I have a 2004 Acura rsx base auto. It’s slow on the low end but top end is pretty fast. Does anyone know how to make these cars faster without spending an arm and leg.

Sell it and buy a Type S.

Use the search function. You'll find that your shit out of luck without forced induction.

Sell it and buy something with a turbo or more displacement. Shit bottom end is just the way of life for any naturally aspirated four cylinder. Even my H22 was a bit of a dog down low stock.

If Acura wasn't lying in the dealer brochures, the base has a hair more low-end grunt than a Type S anyway. People rag on the plastic manifolds, but the longer runners and butterflies do work. I think once my A3 dies and I swap in a K24, I'll leave those limp dick-looking runners on, thank you very much.
