Default How can I get my Type S faster than an Evo?

I have an 03 RSX Type S

All I have is an Apexi exhaust so far

Im sure I need to get a turbo kit to compete with an Evo right?

You can't, your car is not built for such power and you would have to replace so many components it would be like rebuilding the car - just bolting on easy power mods would cause car would wear out in no time and result in unpredictable and dangerous handling.

You still wont keep up with an Evo because all you have is FWD.

Sell it and buy anything else.

Honestly, here's the problem. You can do all you want to make it keep up with a stock evo in a straight line...slicks, built engine, turbo kit, etc. Then he just turns the boost up and you lose again.

Next problem? First turn comes up, and because you set up the suspension to beat the EVO in a straight line, you can't turn for squat, so you go off track and lose again.

They aren't meant to compete. Sure, you can make the RSX modified beat a STOCK EVO in one area of performance, but you will sacrifice other areas. Good drag launch=stiff rear springs and bouncy ride, along with poor handling. Good handling=poor drag launch.
