2006 Acura TSX 6-Speed Manual Transmission


I live in Los Angeles California. As long as I can remember I’ve always loved cars. As a young boy all my toys were everything cars. I was into all sorts of cars whether it’d be sports cars or classics.

How did you get started in the import scene?

I guess my interest in cars became more than just that, it became my passion. I guess my passion in cars lead me into the import scenes. I wanted to share my passion with the community so I started attending car shows and meets, from there I’ve learn so much from the car scene and met a lot of great people.

Why did you choose this car?

This year and model of the Acura to me has the most attractive body lines then you add on the K series motor with the 6 speed manual transmission equals nothing short than perfect. Ive always wanted to build a clean car with nothing but quality Authentic JDM parts. This build is mainly out of my pocket with some support from my family and friends. So I guess this is what I’m most proud of.

What makes your build unique?

When I started to build this TSX first thing I purchased was the Work Meisters S1 then went into picking up some Authentic Mugen front end bumper with sides and rear. After installing the Mugen kit I knew I had to go with an air suspension to not damage and to preserve my Mugen kit.  Then I guess from there everything just fell into place.

Shout Outs

I like to thank my family and of course my wife for putting up with me with long hours in the garage working on this TSX. I like to thank Denis from Prodigy Specs Automotive for making sure everything on this car is on point. I like to thank Josh and Phillip from Boden Autohaus for the amazing trunk set up.
