  1. IS300 vs. ( 2003- 2005 Heavy Competition )

    The Street
    The 2004 TSX has a 200hp I4 with 166ft-lb of peak torque. The car weighs 3100lbs, optimistically. It's a rebadged Euro Accord to compete against the Mazda 6. In this engine/chassis combination it's a nice and fairly well-balanced car if you can't afford to spend the money on a RWD or AWD car...
  2. Official pic of 2004 Maxima (grab your barfbags)

    The Parking Lot
    Somebody obviously thought that rehashing the "4-door sports car" campaign of old and cloning the 350Z details on the Maxima's proportions was a winner of an idea. :roll:
  3. This Troll w/ a CL-S challenges anyone in the Philly area

    The Street
    Zapata = possibly the angriest member of A-CL Forums? :wink: Seriously, the rest of your home site has declared detente. People don't care anymore. You're a second-rate troll. You don't do well with reason nor wit. So suffice it to say you're not going to succeed with whatever you're going...
  4. Acura 3.2CL Type S

    The Street
    As great as the Integra Type R is, it's still quite handicapped by its FWD. Consider that it weighs ~600 pounds lighter (~2600lb) and but still needs 195hp and 205-width tires to be competitive with ~3300lb competitors running 225-width tires and 215-225hp (IS300 and 330i). (In case anybody is...
  5. Anyone from NY?

    The Street
    No. You're describing a simple tuned intake port, although that also works via the Helmholtz principle. The Helmholtz device in question takes the resonance effect much further up the intake tract, through the plenum and all the way up to the end of the intake pipe. Here's two links to help...
  6. A 2.2L CL takes on a IS300 and wins ?

    The Street
    Well, on the other hand, they are in a pretty bad position: * Their car isn't being continued after this generation. * It doesn't get much favorable press, or even many mentions in comparisons. * They're having big problems with their autotrannies and Acura was slow to respond to their...
  7. Anyone from NY?

    The Street
    Well, 200cc's is close to the difference between a CL-S and a 350Z (~300cc's). I think that says everything.
  8. Anyone from NY?

    The Street
    No it does not. The intake box I'm talking about is right on top of your engine. It's the so-called Mystery Mod that you guys have been talking about all of last year. That's the Helmholtz pressure-wave device. So if indeed you do know a lot, please don't try to BS us. You might be...
  9. Acura vs. IS

    The Street
    Why just 1/4 mile? So the CL guys can pretend they didn't have a problem with shitty brakes and boatlike handling?
  10. Anyone from NY?

    The Street
    I can understand the prohibition against NOS (you can get a riduculously NOS'ed car to run heroically for a few runs...), but there is no justification against SC or turbo. And did you even know that the Type S's intake box is known as a Helmholtz pressure-wave supercharger? Technically, you'd...
  11. i invite all of you honda homos (acura) to come here and ...

    The Street
    Update: Nobody over at A-CL forums is taking my challenge to run at either an autocross or open track. Instead of just leaving it alone, one rather persistent replier is trying to shift the emphasis off the fact that nobody there has yet mustered up the guts to run me, and is instead now going...

    The Street
    TheModMole, I also left a track/autocross challenge there in your home forum. It's a friendly thing, but also something to settling this issue about how the CL supposedly equalizes the handling differential with just springs and sways. Would you please bring it to the attention of the...
  13. The 3.2 CL Type S

    The Street
    Not really as it pertains to new cars, actually. The E46 has been pretty fairly slammed amongst grassroots hardcore roadracers. It's just too heavy (e46 3-series-derived, maybe not so relative to your frame-of-view) and both understeery and oversteery at the same time (hard to explain in a few...
  14. The 3.2 CL Type S

    The Street
    "All things being equal" is *kinda* strange to apply to an IS300 with any of the currently available stage 2 turbo/SC kit costing ~$6K and a CL-S with a Comptech SC (that's the only one available so far, is that correct?), a smaller pulley, with an expensive built bottom-end, perhaps all...
  15. The 3.2 CL Type S

    The Street
    If that's what you really think without qualification, then there isn't much hope of reasoning with you. If you somehow believe that drag racing alone is the be-all-end-all of performance, then your rational holds. But it isn't, not by a long shot. I mean, why aren't you in a pimped out Nova...
  16. Acura 3.2CL Type S

    The Street
    I known, man. But what it takes is for peeps like us to either just swallow our irritation and let things pass (and hope the group as a whole does it too), or go about countering the conflict. I did this during the old flame a year or so ago war so it's kinda second nature to me. Forgive the...
  17. The 3.2 CL Type S

    The Street
    Well, I guess it makes sense since granny's panties is all that you're gonna get with that new-age Thunderbird SC, my friend. :wink: Dude, lay off here and go home. I'm sure you have better things to do.
  18. The 3.2 CL Type S

    The Street
    :lol: I take it with a set of springs and sways you must know everything there is to know about the curves. :lol: Oh, the humanity. :lol:
  19. Acura 3.2CL Type S

    The Street
    sidemarker, I kindly suggest that you return to your home forum. If you've got nothing better in your life than to waste your own time continuing a pointless and rehashed flame war, then I feel sorry for both you and everyone else who gets sucked into it. I've got better things to do, and...
  20. Hey guys, i'm back... (if you care)

    The Parking Lot
    Whoa. Congrats, Thanh! Now you have the project to trump all projects. :wink: L'Chaim! :D
