Si weight

The weight noted above makes it heavier than the RSX Type S. Not good. I had hoped they would keep the weight further down from this number. At least it would be cheaper than the RSX and maybe a little bigger inside. Likely the same performance. Wonder whether the RSX-S is to get a more powerful engine to make up the similar performance between the two.
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.
