    Raced A Turbo Civic Just Now!

    Just got home from work, and I raced a 96-up turbo Civic. We started at about 70mph on the highway. I let him start first so I knew he was going then punched it. I instantly pulled 2 carlengths before he immediately gave up on me. I think it must have been a Turbo EX which is a single cam motor for those who don't know. They normally run in the 14's-15's depending on tuning and level of boost. Fun race though.

    70mph roll on? why start so high up there? if you must do a rolling start, do one from like 10-15mph or 30-35mph. anyhow, good run.

    turbo civics with stock motors are usually still slow...when they start swapping b-series motors is when they get wicked...cheezefrog on the jdmcivic website has over 400 whp on a ls motor...he's the one that raced the viper on racingflix.com
    2004 R32: 220 whp

    For Sale: 2003 wrx

    Was it silver, lowered and sticker-less? That's funny, I think it might be my friend's car from work. We both just got off work a little while ago and he was driving up through Phoenix. Wonder if it was him? He's got a GReddy setup in an EX Civic - but it has an automatic! He ran a 15.9 best 1/4 mile, I believe. His car dynoed 128whp, if I remember correctly. He runs 6psi normally and 9 (?) at the track. It's a cool car, but the auto tranny and low boost are what's holding it back.

    Not to mention the '92 Accord 2-door around here with an H22, fully built, bottom end redone, etc. running 11psi...

    325whp on just boost/91 octane and 385whp with a little nitrous!

    My friend's brother just bought it and I'm waiting to take a ride. It's a friggin' beast.

    It wasn't your friend, but your friend did buy an exhaust from me last night for his friend. The Civic I raced was Dark Green. And to the person who asked why we didn't race from 10-15mph, it's because we were on a highway and we would have been killed! I figure you just didn't see the highway part on my original post. And yes I know what kinds of hondas and honda motors are fast. Those cars, and now the WRX are the cars I know TONS about. Thanks for the replies.
