Been waiting for this post
Sounds like you fought the best fight you possibly could and simply were just out gunned! That's the only thing about the tsx it definitely needs a mildly built motor to compete with the lighter kswapped cars!
Soooooo...what's your plan haha? All motor? Supercharger? Turbo? Or leave as is?
Either way looked like you had a blast!
Haha, thanks! I'll have a Laguna Seca post coming soon too. Still getting my photos together.
Man, I rung this TSX out as best I could and it actually beat quite a few cars it probably shouldn't have. I'm happy with how it performed and it will perform better on other tracks like Buttonwillow and Chuckwalla where driver and car set up make more of a difference. Streets of Willow is not the most ideal track for heavy cars.
I think the next major step would be to get more power out of this thing. I still have my RBC manifold I need to put on. Beyond that I think some Drag Cartel drop-in cams, 40° VTC, bigger throttlebody, K20 head and Flashpro should help tremendously. Maybe a clutch diff from MFactory or Kaaz too. This would be way down the line though.
On post 175, what did you replace that front fork bushing with? OEM or?
And you still dont recommend the monoball/hard factory compliance bushings for daily driving? Did you end up going TL-S?
I replaced the fork bushing with an OE one. Ironically, the TSX and TL-S share the same bushing part number: 51810-SDA-A01
My front compliance bushing is still the TL-S version and I'm pretty happy with it. My auto TSX had the monoball pieces in when I sold it but it now belongs to another friend here at Eibach. I'm curious to swap them back in to see how they feel now that everything else with the suspension seems to be sorted finally. I'll report back if I end up swapping these arms back in.
Any updates with your TSX??
