  5. Turbo EP3
    Is seems I have more low end when it's least tension. It came with lots of tension on it and since I'm at least 3rd owner not sure if they were like me and played with it. Curious if maybe had more hard paper proof or tell me more what's going on beside performance change, essentially which...

  19. General RSX Discussion
    I know it might not be a big deal but does anybody know the reason why Acura made the 06 RSX Type-S (201 hp) have 9 less horsepower than the 05 type-S (210 hp). I dont get it.... First of all, why lower the horsepower if its a newer year and why nine? :dontknow: Why do you think?
  20. General RSX Discussion
    Okay. Im in the rare mood to vent. I dont really understand why out of all the 06's "sporty" midrange price cars, that were SAE'd, the Type S had to go down 9 h.p. I mean the G35 went from 298 to 293. The RX-8 from 238 to 232. And when the Si came out it was supposed to be at an even 200 but...
