Whats up guys, i just got my rsx-s runnin a couple weeks ago. I aquired it with a locked up engine and rebuilt it. Well i decided not to reinstall the a/c when i put the motor back in and searched for a while on which belt size to get and came up with no luck at all.
So i figured it out myself and found a 6 rib belt thats been working great.
Its from autozone - Duralast 537k6 is the size
That is for the k20a with power steering but no a/c
A k24 would be different due to different crank pulley size.
Just wanted to share this info with this site for anyone that wants to take their a/c out!

has anyone been able to find a 7 rib belt for this yet? i have used the 6 rib twice now and it only last about a year before it starts to show wear and what not. just feel safer with a 7 rib
Update! I ran the gates k060532 belt with removed ac compressor. Works flawlessl!!! I'll be ordering the blue gates racing belt this time. Same part number.

Only difference in blue belt is color I presume? I guess I can try that belt next but if still love to hear if anyone has found a 7 rib belt
There is an OEM Honda Belt you can use for this:
Part Number: 31110-PRC-023
Not the cheapest though at $83

Here is a video of the Belt

Here is a video of the Belt fitted
ordered that expensive belt and it doesn't even fit. it is about an inch to short
