Engine bay size

Hey there, I'm looking to buy my rsx later on today and I haven't seen anything about this, but I noticed how small and compact the engine bay is and was just wondering how big of a problem it might be for doing any sort of modifications. Any information our help is appreciated.

Yeah, I noticed it wasn't as bad as the si, it's one of the main reasons I won't get the newer si's. But as for doing like bolt ons, turbo, headers and such, is it extremely difficult to maneuver around in?

SilverS-STL is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
Once you remove the stock air box, it opens it up a lot.

So this is something I hadn't heard before. The one I'm looking at was made in California so everyone I do emissions it needs to be with their standards and parts? Seemed a little strange

I don't know if there is much room to mod a DC5 under the hood - I don't think anyone has tried it yet.
