Not that it matters anymore but I wanted to create an area to document my new journey from getting a new RSX and getting to a point where I can say I am satisfied with end result. As many of you know my previous car was stolen and ended up being a total loss after getting it back, of which i was quite satisfied with. I then purchased "creepychris's" old RSX and eventually sold the stock version of my previous car. The most disappointing aspect of my experience was that I had little to no documentation of the countless hours spent modifying/repairing the vehicle but this time around I will.

The max racing has an optional weather guard that fastens to underside of the hood and let's the water run onto the heat shield of the header, living in CA I don't have to worry about that really but it's got that option if you want it. For the mugen one I'm not sure I guess the elements just get in there and you gotta deal with it. I bought her hood used so I'm not sure if it comes with anything like the max racing did.
