  4. Turbo RSX
    Through searching online I found that K-Tuned makes a plug for the purge port on the throttle body but doesn't fit the 05-06 models. I can't seem to find any a plug that will fit those years, mine is an 06. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Danger Willy

    my a3 has been boosted for over 25,000kms of dd use with no VTC issues at all it was just very sluggish in the top end like 5500 - limiter was painful so i decided to switch out the horrible 3 piece plastic intake manifold for a RBB 2 piece off the floor and put A2 cams with 2 sets of a3...

Literally checked everything, even tried doing changes with the boost control on kmanager and nothing. Almost...
  19. Turbo RSX
    Hey guys quick question, It might be a dumb one, but I was wondering if it would be beneficial for long term performance if I were to upgrade my stock K20A2 crankshaft with 200,000 miles on it, for a steel 4340 stronger crankshaft. Like the title says, for turbo of course. Possibly around...
