I had mistakenly attached the plx gauge/controllers to a hot wire, so they would've been constantly on.. Decided to install yet another switch, actually 2. Put a spst (single pole, single throw - on/off) and a dpdt (double pole, double throw - on-fwd/off/on-rvs) to open and close my valved exhaust.

I put the switches in the 2 blank covers beside the vsa button:

The spst switch controls electricity going to the plx gauge/killswitch-start-button assy, and also electricity to the exhaust switch. i will be installing an inline fuse, 5A max.

Try it!!! You only die once...

The best engine in the world is the Vagina;
It can be started with one finger. It's self lubricating.
It takes any size piston, and changes it's own oil every 4 weeks.
It is only a pity that the management system is so f....g temperamental.

I haven't had my tsx since 2007, but here is what I did to it within the year that I owned it.

Lowered (of course)
Lip kit (not original)
angel eyes
clewared headlights
Backup camera tapped into navi screen
Slim DVD player in cubby hole tied to switch that takes over navi screen and can watch movies while driving


My main original that I have never seen anyone else do, is I made the blinkers in the side view mirrors white LED's instead of the normal amber ones (sorry I don't have pics of this one).
Re-soldered blue led's in all door switches and console lights

Right after I swapped my 04 RBB intake manifold and throttle body for an 07 setup, I pulled it back off and port matched the two halves, then honed everything I could reach with a flexi head Dremel. Haven't seen anyone else do this.

Work in progress:




Finished product:






I did this before my Hondata reflash and still felt a noticable difference in throttle response and mid-range torque, comparing to the same manifold with the original casting texture.
There is still lots of texture in the plenum and the beginning of the runners due to inaccessibility(without cutting manifold open). The injector base is done all the way through.

It's a convenient mounting place for some future mods.
