We all know that Ford has almost universally spec'd 5w20 for its cars, even the high output supercharged models. What about Honda? Are they spec'ing 5w20 across the board, or do they have some models (like the NSX or S2000) that call for some other grade? If so, what is that grade?

All Honda motorcycles call for 10w40. I know, that's like comparing oranges to tangerines, but I own both and I don't think the difference between the two is all that much.

Last year when I was comparison shopping the Acura TSX (4 cylinder) and TL (V-6) called for 5W-30 while the Honda Accord called for 5W-20. Same engine familys, but the Acura versions are tuned for higher output and premium fuel while the Accord 4 and V-6 motors are slightly detuned versions which call for regular fuel and have lower power outputs.

Lightning/Harley Davidson Ford GT Mustang Cobra Those are the only production "high output" supercharged models AFAIK.
