    this might be a repost but i was just reading up on the K series motor on wiki and the 2007 acura rdx is coming with a K23 turbo'ed 240hp/260tq

    and K series have cast iron sleeves like the f series?
    manual boost controller ftw?

    Old news for me but that's just cause I was looking into buying an suv a few months ago. Isn't the MDX turbocharged also

    I checked one out awhile back at the Acura dealership it's a cross between a civic and an MDX. I didn't care for it to much since IMO it was too cheap feeling for an Acura.
    Does have a nice look, but for the price it should have a tad bit better interior.

    Pretty sure it's not a V6. It's part of the K-series (K20, K24, etc.).

    CRX would be crazy

    you'll have to strap a fat chick to the hood to get any traction off the launch
