    2013 Acura ILX - A Gearbox Fit for a Demi-God



    In the early '90s, we had a long-term 1991 Acura Integra GS two-door. A couple of criticisms, like uncomfortable seats and lack of interior space, kept the staff from falling in love with the car, but there was unanimous adoration for two things: the engine and drivetrain. "The Integra really came alive on deserted Huron River Drive, and I made it home in nine minutes," said now deputy editor, then editorial assistant, Joe DeMatio. "It usually takes fifteen."

    This is a great article. Especially for someone that wants to be sure the ILX just doesn't look sporty and fast but also moves like it too, effortlessly.

    I'd say like most 6-speed K motor combos.. it's not exactly that it's fast.. it's that it is such a thrill to drive. The K24 and 6-Speed flow so well together.. Definitely a dream pairing. Most people prefer the old K20 but I have to say having torque throughout the entire band and a smooth power delivery is so much better.
