  4. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    So I've been pretty oblivious about cleaning my intake filter over the past nine years. At 120k, I FINALLY cleaned and oiled it with the K&N kit, thinking I may see a slight increase in my performance and fuel economy...but nope... I used to get 300+ miles on a tank before the gas light would...
  5. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    I just picked up a pioneer head unit from Crutchfield and I've notice reduced reception in some areas. Does anyone know the cause of this? I used crimp connectors and didn't solder. Should i take it out and solder the wires? Also, I used a kit so I could keep the stock amp. Thanks

I forgot to check what the tire shop filled my tires to, but I checked today to find every tire was a completely different psi. the highest being 38.5. Could that be the...

  13. General RSX Discussion

  14. Wheels & Tires
    yesterday i swapped out my 05 base rims with the POS michlens for 17in 5zigen GN+'s wrapped with used falken azenis rt-615's. The rims looked badass and i certainly appreciated the added grip and steering feel but it felt like the new hardware was making my base even slower than it already...

I had an act street disc...

  20. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys. Slight problem. I got an 02 Type S I bought used, me being the 3rd owner. The 2nd owner thought that the 1st owner (following me so far?) put in a short shifter, and the shifter is definitely shorter than my friends' Type S. Anyways, There is a lot of play in the shifter. By that I...
