  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi, I just swapped my K20A2 (RSX S) cams out for K24A2 (TSX) cams. I got the crank on the timing mark, and I got the cams lined up and put the Honda tool into the holes on the pulse plates. Everything was lined up, and then I installed the timing chain tensioner and removed the pin from it. I...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I’m having a low frequency knock every .5 seconds at idle, it disappears above idle rpm and I’m stumped. Video here heard it could be the timing chain tensioner or the pulley, just wanting to get more advice. Thanks!
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    While handling the timing chain tensioner the pin I was using fell out and the sprocket fully extended. How do you reset or compress the tensioner? On YouTube, I have seen people reset tensioners for other cars using a screw driver.

    I hate this job. Follow instructions, damn pin falls out. Took an hour to get it compressed to get it out. It jumped 4 or 5 teeth, so off comes the valve cover--started hard as dummy me missed a bolt. What sucks is it all seems lined up, you snap the tensioner and find out different. Cams...

  6. The DIY Garage RSX
    I recently purchased a 03 Type-s and about 2mths later the alternator went out. Long story short I got the belt off (not completely) and was able to swap the alt’s. Putting the belt back on my 14mm wrench is just turning on the bolts head. I will get this replaced but right now I just need to...
  7. Engine Building & Design
    Hey guys. Ive got a fully built k20z1 for boost. I'm just getting a few things wrapped up here and my machinist needs me to get a new timing chain and tensioner. Just wondering if there's an after market timing chain and tensioner that would work better than oem.
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX If anyone can tell me by seeing this video that what needs to be replaced? The tensioner pulley or the whole thing to where pulley is attached? It's making squealing noises
  9. All Motor RSX
    I have a k20a3 and I'm planning on swapping in the a2 cams, rockers, and valve train. I saw a few threads that mentioned replacing the Timing Chain Tensioner with aftermarket cams. Yes, I know I don't technically have aftermarket cams but I have native cams to the a3 head. Should I purchase an...
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I have a 2002 RSX Base 5-speed, engine has about 108K miles. I started noticing a rattle noise coming from the tensioner and saw how much it moved during idle. Didn't check the arrow indicators but I'm pretty sure either the belt and/or the tensioner is going bad. So instead of guessing and...
  11. The DIY Garage RSX
    Hopefully this isn't a stupid question, but here we go. I was just wondering if I need to do anything before I change out the timing chain tensioner cover with the K-Series cover? I'm changing it because I believe its leaking oil and well it was relatively cheap and simple.
  12. Supercharger EP3
    Has anyone run the EP3 JRSC with the 4inch pulley, with the Honda modified stock tension system? Does it clear, or was there contact?
  13. The DIY Garage RSX
    Ok so my tensioner pulley bolt is pretty stripped up, but can still be moved back and for with the tensioner tool and a 14 socket that is six point. Anyhow I wanted to change out my Ac compressor but don't wanna risk not being able to pull that bolt loose and tight. Also I just bought a new oem...
