Im getting my 04 type s in a couple of weeks. I want to do a lot to it (right away), but i know it has to be broke in first. So thats my first question. How many miles is it safe to say the engines broke in? Also, I know it comes with the warranty. Im not real worried about voiding it. But has there been any major problems with the rsx, that i should wait to see if they happen before i start moding?

It's a Honda motor, and it is one of their best(if not their best) motors they've built for the consumer market. If you give it around a thousand miles before you do anything you'll be safe. You said you want to do a lot to it. Do you mean bolt on wise or force induction as well? Cause for f/i you're going to want to give it some more time.

another problem that you might have is your syncros. alot of people who own a 2002 type s have had shit loads of problems with there syncros. wait and see but eve if you dohave a problem i think there was a recall? not sure.
