Hey, I'm older (30's) and there is a kid (25ish) that lives up the street that bought a used 2002 Civic Si hatchback.
He was telling me that he can beat his friend's RX-7 gen III. I have a boring looking wagon (Vishnu 0 and run 15 lbs boost).
A few days ago comming home, he was wating for me at the top of the street - he reved and I just took off, I could hear his turbo kick in but he was so far behind me I never saw him.
He has now met me at the top of the street to our homes at least 4 or 5 times, he is not even close. He is running 5-7lbs boost (all he can run according to his tuner without strenghtening the internals).
I have not been dynoed yet, but I probably have 220-240 whp (vishnu 0).
He claims to have 250 whp at peak boost - is this possible?
Q: Are all Civics this slow, even with boost? Can Civics only boost 5-7 lbs? Are all Civic owners this obsessed?
I have a friend with a gen III RX-7 but it is heavily modded - REALLY fast on the track - but not a good 1/4 mile machine.
