Tein S on OEM shocks

It depends on you really... I don't mind the stiffer ride and its definitely more bouncy than the stock suspension. I'm used to it. The body roll is reduce significantly and cornering is fun.

I do plan on getting aftermarket shocks to pair with the springs... eventually

And the build starts...

First, I'm doing this all solo. Even after reading all the instructions, reviewing all the install pics threads, webistes, etc. I guarantee there will be something missed. The good thing is that I remained persistent and learned a lot. There were some times were I felt I got in over my head, but thankfully, I was able to work through and the guys on the CRSX forums have been a tremendous help!

With that, here are some pics and lessons learned during my install. I'm still not complete, but should have everything done by the end of the month

Acquiring parts for the build:











Last shot N/A:


Throttle body off (LESSON LEARNED: Get a new gasket... had to order one)


Ended up cleaning the IACV:


Intake mani off:


Garage with pieces all over:


More shots to come... have to jump on a plane to D.C.

Yeah, it was definitely a challenge. Part of the reason I'm upset that I had to take it back off. I should have it back on after Thanksgiving

Thank you, Sir! Yes, I was done, but the starter lead got pinched and caused a major short circuit I pulled the blower out on Saturday, fixed the short circuit, but the damn knock sensor broke

Once the new sensor comes in, I'll put the car back together and finally get it running officially

continues...

Another note: I've elected not to install the alternator spacers, so it saved some time with the install. Here are some more pics.

stock mani gasket removed and placed paper towels in the block to prevent foreign objects from falling in:


power steering pulley off


power steering, oem tensioner, and passenger motor mount removed


jmercado bracket and oem tensioner installed:


motor mount installed (Lesson Learned: PAY ATTENTION. This pic shows that it can be installed upside down. I realized it about 2 hours later )


another shot of jmerc bracket and everything lined up


headlight trimmed:


first test fit of the blower in place:





Day 2 - attached the blower. By far the hardest part, especially trying to hold it by yourself and catching the bolts with a loose Hondata IMG moving around Once I got it, things started going a little better

after couple of hours.. lost count, finally got the blower mounted


ended up breaking the idle air assist valve, so I just deleted it


New belt routing (Lesson Learned: As you can see, I flipped the motor mount back to the correct position)


belt installed (Lesson Learned - when using the jmerc bracket to reuse the auto tensioner, the belt path is NOT the same as it was with the JRSC manual tensioner. Please refer to the jmerc site for the belt routing as I was lost for about 20 mins thinking the belt is TOO long)


fuel rail with new injector and plug an play adapter clips (no splicing or soldering needed)


fuel rail installed into blower:




plug for idle air assist:


new plugs:


stock plugs vs. the new:



Got all that installed and had to go on travel for work. The following weekend, I put back on the throttle body, intake, MAP sensor and took this shot

This past weekend, I rolled the car out of the garage to try and start it. I received my first kal from magnEsium who is providing my tuning services 2 weeks ago and was waiting on me for the first set of datalogs.

Pumped and ready to go, I try reconnect the negative terminal on the battery and it sparks really bad, scars the terminal, and smokes. I was like oh shit, what did I do. The only electrical I did was wire the 3 bar MAP sensor and I knew I did it right. Turned out after talking with the supercharger guys, they said I have a short it its most likely the starter lead. I did several tests with a multimeter and a test light to see if it could be anything else, but it was not.

Huge disappointment, but had to fix it. So, pulled off the blower and sure enough



started to remove the harness and the damn knock sensor snapped with the slightest tug



Charger guys told me they break very easily, but now I'm waiting on a replacement to put the blower back on.

Here is the fix and repositioned starter lead as of now


I confirmed that the short was fixed and the battery is not sparking when I touch the terminal with the negative terminal.

I should have the knock sensor in this week and I should be able to get the blower back on the last week of NOV and finally get tuned up and see how the car runs.

Will keep you guys updated...

Finally got everything sorted out and the car is officially up and running! Update to come, but here is a quick teaser:

First startup:

Discovered that I had a vac leak. Fixed the leak and cleaned the IACV thoroughly today. End result:

whp/wtq posted on pg 1. Once the car gets cleaned up, will post proper photos. Been a busy couple months for me to include work, buying a new house, and prepping for my daughter. All and all, I'm extremely happy with the S/C and its definitely a sleeper

Some recent acquisitions...

I haven't had much time to play with the RSX, but getting ready to put in some work...







Current bay shot


Updating thread to get motivated to finish the following within the next few months:
* Install HR MMs
* Install RH
* Install 2.5" custom exhaust
* Fix snapped bolt on jmerc auto tensenior
* Install MTEC race springs
* Install new OEM tail light gaskets
* Install Honda VC after paint
* DIY clearing the headlights
* Fix hole in trunk
* Clean/detail dirty car
* Re-tune

That will be it for now... I was going to paint the A-Spec front lip and rear, but decided I'll hold off until I re-spray the car.
