The third-generation Acura TL is, NSX aside, probably the best looking Acura ever made. They really nailed the formula with that car. It has the right proportions, was built well, and offered solid performance for the time. But this one is different. Packing a fully built, Rotrex supercharged V6 up front, a manual transmission, and suspension and brakes to back it up, this is probably one of if not the fastest street driven Acura TL in the world.

      Until you own or drive one of these cars, you prob will never understand how well these cars rotate for their size and weight even with stock suspension.

      a build like that and you leave the battery in the stock location?!
      dude.. not even a Li Ion to save weight?
      not only does the battery take up all that space, it just hangs over that driver tire..
      best thing i ever did to my TL-S 6spd was relocate the battery right behind the rear seats.. you lose nothing as the seats are fixed and dont fold down anyways.
      you gut the interior and leave the battery?!
      just a big ugly square taking up space in the engine bay!

      i doubt anybody will ever see this comment but could it have been breaking up due to oil issues like too many cornerning g's maybe needs a dry sump?

      Yes, the 04-06 have the 3.2 6 speed manual, and they upgraded that to be the 3.5L Type-s for 07-08. 09-2013 have 6 speed manuals too. Not exactly sure about earlier generation specs, but the earlier TLs came in manual too

      It looks like that back came out. Oversteer is common on our cars specifically when a beefier rear sway bar is added

      It's hard to choose an Acura TL......the older gen looks gorgeous but it's underpowered and outdated, the next gen ones are AWD and more powerful and more modern but hella ugly, the TLX has a button transmission which personally makes me cringe so.......yeah, I own a 2006 Acura TL btw...looking into upgrading to a 2008 Acura TL type S

      And most of this power is wasted and never used , way too much power for front wheel drive , stupid investment imo and many others, would have been better of doing this on the SH TL and youโ€™d have a 3.5 liter also and be able to use all the power

      Nice video. I used to own a Supercharged 2004 TL in WDP color. I had a Eaton S/C and only dyno'd at 313whp. So I can only imagine how fast that 450whp was on the track.
