Default 2006 EL

When is Acura going to announce the new EL for Canada? Or is it the
CSX?

Google is your friend.

Sounds like a Civic with a slightly larger engine. Which is cool. Bigger is
better. Now if they could just shoehorn an Olds 425 in there...

Ages ago my gearhead younger brother put a 427 in a Vega. He couldn't
explain why! Anyway, he chopped the firewall up to do it. He said it steered
worse than a normal Vega (if there ever was such a thing as a "normal" Vega)
but accelerated like crazy. Uh-huh.

It's the brakes you have to watch out for. I put a monster motor in a
1970 Malibu fifteen years or so ago. It still had the original drum
brakes, front and rear. I quickly got reminded that it's just as
important to be able to scrub speed off quickly, as well as put it on.

Front disc brakes and a servo were next on the list...

You haven't felt bad brakes until you've experienced unboosted drums
all-around.

You know what's really weird? Modern power disc brakes that are grindingly
down to the steel are WAY better than manual drums in perfect condition.
Odd, that.

And hey, view the worst I've ever seen, here:
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/rusty...old_rotors.jpg

Even worse than that: Pre-war cars with NO FRONT BRAKES. Push the pedal and
you'd swear that pedal was not connected to anything at all. Frightening
until you get used to it.
