  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Installed new hood but find the rear corners are sitting about 1/2"-5/8" below the top of the fenders. See photos attached. The front seems to line up ok at the lights and grill. The old hood sat the same way. I thought maybe the corners were bent but new hood is the same. Is there a spacer or...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I recently inherited a 2002 Acura RSX from a family member of mine and noticed that the mileage is horrible. I am averaging about 300km on a full tank and this is roughly what I have been getting over the past three months. I had a exhaust leak that I recently got fixed but the leak was after...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, First, 2002 Type-S, 169k, basically all stock. Intake and exhaust no Kpro or anything like that. So last fall, I was participating in an autocross event, when sudden downpour ensued mid-run. By the time I crossed the timing light, the red flags were out and the rest of the night was...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hello, This problem is for a 2006 CR-V (k24) but I figure it's similar enough to the RSX, especially the engine and ecu. I've been getting poor MPG even though I drive VERY conservative. My mechanic said it might be running rich if the thermostat is stuck open. I used my obd2 to check and it...
  5. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I know how I want to build my base but I was hoping to get a second set of eyes on this situation :pray: Trying to confirm my parts list and order all the necessary supporting modifications while hunting down a decent shape and priced K24a1 (not so easy to do in northern Canada :( ) If you have...

    Hey guys, recently picked up an 06 Type S....I will give you a rundown of what is done. Skunk2 intake manifold, hybrid racing 74mm tb, buddy club header, skunk2 exhaust, aem cai, and kpro Now since I had the car (which has only been about 2 weeks) I have noticed an intermittent idle surge...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I recently bought my first rsx, an 06 type s. Im gonna start this off by saying i dont know too much about cars haha. But i had my friend who knows a good amount take it for a ride the other night, and he said it seemed like the clutch was slipping a little bit, as well as something in the...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    In the past couple of months I completed a mild n/a build for my 04 rsx-s. I did have my car tuned and it ran fine after that albeit a little more rich than before. However there was one thing that we did notice while the car was on the dyno, when the tuner let off the gas after a WOT pull the...

  10. Southern California For Sale: Local Pick-Up
    Got a OEM NBP laying around, that don't need anymore. The condition is poor, heavily oxidation and I think the clear coat is gone. Perfect for repaint or to do something special. It's straight and no dents or cracks, sits flush with the body. also have a lot of rock chips asking only 50 obo
  11. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I'm having exhaust put on. I bought a 2.5 cheap tip. 2.5 seems about the right sizing to me, but my question is, will it be ricey and high pitch? I plan on making a o2 sensor sim, dc race header, and i also would like to know if it would be better to run a resonator, or a test pipe for my...
  12. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S

  13. Problems & Solutions EP3
    I just brought 03 civic si. I know this has been posted many times and I did search. So here what I did so far. I threw out the Megan Racing exhaust and brought an used stock catback. Then I changed out two front struts with tokico blue. Then I put in AEM V2 intake. Then I do spark plugs, oil...

    This is my car. I hate it. The front end looks as if it's been sand blasted. I've hit my front lip on more objects than I can count. Fender liners have become a "wear and tear" item on this car and my brand new crate tranny has been rattling away since the day it went in. As she...

  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an 06 rsx base that has roughly 59,000 miles on it and is a 5 speed. The car is stock and runs great but I noticed that if I punch it there is a severe throttle hesitation. It feels like electronic throttle delay or another way to describe it is that it feel like a leaking clutch master...
