Hello this is the 1st time I have ever created a build thread, not just on nut on any website. My little company is call B&B Weld and Fabrication and by no means am I attempting to sell products that B&B makes. I am simply sharing somethings as this build thread develops. Some history on this thread : I purchased this 2002 Acura RSX Type S a few years ago. It was 100% bone stock, zero modifications done, and it was a one owner of a 56 year old man primarily used for highway travel as a DD to work. The car came with the original window sale sticker, the maintenance reports from the dealership service department, original literature packets, original leather travel notebook provided by the dealership, and even an Acura pen with business card of the car's salesman.

The car was turned over to me at 142,000 miles, burned little to zero oil, and came with a strong engine. The tranny has zero pop-outs, grinds, hesitations, and shifts like butter. The dealership installed the LSD and I must say did a fine job keeping the engine, tranny, and chassis up to par. The only thing wrong with the car is the door locks have to be done manual and the timing chain has slack in it. This build thread is being done to the best of my ability and will provide as many (part numbers) as possible.
