2005 RSX SPEED Magazine

Torrance, Calif. October 31, 2005

For its entry in the RSX Challenge, SPEED magazine upgraded its 2005 Acura RSX Type-S with a GReddy turbo kit and a Cosworth-built bottom end featuring Darton sleeves, Crower rods and a Ferrea valvetrain. Handling is enhanced with KW Suspension coilovers and thicker anti-roll bars. StopTech front brakes combine with A-SPEC rear pads and slotted rotors to augment the RSX's stopping power. An Acura A-SPEC rear wing compliments the RSX's profile, along with Flex-A-Lite molded windows and Graphicsworks vinyl graphics. Inside are an A-SPEC shift knob and Autometer gauges.
