Pretty sweet. I am glad you have plenty of go to match your show.

I love the Bronze rims. What kind are those? I want some Bronze 17"s on my Corolla XRS (wanting some Gram Lights).

Have you taken it down a drag strip yet? I would guess 13's would be pretty easy. Stock RSXs will run low 15's all day. The extra 100 or so hp should at least cut a second or so off.

BTW, thank god you don't have any neons. ;f

Have you done any suspension upgrades?

I'm not into imports at all, but that is one clean car. Not riced up at all. really clean. Alot of times people overdo all the dress up crap. ;)

Nice blower. I don't see them much on 4 bangers. I'm used to seeing a massive turbo or two.

I see no bottle? Why? Best Saturday afternoon you'll spend. Put in a small one just for the hell of it. Would really cool down that charge.

Nice car, man! Tight.

Thanks for the replies

the rims are 17" konig next and i have a set of megan racing coilovers (fully adjustable)

im not really a fan of NOS but i know it would help so much with cooling im waiting on them to come out with an aftercooler for the blower.

so far my best time has been a 13.3 @ 108mph on street tires, im hoping to get some slicks for this coming season and i should see some high 12's.

no LSD yet that is on the list when i do the tranny upgrades.

also i added a video from when i was on the dyno, i love the whine :)

Low 13s on street tires ought to surprise a lot of folks.

Externally, I think you have the perfect look. Just a bit more agressive with the wheels and the lowered suspension, but no stupid gaudy body kit. Keep the performance upgrades coming. ;)

I love the RSX interior, it is so much more damn modern than my 98 ITR.

I don't. I'm used to leaving into a car and putting my weight on the arm rest when getting in. I didnt that the first time I got into a RSX and damn near laid in the pass. seat since there's no armrest. ;e
At least you can buy them, i've never seen one in the car just a case at Acura. Didn't seem like it'd look too good in the car though.:(;c

That's pretty sweet. Clean and not overdone at all. Only issues I have is that it's FWD and makes less than 200 foot pounds. ;)

I am not one for imports but you have a really nice ride. Nothing like getting blown. 13.3@180, I am assuming your 60' was pretty high? When you get slicks you'll definately see 12's. Good luck with the car.

just curious as to why you chose the comptech piece over a quality turbo kit from full race?

If it is anything like the ones on bikes it goes around the brake resivior. It does two things. One it looks cool and two it saoks up any brake fluid that might leak out for any reason. I am pretty sure they have to run them on race vehicles to try and keep the track clean.

As posted above it soaks up any fluid that leaks. Spoon is a company that makes parts for Hondas







Sucks about Comptech closing :sad:

Those little thingies are resevoir covers made by Spoon Sports. Thats Spoon Sports out of Osaka Japan (is it Osaka? I can't remember!) Anyway, they make a lot of go-fast parts for Honda platforms. The resevoir covers basically keep leaks from getting to your electrical components and they are considered dress up parts as well. Very high quality parts. I had some of their exhaust components on my 2000 EK.

Here's a US distributor if anyone is interested.
