  1. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I have a stock 2002 RSX Type S, with no plans to mod. Its finally that time, to replace the clutch. I've searched here and on the web and have yet to find any long time reviews. Most post about OEM replacements aftermarket clutches have been fairly recent after they were installed. I'm...
  2. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I am in the market for the Ingals engine / torque damper and can pick up a used one for a great price. My question is how long do these things last? Do they wear out / lose their effectiveness after say 10,000 miles or so? What if the engine was putting out a lot of HP/TQ numbers the used one...

    trying to buy a used 02 RSX Type S with 180,000, when will the engine give out, 250,000. the ad says mostly female driven freeway miles. any input would be appreciated.
  4. All Motor RSX
    I just wanted to get some input on how long has/did the built bottom end last for those who are running aftermarket pistons (and probably rods) before they ran into any major problems requiring the motor to be torn apart. Mileage on the built bottom end would be great and details of the build...
  5. Auto X & Road Racing
    Howdy I was wondering for u track/autoX junkies out there with RCA's... any issue with it thus far? Ive read a post where a person has it installed, but only to have it develope plays after 1 autoX event (I believe it was Todd's RCA on an 05-06). Care to share your inputs?
  6. Lighting RSX
    Just wondering if the 55w kits from retro solutions don't tend to last as long as the 35w...assuming the 55w kit uses more power? Other than that... are there any downfalls of the 55w kit compared to the 35w kit? Thanks for the input, and have a good one.
  7. All Motor RSX
    i figured u guys in 'all motor' would b the most likely to have input on this skunk2 has their composite material fuel rail, supposedly reduces inlet fuel temp, and supposedly is ok for alcohol (i guess shows its strength) is this, (over normal aluminum rails), maybe a race application, where...
  8. Auto X & Road Racing
    Hey all. I'm co-driving an STS2 Miata in 2008. We're thinking about shaving some RE01-Rs but are worried about how long they'll last. We've heard from some people that shaving the new super hi-performance street tires results in basically R-Comp life. 80-100 runs. So, anybody have...
  9. All Motor RSX
    My next purchase for my 06 pwp -S is a race header.. dc Stainless or bcrh, energy suspesion motor mount inserts, and stock exhaust for awhile. How long have you guys been running this setup before any problems occurred, and what problems should I prepare myself for? My car is a daily driver...
  10. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I want to know from those who've owned either or both, the longevity of Coilovers and also the longevity of Aftermarket shocks / springs (such as KONI's with eibach sportlines for example). I'm well aware of the difference in handling capabilities between the 2 set ups, but I want to know which...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Have an 02 typs s that is one of the burners. Burns 3 or more quarts between 5K mi. oil changes. I passed on an offered ring job under warranty. A short block would have been better. I didnt want some pup at a dealer tearin my motor down the rings, ya know? But now that it's paid off and i want...
  12. Turbo RSX
    Okay, I am thinking about the CN Stage 1 /w guardian turbo kit in the future, just doing some research. I'm wondering, for those who have boosted their rsx/other cars before, around how much LESS the car will last. I want to see a consensus (sp) of what people think/know. However, I also know...
  13. Turbo RSX
    I am thinking of changing my AM plans and going with a JRSC...but i have a few questions...as far as reliability and longevity issues go, im going to say that AM is definately better than a SC....can anyone verify or oppose to that...also...if i went with a SC, i know tuning is very very...
  14. Car Care RSX
    I'm wondering what's the actual longevity of Zainos. I'm still currently using Meguiar's ; it's just hard for me to make the switch since I got so much of it. I really love how shiny it is. Even my mom who knows nothing about cars loves Meguiar's on her marroon 4runner. She's like it's so...
