well my guess is,
the rsx wont be made after 06...
i hear acura might get a euro version civic here in the states badged as a ACURA.
I got those specs from TOV.
and yes it is heavier then the current type s..
time for some carbon fiber...
Three-door euro civic = CRX???

Wonder what kind of hp improvements are noted on the current RSX-S, gains from aftermarket exhaust, turbo (if possible), intake systems...etc. are available to increase the std hp? The RSX-S folks should have alot of knowledge on enhancing this engine. Wonder who might be the guru on this issue. Looking at the potential of turning the new Si into a screamer.
Most of them can pull a 14.8 with just an intake, and exaust doesnt do much.
Not to mention that Kpro is not available yet for the K20Z series engine. Thats all i know, hope it helps.

rsx-s does 14.8 stock with a good driver and good conditions now si has an advantage almost same hp only 40 lbs heavier but has a LSD i bet stock it will get into mid 14's if not lower :laughing:
Ive heard of a few do that, including Car & Driver ...

but i hear they r gonna change the name to CSX, to fall along the lines of rsx,tsx,nsx,csx..
we'll see..
as far as where i got my hp and tq numbers from, i got it from tov, im not sure if they dynoed it, or if that was the specs they got from honda.. but ive seen it on numerous sites, so my bet is thats the actual specs...
so euro civic = USDM RSX replacement...
it better have more power than 200. Mabye a type r ?
