RSX Type-S vs 335i

A friend of mine says that one of his teammates on a bball team says that his RSX Type-S can smoke a 335i.. I found it very amusing, but just wondering, what kind of engine swaps are there for it? He said that he swapped out his engine and got 2.5 lit... Thats all I know. Hmmm, anybody familiar with RSX's???

swapped out his k series for a 2.5? The k20 itself is already a good engine to mod. Your friend might just be talking out of his ass. k20's properly modded can do really well though so it depends really.

A friend of mine bought an old CRX hatch for about 800, did a K20 swap, took out the backseats and passenger seat, changed cams, intake, exhaust on it and got a tune. He does high 11's but thats an extreme case with extreme weight savings.

He could have nicely swapped tuned K24 engine.
(If he isnt' BSing).

I wouldnt say he will "smoke" 335I, but would be close or even faster.
Some of nicely modded RSX's are quick.

Quite possible. A lot of 400hp turbo'ed RSXs out there that run well against Corvettes at the drag strip.

http://www.intensepower.com/grtukitrsxty.html

Or this 645 hp turbo'ed RSX.

http://www.k20a.org/forum/showthread.php?t=879

But frankly...unless your name is "Vin Diesel"...and you live your life "one quarter mile at a time"....who cares.

Yeah the K20 motor is apparently a great engine.

There's a reason why that guy...oh jeez I forget the name...who swaps the Honda K20 motor into the Lotus Elise and Exige. Makes it MUCH faster. They had a video of in Best Motoring.

I'm not saying the RSX is the perfect car for me. Just saying that it has potential to embarass other car owners.

I think you're talking about Joe McCarthy. There's also a couple of other outfits who make kits for the conversion.

... hahha

Yeah I just joined RSX forums clubrsx last night to do some research .. Like what everyone said, I guess they can be made pretty fast if you tune it right and invest a lot of money and time. don't forget effort.. anyways, my friend said that the guy with the rsx wanted to do a couple runs against me.. even if hes turbo'd or supercharged, I'm pretty sure I shouldn't have a problem since I'm running a tune. Damn wait a sec... I forgot he has v-tech.......

Three of my friends had a rsx-s...with an intake, race header, exhaust and an ecu flash..they run around 13.9 seconds in the quartermile..maybe a little quicker with better tires...thats with the stock K20 engine...with a supercharger..i believe they run around mid-13's. maybe a little lower...so you should be fine unless his is turbo'd...they have different stage turbo kits that haul, but that car suffers from massive wheelspin..FWD with no LSD..but i think that 2.5L engine is BS..if u dont have the k20..people swap in the k24 engine..thats about it..

To be completely honest with you if he's turboed and tuned well then from a roll the 335i will be left behind by at least 3 cars. A k24 block makes good torque and when combined with a K20 head it's like the old school Ls/Vtec the Frankenstein. Thats if he is in the 400whp range. Honestly I say you run him from a dig and get the hit cause with all that power even with a 2-step the RSX is going to spin 1st-3rd. I know from experience. Don't be surprised if asks for a 40 roll or even a 60. Cause thats their sweet spot in 3rd. Here take a look at this video and you'll see what I mean. Keep in mind this is only a GSR motor on boost. Granted it's a hatch with 2 people in it. But you'll see what I mean as to why I wanted a lower roll to give give him somewhat of an advantage yet he still spins at 40.

unless there is some seroius weight reduction or F/I an RSX doesn't stand a chance unless you just can't drive. They can be quick, but unless there is serious money in it there is no threat to a 335 at all, especially if you are tuned.
