Well I have a very different take on this. I believe that Honda is missing their market all together. They need a performance car that is BOOSTED. Whether it is supercharged or turbocharged their sales would fly through the roof. Lets face it the cars on the American market today that are boosted do not have near the reputation of reliability that Honda/Acura has. If Honda would go back to the table for some moreR/D. Or ooppss just read CN, JR, or Greddy's websites "did actually type that". I think that with a boosted model rsx Honda would be ontop of the market here in a heartbeat.

No, you can't buy an already turbo'd RSX from the dealer. IF you want a turbo rsx, go buy an RSX, pay close to 5k and take a road trip to florida to visit CN.

that is not going to happen, and honda is not going to be selling or developing any boosted rides soon. They were built on an all motor basis, not a single car utilizes any type of boost. Hondas were meant for road racing.

You may want to check out the honda dealership off the 60/57 freeway @ grand ave. I cant think of the name of the dealership. I had a friend who worked at honda and he told me that the dealerships sales sucked, so they were selling cars with the option of NX systems installed off the lot, in order to raise interest and get some sales...not sure if they were offering turbos though. You may want to go down there and find out if they would be able to. :thumbsup:
