This is a discussion on 08 civic si w/bolts on vs 04 stage 2 within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Originally Posted by pzr2874 The new SI's have about ~185whp... decent.... NO TORQUE. 2.5 stg 2 ..... the SI doesn't ...
they say the si puts down 170-180 at the wheels. I traded my 07 si in for my sti. The si was fun but not fast at all. Any type of mod to a wrx and the si is done. It's a 15 second car stock! SLOW!
the civic with simple bolt ons and simple tune isnt going to stand a chance against the wrx....even stock
How Fast Can You Afford To Go?
i'd say there's no chance...if stage two could snatch a evo8..a bolt on k20 is no prob..swapped..ehhh..different story.
Please use appropiate language when you describe a car.

lol enough Honda talk civics are teh slow Civic<WRX
02PSMWRX VF39'd STI Killer
Roll or dig The Rex wins.
2011 SWP 5 door WRX LIMITED
Nameless axleback, Cobb AP, Viper 5901
as an owner of an '08 Si coupe (fg2), i can tell you that from a dig the rex will toast the Si. from a roll might be pretty close, i've honestly never raced a WRX (not that i condone racing). realistically, an Si with I/H/E and a reflash should put down around 210-220hp.
....but! awd is great!!
