Talking Re: turbo for rsx

It is possible. Anything is possible with cars mang! I don't know alot about the RSX, but there was a story in a Sport Compact Car, or Import Tuner magazine, whichever, and some guy boosted his RSX. There was a thread either on this forum or the Prelude forum, and it was pretty much a "which would win" kinda thing. People said the RSX doesn't do well with boost, but then again, people talk crap, and there are haters for everything, so yeah, go for it! Just be smart about it. Later!

Re: turbo for rsx

Re: turbo for rsx

Base RSX responds very well to turbo. The Type-S would ideally need beefing to run turbo responsibly due to very high compression. I say "responsibly" because you could do it without internals, but longevity and reliability would be an issue.

Re: turbo for rsx

Ya you can definately turbocharge that monster, but make sure you consider the resale value of the car and things like the factory warranty before you make the plunge (unless your a total badass and you laugh in the face of danger - then keep on trucking sir!) I would be very suprised if you couldnt find a prefabbed kit that was ready to rock and roll!

Re: turbo for rsx

yes there is a turbo kit in production just for the rsx not the rsx-s, i think its made by greddy, im not sure if its easy as bolt on but i dont think its very hard to do just a lil tuning and hw, like everyone else said and u'll be just fine
