Conclusion
It's amazing when you consider the potential of the K-series motors now being offered in every Honda and Acura sold on the market today. Who could have imagined that slapping on an intake, header, and reflashed ECU would offer crisp throttle response and improved power from the midrange to redline. A drive around the block revealed a day and night difference when hammering down the accelerator. Our ultimate test phase was established in a third gear run which is known by any TSX owner to come off as sluggish when coasting on the road and abruptly applying the gas. The newfound power was definitely noticeable as third gear now pushed us back into the seats and the vehicle felt as if the TSX was equipped with a race transmission.
