Hey guys, I recently bought a 2008 Acura CSX. I am looking to make into a performance car. I have no previous knowledge of import cars. Seeing how the last car I built was a 1979 chevy el camino. If you can give me any insight into the popular brands for turbos, or superchargers and chips etc. That would be great. And my insurance company asked me if it was a type "S" Acura and I do not know how to know. Anything you guys will tell would help, thanks. :beerchug:

Welcome :wavey:

What type of transmission does it have?

I found this on Wikipedia
Transmission(s)
5-speed manual
5-speed automatic
6-speed manual (Type-S)
So if it has a 6-speed manual, it has to be a Type-S

It also had this to say
The Type-S variant debuted as a 2007 model and uses the identical drivetrain found in the US and Canadian market 2006+ Honda Civic Si which consists of a 2.0L I4, 197 horsepower (147 kW) i-VTEC engine, 6-speed manual transmission and helical limited-slip differential. The "sport-tuned" suspension is identical to the US-only 2007+ Honda Civic Si sedan with stiffer springs, firmer damping and thicker stabilizer bars compared to the regular CSX and is supported on 215/45R17 all-season tires and 17-inch alloy wheels. Unlike the Canadian market Civic Si coupe, the CSX Type-S employs Honda's version of traction control (Vehicle Stability Assist, or VSA) and brake assist. Other amenities include 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, rear wing spoiler with integrated LED brake light, fog lights, bilingual navigation system, a 350-watt 7-speaker audio system, digital audio card reader, Type-S badging and illuminated foot wells.

Fuel consumption is 10.2 L/100 km (27.7 mpg-imp; 23.1 mpg-US) city, 6.8 L/100 km (42 mpg-imp; 35 mpg-US) highway with a recommendation of Premium (91+ octane) fuel.

The 2007 CSX Type-S went on sale on November 6, 2006 with an MSRP of $33,400 Canadian at the same time as the Acura TL Type-S.
