Update: Visited a dealer to check out a Focus RS because I had been a long time fan of those cars. The HG issue that Ford had with them ended up turning me off of the car and the smoking deal they made me to buy it. I used the printed deal to walk into a Honda dealership and negotiate a deal for a blue Type R and walked out the next day after parting out and trading in the Si

That is awesome, if that's your RSX in the picture then I love the grill piece. It looks like the chargespeed grill piece, I had the chargespeed front lip it was massive but I had always loved the look of it.

Yep it’s a chargespeed grill. Good eye lol. I love how that grill looks and I’ve never seen another one in person. People always think I have an aftermarket front bumper

Followed this guy on IG yesterday, he doesn't have the grill but he has the rest of the kit. The grill would look money on his type R.

Yea he needs the grill to finish off the kit for sure. I debated on going with the chargespeed lip kit but it just sat too low for me. Here’s another look at mine

Thanks man. I bought it bone stock as a mint low mileage one owner desert silver metallic type s and tore it all apart and painted it type r Phoenix yellow. It has full bolt ons, a mugen HOA ecu, tons of other mugen parts, no power steering, no ac, xbar in the back with no back seats, battery in the hatch. It has like 70,000 miles on it. Garage queen lol.

Seems a bit of a leap from 18mm to 22mm without balancing it with a front upgrade. Planning on autocross or something?

I plan to get the Progress 20.6mm soon, as I think its about as thick as would make sense without adjusting the front for street/daily driving.

I take it you live in or near Portland from the pics.

Wasn't all that much of a jump to be honest, came out quite well and the improvement is very noticeable. :)

Got a Type R exhaust thrown on, deleted the two front resonators and replaced them with a single vibrant ultra quiet resonator.Very happy with how it sounds and it is so much lighter than the oem SI exhaust and a bit lighter than the stock Type R exhaust.
