Default What to call a Supercharged 2.5RS?

Can't call it a RS-T, because it isn't turbocharged. RS-S looks/sounds dumb. I'm thinking 2.5RS Type S. What do you guys think?

I like 2.5 RSK

Likely I'll not show any type of badge that shows what lies beneath the hood.

I always liked the term, "boosted RS," which is ambiguous enough to include both supercharged and turbocharged systems. Of course, technically a turbocharger is a specific type of supercharger system, but we've come to identify it as its own catagory, separate and distinct from supercharging...

I still like "Boosted RS"

Default wait wait.

i just realized that RSC is RScharged. hmm. wut the hell does "RS" stand for anyway? RSC is fine. it sounds funny at the same time tho, like a name for a soda or something. i say screw the "rs" and call it "2.5 SC" unless RS means something special

how about just 2.5RS Supercharged.

look at the newer years of buicks. i dont know much about them but my uncle has a park avenue i think and its supercharged. it has a nice little "Supercharged" emblem that looks like it would fit perfectly under the IMPREZA part of our badge.

I think that means Rally Sport.

I did what Andrew said:

A lil chrome "SUPERCHARGED" vinyl sticker.

But if I had to choose something for the side emblems, I'd go with 2.5 RSsc

How about de-badge, de-wing add an L and when you blow the honda with 25 HKS stickers into the weeds, just tell him that it's a completely stock 1.8L and your e-brake is stuck on.

I like the 2.5 RSK

It's like the Mercedes "Kompressor" and it's a fun word to say.

How about RS-P (RS parasitic)? haha. j/k

You can always get the small "Supercharged" emblem off the late model Buick Regals. I think this would fit under the 2.5RS emblem.
