I think it would make sense for AHM to drop the K23T into the ILX, call it the Type S ( I prefer GS-R) and offer it with MT6 and LSD. I figure, I'd even take the plunge and live with a turbo so long as I could get my hands on 260 bhp on a FWD/MT6/LSD small ride... THAT would be the true spirit of the GSR.
That would differentiate it from the Civic Si and bring back a very well known -and loved- brand.
Meanwhile, the K24 can go with both the MT6/LSD and then a nice AT6SS... I dare say that the AT'd K24 will sell like pancakes at IHOP on a saturday morning... It would be the newer, faster, lighter TSX.
