What's the deal with the K&N car? Its nice what they did with it, but the K20a2 from the RSX type-s?
Thats like saying, "we took the motor out of this 5.7L chev 1/2 ton, and replaced it with the motor with a 5.7L out of a gmc 1/2 ton!" Wow! ???
What, they gained 3hp with practially the same motor? Sounds like a lot of work for reason to me? Correct me if i'm wrong!

That car was stupid and so was the Si the other guy drove. It was a supercharged 2.4 liter vtec. From a TSX!! The guy complemented on how he loved the sound well then he should test drive the TSX not the Civic Si. Dammit people! Keep the original motor and upgrade that don't do a different motor, that's like a different car.

I mean I could understand putting in the TSX motor with a super charger...at least there is an upgrade in performance, but the motor from the RSX-S...yeah I was laughing about that one too. If I had the option of any three of those I would stick with the original Si motor that comes with it. Sounds like it is a blast to drive.

I thought the same thing. I was actually laughing a bit trying to figure out why they would swap to a slightly older version of essentially the same engine. Three horsepower, WOOT!
