  Acura RSX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Acura RSX is a car marketed by Acura in the United States and Canada as the replacement for the Acura Integra.
The base RSX has the K20A3 motor with a specific output of 160 hp (119 kW) and is offered with either an automatic or a five-speed manual transmission; and the Type-S has a 200 hp (2002-2004) K20A2 or 210 hp (157 kW) in 2005 K20Z1 motor and a short-throw 6 speed manual transmission.
Despite its popularity, the RSX (as with the Integra before it) has always been seen by some as being more worthy of a Honda badge than an Acura one, and with the release of the 8th generation Honda Civic Si, this is even more apparent.

 RSX-11 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
But, there are differences between RSX and OSRV because of differences between SM and PDP' hardware and recognised by Soviet engineers bugs in RSX.
Dave Cutler was the project leader for RSX-11M, which was an adaptation of the earlier RSX-11D for a smaller memory footprint.
"RSX was a separate path at DEC and the progenitor more than anything of VMS that went to NT via Dave Cutler." -- Gordon Bell, Vice President, Research and Development, Digital Equipment Corporation.

 CanadianDriver: First Drive - 2002 Acura RSX
RSX and RSX Premium models have a new 160 horsepower 2.0 litre DOHC 16 valve i-VTEC ('i' for intelligent) four cylinder engine that's lighter and more powerful than the previous 140 horsepower 1.8 litre unit.
RSX and RSX Premium models have a new 5-speed manual transmission with improved shift feel, and a new, optional 5-speed automatic 'Sportshift' transmission with manual sequential shift mode (replacing the previous 4-speed automatic).
Acura is targeting 'single male buyers in their early 30's' with the RSX and expects the Premium model to make up 50% of sales with the standard RSX and Type S each accounting for 25% of sales.

 Musclecarclub.com - Acura Integra / RSX
Introduction: The Acura Integra was launched, along with the Legend, in March of 1986 as part of the brand new Acura division, the upscale division of Honda.
The Integra is due to be replaced by the RSX in the summer of 2001.
The RSX was only available as a three door hatchback; the four door sedan was discontinued.

 Acura RSX Type S, RSX A-SPEC - RSportsCars.com
For 2005, a larger diameter master cylinder was applied to increase hydraulic pressure, the rigidity of the brake pedal increased and the pedal stroke was reduced.
Side sills on the RSX are now body colored, while the side sills on the Type-S are more substantial, and wrap further around the car to highlight the new wheels and tires.
The rear of the RSX was redesigned with new taillight assemblies, a new bumper, larger diameter exhaust tips and, on the Type-S, a deck lid spoiler.

 Acura RSX
Many of the details for the new Acura RSX are still not finalized, though we know it will appear in the summer of 2001 as a 2002 model.
The RSX is equipped with 10.3-inch vented discs in front and 10.2-inch discs at the rear.
This is classified by Acura as a 4 passenger automobile, that is why there is the "thing" between the rear seats.

 2006 Acura RSX - Ratings & Reviews - Ann Job - MSN Autos   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Acura's Integra is gone, replaced by a tight-handling, well-equipped, sporty hatchback, the RSX.
On a racetrack, the RSX Type S was responsive and predictable in its reactions, with the light rear end moving out a bit as I'd lift off the throttle in a corner.
Acura went away from the Integra's independent, double wishbone front suspension and installed a MacPherson strut suspension in the front of the RSX.

 R&T ROADandTRACK.com --- First Drives: 2005 Acura RSX Type-S (11/2004)
The RSX is shod with cast alloy wheels and 205/55R-16 tires.
Power for the RSX comes from the 2.0-liter variable-valve-timing inline-4 that is capable of producing 160 bhp at 6500 rpm and 141 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm.
The RSX is a truly solid performer on the road and on the track.

 2002 Acura RSX Type-S - The Car Connection
The new RSX Type-S, while on paper packing more heat than the old Type R (200 hp vs. 195 for the old car) is not at the top of Acura's lineup, and really is more of a commuter with some punch than a knife-edged runner like the old Integra was.
Both versions of the RSX use the same basic 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which is larger than the 1.8-liter engine used in the now-defunct Integra.
Inside, however, is where the RSX clearly beats the old Integra, with almost race-car-like, extra-deep bucket seats that are wonderfully snug and supportive.

 Acura RSX Review, NSeXcitement Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The RSX has received a warm embrace from the Erie buying public, which is a nice way to say Contemporary sold all of their 5-speed / 6-speed cars the first day they were available.
I was pleased to see that Acura equipped the RSX with a three-button cruise control (the "Cancel" button is often omitted in the lower models, leaving only two steering wheel mounted controls.) this is a nice touch, and gives the car an edge in my opinion.
Acura dispensed with the availability of a four-door model in the initial conception of the RSX, and that is undoubtedly part of a demographic appeal to the youth market.

 MMsports 2K1 - Acura RSX
Acura expects to sell about 30,000 RSX's per year which is less than the peak sales of the Integra but it costs a little bit more.
Acura sees the car competing with the BMW 325Ci, Mercedes C230 Coupe, and Audi TT (according to Edmunds.com but that seems a bit misguided considering those cars are quite a bit more expensive and are closer in philosophy to the Acura TL/CL).
All initial reviews of the RSX report that the handling has not been hurt and that the RSX Type-S's suspension is better than the Integra GS-R that it replaces.

Acura automobiles-from the most exotic offering, the aging NSX, to the most affordable, the RSX Type-S on these pages-are still paragons of mechanical precision and fine craftsmanship.
Introduced in the summer of 2001, the RSX is the successor to Acura's beloved Integra.

 2005 Acura RSX Type S on carlist.com
It was Acura’s stripped-down boy-racer and the kids who built the import street drag racing phenomenon adored it; making it one of the most frequently stolen vehicles of that decade.
But when no one was looking the Acura Integra R was given a chin-lift and a smart new fashionable suit of clothes.
The RSX Type S is a fun sports coupe that returns good gas mileage and should rarely need to visit the shop for more than regular servicing.

 2005 Acura RSX Review - ForbesAutos.com
This sporty little RSX is cut from the same stellar mold as larger Acuras.
The RSX is dug by the "tuner" crowd, kids with computers, wrenches and lots of time (plus 15 part-time jobs to support their habit) who like to take stock Japanese compacts and convert them into Porsche killers, one part or tweaked microchip at a time.
Meanwhile, the RL, TL and latecomer TSX appeal to a somewhat older, wealthier clientele, the people that Acura was out to capture back in the 1980s.

After three model years, the Acura RSX has been treated to a thorough freshening for 2005, adding new appeal to the hatchback sportster.
As common on Acura products, the controls are logically designed and ergonomically placed, with all switchgear mounted at steering wheel height for easy access and viewing while driving.

 Car and Driver Magazine - Acura RSX Type-S - January 2005   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Clearly, the RSX team had something that wasn't broken.
And since new is the essence of the car biz, they fixed it anyway, a midterm update that can't be called a major makeover but is too comprehensive to be called a mere freshening.
Acura claims the revised RSX delivers performance favorably comparable with that of "European sports cars." We have to wonder just which European sports cars the press materials are referring to, since the RSX operates in a class composed of small, $25,000 front-drive sports coupes.

 Acura RSX-Type S horsepower rating? - Honda-Acura.net
Last night I was talking with Oscar Jackson owner/founder of Jackson Racing and he saying the same thing, that the Acura RSX Type S isn't even close to the 200hp advertised.
Also if this were true Acura owners would have known about this by now and would be at Honda's front steps.
He basically said he was dissappointed in the RSX Type S dyno results they pulled in and when they engineered their supercharger for the car they said the motor was crap.

Acura’s RSX obviously tops the list of must-haves in this emerging market, but RSX also serves as an important point of entry for the brand, introducing performance enthusiasts to the Acura line-up of performance luxury vehicles.
While the RSX comes with either a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission, the Type-S is equipped exclusively with a 6-speed, close-ratio manual transmission for quick, responsive shifting.
