Hey guys! I've used this board a lot to help me catch up on TSX info, I just purchased an 05 Gray TSX to replace my 98 CL, for daily driver duties.

As of right now the TSX has a K&N turbo filter on the stock intake arm, just as effective as all those other intakes on the market and cost me nothing as I had the filter laying around as a spare off my Integra. The car also has the USASpec audio input box.
I did some routine maintenance, just need to flush the trans fluid.

I am in no way new to the car world, just new to owning a TSX. My other car is a 93 DA Integra, which I've owned for 12 years and went through many phases with.

DA:

Welcome! Any plans on the TSX?
Honestly, yes and no, LOL!

I'm not really sure what yet but probably just aero mods and some wheels. No point in doing much engine work since it's a heavy, under powered 4 door with AT.

I was looking at the reflash maybe and making a RAM air intake setup for it, I know the K's respond well to simple bolt ons so it could make the car better to drive.

In the immediate future:
Tint
OEM Fogs (Those Ebay kits have a ton of junk, rats nest wiring, which I don't want to infest the car with)
LED bulbs maybe too.

Nice rides dude. I dig the blue fleck paint with the anthracite wheels look. I used to have my own 2G Teg... had to bail on it when we moved to the city. Regretted it ever since.... but I just picked up an '06 TSX the other day so I'm finally scratching that Acura itch again...

Where in MD are you?

Thanks man! No flake there though, not my style, It was rain on the car LOL.

I've owned this car for about 12 years, can't get rid of it, just finally bought a house with a garage so it's at least inside now.
Yea I am excited I just got my TSX.

We are in Severn, off Rt 100.

Ha, whatdya know. Still it's a good shade of blue and yeah you're prob better off w/o the flake.

I got my Integra about 11 years ago, and had to give it up a few years later. On a whim I picked up an NA Miata a few years ago as a weekend warrior. I've autox'd it a couple times but now it's mainly for sunny afternoons when my lady and I feel like getting lost somewhere. Now that I have a garage it's much easier to make the case for a third car.

Yeah you're not too far away, we're in Catonsville, off the Baltimore beltway.

LOL, yeah the missus is a Bmore native but we lived in DC the last few years. Now that we're living large in "Charm County" we generally just call 695 "the Beltway".

Yeah, let me know about the dyno day, could be cool.
