    Are you talking about the little cans of meat? Or the Viagra ads that come to your e-mail? Yeah, I wouldn't want either of those really...

    rsx's are heavy, and people also underestimate how much power a rsx puts down to the ground, yeah a base is 160 and a type S is 200, but not to the wheels, i think a stock base is only like 125-130 to the wheels, so yeah its gotta do with people not paying attention, odds are, hes not gonna waste the time, to leave a 6speed, and swap it out to a base motor, unless he bought a base and converted it, but either way, looking at the crank hp, your gonna think its alot faster then it really is, i think ive only gotten my base, with basic boltons up to about 125mph, theyre quick, not fast

    If you are still checking on this thread, a typeS motor doesn't have the stupid looking black plastic intake manifold, its a normal aluminum one.
    thats the easiest way to know.
