  1. Temperature knob not linear in increasing temps...Normal?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    hello all i just acquired an 06 rsx-s. I dont get hot hot heat until i have the knob dialed near all the way to the right or 82f and then it still takes prob 20-30 secs for the hot hot air to come on. I do feel the cold air getting less cold as i gradually turn the knob right but the temp...
  2. increasing little boost without tune?

    ECU Tuning RSX
    I am currently making 270whp at 8 psi it was dyno tuned. I want to adjust the boost controller to make it 10 psi. Does kpro automatically calibrate maps somewhat if the boost is a little higher? I wonder because I have seen people who simply increase the boost by 5 psi (not on rsx) and they...
  3. Increasing to 12.5 Compression...

    All Motor RSX
    As I sit right now my head is fully built and I'm about to start on the bottom end. To get to 12.5 will I need to change out the shaft and bearings or will rods and pistons be enough on a K20z1 bottom?

    Suspension & Brakes RSX
    FS: Superpro LCA caster increasing bushings Just like the title says, I have a set of brand new Superpro poly LCA caster increase bushings. They're little over $200 retail, plus takes forever to get them here in the US. Price is $200 firm. Edit: Sold!
  7. Increasing traction in first gear

    Supercharging RSX
    Turbo RSX's use boost by gear to decrease the power in lower gears to aid in traction. Supercharged RSX's can not use the same boost by gear because we have a different bypass valve than what turbos use. A dual sided bypass valve can be used as Highrev1 mentioned, but so far none have been...

    Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Well I talked to Fade2black on where to get these since a few people (including myself) were interested in these and couldn't figure out where to purchase them. He said he'd have a handful of sets produced of the caster increasing spherical bearings if we could get a group buy going...

    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I did an analysis on the effect of increasing your final drive ratio. Of course, changing you final drive does not increase the power of the engine but your torque can be multiplied more before reaching the ground. This is a simulation that shows what the car will "feel" like with the new...

  12. Increasing Boost???

    Turbo RSX
    I have read a few threads about increasing boost by adjusting the actuating arm on a GReddy turbo. Do you adjust the arm tighter (clockwise) or looser (counter clockwise) to increase boost? And is it 1 turn =1 lbs of boost?

    Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Has anyone had a problem with the mugen 25mm rear sway bar increasing the negative camber of the rear wheels? I've installed it properly and torqued it to the proper specs but the camber looks more aggressive. I also have mugen ss properly installed and aligned with out camber kits. Worse...

    I'd like to increase the ride height, you know, not feel like I'm riding on planks. I'm on tein-ss's right now, and just wondering, if I increase the ride height by something like 1/2 inch, will it be that much smoother? <---- susp. n00b

    Hey all: i would like to incrase the ride height on my tein ss. I don't want to be that low, and was thinking of going up about .75 inches higher. (I don't want to worry about scraping anymore) Anyone do this? Any tips on making sure that front and rear are at the same height?

    Ok, recently the Fed-Ex man showed up at my door with my Spoon DC5 head gasket, supposedly good for a 0.2 increase in compression ratio. this should bring my CR to 9.7:1 vs stock 9.5:1. so this is my question, right now i have 1 stage colder Denso iridiums (hard starts, much colder engine temps...

    Turbo RSX
    Anyone know of any way to increase the torque on the Type-S? I realize it's not out yet, but maybe from experience with the GS-R/Type-R or something.
