    is there any difference other than the motor/tranny?

    ie: suspension or brakes or something?

    If there isn't much difference, i might try to find a cheap rsx and just throw a k24/20 frankenstein in there.

    The Type S's brakes and suspension are a little bit firmer...

    I've seen type S's selling in the 6000 range. Just pay a few extra bucks and get the better car.

    The RXS-S was an uprated verion of thr RXS.
    Amoung the differences:
    RSX-S/RSX
    K20a2 vs K20a3 (the a2 with 197 {197 hp, true VTEC} vs 160 from the a3 with i-vtec

    Stiffer springs
    different gearing
    differently sized front and rear sway bars
    There were also some chasis stiffening bits that I want to use on my EP3.
