Except for the RDX, no Honda or Acura cars have turbos or superchargers.

no the RSX Type-S is a non-turbo engine but it has i-VTEC which will give it more horse power at high RPM. the engine come N/A(natural aspiration) meaning that the only charge of incoming air is from the down force of the piston, where as a Fi(Forced Induction), turbo, air is pushed in from the turbo driven by exhaust gases. a Turbo for this is an aftermarket application. the car already has 200 @ 7400 RPM from the factory
