Dang that's low!
These are the sport springs?

Mind sharing what size and offset you're wheels are? Also camber adjustment and any rubbing issues?

Rims is an acceptable slang for wheels, we all know what he's saying. lol :taz:

It's a nice streetable drop, looks much better than stock.. It still looks sharp. :cool2:

Just a pet peeve of mine. Like when people say their polished wheels are chrome rims. Or when they say they have headerS on their 4 banger. Guess I wont have a problem with the later on these ILXs huh? :p

Dope drop and nice wheels. Who made them?

I always thought the same?

Parts of an Exhaust
Header -> Cat (down pipe would bypass the cat) -> Mid pipe (b-pipe) -> muffler?

I just hate when people with cars using ONE header say they are installing headers. I wonder what they do with the extra header.

You guys basically have the right idea with the exhaust system.
We have a downpipe and cat though.

The header is actually integrated into the head of the K24Z7 so instead of a tradition header coming out it's just a downpipe.

OK. I knew that but there still is a "header" for 4 cylinder cars.

example - integra, rsx

It seems like most newer Acuras have the header integrated into the head.
The answer is yes to both. pre-2009 generation of Honda/Acura motors all featured full on header(s) (maybe 1 or 2 cars out there that didnt so dont shoot me) The reasoning they switched it from my understanding is because integrating the header to the head allows them to place the precat closer to the exhaust port, warming the precat quicker which apparently helps with emissions. From what I am seeing though it's not really a performance disadvantage.. K20s with similar mods to K24s put down expected numbers.. the K20 has a slight HP advantage where the K24 has a slight TQ advantage.. which I am gonna say is more based on the head & cams themself than the exhaust. The integrated head seems to be working really well for turbo manufacturers, PRL(?) has already made 370WHP on the '12 Civic Si. Someone more up on the engineering can maybe chime in as to the WHY they make the head that way now.

Quick question while im working and cant take time to find the answer. Are we talking the 2.0 2.4 or both?
The R20 and K24 (2012/3 variants) both feature an integrated header.

Lookin real good. Is that yours Veilside?


lol It can go much much lower my friend. Still a lot of wheel gap, especially for 18in WHEELS... not rims.
its a conservative drop on the ILX, but yes he can go at least an inch lower. But it depends how much trouble he wants to save himself from. Its not fun when you have a slammed car driving around town and new areas not know if theres going to be a huge speed hump that will damage your front bumper or other things.
