yes you could, but there is a down side to that it will ping in really heavy load or driving the car hard because of the tremedusly high compression that's why Honda tells you to use 91 its best for the engine

Answeryes when i bought my rsx from Honda (used) they filled it with 87 octane but ever since ive been using 91 again. Answer

The engine control system uses a knock sensor to control ignition timing. Low octane fuel results in pretty severe ignition retard, mine would not rev over 4000rpm on regular fuel, no knocking or pinging was evident, but neither was the normal performance this engine delivers. Compression ratio is 11:1 and high miles and carbon build up may increase this further.

The Acura RSX Type X was first manufactured in 2002. The car was only manufactured for a few years as it did not sell very well. In fact Acura stopped manufacturing this model in 2006. The company has no intentions of bringing this model back anytime soon.

Sure, as long as it has had regular maintenance during the 80K.

3000 miles if using regular oil, 6000 if using synthetic. I use synthetic for my RSX-S, but regular would do for a base model.

It means it's time to change the oil.

Base model has 160 hp and type s rsx has 200 hp.

Yes, RSX Type S models only came with a 6 speed manual transmission.

You are going to want to get a full synthetic blend for your 2006 Acura RSX. They take a better oil in order to make the car last longer than a car that takes regular oil.

Base coupe is a sports car but its not as fast. The RSX Type-S is a sports car and its way faster than the base coupe.
