 lbs flywheel from ebay. Everything was good until like 2 days later when i had my car full with bros and groceries and i had this slipping problem. Dropped my bros and groceries off. Drop it around a few times and the slipping stopped...
  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Has anybody ever experienced cutout/ sputter from the engine, only under extreme cornering acceleration? My car is a 2002 DC5 Base RSX. 5 Speed. Stock engine, ecu, no mods to that except a type S muffler. SO this is the part that might help you figure it out. Hard cornering causes inconsistent...
