Default G8GT vs RSX type R

Have a guy at my church who keeps trash talking the G. He keeps telling me his RSX typeR can take me any day. He has a whole list of mods he keeps telling me about, but he will never open the hood. I'm thinking he is completely stock.

How do you think we will do? I have been asking him to run but he never wants to. Last week when I was on the SLS he said he wanted to run me this week. Looks like i'm pulling the G8 out of storage.

I will post results.

Depends if he is modded or not and if so how much. Stock to stock you'll kill him. If he has a power adder it might be a different story.

I had a friend in HS who had a first Gen RSX with the 6 speed. That thing was torquey as hell and could pull decently and cornered well. Stock vs Stock I would take the G8, but not by a ton. If he is heavily modded you will have your work cut out for you, plus the weight advantage obviously goes to him.

I'm pretty sure RSX typeRs weren't sold in North America.
Only the TypeS was sold here. Is his car imported, a conversion or something else?

Also depends on if he can actually shift it well. My guess is that if he keeps "listing" whatever mods he has on the car and doesnt want to lift his hoodand be a good sport it is probably little more than an intake, header, exhaust situation. What mods are on the G8?

Could have sworn it had a typeR badge. Might just be rebadged.

No typeR here but very easy to get the JDM type R stuff. 1/4 mile times stock are 15.1 for the 02-04 type s and 14.9 for the 04-06 type s.

You will do what Alabama did to ND last night. And it will be glorious.

on a note I had for a bit a RSX Type S. The thing was slow as balls.

I still have my stock RSX Type S and there is no way that it can keep up with my GXP on a straight road. Not even close. Slow tight twistys could be a different story though.

Well if you don't hear a MASSIVE turbo... you may as well pull down your pants and take a dump on his hood, because the car's already a turd. SLOW.

Some people are clueless when it comes to imports. It doesn't take forced induction to make Honda/Acura fast. Just sounds like a bunch of what ifs going on. The kid probably has nothing done to the stock RSX K20A motor, but he could also have something serious going on under the hood. If you only know LSx motors and have know idea about Honda or any other import motors, then you shouldn't assume anything. I have seen plenty of V8 guys get there feelings hurt because they assumed that colony of Aricanized beeeeezzzz were all sound and no sting!!

IMHO achieving 300whp on a K series motor is not a challenge anymore and can be done for cheap. If the kid wants an easy 300whp all he has to do is keep his current K20A head, Crower cams, Supertech valvetrain, K24A block from a Honda Pilot, Honda CR-V, Honda Accord, Acura TSX, 12' Honda Civic Si (my point is they are readily available blocks $100-200 used, $500 new bare block) 0.020″ overbore w/12.5:1 or 13.7:1 (E85) Wiseco pistons, Eagle H-beam rods, ported intake manifold, 70mm throttle body, 4-1 header, CAI or ITB for more power, 520cc or 750cc (E85) injectors, Walboro 255lph intank fuel pump and Aeromotive FPR all compatible for E85.

Just because a car looks stock doesn't mean it is. I'm sure plenty of forum members me included, have had people assume the G8 is slower than it actually is then end up getting a surprise they weren't expecting. 300whp in a light weight car is nothing to take to lightly!!

Yeah, 200whp was the goal for a DD back 8+ years ago. I imagine its close to 300 now.

So what your saying is if he has basically rebuilt the entire motor he can take an almost stock g8?...I sure hope so. Lol just given ya some hell man. Id say its safe to say you know more about the honda 4 bangers than the average g8 owner knows about them.

This is a no-brainer. Even if he is supercharged or turbo'd you will smoke him I guarantee it. And sounds like chances are good he's neither. When I had my TSX for awhile (K24A2 also) I researched every mod there was out there. Short of a complete engine swap nothing on the market was worth a ****. Even going S/C was a complete waste of $$. Not even 300hp with full bolt-ons, SC and tune. Seriously, go destroy this guy and watch the look on his face

I had a 1.8 vtec Honda 300whp on 14lbs. Enough to give c5 vetted all they wanted and more

A properly Turbo'd Honda is not to be taken lightly.

My money is on you unless he has a good power adder.

Had a run in with an older(hatchback si) on the hwy with my stock gxp. He hung right with me from 70 to 140. No clue what was done to it but I did hear a bov. At that point, I no longer laughed at ricers.

2.4 liter motors are making 300-330whp N/A goals and 2.7 liter motors are making 400+ whp N/A with compression like 14:5.1 on E85.

LMAO !! He doesn't have to necessarily rebuild anything. I was only picking random parts since every company seems to make Honda parts. He could actually build a pretty stout motor using an 11:1.1 TSX block and a K20A3 head w/ cams, CAI, header and exhaust.

It's funny to think that a big bore motor is a 2.7 liter 4 banger
