No love for the VR6?RSXs arent that fast in a straight line or 0 to 60.But they are a little on the lighter side.But it depends on what vr6 he has. Maybe he has a R32.

He said the vette drives by the cobra and as you can see from the video above the golf does pull on the vette with him on the bottle from the punch. So long story short golf owned 600+hp vette and cobra.

edit...oh yea the golf isnt EIP tuned nor does it have a gt35r. Its tuned by Tony at T1 performance and has a 62mm turbo.

83k rev limiter sounds amazing, that's why. High revving NA motors are much less to worry about than a FI car, lus if you can somehow track down a white pearl Type S w/ a black swapped interior, you're golden.

and like he said, I/H/E and K Pro will walk us all day. But I just didn't want to buy a used 06 when it was already 2007, since I have a problem with keeping cars I figured it'd just be best to go with the vw but next car I'll probably go back to japanese again, who knows.

DC5 ftw.

If you liked the RSX so much why not go with the K powered Si?

I'm sure with some minor work (cams maybe) it would be an animal.

No... MSRP on a new type-S was around $23,900. That included leather seats, power sunroof, climate control, etc... I've owned 2 RSX's, an '02 and an '03. I was able to get them both for under $23k before tax/license.

They both have the same potential. Your making it seem like its such a big difference. The SI actually has a better intake manifold which becomes very useful once you cam the car.

LOL your comment came out of nowhere. Have you seen the price? One can get the RSX-S 22-23k OTD easily new. Cheaper than the GTI, and comes with leather.

If the car came with: LSD and cd changer, I would take it over the GTI. The RSX is a good daily driver. You really don't need a lot of torque in city streets and the transmission is even smoother than the GTI imo.

Stock, the 1/4 mile would probably lose by a car length.

I didn't get an Si because I didn't really like the look.

Wow I couldn't possibly disagree more. I sold my RSX-S because I felt like it was undrivable in the city and was not fun at all unless I was mashing the throttle on an onramp or something.
