    I think that's more a symptom of owning a Honda then bad spark plugs... :D

    If the plugs truly are worn out, you might see a little bump in power (it's restored power, you're not really gaining anything), but I wouldn't expect much...

    plugs and wires will make the power more smooth (and may actually revamp it to what it was) piece of advice order some 10mm core offa ebay get some ngk iridiums(sp).

    For power.... you're ricer i take it there is an intake....so clean your air filter, get a header back exhaust with an expirimental cat (hehehehe wont pass emissions i don't think)

    but some performance stuff.

    I think it was brutal that actually stated TORQUE on FWD cars = bad
    HP = good.
    Try to balance it with about 30 to 40 less torque than hp, and find the % weight in front of the car and set the torque up to pull that but no more than you need cause you're just goin to spin your wheels and not go anywhere.

    TORQUE is the shizz for old gas guzzlers.

    I was just saying that Hondas are torque-less little things. Torque is good if your car is properly set up for it (i.e. good suspension, good tires, LSD, possibly some traction bars, etc.). This is the inherent weakness of trying to build a fast front-drive car though, traction will always be a problem...

    Give yours a nice intake, a decent quality race header, a nice exhaust, and a tune-up and you should feel a nice difference...

    I'm surprised no one caught this; but the RSX doesn't use spark plug wires.

    How do you know that's not a placebo effect? Did you actually dyno your car stock versus just with the new plugs?
