Acura RSX-S

How fast are they? A guy I know at work drives one(domino's)and he's always going on about how much horsepower it has, how fast it is, and how he beats mustangs with it. It has an injen cai and a cat-back. Are they really that special? I'm not asking this to race him, even though he was hatin on my cobalt once :/ just wondering if hes dilusional about his car or if it really is fast

Will they beat V8 mustangs? Nope. Faster than a 2.2/2.4L? Yep. Faster than an SS? Not a chance.

They come from the factory with a little over 200+ hp...thats about it.
I raced my buddy that has one. I stuck right with him. I had to slow done tho because of my shitty good years when I had them on.

Yea, but it only has 141lb of torque. A base Cobalt has more.

2.4 balts do NOT beat them. and it'd have to be a full bolt and tune 2.4 against a stock rsx-s.

bolt and tune type s' can destroy a s/c balt. sometimes even stage 2.

they have no chance against a turbo ss for sure, but the s/c cars have trouble with em.

it will eat a 2.2 alive unless its boosted.

Yea A 2.4 against a Type S would be a drivers race. Much closer than you think. Fully bolted and tuned 2.4's don't get much credit.
