Ahh that's a great (and pretty reliable) power level for the stock motor. And yea a turbo does have that midrange torque rush but really it's mostly a feel thing more than anything... And honestly on track it makes for more headache than benefit.

Now as for the revs. Stop where you are! I also use a 06 TSX motor and after chatting with lots of experts in the area set my limiter at 7600 even though I know I can pick up another 20whp or so spinning to 8k. 8k will work out for a street car maybe that sees a burst here or there (relatively infrequently) to 8k.... but for long term reliability especially when run hard (i.e. track time) you will want to consider bumping rpm down a bit especially at your power level Definitely don't even *think* about 9k on that stock 06 tsx motor.

Also just checking... you did swap the k24 oil pump out for the k20a2 pump right?

Those temps sound great even for cruising temps.

If you don't mind try to get some data after a dyno run or a pull through a few gears. Temps will go up quickly under some load. Exiged and a few others (including myself) are considering upgrading our cooling systems and would love to have some good data points. Your cooling system looks to be pretty capable and I'd love to see what can be expected with an efficient charger and a nice cooling setup.

re: Cooling

I had Ron Davis make a custom radiator for me. So the pattern is in their files.

It is triple pass. I used -20 connectors in stock location. You can change that over to hose connectors.

Ron Davis spec was 550hp. This is very conservative.

Never worried about water temps. Had to turn the electric fan down at the dyno. It is a turbo K20, so lots of heat and power.

It is a 3.5" core, since I did nothave to worry about A/C.

Ron Davis is not cheap, but it is the best.

We are talking about heat exchangers for water to air setups and intake air temps not coolant for the engine. Good info though!

He is using a different dash... The hondata dash converter allows you to keep the factory dash and controls

Just got back from driving this car.

Whoa.... Went thru 4 gears with the e-brake on and it's still way faster than my car... Kinda jealous

Honda gearbox is magical compared to the c60

Motor sounds way better, a lot cleaner power band. Way more responsive

If you wanna win races k24/rotrex is the only way
