    Si vs TSX

    Hello im new to this forum and I know that the si and tsx share the same engine ( my dad has an 06 TSX) but I was wondering what else do they share. I love the way my dads car drives. And was wondering if the si is comparable. Though I didn't drive his car much with the stock suspension does the throttle response and clutch feel similar? Do they share the same transmission minus the LSD? In little under a year im really considering getting the new Si. I was looking at the new speed3 but after hearing about how the fuel pump can fail with just an intake I decided to look at something that can take mods without craping out on me. Thanks in advance.

    -Nick

    If you want to get a 4 banger go for the civic if you want more power go for the V-6 TSX

    V6 would be nice but it's not really what I want.

    Curious:

    What cars have you beaten? I've noticed it's OKAY speed wise.. But this thing really can't beat anything that's "sporty"... Maybe regular sedans..

    Depends what you're looking for. The Civic Si is lighter, and though it's more refined than the previous generation, it's more raw and alive than the Acura. the TSX has a double wishbone suspension, which in theory is superior, but it's a larger and heavier car, tuned more towards refined sportiness. Think of it as a more grown up version of the Si.

    If you're looking strictly at performance, get the Si.

    they are both good cars but price wise if you dont want to spend too much then i would suggest the SI compared to the TSX cause you will always spend more on the acura anyway just for the name, the TSX has the V-6(which would be much more expensive) and it also has the 4 banger too which is the engine thats in the SI with same power, the only difference is for the SI you will have to put in premium where as the TSX only takes regular. but like mauibuilt2003 said it all depends on your preference to sporty or a luxury style sporty

    Not saying i've stomped boss 302's but I take down moderately fast cars like v-6 mustangs. Even my friends v8 mach 1 mustang but that's only because he doesn't know how to launch, lol. Not saying this thing is blue lighting but it's pretty damn fast for a civic, and capable of a lot more.
