  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys I just purchased a 05 type s with 83k miles a month or two ago. (4th owner) I am hearing a loud hissing or intake noise sound coming from the bay that sounds like a turbo. I hear it clear as day throughout any rpm range. When I press the clutch in and the rpms fall the noise dissipates...

    Ok so every once in a while when i start my car it sounds very choppy almost as if it had cams. Sometimes if i turn the car off and on the sound will go away. The sputtering can be heard at idle and when driving but it doesn't affect the idle. is it possibly the spark plugs?
  6. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I wanna get an exhaust for my base RSX, and I have found exhausts that I really like, but are only made for the type S. I have searched google and through these forums, but can't find one.

    I noticed this weird noise when I start my car sometimes, it sounds like a rush of air. Doesn't sound like grinding or rattling. Literally like a burst of air for a second and then it stops. Anyone know what it could be? It's starting to piss me off lol

    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...
