I wasn’t a big fan of the cone filter that came with the TSX. The stock air box had been removed for the most part, and replaced with a generic cone air filter. Under quick acceleration the TSX had the adolescent-esque screen of the intake. I’m old. Er, older. When I was younger and first […]

Skunk2 had an awesome Black Friday sale so I decided to take advantage. =) Some things were needed, others were nice to get for a great discount. After taking the TSX into Aspen Auto Clinic for a once over I learned I needed to replace the valve cover gasket and the VTEC solenoid gasket. […]

The almost 13 year old steering wheel on the TSX was in worse off condition than my old 23 year old Integra sedan’s wheel. I’m guessing the past 3-4 owners before me may have picked at it until it looked like this. Since the TSX will be my daily driver, I couldn’t stand driving it […]

After starting the car, it would go to the screen where you enter the security code and eventually just dim/turn off since the code couldn’t be entered.

So I’ve been on a wheel writing kick lately. Today’s focus is on Varrstoen. It seems this company is all about copying design’s, selling them at a fraction of the cost and saturating the wheel market misguiding new enthusiasts to the wheel world. Now, I’m no wheel snob but it comes to a point where […]

So I’m going to start off a new category about wheels… Wheels can totally change the look of a car, making it stand out from the thousands of same make and model cars out there. The price of wheels and new tires start off in the hundreds, commonly close to a thousand. But they are […]
