Hey there, I loved the RSX. Quality car with a great and powerful engine (K20A). I also loved the buttery smooth 6-speed tranny bolted to it. However, the one thing that was not-so good about the car: it was HEAVY. I believe the DC5 chassis weighed in at nearly 3800 lbs, or so (could be wrong).

As Victor stated, the wiring and chassis modifications would surely be intense. Even if they could all be pulled off, the D15Z1 engine does not have enough power/torque to get that monster chassis around town, yet alone with any kind of respectable fuel economy.
