  1. Supercharging RSX
    just bought a JRSC and need to upgrade the stock clutch. i've read all the countless pages of 10 year old threads on clutch recommendations, and it seems (at least a while ago) that most guys go with a stage 2 for this level of boost. my desire is reliable clutch/trans operation, and...
  2. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hi guys, Sooooo I'm on the market to buy a front strut bar for my Rsx. The problem is, is that I have a dump tube (hood exit) is in the way. I have a k24a2. What front strut bar will clear to the front of the dump tube? I don't think the Mugen front will make it?

    I am located in Chestertown, MD 21620. My RSX needs trans work and every shop I talk to around here says they don't work on this particular car/trans. (5 speed base) So if anyone could refer me to a place that does good work for the right price let me know. Preferably not too far from me...
  4. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    So I have a 04 EP3 with HFP suspension I installed a while back. I just noticed one rear shock is leaking so it is probably time to start looking at replacements for all struts. I am looking at two options: replacing struts with Bilstein ones to keep the HFP springs setup, or replacing the...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've got a 2003 RSX and since I've had it, the compressor has been locked up and needed to be replaced. I'm finally about to do this with my friend but I'm not sure which compressor manufacture would be best. My friend (an experienced mechanic) said I should look at rock auto to buy a...
  6. All Motor RSX
    Hi Guys, You may have seen my prior posts - got my built K24/k20 putting down 269whp/217wtrq and it looks like my CC Stage 1.5 clutch is starting to go. That said - does anyone have recommendations for a clutch that will hold ~300whp/~250wtrq well and still be daily drivable?
