    I cannot source the root of my smoking exhaust! At first I thought it was my Precision 6262 Journal Bearing failing. After sending the turbo in for a rebuild and bolting it backing up, I quickly realized that was not the problem...the car is still smoking. The color of the smoke is a...

    What's up guys. I own a 03 Base and I had the car sitting since late Oct and I just had the car shipped to me today. I couldn't get my mom to start her up regularly so it was only started up once and she barely let it run. After the car was dropped off to me, I let the car run for 20-30mins just...

A few days later after punching the car I noticed whiteish/blueish smoke was coming out of my...

    I just replaced the brake pads on all 4 corners (hawk ceramic). The front drivers caliper piston would not budge to go back into place with the brake pad spreader tool.

    Thoughts opinions biases all welcome. Thought about parting out my 04 DC5 selling it almost stock and picking up a black or red toyota xrunner. Reasons: 1) The rsx is a great car, but I may need to get something bigger for moving out in the near future (I live at home, so what, rent it cheap)...
