These guys simply cannot drive. Their times are SLOWER than most 6gens. If the 6gens go to 60 in about 7.5 seconds and do the qm in around 15.8-16.1 this cannot be right. I'd say the car would do 60 in high 6's and the qm in low to mid 15's. MT tested it at 6.6 and about 15 flat. These people should learn how to drive.

That's what I'm saying. 40 more hp, an extra gear, and they run slower than a 6th gen v6...doesnt make any sense. And I thought motortrend ran a 14.9 like a month ago. 1.4 second difference?!

these are all just data points. They're by no means "gold" numbers. They are merely the performance that one driver got with one car at a certain time with highly variable conditions.

MT gets a 14.98 and now Motor Week gets a 16.3. C&D got a 15.5. Average all that out, along with other times, and you get something in the low-7's to 60 mph, and a low/mid-15 1/4 mile pass, which is about what the car will realistically run.

The 89 mph trap indicates the car is making decent power compared to a Gen6 which trapped at 86mph or so, so it's definitely faster. They probably just had an awful launch but they didn't list their 60' times. An 89 mph trap is more consistent with a mid-15 run, so pay no attention to the ET. The trap indicates the car has some serious pull.

I'm sorry, but a TL-S is definitely quicker than a 2K3 Accord V6.
why would that be? in stock form there is only 20hp dif. you have headers so there is a much greater dif. but stock v. stock it will be close

you are aware that the type s is not a whole lot faster than the reg. arent you? thats a 35hp dif. too, not 20.

What are you smoking? :confused:

The Type-S is a whole TON faster than the non S's

The Acura's also have something called low-end torque which Honda consistently fails to put in it's non-Acura products, so the Acura's will get off the line a lot faster than the 03 AV6's too.

i know a couple of guys with TL-S with just intake or exhaust, and maybe spark plugs, they all run low to mid 14s consistently.
This isn't stock.

You're also saying that with just an intake, a TL-S auto will run as fast as a CL-S 6spd. Yeah...uh-huh :rolleyes:
