Has anyone heard of an RSX-S motor just blowing out of no where? No mis-shift, over-rev, hydrolock, etc... Just been driven hard for the last 30k miles, and all of a sudden . . . motors gone!

I haven't been on the boards for a while, but i dont remember ever hearing of a random blown motor, except a few that were only a few hundred miles old, but those were most likely factory defects.

Thanks guys

No, no ones motor blew. My car is at about 30k miles and i redline ALOT. I was going to sell my car, but now i kind of want to keep it and spend the extra money modding. I dont want to put a lot of money in my car if there is a chance my motor might blow in a few thousand miles.

In the summer months, aka now, I redline sometimes up to 5 times a day, it's fine, honda motor's are meant to take that kind of abuse. I have never heard of a motor blowing that didn't have a reasonable explanation behind it.

Big Cam is right. K-series engines are strong and can take a good amount of abuse.

I've never heard of it happening.

In fact, I've never heard of it happening to any particular series of honda motors. I'd like to know if there was a certain honda motor way back when that just randomly blew and got the reputation for being junk...

Well, I'm not a boy racer, I just use my car for commuting. Some times you need to commute fast.

I could redline all day, I just don't want to.

My freind tells me he is amazed at how loud my engine is for it being stock. I have no engine mods at all.

I tell him it's because the damn thing is spinning 8,000 times a minute.
