Performance
The new 2004 Acura TL promises to outperform its predecessor. Under its hood is an all-aluminum, 24-valve, 3.2-liter V6 engine. It gives the TL a whole new level of strength: 270 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 238 lb-ft of torque at 5000 rpm.

The standard transmission is a 5-speed automatic setup with a manual shift gate. However, there's also a 6-speed manual transmission model that basically replaces last year's Type-S trim. It receives firmer suspension, Brembo-brand front brakes and a limited-slip differential.

For exceptional control, the 2004 Acura TL is given Acura's Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Traction Control System. VSA adjusts brake pressure and engine power to help correct understeer and oversteer, while traction control works monitors wheel slip while accelerating or driving on slippery surfaces


I was right it does.

Plus it has the drive by wire technology like the NSX. Not really sure what that translates to in real world driving (quicker throttle response = faster off the line???), but I read it in the Acura Mag.

Rumor has it the Type S TL will have 300 hp, but that isn't from a real reliable source so just keep it between you and me....LOL.

In my latest mag the TL 6sp ran a 14.4 and the A spec ran a 14.29, I guess because of better traction.

Wow do you mean the RSX Type S A spec ran a 14.29? That is fucking amazing. I thought they still have the 200 hp motor? WTF?
