i'm still wondering why didn't honda/acura continue to make a 5 cylinder engine. it would've been a perfect engine for the TSX.

You'd have to mount it longitudinally most likely, just like the 2.5 TL / Vigor

I know it CAN/HAS been done transversly, Volvo and Audi..

Ideally, I'd like to see an inline-5 and RWD on Acura's next iteration of the TSX



Oh and I'm linking this to the 1st gen TL forum

I'm pretty sure the TL came out in 2002. No way it can be a 97.

Are you always 100% correct?
No apparently not just look at this thread you created.

The G25 motor is actually quite fun. It reminds me of a K24... with a proper exhaust setup and VTEC it would sound better too.

If you guys ever have the opportunity, drive a Vigor with a manual transmission, FUN car.
