i cant wait.
must not realize acura only exists in north america, no matter what it's still a
honduh.

no point, really. i know acuras have always been and always will be honda. that was pretty much what i stated in the quote you quoted.

i cant stand when people call them "honduhs." it just irks me like you wouldnt believe. i own both and love both, but subaru has a LONG way to go compared to honda.

true, if honda offered an AWD car in the price range of a wrx or sti, i would possibly consider switching. the RL is freaking sweet but out of my price range SH-AWD FTW!! haha. one of my old neighbors was an acura salesman and acura's are all his friends and familly drove, lol. his personal cars were a TSX and an RSX-S. h

They're going to have to. If they found a way to get the TL AWD, that would be a big hit. Mazda already announced their 2.5l turbo charged awd version of the Mazda 6. With the addition of turbo Legacy's this year and the new IS Lexus with AWD, Acura will be left behind. They obviously know this because their including AWD on more and more vehicles. If enough mfg's get on this wagon, who knows what will happen to Audi! They're claim to fame is going to be the norm very soon.

Now if only they could make the rear main seal hold oil, and intermediate shaft seal not leak. Oh and the cam covers. And coolant bottles not crack. And the turbo clutch slave not fail internally. And did I mention intermediate shaft failures or slipped cylinder liners. Also did you know that the high powered models(turbo, gt2, gt3) use a 964 case from the early 90s that is basically a air cooled block with water cooled heads(very strong engine). While the "cheap" cars engines get a open block fully water cooled design with a "integrated" dry sump instead of a real one. These engines fail often.
Nothing is perfect. Just remember to get that inspiration from the expensive models.

So engineers turned to high-temperature-resistant aerospace metals for the turbocharger, used the most advanced calculation methods in structural mechanics and flow dynamics, spent 20,000 hours testing on a dynamometer and ran almost three-quarters of a million miles on the road—all to ensure the turbocharger could deliver what they demanded from it.

BTW, Saab just met your mark here with the concept car the Aero X: http://www.trollhattansaab.net/archives/aerox/

(also, FYI, that old variable compression engine went as high as 14, but not under boost)

yeah, my friends dads chevy dually has one, but those are mechanical, this **** is electronic!

CR of 12 and 17 psi of boost. How do they do that?
I'm going to guess great quench design, great ignitoin and low restriction into the engine...
or direct injection

and those stats sound like the GT2...but it's still only 9.4:1
