I really want to know, what do RL owners REALLY want? I mean that as in zero BS, I'd buy EVERYTHING on my list in less than three months time, didn't have to wait for a group buy, had a clear idea as to what I'd be getting, etc.

Make sure to include what you already have.

I encourage everybody to list their own ideas. Obviously the person who says 'turbo kit' or 'supercharger kit' has to be a well-heeled individual with at least one spare car...so spare us.

Obviously we have suspension choices from reasonable to outta sight...so lets try to stay performance oriented.

I would like to see:

ECU Chip (or a dev pack and a romulator)
Quiet, Stylish Catback

aside from what you said....probably just a shift kit. Most everything else is available, though it cost a grip.

EDIT:

no no, i know something. More powerful Ignition Coils. i don't know if that HKS ignition amplifier really works or not, but it would be nice to have something to bolster the standard coils.

definitely ecu chip, & a better designed set of headers with included y pipe than the current one from obx, although for the price i'd still roll with obx for now. and lastly, vtec fluid.

you know what we need? some C-pro from Hondata.

make our redline 8K and have Vtec from 3.
I don't typically jump all over people, but are you only pretending to be stupid??? I mean seriously are you ignoring the information i give you simply because you don't want to read 3 sentences?

just wondering, when wud you use that turbo if you had one? for what 3K? from 3 to 6? on a fully auto matic with a low redline that is useless I'd say. if it upshifts too fast youre stuck w/o boost or Vtec. then the M5, E55 or GS430 passes you easily
dude, just to let you know, None of the RL's before the 2005 G4 have VTEC.

what about lag and the fact that its an automatic car with a redline of less than 6K. if you were to push it, then it wud upshift, then where will you be? sitting in the nonboost zone for a second waiting for turbo Vtec to kick in?
Not only that, I told you RLs before 2005 don't have VTEC

WHat's going on? Are you not absorbing the information i'm telling you?

Spade said:
hey guys I'm new here and driving a 1997 RL (moms old car) until another year passes and I get a RSX-S.
I guess it's time for you to get that RSX Type S you want so bad because you're officially off the radar as far as a knowledgeable source of information concerning power enhancements. This isn't an off the shelf car, we're home brewed here, and to be able to stay afloat with DIY performance, you have to know the basics.

Uh, how bout anything with a decent horsepower:$ ratio w/o compromising the integrity of electrical components and longevity of the car!

Don't need retarded crap like a 100 shot of NOS or the remus exhaust ($700= 1-2 hp gain and a lil sound, WOW I'll take 4).

Peace MattyB!

I'm not even going to respond with my normal energy...jet lagged like a motherfucker. Bangkok-Narita, Japan-O'Hare-Greensboro in one shot.

Nitrous is the easiest and most proven method to get a serious horsepower boost without two buckets of money and a PhD...in the RLs. It's already been done a few times, including on my own car. That being said, it shouldn't have been mentioned in this thread.

I'm curious about the mods that people really want, that they can't currently get.
