Just drop a F-18 slingshot engine in a Type-S and you won't have to worry about any Turbo although trying to see anything in front of you might be a problem. It makes over 1500 at the engine so how much that is to the tyres, I don't know except that it will be alot.

your sig says that you got a base rsx and you working for a type-s. Do you have a auto or 5 speed.

Okay though seriously, let us add up the numbers.

Lets take numbers at the flywheel. So we start at the good number of 200 HP.

Exhaust adds 10.
CAI adds 5.
Header adds 10.
Hondata adds 35.
Cams add 15.
Spark Plugs add 5.
Grounding Kit adds 2.
Gasket adds 5.
Valve Springs add 5.
Pistons add 10.
Premium Fuel adds 7.

So all in all from our 200 we add 109 and we get 309 at the engine. I wouldn't expect to get over 220 whp easily. At over 300 youreally have to look for ways to muster out any more horses.

Oh I got a stick, that is a 5 speed, from the message above. I'm looking to get a Type-S this Semptember or October and I'll be going all N/A for any engine upgrades.

No I know those figures are absurd, mainly the premium fuel and spark plugs I know I was just messing around. I really have to read alot more on this site and stop posting.You can tell I'm new here, I'm just trynig to get around or maybe build up my post count but I can see or I guess that doean't matter much here. I'm not going to ask what the figures are, I'm just going to go read some more around to site and find out.

I know that with math, 15+5= 20 but in car tuning it's not necessarily true. For example, if an intake by itself adds 15 hp and a catback by itself adds 5 hp, it doesn't equal 20 extra hp... Its weird but it may only come out to say 17 hp if that. If what you said were true, we'd all have 13 sec or better RSX's... Besides you forgot about the HP that stickers add... :laughing:
