Hey there, I'm looking to buy my rsx later on today and I haven't seen anything about this, but I noticed how small and compact the engine bay is and was just wondering how big of a problem it might be for doing any sort of modifications. Any information our help is appreciated.

Yeah, I noticed it wasn't as bad as the si, it's one of the main reasons I won't get the newer si's. But as for doing like bolt ons, turbo, headers and such, is it extremely difficult to maneuver around in?

not at all. just remove the sway bar and your clear to work on the exhaust manifold

So this is something I hadn't heard before. The one I'm looking at was made in California so everyone I do emissions it needs to be with their standards and parts? Seemed a little strange

Sounds like BS to me about the Cali parts only thing
Either I'm misreading it or they don't know what they're talking about

No you read it right, it made no sense. I've talked to some other people about it too. They will thought it was the dumbest thing they ever heard lol

I don't know if there is much room to mod a DC5 under the hood - I don't think anyone has tried it yet.
