If you just got the vehicle you might want to wait awhile to make sure that nothing that your warranty will cover will go wrong and if you started modding they might not cover it depending on the problem.


After you think about that most people start out with Intake/Headers/Exhaust.


No need if you plan on going with a turbo though. The only thing useful to you then is Exhaust. But you could upgrade your cams and a grounding kit stuff like that. But it all depends on what you wanna do. What do you want out of your car???


These links that come up on the things that I type though (the one about the turbonator) Don't even waste your time.Edited by: your_xtc

to increase your speed i always go for the weight first, try and reduce the weight of the car, which can mean buying new stuff[img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley11.gif[/img]

Both great suggestions!!! [img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img] I have been thinking about gettin a catback exhaust and upgrading the cams. What are the best cams for the RSX??? I used to be a Mustang junkie and then I researched the RSX one day and loved it. I`m still new to the RSX and any advice would be AWESOME!!!! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

if you are going to reduce a lot of weight I would go for suspension as my very first thing. Pirelli was it that said "speed is nothing without control"

I am going to start with an exhaust as my first up grade. In my opinion the Rsx is already a light car suspension plays a large role in the high speeds. A good exhaust should give you about 30 extra horses if im not mistaken at least thats what I gained on my 92 SHO mtx. Dynomax seems to be a the most commenly used brand.

There is no way you achieved 30 whp with exhaust alone. If you did I will kiss my own ***. Bolt ons are a good start though but make sure you use a header with Intake and exhaust and get a cold air intake not a short ram. If your gonna spend the money make sure it is on something that works.


sorry about all those other posts problem with my computerEdited by: your_xtc
