  1. ECU Tuning RSX
    I have star smog test to pass this may. My Rsx is turbo'd and a new smog regulation just passed. Now smog is run through obd2 and they check whether the computer has any mods/dtc codes. I asked around and I've been told that's it's pretty much impossible to pass a modded car now. If I return my...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX

  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So i've been the horrific victim of a mechanic shop essentially sabotaging my car. I've been dealing with appears to have simply been a failing clutch master cylinder. I went a shop that my friend works at to support a buddy. Long story short it was one of the worst decisions of my life. They...
  4. Buyer & Seller Disputes
    Recently I bought a set of coilovers from a crsx member. Before purchasing them, I was told that they were in good working order and have no issues whatsoever. A week ago I installed them and come to find that three of the four shocks are leaking today. I contact the seller (UBREAK_UBUY) and all...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I drove through a long, deep puddle with an Injen CAI. I killed the engine and coasted through the deepest part of it and after a little gas the car restarted. It seemed like a pretty big poof of white smoke came out for a second, but that was it. I had a few miles to go until I got home...

    Just did some digging, my landlord came to my house today and turns out he can't pay for the repairs to make his car pass smog. And turns out he can't "pass" at any regular smog shop now, he has to go to a STAR certified. And the repair cost on that car will be ridiculous! Seems you get...

    I was trying to replace my headlight bulb ('06) and snapped the plastic clip catch off of the case. :( I was trying to remove the clip away from the bulb like the manual says and on the first try, pop, there it goes. Do I need a new headlight? Has anyone fixed this? Is it common?

  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Well recently I was just messing with my a/c controls since I normally leave them alone on both up/lower settings, and moved the knob to just the lower setting. Except no air is coming out at the lower setting (as in at my feet not lower air power) but it continues to come out at the higher...

  19. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So earlier today, I went to get my stock exhaust welded because the resonator was sitting too low and there was a crack near the muffler. After they cut everything and welded everything together, they had to put it all back in place and put the resonator higher up. When this was being done, they...
