    Hey everyone. I hope someone could chime in and help me with my problem I'm having. I've searched this thread and can't really find an answer.

  3. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    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...

    I have a bolt that seems like it is the wrong bolt in the wrong location because it sticks out so far, it doesn't even look tightened up. It appears to be holding the VT Oil Control Valve. Just curious if this is normal because the diagram on "acurapartswarehouse" under "Engine/VTC Oil Control...

    Hi, can any of you guys answer if this is a 50 degree VTC gear? On the head it says PRB-1. K20A2 on the block and timing chain cover. Is it possible that the owner before have taken the "RBC" VTC gear OR do I have a K20a3 head...?
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Receiving the p2647 error, replaced the whole vtc assembly and earased the code. Drove down the road to test and it came back on. The car won’t go above 4K rpm and as long as it stays below 4K after earasing code the cel stays off. So I checked already and every one said to do the vtc solenoid...

    I'm confident my VTC actuator has gone bad. On cold starts she fires up and then within 30 seconds she does a quick grind from the timing side. The grind comes quick and then it's gone never to be heard from again. But at low idle or bogging it can sometimes grind again. Anyways, my real...

    Hey guys, I am having an issue that maybe you guys could help me out with. I am replacing the VTC actuator on my 2006 Type-S (grinding noise on start-up) and I am having trouble removing the VTC actuator bolt from the camshaft. I was wondering if this bolt is just a PITA or am I doing...
  11. All Motor RSX
    So is the head on the k20 a different size than the k24 head? Does it change the p2v clearance? Because I keep hearing about machining the tsx gear to 45* instead of 50 to avoid p2v contact in the k24 but I haven't heard of it done on any Frank builds and they all run the 50*vtc gear and just...

  15. Problems & Solutions EP3
    My '02 has started throwing the following codes P1259, P1298, and P0141. The O2 sensor likely just needs to be replaced. It's really the P1259 I need some suggestions on. I've read through most of the posts referencing this code. I've checked the oil, pulled the spool valve to clean and check...
  16. Engine & Transmission RSX
    I just recently pulled these from a spare head that I purchased to build. I believe these to be from a very low mile engine. As I bought the head from a guy who wrecked his 03 RSX back in 2006. The block was cracked, however the head was fine. He pulled the head to build it for his next car...
