Forreal, it's been quiet. RSX has been parked primarily until I can change the CMC, so I just been driving the beater. MDX died on me this weekend while I was out of town. Had to replace battery and alternator to get back home with a 4 hour drive. Still have some kinks to work out before I head out of the country on Wednesday.

Having the standard cold weather in the Chicago area but my RSX-S is tucked away in a nice heated building. This weekend I went to the Chicago Auto Show to keep up to date with the latest and greatest. Displayed in the Acura section was the latest NSX with an original one parked next to it. They also had a Civic-R that you could sit in. You know when Honda let loose their engineers to do their thing they can design a pretty good drivers car - NSX, S2K, RSX-S/Integra-R, Civic-R

Curious if anyone has had success adding a ep3 JRSC to a k20a2? I only ask cause I want to get rid of the k20a3 lump I've had in it and swap it with either a k20a or k20a2 w/6 speed trans. Thinking of adding the jmercado manifold that would allow for some aftercooling as well.

It's been done, but I'm not sure if that thread can be dug up. If you get the jmercado manifold, you can remount the JRSC M62 blower on it I'm sure...

Saw both the new NSX and CTR back in Oct 2018. Love both, but doubt I'd own the CTR. Loved sitting in it though.

Outside of my RSX, I'm leaning to the G70 for my next car in a few years. I'll keep the RSX for sure and get rid of the Mazda3. With that, just ordered a new CMC to replace next weekend. Also, plan to due an oil change, clutch fluid change as well. Found a shop they will rebuild my blower if I source the parts, so starting to research that for a summer project. Any recommendations?

Thinking I read oil change, new bearings, and couplers... I haven't opened and I had it since 2012 and I probably have about 40-50k on it with no service done.

A turbocharged V6 G70 looks like it would be entertaining to drive.

Saving for a IS38 turbo for my MK7 GTI is the next mod for me. My MK7 GTI is my poor man's Porsche. A larger turbo should help it keep up with my old RSX-S top end speed.

Yes, would love the 3.3T, but I want a 6MT, so will opt for the 2.0T 6MT instead. Love manuals and plan on keeping this tradition alive lol. Wish the 3.3T G70 came with a MT option, but understand why it doesn't.

A turbo upgrade would be nice on the MK7. I really like the Golf R, but I don't have much experience with VW.

You need to cross over to the dark-side and try a good dual clutch automatic transmission. If you like to drive competitively on a straight or winding road, it's hard to beat the paddle shifters, different driving modes, and available program upgrades. Also, I've never missed a shift, plus you can keep both hands on the wheel. I will say nothing feels better then cruising down the highway at 60 mph in your RSX and you drop from 6th to 3rd gear and jump ahead of the guy next to you.

Currently my GTI with some minor upgrades is now putting out 336 hp - 404 ft/lbs, but overall I'm shooting for around 390 hp - I like to keep the Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers on their toes.

I know... I have a good friend that autox and he said the same thing. It's just something about shifting gears that I can't get over.

I'm from Chicago originally. Over by Lincoln Park. My mom and sister are still down there so I use to visit a lot and hang out with the Chicago RSX guys a lot.

Nice. I work in Chicago. Although RSXs are becoming more extinct, next time you're in the Chicago area maybe we can link up with some other drivers. I can't remember, but do you still have your RSX?
