I know, just trying to relate something that is mostly unrelated. There aren't many TSXs out there, so any topic discussing anything about it has my interest. It's also me reiterating my frustration with the gearing yet again. 6th is useless on the track from a "sportiness" perspective, and nearly useless as a cruising gear since it revs so high. Acura could have left 1-5 for sportiness, and 6th useful for fuel economy, but they didn't. The automatic has a better fuel economy rating due to the better cruising gearing. I get the best fuel economy in stop and go traffic compared to highway cruising.

I'm very impressed with what you've done, and just wish it was "perfect" considering your efforts.
