The Speed of a TSX

I feel the need just to throw in a short writeup after the last couple weeks. We finally got all the snow melted and i took off my winter rubber so ive been having fun with my car.
As far as the regular subject of "the tsx could use more power" its only true to some aspects. In my normal day of driving, i dont know how i could be affected by adding more power. its a hard thing to explain but:
If you have your stock car, and you keep modding, you keep measuring power graphs and speed slips. they need for more power becomes apparent because your comparing it to cars that have the ability to go faster.

But what if we just pretend to be a little stupid sometimes, ignore the fine details and numbers. if you want to drive fast, you can go fast. its a nice feeling. maybe a CAI is in order to add that growl sound and fun, but i can say that i am so pleased with the power of my car. i can drive by cars taht are faster than me. but i dont have a problem.

Its only when you start comparing things directly. like racing and such. but if your not a race car driver, the tsx is one damn nice car to drive.

and ill note that i rev the shit out of my car every single day, and still get 400km a tank on the dot. oh well

a little thread of appreciation, TSX cman

With that kind of mentality, the Civic Hybrid would be considered "fast". Sure the TSX is fast enough for driving around... heck, it's even faster than half the vehicles on the road, but you won't find many TSX owners that wouldn't like more power under the hood. There's plenty of untapped power in that 2.4L... look what they've done with the 2.2L S2000 engine (240HP/162ft-lbs).
yeah and dont forget about teh f20c 240bhp 153lb/f out of a 2.0 engine. now that a tuned stock engine
