Project 2010 Acura TSX V6 Good News Earlier this year, Acura tossed me a set of keys for a week-long stint with their brand new TSX V6 sedan. After seven days with the refined brute, I was a fan, and I actually stated in my review that if I ever crossed paths with this model again, there would be a few basic changes that I'd make to improve the already impressive offering. Well, as luck would have it, three short months later I received word that I'd have the opportunity to modify my own TSX this year. Draped in Palladium Metallic, also known as silver, the 2010 V6 is fully loaded, including eighteen-inch wheels, navi, and of course the potent 3.5L power-plant. Long-term loaners, in short, are awesome. They give editors a chance to tinker with a new model, and with any luck, help develop some new parts that will eventually be made available to the public. Because the models are usually very new, aftermarket support isn't exactly booming. I saw this problem with our Project Fit last year, as the '09 model simply didn't have the same level of parts options in comparison to the previous generation. I did find a few companies willing to take a stab at producing new parts, including a carbon fiber front lip, various suspension components, and even pulled a few horsepower out of the micro-machine-sized Fit motor. The production of power.....never enough With the TSX V6, the power and torque is outstanding. The car has no problems grunting its way around traffic with a level of power and finesse that most Honda/Acura offerings simply can't match. Of course, there's always room for improvement. Although I've never seen the inside of the factory V6 exhaust system, I'm assuming it's somewhat convoluted due to its extremely quiet demeanor, even during full throttle sprints. An aftermarket high-flow exhaust and intake system are a must, and although there isn't anything on the market currently, I'm confident there's a company out there willing to break the ice on the V6 model in both the inhale and exhale departments. Down To Earth You'll no doubt notice the very low stance in the photos accompanying this write-up. Just a few days after bringing the car home, it was handed off to a very well known suspension manufacturer that stepped up to the plate to develop a full coilover kit for the V6. The eighteen inch stock wheels are tastefully sculpted and really compliment the stout lines of the second generation TSX. However, something an inch taller, slightly wider, and preferably coated in black would make a dramatic difference in the aggressive demeanor of the project car.The eighteen inch stock wheels are tastefully sculpted and really compliment the stout lin Extremely quiet, the factory exhaust is most likely very restrictive.
