As the point of the report was chosen the model Acura RSX. Remember, this is a two-door coupe based on the same Accord. Comparing the performance of these two machines in stock configuration motorists have come to the conclusion that the motor sport coupe focused is more able to achieve maximum capacity, and TSX sedan is better at the “smooth and fluffy” moments.

The tuning atelier stopped at block 2.4, but everything else has changed in the motor registration. Issue of increasing power decided to “head-on” and set the task of installing the turbine from company HKS. They, in turn, did not hesitate to install a turbine GT2835, and also picked up a completely new exhaust system, in which the catalyst is gone, but there was the original dual exhaust from the Hi-Power. It picked up the turbine and intercooler blow-off, after which the order went over the rest of the mechanics. Those guys from the fuel pump, HKS share increased performance and fuel pressure regulator, and also helped to find a new fuel rail and injectors on the 600 blocks. Behind all this economy following controller HKS EVC was also installed. After these events, the engine was able to show on the stand of 350 hp, and gained in strength by 1.5 times.
