not bad for a 2.35L I4

Still a bit too zingy and not very torquey.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

my main beef with acura is the styling, C&D once said the CL typeS had 'gov. issue styling' and other mags have critized it as well. i know this is a different car, but it still looks kinda boring

i went to drive it today, they had one in stock, but some truck was loading it to take it to another dealer. they said come back monday, but i'm going back to MD on monday. i guess i'll test it in 2 weeks or so, unless there's an acura dealer near school
