  1. New Member Introduction RSX
    What's up guys? On Wednesday I will be picking up my new car, a clean 04 RSX Type-S with 108k mi. The car is all stock except for an AEM intake. I'm excited to pick it up! I don't have any immediate plans to do anything to it aside from debadging (original owner put integra Type-R and A-Spec...
  2. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I'm about to freshen up my suspension and was considering the hardrace hardened rubber bushings, but I can't find anyone who has run them for any meaningful amount of time. Has anyone here had experience with these bushings, and if so are they durable, quiet, and worth the investment? Thanks!

  6. General RSX Discussion
    Wondering if I could pick the brains of someone who has kept there RSX in storage before. I'm getting ready to leave for deployment soon and was wondering on what I should expect as far as having to get the car back up to speed again when I return. It's an 02 DSM with 145k on it. I was going to...
  7. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    Hey, I just wanted to see if anyone out there with the energy suspension master kit has any long term impressions. I have had no issues with the perfomance myself and I've had them in for about a year. I have noticed that my car squeeks like crazy when going at slow speeds over speed bumps...
  8. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Mornin' everyone, On my search for an aftermarket setup of mounts, it does seem like the Hardracing setup will be best for me. No mods, but do enjoy the ocassional "drive the hell out of it" and would love to get rid of the wheel hop. Two Questions: 1. Has anyone noticed any adverse effects...
  9. Lighting RSX
    I am in the market for new headlights. How long / how many miles have you been running your headlight setup and how long before they started to fade? Which do you think would last longer? The depots look good but I've had mine for 1.5 years and they already are fading and stuff. But for the...
  10. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Heres my three year review on the tein ss-p coilovers. I installed them somewhere around late January 2007. Lately Tein has been getting bashed on these boards, but I figure I should provide some input on mine. I replaced megan racing street coilovers with these. I didn’t really like the megans...
  11. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    So here is my situation... I am getting a used 02 type s. I will eventually go turbo waaaaaaaaaay down the line (3-4 years). I want to know how the HKS hi-power turbo exhaust will effect my performance on an all-motor RSX for 3 years. Would i see gains on a similar level to just the HKS hi-power...
  12. ECU Tuning RSX
    A few months ago I noticed my car started driving sloppy and feeling slow even during partial throttle. Throttle response was lacking If I were to try to pass somebody in 6th gear. At the same time I noticed my fuel mileage went down drastically. I used to get over 365 a tank and now I cant even...
  13. All Motor RSX
    I myself have a 2003 RSX Type S (K20A2). A buddy of mine is thinking about getting a new Si. I told him that he would need to use 92 or above octane as its a high compression engine if he gets The Si. Because of the cost of gas he is asking if he can use regular without damaging the engine...
  14. ECU Tuning RSX
    I think i read somewhere that long term fuel trim only works with obdII enabled. I would like to see if anyone can confirm this. I believe this is true becaue i have never seen any l term fuel adjustments. If you are not familiar, us 05-06 guys have to disable obdII because there are...

  17. Car Care RSX
    I am going to be away for 7 months. I know to disconnect the battery, leave the parking break released, change the oil, fill up gas tank, check fluids, belts for wear, chalk tires and place the car on some card board so the tires won't be on solid concrete. I put towels under the wiper blades so...
  18. Turbo RSX
    For those that have turbos installed on their daily drivers, has reliablity/drivability been an issue since the install? * How long have you had it on the car? * Any problems/signs of failure? * Drivability? * Still going strong (nothing broken, malperformance)? I'm getting boost really soon...
  19. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
