Boosted Ride of the Month: January - Jose Fernandez's 2002 Acura RSX Type-S

Name: Jose Fernandez
Location: Tampa, FL
Vehicle: 2002 Acura RSX Type-S
Turbo: Precision 6262 turbocharger

What do you do when your stock 2002 Acura RSX Type-S isnít quite fast enough? Well, if youíre Jose Fernandez you drop in a 2006 K24A2 motor, beef it up and then add a Precision 6262 turbocharger.

The engine build consists of a Benson sleeved block and Manley Turbo Tuff connecting rods, CP 11.1 compression pistons, ACL race bearings, and an OEM head gasket with ARP head studs while Innovative motor mounts help keep the carís heart firmly in place. Proven Power of Tampa ported the cylinder head, RBC and throttle body and also supplied the turbo kit itself, including custom piping. The Acuraís valvetrain got a complete overhaul with Supertech parts including valves, guides, springs and retainers. Handling the fuel supply is an Aeromotive 340 in-tank pump that works with a Bosch 044 in-line pump, an Aeromotive fuel filter with -10 AN feed lines and a -6 AN return, as well as an Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator and gauge, and a Golden Eagle fuel rail feeding 2200 CC injectors. For the drivetrain, Jose opted to add a Synchrotech 1-5 carbon synchro set, a Quaife limited slip differential and a Competition cluch.

The Hondata K-Pro EMS was tuned by Proven Power and made an astounding 689 WHP and 570 WTQ at just 25 PSI on E85 fuel! To catch a video of Joseís beastly RSX on the dyno, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8ONpBPMfc8.

Currently used mostly as a daily driver and for some track time, Jose plans to continue building his RSX until it becomes an all-out, dedicated track queen.
