amen and booyah from me w/ 93 civic Si 5 spd
VTEC almost every drive
I do not know about 5-6K, mine feels like i can engage around 4-4.5 k under
need it especially on highway here, everyone thinks they are racing
somewhere and their goal in life is not to let you get in front of them,
which is fine (just slip behind right) except there is another guy right
behind that one with the same notion and the on-rampers get same treatment ?
where VTEC is handy
i just wish i had that 1.6 DOHC 160hp monster in the civic, watch the jaws
drop on those un-suspecting passer-bys
well relatively speaking 160 is a monster, i am about 120 hp w/vtec and i
find it fun to drive so 160 hp ought to give quite a nice kick in the pants
giving more fun (i would hope)
160hp RSX slow ? i think it is more relativity at work there, whats the
comparison 220/240/260 hp
now that would be monster in a civic
Get the new 2006 Civic Si; 197hp from the factory. "It'll reverse your
thinking." ;-) I personally would love to have one.
P.S. Imagine what that engine would do with a cold-air intake,
hi-performance exhaust system, new cam gear, turbo, etc. ;-)
Except that the 06 Civic SI has LSD. The 2006 Civic SI is faster than
If you want to know how it would do with those mods, go to
clubrsx.com. Some guys are with the Cybernation Turbo and running
12's. A CAI/RH/Exhaust/Hondata should easily get it in the high 13's.
I have TSX (2.4 DOHC i-VTEC) and it IS a rather "slow" car **BUT** can be
driven fast !
You just gotta rev the hell out of it and yes, that engine begs for it.
Last car was good-ol' M/T Legend...VTEC all teh time, now the A/T TSX I
got goes into VTEC @ 6K
So unless I use the sportshift I've never been able to hit VTEC :(
