    Hi all, I'm pretty new to all this stuff but I'm learning as I go. I'm trying to create a pretty decent NA build overtime but I'm not 100% sure on some things.

Later down the road I was planning on putting the k20 head on it and boosting it, but for now I need to get it driving again. Anyways, I wasn’t sure about how the tuning would work. I have a 2007...
  11. Acura CSX
    So I’m brand new here, long story short I’m not the most knowledgeable in the car field. I own a 2009 Acura CSX (not type S) but I want to do the swap to the k20z3. I have someone who is willing to sell me the engine only (no transmission, harness etc). I know this may seem like a stupid...
