Oops, too late now. I was sketched out by knock off NGK's on ebay and didn't trust amazon either so went that route. Good to know for next time but oh well. $60 is hardly going to set me over the edge on this car.
This might be my last post in this thread, or at least until I part out the TSX. I need to make a thread in Acura zine
I stripped the audio set up out the TSX and on Saturday I towed it back to my hometown where it will sit until I strip it.
My OEM parts came in already. Threw the hood struts and the cabin filter in right away cause easy.
I test fitted the NT03's and same problem with the TSX - they need at least 15mm spacers and that leaves me needing to cut my lug studs again. Which this time I am not willing to do. One of my studs snapped when taking the stock wheels off so at some point I will likely go extended ARP studs.
These pics are with a 20mm spacer up front and 5mm spacer out back. Too much poke up front for me.
So I took those off and tossed on my 25mm spacers and threw the waffles back on. I'm good with this.
Cleaned the engine bay as well. It was pretty nasty. Replaced hood struts and also replaced the emblem that was missing from the engine cover.
I also bought a new set of Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ from Tirerack for the low. They had the 235/45r17 size on clearance and also have a $120 mail in rebate on select tires which put me at under $100/tire which is more than reasonable for me.
And the last pic I took of the TSX after getting her loaded up:
Part out will happen, although I'm not entirely sure when. Probably won't be until a bit later in the season as I don't want to miss a weekend of good weather (have to take advantage of every goo weather weekend we get here in the midwest cause the other half of the year is miserable)
If anyone wants anything start letting me know. Part list is on the first page. I am keeping the focal components, JL amps, JL sub, and the Mugen wing. Pretty much everything else is up for grabs.
