Rsx or.....

Jun 03, 2011 @ 19:38
Ive had an 04' RSX-S for about a year know, and have finally saved up enough money to start modding it (Coils,Intake, exhaust, headers). My options are to invest more money into the car now, and keep it for the next 4-5 years. Or i could sell it next year when i go to college, and over my freshmen year, save up enough to upgrade to something AWD/RWD. Not sure what to do.

do you enjoy driving the RSX.

yes = invest
kind of = dont invest
no = dont invest
Jun 03, 2011 @ 21:28
kind of, i drove my friends 330 ci, and the drive was vastly better. I just wonder if i will like my rsx more if i invest another 5 grand into it.

trying to make a honda/acura fast with bolt-ons is not worth it unless ur going to turbo or supercharge it. lower it and maybe rims or sell it and get a car worth making fast

Fuck FWD biggest problem with performance cars is traction any real professional series do not use FWD for a reason. The reason is because front wheels are used for braking and turning. Tires can only offer 100% traction so FWD tends to exceed total traction. RSX is a great car honestly I'd keep the RSX unless you had money for a GTR if you really want a performance car. GTR is a total bargain that level for performance 10 years ago would cost multi millions.

What parts are you looking into for your DC5??? I invested a lot of money into mine. There is a lot of factors that go into it. I know you listed those parts but which company are you looking to go with? There is only so much you can do to the car before you start going beyond the point of reliability if you really want to make power...

Okay your first mod should definitely be K-Pro. You don't need the sway bars at all if your going to upgrade your sway bar the only one you technically should get is the ITR Rear or one equivalent to that size. You don't need a beaks lower tie bar. Buddy Club N+ are cool if your trying to go low but if you want something a little better i recommend going with the BuddyClub RSD's as they are a night and day difference in terms of handling. I know your getting the mega ram cause of rain but go with the Injen Cold Air and then when it rains just use your stock air box if you don't have your fender line still installed. As for your exhaust that's merely subjective but you don't need to run the Apexi. You could any 2.5' pipping exhaust and be good. Considering your really going for a slight difference in sound between exhaust i would recommend going custom here as you can save a lot of money. CRSX/PLM/KRRH is a great choice but beware of the fitments issues some people have had. For what it is though you can't beat the price with the numbers it has put down...

Get K-Pro first
Ditch the Buddy N+ and go for RSD's if your not going for a "Dumped" look and car about handling

Jun 05, 2011 @ 19:24
Are the RSD's that much better than the N+s? I just dont want to spend all this money, and then regret it later.

Yeah that or Function and Form Type 2's would be a good choice for stance and comfort...

Jun 08, 2011 @ 22:18

since you said you kinda like the car i suggest to just buy the function and form type 2 just like me. there will always be better cars out there.

if you still enjoy your RSX then put some money into it. For a daily, the rsx is a pretty damn good ride. I'm about to be putting some money in my 06 NHBP type-s pretty soon. My plans are F&F II coils, mugen rear lip, gold lm bbs', etc. Picked it up about 5-6 months ago and I love it. It was kinda riced out when I got it but I'm slowly restoring this beauty, haha.

yeah, I will. It's going to be a while for all of the goodies, but it's coming together. Since I've bought the car I've put in new brake pads, retro-solutions 6k digital 55w HD kit, removed the red paint from the brake calipers (previous owner), did a tranny flush, 15% tint all around, and a headlight restore. I have a rear mugen lip kit and buddy club prospec axleback waiting in my garage to be put on. i just need to sell my sb dunk's (size 12-awayguns, boca jr's, stussy, etc. HIT ME UP) to pay for coil's.
