So here are my MODS I would like to do in order. Basically does anyone see any big gaps or mistakes? Does anyone have any changes they would make? I want the car to be an all around performer and it has to be a daily driver. It's also important that it be able to pass emissions. Do you think I've got a shot? What sort of WHP would I be looking at and would it be a better deal to just go FI? Any help would be appreciated :thumbsup:

Save your money, you dont need valvesprings and the Toda Head gasket. And are you going to be using the K-pro to its full potential???
How would one go about making the most out of the K - Pro? In the future I would like to make more mods where the KPRO would come in handy like ES MMs for instance. Also I could compensate for future mods with K - Pro without upgrading or re - flashing. Are you saying I should just get the type r flash?

If you are not going to Dyno tune, get the Type-R flash. You don't need the head gasket like MR. Nuts said as well. The springs are not "needed" but are for safety if you plan on reving high constantly. You will also need an exahust. Get a nice 2.36" (60mm) exahust or 2.5".

Thats why I am asking. How much further are you gonna go with your car? What is your ultimate goal? Are you going to be installing other parts, like newer wilder cams for example,. or ITBs, or better race headers, increasing the compression w/ pistons, that will need the k-pro? Will you be racing a lot that will require further fine tuning? I mean if you are just gonna slap all the listed parts you have and go have fun, and thats it, k-pro might not be the best thing for you. Will you be tinkering with the settings if you have the k-pro like conradb212 does and some other members do? Its kinda of spending almost $400 more and not using your dollars worth.

ES MMs will not require the use of the k-pro :confused: .

I debated between the k-pro and ITR flash for awhile but decided to go with the ITR flash because I know I am done with my car once I get all the parts listed on my sig installed. From now on, I will just be upgrading my suspension and brakes...no more engine parts that will require the use of the k-pro for tuning.

Suspension is where the fun stuff begins with the RSX. You don't have to be at redline or pushing the car to see the benifit of a good suspension setup. Don't forget that larger heavier breaks will slow you down too. Aftermarket pads and new brake lines/w fluid go a long way. Ok, I'm going OT here.

I figure I will be modding the car for the rest of the time that I have it. I need it to be able to pass emissions thought so I can't get too crazy with it. I take it the race header would be the biggest problem as far as passing emissions. How much does it cost to swap out headers when emissions test comes around? I have a huge list of stuff I would like to do to the car and if the K - Pro can help me optimize my setup I will throw an extra $400 at the car. Basically I want the set up to be optimal. To me that means making the car perform at as high of a level as possible without running a high risk of my engine disentigrating. :laughing:

Oh and with the K - Pro you can raise your idle to like 850 to reduce cabin vibration. Thats why I mentioned ES MMs.
