i have an 04 svtf and
i raced my friends 05 rsx type s with cai.
and we raced from 40-45 roll and i was in second gear.( when i hit 6k rpm my car just stop oulling almost like the clutch was slipping, cause a few seconds after that it smelt really bad)
and he killed me like pulled really quick from me.

then we did it from20-25 and i was in 1st gear and he pulled hard again.

like i mean pulled.

what mods could i do to increase my power? (besides cai and exhaust)

if ur wanting to stay NA, you can get an ORP, and a tune. and if youre good at custom work, port and polish ur head. other than that, u really can't do anything.

ORP=Off road pipe, it replaces your cat with a metal pipe.

IMO you will NEVER beat an RSX type S staying NA, even with all the bolt-ons he would probably still take you stock.

I say this not trying to be a jerk but to be honest with you

If your serious about the straightline, keep the Focus, put the money for bolt-ons toward a beater Fox body, add a grand, and wipe the RSX and a lot of other cars easily.

If you don't want to buy another car than buy boost, but get ready to spend around 7K when all said and done. You'll beat RSXs but still get slaughtered by DSMs and SRT4s.

Stick to the curves and you'll be fine though[thumb] the straights are just not where this car is good at at all.
