Speak with a Acura represenative. They will let you know what can and cannot be done to it. I know i have the K20a motor, since I have a 2002 RSX Type S. Best bet, if needed, get a 04 Type S. Same hp. Only difference is the wheels go from 16" to 17", head lights are a bit different, and same with the tail lights. either way, you're getting a car with 200hp. My two cents.

The 05 changed up quite a bit. different,shocks, steering and ECU and probibly other stuff.(maybe why he wants to get rid of it?)The companies that make the aftermarket parts spent a lot of $$$ on R&D of the 02-04 platform. Theyhad tostart from scratch with the 05 model. Plus the previous platform the 94-01 Integra was around for a long time, = lots on the road that want to go faster, = lots of customers. I think most aftermarket companiesare gunshy about what honda will do next. It kinda ticks me off that they (honda)treat the tuner side of they're marketlike the redheaded stepchild. If you want a Teg err... RSX get a 04. Best of luck to you.

I still would recommend speaking with a Acura mechanic. They would know best on what to do. I know I priced out a turbo for my car, and its $5000 just for parts. Im passing on that. 200hp is just fine for me . Going to put nice 18" rims and 205/40 tires on it, then get a exhaust.


Googling everything doesn't always give you the answer. Just a heads up though. Dont want you to ruin your engine by super charging it. They're too nice of cars to ruin

That turned into being a good post guys, very helpful to all.


When we have more members who have real-world knowledge, then this site will become more of the Premier site it should be.


I will be bringing over a New Member who has his own Honda/Acura shop in AZ and is overly well versed in the workings of these cars-you all will really appreciate this man and his knowledeg. So Look forward to seeing him post in the near future. [img]smileys/smiley16.gif[/img]
