I beleive all they have said is that the Civic SI will have a 200HP engine.
My best guess is that they are borrowing the engines from the RSX, so the
sedan may have the 160HP engine....but only time will tell I suppose.
I subscribe to Honda Tuning magazine
They state on page 10 of the May 2005 issue the following"
"...the next generation Si will output 200 hp from a K20 powerplant mated
to a six speed manual gearbox and rev to 8000 rpm..."
They are of course speculating based upon on the engine that was in the
concept car which is pictured on the same page of the magazine. You can
see a picture of the concept car at this site:
