  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Okay, so I currently have a 2002 Acura RSX Type-S. My engine blew and I don't have the money to find another k20a2 + labor to get it installed. My option right now that I am going for is to swap in a k20a3 into my car just to get it back on the road. From what I've read, it works, I just will...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
