    Need more information.
    Is it a short ram or a cold air intake?
    One is a short tube and the other is longer and snakes down through the engine compartment towards the front left foglight area.
    The short ram is easy to install but doesn't provide very much performance gains.
    The cold air intake provides more gains but is haredr to install.

    Besides that though, you shouldn't have any trouble fitting an intake onto a 2006 model. Nothing has changed in the engine compartment. For more investigation you might want to check out some other websites geared specifically towards the RSX.

    im installing a T 25 Turbo and i need to know if the stock internals will be able to take the heat and preassure? ill only be running about 7 pounds of boost. any help would be appreciated. its a 2003 RSX-S and it only has 35000 miles
  • I have had some repeated problems with defective springs in my front suspension, and was wondering if there was aftermarket parts that would improve the ride, and stop the knocking when I hit bumps
  • I thought I read several messages on the RSX and Honda message boards that installing a cold air intake actually improves mileage. Anybody know for sure? Now I read on this board that somebody's mileage went down on their Civic.
    I'm figuring on about five extra horses. But there's no way an intake is going to affect torque. As for mileage I don't have a clue.
    One of the main reasons I want to go CAI is to get a little more "rumble" out of the engine. Eventually I can go to a catback or just a different muffler, but I can't see replacing the exhaust components until they're ready to be replaced, which is going to be at least 4 or 5 years.
    Also, anybody know if a CAI will affect emissions testing? We get tested every other year in Illinois, and I'm not sure I want to be taking the thing on and off. If that's the case, maybe just get a different air filter.
  • Did anyone install wing spoiler for RSX? Spoilers with lid looks nice, but the nearby dealer quoted too much to me for that ($589) I believe, the profit he is making for spoiler may be more than the profit he is making selling the car.

    Aalso, has someone installed interior panel kit from Acura? I got the info that it is to enhance the interior of the car, but the dealer could not provide any details. Seems like, not many people go for it...

    BTW, I have 2006 RSX silver color.

    I pd $400.00 for spoiler and $372.00 for fogs. I put a clear mask on it for $125.00 My Type S is silver.
    I'm trying to get OEM heated seats now, as the leather is cold mornings.
    The internal is a waste of money.Watch out for your drivers seat as it will crack, being kidney shaped.
    They say when you buy the entry model that's what you get.
    My friends Subaru leather is alot softer and more comfortable.

    A CAI will do very little for a stock engine. I doubt very seriously if you'll gain any HP at all. And I have a CAI and Cat-back on my RSX! It does sound a lot better though. Neither one of these "mods" will not affect your emisions.
  • I just bought an 06 RSX-S and am looking to upgrade. I am starting with a CAI and a short shifter (as I feel the current shifter is way to high). Where should I go from here? I am using a very good CAI and not a cheap AEM, or generic one. What else should I do that is "bolt on" as I don't want to void the warranty.

    Also, I don't want the car to look like a "tuner" car as I am going to clients offices with it and am working in a very high level sales position, so I don't want to give off the wrong impression. I only want to know that I have upgraded the car when I step on the accelerator.....will not do an exhaust unless it is only seriously more audible over 5000 rpms..what do youthinkk?
  • im a newbee to the import cars and im just about to get a type s 04 i have been reading on here bout all the noises and things but no one is saying anything about the 04 doing that... does any one have that problem? And also im going to buy my acura from a mazda dealer.. i was just wanting to know if the 04's have break problems this car has 43000 miles on it is that good or bad for an 04? :confuse: if someone could get back to me asap that be great...

    mike
  • oh and the mazda dealer doesnt have the acura warranty on it is that bad to buy an acura off an non acura lot? with 43000 miles on it they are selling me the car for 13,300 and my trade is that good price for this kind of car?
  • The Tein Super Streets would be the way to go not just because i have em but they come with the uppermounts which means you can adjust the camber without the need of a camber kit. Another kit you should think about is the KSport coilovers. IDK which one but the're pretty cheap copared to the Teins.

    Hello everyone!

    I took my car to U-Haul on March 31st to get a hitch installed so I could tow the smallest trailer possible for moving purposes.

    Acura said they don't do hitches in RSX's, but U-Haul bought the parts for me and installed them. It was yesterday when I dropped by to pick up the trailer so I could start my moving process. Well, I drove the trailer EMPTY over to my house and just parked it there. Today at work I realized the hitch was out of place so I went and checked under my car and noticed my car was damaged.

    I didn't do anything unusual and it only took me 15 minutes to go from U-Haul to my house.

    I was wondering if the type of hitch installed could've been the wrong one. Would anyone know? I went to my mechanic and he said it was not the right one, considering the arms of the hitch were attached to the thin layer just under the spare tire.

    Here is all the relevant info I got from the receipt and by looking at the hitch itself.

    Receipt:
    1. Kit Drawbar Long 2.215" Drop
    2. Ball 2x3/4x1-15/16" 5000 LB
    3. Hitch1 Acura RSX
    4. Class 1 (Up to 2000 LB (GTW) and 200 LB (TW))

    Hitch:
    Part#: 24719 2000 LB
    Not sure if this is just a SKU number or what.

    Please any help I can get will be highly appreciated!

    Thanks to all in advance!

    Marco
