New guy searching for wife a MDX over a CRV

My name is Steven and my wife and I are looking to upgrade her 2002 Honda CRV. It is however an auto slushbox, so Honda put this fantastic K series engine which is possibly one of the greatest motors ever made joined to the terrible auto-slushbox. As many import enthusiasts have built themselves, but consider a close ratio 6 speed manual transmission, with a torquey 2.4 or 2.6 liter bottom end, direct injected, high compression and geared accordingly so it would be responsive off boost. Then this surge of boost would come in. 280-330hp I don't think would be a problem. Then you could have a motor that could grow and mature. Join 2 or tbem and have an efficient 4.8 or 5.2 V8 Ridgeline, and build a 5.2 TTV8 Sport Truck that made almost 600hp.and could use the 9 speed from the MDX. Then a Hybrid version that could easily make 750-850 and with the suspension chassis development brakes wheels and tires and the leaps and bounds in hybrid technology IMO Honda missed something. Imagine 2 turbocharged K24 with K20 heads mounted under a Ridgeline bed driven by a 9 speed transmission. Under the hood there is a couple electric motors that torque vector and the electric motor on the 2.4 are spun up to mask the torque fill. Plus since there is no torque lag the turbo can be much bigger. So no only do you have the immediate electric motor driving thr front wheels but the electric motor spinning the variable vein turbo closing to make it behave much much smaller. Then as the electric motor begins to spin, the veins open behaving like a much bigger turbo on a 2 2.4 bottom ends capable of 7300 when mass produced on the other hand 2 2.0 cylinder heads that properly prepares could see 10k. I don't know about you but a 4.0-4.8 32 valve twin variable turbo making somewhere around 600hp sounds awesome as shit. As far as Me, personally I am a GM LS guy. But I appreciate anything with round rubber tires. I have a 2wd Trailblazer SS with a 416 stroker motor that has gone an 11.8 in the 1/4 without a clean run from start to finish. I'm building that for my 14 YO which will be heavily detuned for her safety. I am also building a 2000 Silverado with either a twin turbo 5.3 or TT 390 that should take aroumd 6400 but because the turbos all it's power will be in the 6200-6300 range. It will be rebuilt, engineered, and with every possible safety built in. Instead of having a red line at 7200 for the Trailblazer it would be 3k. The truck would build 0 boost and shift at 3k also.

Welcome to the forums.

Since this is a topic/technical issue which will require replies and discussion, this thread has been moved from the New Member Introductions forum to the model specific forum.

At first I read it as trading in the wife. But you rambled on so much I lost interest and got confused. So the answer to your car question is to trade in the wife and move to Costa Rica. You will appreciate it.

Forget the MDX, go with a 2019 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring model instead.
