Dyno Run I did a while ago.

Mods I believe were:
Fujita Intake
Skunk2 Intake Manifold
Skunk2 Fuel Rail
Skunk2 Camshafts
Skunk2 Exhaust Cam
Skunk2 Exhaust (from test pipe back)
Weapon R headers + test pipe
Exedy Stage 2 clutch
Exedy 8.9 pound flywheel

230 WHP on Hondata basemap

The low cam profile is improved. The intake manifold runners are longer and larger diameter - the resin/composite is claimed to be a better insulator against under hood heat. The engine that these parts came from had 4 less peak HP than the year before, but an increase in torque in the midrange. If you drive a 2g tsx, if feels like it has more torque even though it is a heavier car...

Yeah I was aware of the improved cam on the 2nd gen. Also as noted the 2nd gen is slightly faster then the 1st gen, but I'm willing to bet thats more contributed to better gearing.

In the end it all adds up! The small incremental changes Honda does can very annoying and costly at times.

This post is amazingly ridiculous, if you are a noob do not go install a supercharger or start swapping out parts left and right. If I recommend anything I would get hondata maybe an intake and call it a day. Keep stock reliability

I think this thread is leaning really heavy on major mods...does a performance newb really need to be thrust into these sorts of mods? I agree that they are all effective, but maybe we should be saying some real basics...

Throttle body spacer
Reflash or Flashpro
Header (CT or other)
Intake (CT)

to the OP, Heeltoe is the number one source for TSX parts online. Please let us know if we can help consult you in any way. My number is 949-295-1668 - Marcus
