2005 RSX Import Performance

Torrance, Calif. October 31, 2005

Import Performance magazine tapped famed Japanese tuner Toda for its RSX Challenge entry. Using a Toda stroker kit, displacement was increased to 2.1 liters. This was accomplished with a Toda Racing crankshaft, pistons and connecting rods. The valvetrain was rebuilt with Toda's camshafts, valve springs and cam gears, and engine management is thanks to Hondata's K-Pro system. The chassis is augmented by a Progress Group suspension and Brembo brakes. Veilside's Racing Edition styling package combines with the company's GT wing and carbon fiber hood and a Chargespeed carbon fiber hatch. Inside, Status Racing's Laguna carbon fiber seats, NRG four-point racing harness, EM Racing triangulating bars and Defi BF Imperial gauges keep the driver secure and informed.
