  1. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    So I got my SuperPro bushings today and I'm not quite sure how to install them the "Front bush assembly" shows the orientation like I have it setup on the left. but the 2 pics I found of these installed (well one installed and one almost installed) had then arranged like I have on the right...
  2. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Just picked up a Type-S a few month ago and the previous owner had done the typical I/H/E mods, along with a cat delete. K-Pro is installed and after tuning it I'm probably getting around 215 HP or so. But I want more. So I'm curious what the next step would be. Should I go for a set of...
  3. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hiya, I have a 2004 RSX - manual, that I'm helping build and I need help trying to figure out how to make the turning circle of the car, smaller. I'm fairly learned in tech so I know my way around cars, except I drift and build 240s which are FR not FF so the steering and suspension is...

  5. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I installed an injen CAI in the winter for a little bit and took it off when I was trying to diagnose this delayed response after shifting gears. It's still present so it's not the CAI, but I will know within a few weeks anyway when the transmission comes out. I was lazy to take off the bumper...

  7. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I currently have 36k on my '06 Base-L RSX. Would I get any benefit removing the stock OEM plugs (NGK or Denso?) and replacing them with Laser Iridiums? The box markets them as giving better fuel economy, performance, and extended life. Anyone actually Dyno them or perceived a difference with...
  8. General RSX Discussion
    just thinking about the resale value of my car the other day. Does anyone think in a couple years a stock well cared for low mileage type s will have pretty good value? I figure by maybe 2012 enough of the type s will be modded to shit or crashed or have a ton of miles on it, maybe if i catch...
  9. Engine Building & Design
    I have an 06 K24A2 (full swap) in my Type-S as most of you know. I did a bunch of reading before I did the swap and I went with this setup because it sounded to be the best choice. A guy online told me though that if I swapped heads to the k20 head that I would be able to gain in RPMs? Now I...
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    So basically I have a '02 type-s and I'm getting like 22-23 mpg. Is there anything I can do to increase that? Driving tips or maybe changing something on my car?
  11. Canada East

  18. ECU Tuning RSX
    I figure there has to be an equestion to show this relationship (in ideal engine at least) which relates a % increase in fuel, to the approximate % increase in HP, if you assume same afr in both conditions. Anyone have any thoughts? I realize this would be a very rough approximation.
  19. Supercharging RSX
    I was on the supercharger.com website a little while ago. Looks like their prices went up. $3095 if you have Kpro. $3495 with ecu reflash. $3995 with Kpro. Damn. luvmyrsx
  20. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hey guys... About to take my first steps with suspension My goal with my suspension mods is not for looks and lowering can be a "side product" if necessary. I want the car to handle a a fair amount better than it does stock (or at least have some room for adjustment since factory cant be...
