    If all you want is a "lil" more power, then get your basic bolt-ons. I/H/E.

    Cold air intake

    After market header....Not an ebay no brand header. Yes it is spelled header, there is only one.

    Exhaust. A mandrel bent exhaust would be best. There are on weld spots or wrinkled bends to restrict exhaust flow with a mandrel bent exhaust.

    The K20 responds INCREDIBLY to basic bolt-ons. Good luck!

    My girl's RSX Type S hasn't had a single problem since she bought it in 2002 so it has held up great for her.

    As for mods, you can do

    - Cat back exhaust

    - Cold air intake

    - Hondata chip

    intake, exhaust, header and get a ecu reflash from hondata. the reflash will add about 15 more hp to the h,e,i. warm air is never good for the engine. that's why they have the "COLD" air intake.

    you dont need to do much for a k20. all you need is a catback and intake. intakes do ALOT for rsx's. they sound mean as hell too.

    don't forget headers, the stock ones are garbage.
