raising

  1. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    ive got some gcs that are maxed out in the rear. the only reason i did this was i cannot raise the car any higher due to the spring isn't compressed and the perch wont spin freely. I could remove the bottom bolt and once the shock decompresses i can spin the ring freely but then once adjusted i...
  2. Problems & Solutions EP3
    Okay well a lot of you guys are going to think Im an idiot, but I need some help so I can actually know what I'm doing. I'm trying to raise my coilovers half an inch up front, so I started by loosening C . Then I was under the impression that to raise my coils, I use the spanner and go left to...

  4. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hey guys, I have Tein SS-P's on my car and I keep bottoming out and scraping my exhaust up while driving over speed bumps (I go very slowly over the bumps). I want to raise it a little so I don't bottom out. How do you raise the coilovers? Would I need to raise all of the Coilovers or just the...

    Im raising my 02 type S as far as I can. Tired of scraping the bodykit on speed bumps. Will I have to get it aligned after its raised?
  6. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    I'm looking at raising my car, ie. going back to OEM ride height and am wondering what suspension setup would be the best. I would like a suspension/alignment setup that is slightly more 'responsive' than OEM, but not auto x ready or anything. I bought the car lowered. Its down low enough that...

    I have an 03 type S kproed, and i notice that after sometimes when i get on my car WOT and then when i come to a stop, my car will raise and lower the idle automaticly, it fluctuates from 1k-2k probably around 10-15 times and then goes back to normal. is this something in the ecu to make the car...

  9. General RSX Discussion
    The weather in Boston has gotten cold lately and Monday it snowed a little. My car is slam right now. It needs to be raise back up for the snow. I want to set it at 2 fingers or two inches gap. Would that be good enough? I seen those 06 5 series beemers are hella low for a stock suspension, sexy...

    is there any way for me to make the seat higher? i'm not a big buy by any means... in fact, i'm a pretty small guy.. 120lbs at 5'9" and i feel low when i drive. i'd like to be able to get a better view of the road. the higher i can get them, the better. i wish i was taller so my head could be...
  11. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    ok my car is lowered 1 finger front and no gap back, camber, toe, and caster are within factory spec. Now, what will change if i raise the front/back half inch???
  12. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    is there an easy way of raising the car back up without having to take the whole assembly out? it is already at the highest position....can you slap on spring compressors with the assembly in place? gracias!

    I believe the OEM headgasket has 3 layers. I have heard people with B-series have taken out the middle layer from the headgaskets and raised their compression in that manner w/o consequences. Is this something that is safe to do? I don't want to spend another 60-70 bucks if I don't have to.
  14. ECU Tuning RSX
    Hey guys Knowing that our S makess the 200hp at 7900rpm. When we raise the redline to 8600, do we still keep making power after 7900 all the way to 8600, or it just dies down after 7900? Thx. Joe

  17. Turbo RSX
    I wanted to know if any turbo cars have a raised redline(8700). I'm planning to raise it to 8700 from 7900rpms, using the k-pro. I've seen threads about jrsc using the 8700 redline, which is why I dont think there would be a problem in doing this.

    i'm trying to learn more about N/A to decide if im going N/A or FI Will raising compression help performance dramatically? speaking about the base.
