  6. All Motor RSX
    This morning I went to the auto parts store and bought a compression tester . I was told that the motor I bought had 11.5 to 1 compression pistons. On all four cylinders the compression tester was pegged out at 300 psi. Does this sound right for a high compression motor or is this just a...
  7. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I previously had a Injen CAI and after a bad flash storm and a flash road flood under a bridge I water-locked my first engine. Needless to say I'm not going with a in-bumper cold air intake on my new engine setup. That said I've been trying to figure out the best intake filter location to get...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Long story short, my car lights would shut off suddenly when I was in high RPM. The battery light indicator would only turn on when this issue happened. I figured I was having alternator issues, so I replaced it. The battery light went away on initial start with the new alternator. However...

    Hey guys I recently took my car in for a smog and we'll it passed, but when I saw the numbers I see it barely passed on HC ppm. Last year though when I smog it the numbers were really low. Could you guys help me understand what could be going on? The highlighted pass was done in 2012 and...
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    After noticing some engine vibes and seeing some wear on the right side motor mount, I decided to replace it. I bought a cheap OEM replica on eBay thinking it woul just get me by until i bought a full Hasport kit. Waste of money. As you can see. the mount lasted less than a month and has...

    SWAY BAR PIC ON PAGE 4 Hey everyone! So I got the brand new Alpha series header by Skunk2 and I decided it would be a good idea to do a before and after dyno test to see what the header can do since it's brand new to the market. I got the header installed today at VIP Performance in Portland...
