  1. Wheels & Tires
    I've been running RPF1 17 x 8 with 335 tires on all four corners of my RSX for a few years now. I daily and have been to the track a few times since the install. I also have a K24 bottom end installed - which also may use a different pulley and drive belt. My question: Does any one else run...
  2. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hi everyone, First like to start off by reviewing the eBay Spec D catback exhaust. Had it for a year and a half and now today finally (after numerous other problems in the past with this exhaust), the muffler not only ruptured with fiber glass strands coming out... but it's now completely...
  3. Engine Building & Design
    Like the title asks... I want to but higher compression pistons but was wondering if it's even worth worrying about upgrading pistons if I'm not punching the bore out a few mm bigger... Will I see any hp gains with raising compression on stock bore? Right now i have skunk2 manifold kelford b's...
  4. ECU Tuning RSX
    I plan on buying k pro and skunk2 manifold and larger throttle body at the same time and I'm wondering if I will be able to run a basemap until I can get a custom tune. My shop is abiut an hour away current mods are cai/rh/ex/Img.

  6. Wheels & Tires
    So I have been thinking about changing my type s 03 5 spokes 16" i believe to 17. My problem is that for every 16 mph my speedometer should theoretically be 1 mph behind actual speed... unless my math is off. I know one solution is to get tires thinner than standards but lets say I didn't. Is...
  7. All Motor RSX
    Hi. I've got an N/A 2003 RSX Type-S. I'm contemplating upgrading my stock throttle body (I think it's 62mm) to a 70 or 74mm and port matching it to my intake manifold. Is it really worth the money performance-wise to do this, or does it only net a small gain? I don't wanna spend $450+ for...
  8. Auto Talk
    Would you trade your RSX for a Mazdaspeed 3 or an IS300? Or have a yr left on the loan to pay it off, considering keeping it and paying it off and then getting something bigger. There are other options but those are what I have been focusing on right now. Any suggestions to help the thought...
  9. Wheels & Tires
    Hi guys, I'm looking to get new summer tires for my Type S. I already have a set of 18" wheels and just need tires. I used the tire selector on Canadian Tire's website (I'm in Canada obviously) and when I choose a different diameter wheel (i.e. 18" rather than stock 16") the dimensions that the...
  10. Want To Buy or Trade RSX
    Like the title says I would like to get a new set of injectors. I would really like to get the factory 410 or something a little larger with clips.
  11. ECU Tuning RSX
    Anybody try the gear comp when increasing size of their wheels? I just put on some big wheels (245/40r18) and had to retune my calibration slightly richer and increase my idle due to increased engine bogging i was wondering if i needed to retune the gear comp screen for slightly taller...
  12. All Motor RSX
    I was wondering if there is any difference in powerband or hp when running a larger diameter CAI intake pipe?? I have seen some swaps running larger diameter intake pipes along with a larger throttlebody.

  14. General RSX Discussion
    I know the rear wiper blade is stock 20 inches. Im thinking of going a little larger - maybe 22 or 23 for more cleaning coverage. Anyone ever do this .......any suggestions.

  16. Wheels & Tires
    I recently changed the stock 205/55R16 Michelins and 16x6.5 rims on my '04 base to 225/45R17 Generals Exclaim UHP mounted on 17x7 '05 type S rims. The ride with the new tires is fine. However, I noticed that my mpg has dropped. Before, I used to get 30-32mpg, now it's only 26-27 mpg. Is such...
  17. Supercharging RSX
    im currently thinking about supercharging my 04 type s and was wondering if a larger throttle body could benefit it in any way.....as i've heard that it helps with turbo and all motor builds also...so i thought id ask and see if anyone has changed theirs and if so where there any gains???
  18. Supercharging RSX
    Right now the major bottleneck in my exhaust is the stock 05/ITR catback. I was looking at getting a T1R 63mm Bpipe to eliminate that. I am running a Jrrh and hiflow cat as well. Would the 63mm exhaust help even though it is going through the stock 05 muffler? I tried searching... But no one has...
  19. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I was just in a debate with a co-worker of mine about what is better for a typical autocross. Mainly, we were talking about what would be the better to jump to for racing: 15-in or 17-in? Obviously, you want to reduce the side profile to an acceptable size, and you want as much thickness as...
