    just watch out for the rare h22a/b18c swapped ones...
    ...but you never know how well a Civic will do unless you race it. This guy on here had a sleeper Civic. It looked like a POS, but ran in the 10s. Now tht's crazy fast

    True that. The other day I ran into one. It was a blue SI. As I was passing him, I shifted and my BOV went off. Immediately , he floored it, and I heard this loud turbo spool up followed by a BOV. It caught me by surprise. The guy had to turn down his street, so I didn't get to see how well of a race it would have been. Oh well, if I see him again, it's on

    Last weekend i was at my friends party and his older brother came over with his civic ex. I was like u know wut ever but then i saw an intercooler in the front. So i asked him if i could check it out and he swapped his engine with a integra ls and turboed it. All he said is he runs 12's. He was kinda of a **** tough...cocky as ****.

    Sounds like he has a nice car...too bad the same can't be said about its driver though I don't understand some people.

    There are so few instances of "addicting" in English grammar, that I cant even think of any.

    Ok, yeah flat_four, this time I was being mean, but only a LITTLE mean... that's actually my biggest pet peave in the whole world.

    I read somewhere (a periodical I believe) that the word "addicting" is used incorrectly versus the proper "addictive" moreso that any other misuse in the english language, discounting slang.

    You can rest assured I mean nothing by it, but I will now, and forever, grit my teeth and make it known that the word... is "addictive"

    ROFL, ok sorry... /grammar_nazi off

    But seriously, I mean nothing by it, my intent is never to anger, only to educate, and I'm not trying to say that I'm a genius either, I have my moments just like everone else (maybe more than everyone else, and when I funk up, I expect someone to let me know, seems like common courtesy to me.

    But I do agree with Butterfingers, yes, burning Civics is a ****load of fun, and I do so at my every available opportunity.

    Dude, I do the same thing. My two biggest corrections are saying "I'm nauseous" as opposed to "nauseated," and saying "I did good" as opposed to "well." I think the reason I'm so anal is because I had such a hard time learning English -- Arabic is my first language -- that I feel as though I'm helping my peers by being critical of their speech.
