Default Re: tsx top speed??

Acceleration wise I believe the Accord has a slight edge on the TSX. The
Accord V6 Coupe 6speed definitely have a VERY large acceleration advantage
but one's a coupe and the other is a sedan. I saw the TSX with navigation
at the dealership when we went to test drove the MDX, it looks like A very
nice car but the price is steep once you add all the goodies such as
Navigation system etc...

The TSX will out handle the Accord (at least the Sedan), I have not seen
handling numbers on the Accord Coupe yet but the acceleration on the Accord
Coupe is only fraction of a second slower than the S2000, it does something
like 14.2 @99 MPH 1/4 mile. Which is awesome!

I think the Accords are better value. If the TSX came with a 240 or 250 HP
engine... it would be almost perfect!

Cut the stroke and add a turbo ...

.... or cut the price about $2k.

Yeah I know, Honda will turbo an engine right after they release the
V8.
