while in grad school i started researching autos to buy after i graduated. i was looking at the Infiniti G35, Merc C230, Lincoln LS, and Acura TL. i really wanted MT, which eliminated LS. I drove the rest and felt the other three were basically the same car. what got me was the body style of the TL. when I drove the TL, I also drove the TSX. granted the power of the TL was impressive. Yet when i drove the TSX the size, style, gas MPG, ammenities for the price. I was sold. so I bought an '04 TSX carbon graphite pearl.
I love it. it handles wonderfully and has plenty of get up and go.
what i am looking for is after market extras for increased horse power. i was told that there are computer chips to add 20-30 additional horse power. does anyone have any helop for me. i dont want to spend the national debt but will spend some coin.
thanks ben from albuquerque.

No chips. There is an ECU reflash available from Hondata. Do a search for their web page. This upgrade is well worth the money, especially for the 6 MT TSX.
Additional available mods include cold air intakes, headers, rear sway bars, suspension and cat back exhausts. There is also an available supercharger from Comptech, but that runs in the $3K range.
Good luck and congrats on the TSX. It's a great car.

Giving this a bump, I am a bit late to this. My TSX is a 2005 6MT with Nav, SSM with Ebony interior. I got it in May 2006 as a CPO car with 9,300 miles on it. As I write, the car has 39,400 miles. I have enhanced this sweet ride with tinted windows, Yokohama S-Drive tires, and the all wonderful, best bang for your buck Hondata Reflash.
My TSX has been the best car I have had yet. It has proved to be fun to drive yet comfortable in whatever I have throw at it: city traffic, 1800 mile road trip, twisties, etc. The reflash has given me 210 HP and the potential for 30 mpg on the highway. In my mixed driving, I typically get 22-24 mpg. The 6 speed shifts with smoothness and precision. On top of this all, I have not had a single problem.
On the inside, the seats are very comfortable, and the controls are ergonomic perfection. The touch screen nav works great, although I do need to get a newer data DVD for it.
My few niggles for the car include the seat heaters could be better and their is a bit of road noise on the highway, even when I had the stock tires.
If you are in the market for a TSX, I have no reservations saying get one. If you want to enjoy Hondata, be sure you get 2004-2006, and for God sakes get the manual.

Glad to read you love your tsx as much as I do mine-a 2006 6MT with nav, MR with ebony interior. I bought mine new on 11/17/06. It now has 42,560 miles. It is stock and still has the original tires. Last May we took it on a 6,177 mile road trip covering 20 states. We are doing another road trip starting May 7th. NC to CA via the southern states. The last time I took my car to the dealer for service they informed me that my heated seats would probably stop working. They are replacing the wiring when I bring it in next week. Living in NC I never used that feature. I agree GET MANUAL TRANSMISSION!!!!!!!!
