    Setting up EPS in my 06. Can the VSS #1 power wire (Yellow/Red Stripe: A21) be tapped at the jumper harness to the switched 12 V (E9 Ig1) or does it need to be tapped at the connector on the tranny? I would like to avoid running a wire from the tranny to the jumper harness.

    I have just purchased a 2003 Base model RSX w/ 150k miles on it. I have owned probably 7 hondas my whole life. The noise is a constant repetitive "tap tap tap". It sounds to me like lifters that need adjustment but my mechanic said he didn't think that was it. He said it was noise from the...

    A couple of weeks ago I over revved going into third but I went into first instead. I have no idea how it happened. I shift smoothly and I don't shove it into gear. Anyway, I dropped the clutch pedal to the floor the instant I realized what I'd done. Everything seems fine. Throttle response and...

The engine starts and idles great, minimal noise, other than the injector ticking. However, when I rev the motor up to about 2k rpms, I get a louder more "metallic" type...
