The other day I was cruisin along when I got up next to this Civic SI, and once I knew thats what it was I really wanted to race him. So, I looked over and said, "You wanna give it a go?" He looked at me with his friend in the car and said to me, "HAHAHA...Do you know what kind of car this is, its an SI and it has CAI, header, cat-back, and vtec controller pumpin out 185 or so HP!" I told him that I knew about SIs but I still wanted to race him anyway to see how I would do... So we start revving, and when the light goes I drop it from about 6k and immediately take him by about 1 car off the line. He manages to pull back about 1/2 a car by 65mph or so, and the we slow down. The minute he gets next to me he keeps sayin I have a turbo. I am like WTF?? turbo?? hahahaa...and he flipped me off and jetted off some street. Guess SI drivers cant live with defeat?

He never really hit the bread and butter of the VTEC range. he was just starting to get there. If you stopped at 70 he was an uneducated driver about his car. Call me crazy but 185HP for I/H/E is a bit hight right? Still a good kill, but watch out for them from rolling starts.

You can launch from any RPM if you feather the clutch enough

I'm assuming the dude meant 185hp at the crank. Which still is a bit high. The Si has 160hp at the crank + I/H/E = maybe another 15hp = 175hp. I doubt anymore than that though.

Hey maxximtl I wasnt there, I was at a test and tune a week or so ago. Is that what your talkin about? We should meet up sometime, dont get to see many ppl with same car as me.

And, yeah...I dont think the guy was a good driver, he was just trying to be a showoff. I think he could have taken me easily if he was a good driver.
