  1. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    ok so lemme start, i got an 05 base automatic and i absolutely love this car.. it’s my daily driver and i love the way the car feels but i would love to add more power to it just so i can merge/pass cars with ease or at least easier than it is now haha so with that being said, i have roughly...
  2. Member Show-Off EP3
    I bought my car back in March of 2012. Its been a great car for me. I had sold my lifted CR-V and I was on the hunt for another Honda. Found this car at a dealership and test drove it. I was never a huge fan of the EP3 but once I drove it I fell in love. I made an offer and I took it home! This...
  3. Wheels & Tires
    Ok... Dunno if I'm doing this right or not??? I'm kinda new to the rsx scene,I've had hondas since I was old enough to drive,but this is my first rsx. I traded my clean ek for this car and these rims were on it. The tires still have 90 percent tread, one rim has minimal curb rash,all have been...
  4. Auto X & Road Racing
    So, I am contemplating removing my power steering, but I want to hear the opinions of those of you who have driven on track (or in general) without power steering. If you have any experience with either of the following, please comment - thanks! a) No power steering at all, completely removed...

    NEW PICS PAGE 4 POST 91 Hey everyone I just wanted to show off my 2002 NHBP Base Auto. Also I'm wondering if there is anyone from Chester County,PA on this site. Thanks
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I notice that when i climb a hill with my car with pedal in the floor at arround 4200rpm, i would like to know if it could be the VTC who is too loose, cause on plane road i dont notice this lack.
  7. General RSX Discussion
    Ive noticed that people with parents who buy them cars or give them money to mod it seem to be looked down on. Why is that? Does having to work for everything you own make someone a better person or something? Why can't people whose parents are offering to buy them a car take advantage of that...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    ever since i bottomed out my car pretty badly 2 nites ago.. it seems as if my car has a lack of power, no pick up, and it doesn't sound the same anymore.. btw i have a aftermarket full cat exhaust... i looked under my car but nothing is bent.. i know it's scratched from cat all the way to...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    will it kill power? by oh lets say around 60hp. lol so i have a k24 frank that i built and dyno'd yesterday. well we have been tuning it for a few weeks now and the tune has been changing and jumping all over the place on its own. then i put it on the dyno yesterday and it only made 223hp and...
  10. Auto X & Road Racing
    I am having a very hard time obtaining front tire grip on take off, turns and corner exits. I was running: -2.2 Front camber 45psi Front 615 azenis Full soft Koni sports Stock sway bars front and rear. on my first event i tried 38psi all around and managed to get the car to oversteer. I...
  11. Auto X & Road Racing
    Yesterday was the first points event for my region and it was warm enough (mid 70s) to finally get some traction...or so I thought. I found that I had to let off during a lot of turns because my tires (Kumho MX 245/40/17) kept on squeeling. I understand that happens when I take a turn too hot...
  12. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    when cruising around on flat highway at ~60mph, i'm usually at ~2000rpm in 5th gear. but as soon as there is a small incline, the car slows down. i try to give it more gas but it just wont pick up. the rpms stay steady at ~2000rpms unless i go WOT. does this happen to any other base auto owners...
  13. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Is it just me or has any one else noticed the general lack of suspension "tuning" in the import world today. I mean, you see tons of cars with suspension modifications, be it springs, Springs + Dampers or "coilovers" or what have you. But I rarely find some one who's acutall put the time in...
  14. Turbo RSX
    So I'm reading through the August copy of Super Street that I picked up so I can be even less effective at work here on the weekends, and I get to their "ULTIMATE Turbo Kit Buyer's Guide" B.S. Not even the slightest mention of Cybernation for the K-Series. What the hell? I mean, obviously...
  15. Turbo RSX
    I read a lot of posts about how people are waiting on turbo / sc kits to become available, but they know that they never will buy them. Look at the small amount of turbo cars on the street (west coast excluded). i had a tc civic as my last car. It ran 12.97 @ 111mph. I had both the $$ and...
