    Okay, thanks. Not trying to jack this thread, i was just wondering because I just purchased a HKS downpipe. Thanks for the info!

    Just to clear the air... His RSX was a base, He bought the JDM Integra Type-R motor and Tranny. It is less restricted than the USDM Type-s model, but the Type-r has LSD, and i believe the s does not. The two motors produce practically the same numbers, but the Type-r is just a little better. He also has type-s suspension upgrade. Eventually he wants to Turbo his car. Really its a nice swap, and being that he is only 18 and he did it with me and a couple of fiends who are all in high school it is pretty cool. It is pushing 240-50 but we are gonna go to a dyno here soon to get the exact numbers. He has a high flow Cat-back exhaust, WR intake, Headers.. Im not gonna lie its a nice car, but i dont think it has a chance against the subie..

    Oh and the HKS Dp is a Bell-Mouth...

    With the mods you’re planning I think the RSX is going to be no worries. I knew someone who had and s with the type r cams and other goodies like your friend had. He was running I believe hondata ems too, I could be wrong (not to into honda's). There quick for a na car but not compared to an evo3 16g wrx.

    For the SRT-8 with just bolt ons you will have trouble, with nitrous, you’re not going to win. My guess would put the charger in the low 13's. The one you want to race sounds like it can do 12's. The wrx with the mods listed maybe low 13's.

    There is really to many factors to tell, ^ my opinions though.

    A good driver would also have a heavy influence on that.

    Or a set of tires. Charger is auto so if he can hook up he can just smash the gas and hold on.

    Type-S has LSD. Problem with those honda engines is the lack of torque. For your friend to launch he has to rev up pretty high and feather the clutch just right and FWD doesnt help... you will be fine.

    Also he doesnt have a type-r, he has maybe a type-s with mods and hes calling it a R. Thats like me modding my WRX and telling people i have an STI.

    The charger is going to walk you... if he doesnt just burn his tires.

    type- S does not have LSD. I know, I just traded mine for my WRX.

    Civic SI's have LSD.

    Type-s get no wheel hop if you have ESMM's or stiff motor mounts, ive launched mine a hundred times with no problem.

    With that being said stage 2 WRX will still roll RSX. Type-r cams or not.

    Type-R:
    The Honda Integra Type-R, sold in Japan has reduced weight, a 220 PS / 164 kW / 217 hp (162 kW) K20A I4 engine (Japan-only; Oceania models have an engine similar to the Acura RSX-S), as well as a limited slip differential (LSD) and stiffer springs and shocks, 4 piston Brembo brakes, 17" wheels on Bridgestone Potenza tires, Recaro suede seats, body trim, and more

    Type-S:
    Type-S has a 210 hp (157 kW) in 2005 K20Z1 motor and a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission which has been linked to many technical problems with inside components such as synchro and gears 3 and 5. For the 2006 model year vehicles Honda switched to the Rev 8/04 SAE standards for measuring hp.The Type-S was rated at 201 hp (150 kW). In 2005 the RSX Type-S received camshafts, b-pipe and muffler, 4.7 final drive ratio, crankshaft pulley and the intake snorkel duct from the Japanese model Honda Integra Type-R. Another major change made to the inline VTEC-i engine was the use of a timing chain rather than a timing belt, which reduced maintenance needs.


    The engine my friend has is the K20A, the Type-R motor, we bought it cheap off a JDM motor selling company. Yes His RSX has LSD, because it is the Type-R Tranny... But his car has the Stiffer Type-S suspension setup over his old base setup. ANd yes the Type-R motor is rated higher than the Type-s motor. I know for a fact that it is a Type-R, i have seen it and helped to put t in...

    SO...

    The SRT-8 will smoke you in the quarter. especially if it's wearing slicks.

    The only way to really prove this RSX-(r?) thing is to take both cars to your local track during open track day.

    Please, for the love of god, do NOT drag on public roads. That is one of the cardinal mistakes of young drivers and given the lack of driving experience, one of the biggest sources of fatalities.

    Take the cars to the track and test it out for yourself

    What kind of nitrous is the SRT8 running and how big of a shot? It depends on what else he has done (traction mods) That car could be a 10 second car or quicker with those mods.

    I really wouldn't know about the RSX, I would say it would be a close one, you should be way up front from the get go.
