I am new to this board....so Im going to post my most memorable kill. This Civic Si with the ususal rice (over sized exhaust, v-tec stickers everywhere, etc etc) thought he could take me. Just to show him, I let him take off from infront of me from a dead stop. I punched it like 2 seconds after he did, and over took him, kept on going, until i was at least 10 car lengths ahead of him. Why do they even try, even after we can kill even after starting BEHIND them?

Good kill wecome to the kill section. The Honda drivers are thinking that help from the Rice Gods and Type R stickers can over come any thing. The fools will never learn. But it is great fun handing them their ass`s all the time and the open month looks on their faces. When the Family 4 door passes them.

What color was this Civic SI? I think the only real Si's are what they call electric blue which is like a purple color. The other Si's and stupid Type R stickers and badges are bullshit. I like honda alot, but I am the first one to admit the false badging and bullshit some of those people do to "rice" them out. I wouldnt mind some decent mods, but I hate that fart loud noise that comes out of the exhaust. Hondas are great cars , but enjoy that natural nice honda. But. who cant enjoy 40 mpg. I love my biotches 98 civic about 36 mpg auto.

It was a silver...looked like a 99 or so. SI's come in all sorts of colors, the SI-R's have less colors like that electric blue you are talking of. Honda's are great cars, it is just some of them were never meant to be fast unless you poured a lot of cash into them, not just v-tech and type-r stickers.

I blew past two of them in my Intaked 2.7L, the first one was nothin' the second was an SI all suped up and he was tryin' really hard to not let me pass him, I even let off the gas then punched it and roared right past him where the onramp merged to get on the freeway. So far they've been too easy even for my 2.7L.

I think a 3.3L if tuned up good and w/a K&N filter and air restrictor removed could have or should have pretty good results vs. a Civic.

Later guys

I can take all the civics I have raced thus far exept the new EX's. I don't know the specs on an Si nor have I raced one.

There is a kid down the road with an old (90-92) civic. He has it all riced out,Ground effects,5" pipe,20" high wing,and a pearl paint job that is multi-color and cost 5 times more than the car. This thing sounds like a ricer car. I bet he is lucky to get 115 HP from the Engine. Last summer I was going for a walk and saw a NOS kit he was installling. I just had to look, this ricer has over 300,000KM on original engine. I said to him that NOS is going to kill that old engine. He said it was cheaper than buying a vtec engine. I bet with the NOS he might make 165HP. I saw him 2 weeks ago and asked if he tried the NOS. He said 4 50 shot tanks so far. I would love to see if this thing has any guts but it very amazing that a 300,000KM can take NOS. Interesting right accross the street is a guy with a new R/T. I can't wait to see if the civic has even tried the R/T.

you guys with the 3.3 those arent real SIs your beating all the time. They must have fake badges. SIs put out 160 hp w/ vtec
and correct me if im wrong but the first gen 3.3 has 160 hp as well. But i hope u keep killing those fakes they deserve to have their ass beat for false badging

in canada, where i live, the civic si's carry a 126hp v-tec engine ('96-'00), and in like 99 and 00 when the si-r was introduced, those si-r's used the 160hp version of this 1.6 v-tec.

He "showed" you the VTEC? How the hell did he do that? He would have had to tear apart the engine to show you the cam shaft. Now, if you are meaning the valve cover, be wary there as well. I frequent a couple Honda boards and I know that some of them put the valve cover that has the nifty VTEC decals on it.

Sad to say it guys, but a true Si or SiR with a competant driver is going to walk all over a 3.3L, and perhaps even the 3.5Ls. Si's are mid 7s to extremly high 6s in the 0-60 romp, with said competant driver.

1999 and up Honda Civic Si

1.6L DOHC VTEC I4

My sister's boyfriend has a 1997 Honda Civic Si, automatic, and claims it is slower than his 2.8L 1989 Celeberty.....there is no way any stock SI can take my intrepid, even the 5 speed...I have raced many legit SI's. I am not sure about the US, but in Canada, the SI never came with a 160 hp engine...only 126hp v-tec engine. The SI-R was a different story, that came with the 160hp engine and the 5 speed, and most likely that would take my Intrepid, with the right driver.

you are all dumb.....even a piece of **** civic ex would smoke you! intrepids are slow. i like the car. looks cool as all can be, but it is not a race car. i dont have a civic, and i dont particularily like them, but i hate people that pretend to know what they are talking about.

not ONE of you dorks has ever beat an american civic si, or a canadian civic siR. they have a 1.6 liter, 160 horsepower engine. they run a 15.7 quarter mile stock. lemme see the time slips. NONE of you have an intrepid that runs 15's. NONE. even an ex will run a consistent 16.0 quarter mile. and the si's did not come with an auto either. quit talking smack, cause you have no idea what you are talking about. sorry.

whyme...who did u have to blow to get internet access? i never said i beat an SI-R...they would probably beat an intrepid w/ the 3.5...though I still have my doubt's. as far are your claim for the si's not coming with an auto, it is flawwed. in canada at least, we have si's with the auto. just curious, what kind of car you drive, as you must have been able to beat many intrepid to say that they are ALL slow?
