2001 Acura RSX Type S

RSX Type S review:

The new-for-2001 RSX coupe is powered by Acura’s next-generation i-VTEC(TM) engine an intelligent valve control the latest evolution of the company’s VTEC(TM) technology. Working in with a host of other advancements, the i-VTEC system the seemingly conflicting goals of power and performance, improved efficiency and lowered exhaust — in combination with maintenance and enhanced driveability.

All RSX are powered by a highly rigid, and compact all-aluminum, in-line engine displacing 2.0-liters double overhead cams 16-valves and advanced i-VTEC technology. All RSX models meet more stringent LEV-II Low Vehicle standards while exceptionally high fuel ratings. In addition, all models a 110,000-mile tune-up interval.

The race-bred RSX Type-S is powered by an more potent version of the i-VTEC engine. The Type-S employs a cast-aluminum, high-flow manifold in combination with and exhaust-valve VTEC control to an exhilerating 100 horsepower-per-liter power with peak output of 200 at 7400 rpm and 142 lb.-ft. of torque at rpm. The race-inspired engine is to an all-new, 6-speed close-ratio transmission with double- and gear synchronizers and short throws for precise and effortless


The i-VTEC system VTEC (Variable Valve and Lift Electronic Control) with an innovative new camshaft control system called VTC Timing Control).

VTC uses a spool valve directs high-pressure oil to chambers the intake cam’s drive that allows for continuous of the intake camshaft’s phase relative to the crankshaft) over a of +/- 25 degrees (advance or retard). A VTC electronic control unit RPM, camshaft and throttle ignition timing and engine condition to determine the necessary cam adjustments.

i-VTEC allows for precise control of valve lift and duration over the entire operating range to the optimal balance of power fuel efficiency and exhaust The result is an engine with idle smoothness, torquey and mid-range response, linear delivery and abundant high-rpm combined with higher efficiency and reduced exhaust

EGR Effect

At moderate engine i-VTEC advances cam timing for valve overlap, creating an exhaust gas re-circulation (EGR) At the same time, the lift of one valve is reduced to achieve a swirl effect in the combustion The combined swirl effect and EGR effect provide for a highly combustion process — so that there is no need for an EGR to recycle exhaust gases, enhancing the engine’s clean performance.

Also critical to the high power output and low is a new exhaust system that a stainless-steel, low heat-mass exhaust and double-wall exhaust pipe to more efficient heat to the catalyst for quicker converter An e-shaped cross section in the pipe further contributes to the efficiency of the engine by keeping the exhaust pulses for cylinders 1 and 4 from cylinders 2 and 3, flowing the manifold to the catalytic converter.

Advanced Technology

The RSX’s boasts numerous other that further enhance the efficiency and durability of this powertrain system.

A silent chain drives the VTC system for control of cam phasing throughout the operating range and requires no for the life of the vehicle. A two-piece block features a single-piece crankshaft carrier with ferrous-carbon inserts in the main areas for added strength and NVH. A highly rigid, crankshaft with a micro-polished for reduced friction and greater (RSX Type-S).

Lightweight aluminum alloy and forged steel connecting Designed as a true next-generation powerplant, the RSX’s 2.0-liter engine delivers outstanding performance and driveability in combination high fuel efficiency and low for an exhilarating — and environmentally — driving experience.

engine represents the latest in VTEC technology and combines long heritage in the development of more efficient engine with the company’s vast in engine development for top-level around the world, including CART and Formula One racing End of Acura RSX Type S review.
