Has anyone thought of an RDX Type S? It wouldn't be hard for Acura to do since all they have to do is up the Turbo. Assuming the base RDX starts at $32,000 and the Tech at $36,000, an 300hp 2.3L Turbo starting at $40,000 would look great! It would have the uprate engine, larger brakes, 19" summer tires, the full SH-AWD system, and adjustable suspension. Honda could add a few luxury feature in there too like a pwr pass seat. This thing will be superfast--maybe in the 5 sec. range and shutup all those people complaining that the RAV4 has more horsepower than it!

The RL weighs roughly the same as the RDX, has 300 horsepower (ok 290 for sticklers) and doesn't come close to doing a 5 second 0 - 60 (6.5 - 7.0 seconds depending upon which test you believe). With a lot more frontal area worth of air to push, the RDX would need a ton of boost out of that turbo to get down to 5 seconds.
That said, I like your idea for a Type S RDX as a limited production performance version. Maybe in a few years??

Half of that stuff is already available as an accessory.
