Should i wait for a reasonable engine break-in <say 1,000 miles> to start modding my RSX with i/h/e? I'm sitting just over 200 now...

I would. Let the engine seat properly. Then start modding, because I know when one mods the engine they want to redline it get the most out of it.

Wait until you get past 600 miles (break-in period according to the manual), the mod the crap out of it! I just passed my break-in period and floored it yesterday. Wow! :laughing: VTEC sounds sick! :love:

Yeah...I'm dying to let it loose and really run it, and getting tired of shifting (SS) at 5k rpm's, but my friend ragged on his Prelude engine from day 1 and now it is very choppy and seems to lag at low rpms.
