Hey guys, i just had the experience of my life, i was in a TURBO'd (T3/4 hybrid) Honda SiR (the COUPE, not that ugly ass hatchback that looks like a 2 dr. minivan) and lemme tell ya, this thing HAULS ASS!!! Its a real sexy car, no rice shitt on it, everything OE, the front lip, rear lip, has the JDM headlights, its a BEAUTIFUL CAR, and when i heard that turbo spooling, i almost DIED!!!
Anyways, just wanted to share, i know theres a lotta hatred toward honda's and ricers, so i thought i'd try to shed some light!
:cool:

these are the sick hondas...not the ones ppl thought i liked, and i got flamed for..

hondas can be modded VERY nicely..and have nice power potential for their size...

i gotta see this sir..

Ya man, i'll try to get him to send some pics, its GOOD, cause it looks like a sleeper and not a ricer!
Its just plain, everything on it is OEM, pretty much, and it just looks MEAN!
dropped pretty damn low!
And its a REAL Sir too, not just an engine swap!!

jon seriously explain this to me.....how does a honda run 12s with 200hp, 130 lbs tq and nitrous (im assuming no more than 100 shot??? this makes no sense to me are these cars that light is that all it is??
a guy i work with has a 91 accord and right now the motor is being swaped for a jap spec h22, its costing him something like 7gs, i laughed at him whats he gonna run 15s?????????

ya i'll post pics as soon as i can!!
It looks SOOO mean cause like i said about a hundered times already, its OEM, nothing TOO MUCH on it, its spoilerless, and it has all the factory skirts on it, and a nice fat intercooler behind that front bumper!!
UNBELIEVEABLE!
And windsor, YES they are just THAT light, ask rob for some EXACT numbers, but his CRX weight in at just over 1000lbs (something like that, or UNDER 1000KG, whichever sounds more realizstic!!)
now THATS impressive and what makes hondas so quick, i mean take a base model CX civic hatch, the cars had NOTHING in them, i mean shit, they didn't even come with PASSENGER SIDE MIRRORS, they saved weight on EVERYTHING pretty much (i doubt they did that in 91 thinking in 10 years the kids are gonna love them for it, but they tried to make the car as CHEAP as possible, and by making it cheap, they saved a LOTTA WEIGHT!!)!
So i honda hitting 12's you wouldn't need a lotta HP in it, its all in the weight, take bikes for example, they run stock 10's but have lil or no power, a honda is sorta on the same principle, drop a B16 (sir, only 160hp, and NO trq.) in a CRX and you could expect to see some times in the high 13's!

so whats the weight of an e30 (2800 lbs i believe) compared to the sir???? rob any idea on weigh

crx's fakin rule ! :)

90-91 crx weigh a lil more cuz of bars in the doors...
***some crx's come with no a/c, which further reduces weight

LOL!!! hes being RIPPED soooooo bad

i get complete JDM H22 for 2500 all legit, to swap it into accord is easy from altech, thats like 1g max with install..boom...3500-4500 max he shoulda paid.

and yes..a civic, with an H22 and nitrous 100shot will hit somewhere in the mid-high 12sec range.

the whole thing in total will cost 10g with coilovers/shocks included...with a 2g paint job *th-up*

ya apparently the old accords came with that motor in japan, so it WAS suppose to me an easy swap.....the monkeys hes having do the swap have been at it for 3 weeks now. now the dumby is savinf up for a turbo, the funny thing is the car has:

1.stock rims
2.big ass spoiler
3.lowered
4.sparco seat (worth more than the car, that are red, but the car is BROWN!!!)
5.h22

can you say RICE?????

Jon@Bimmersport

stock suspension too? he is going to write it off...H22 ****s up handling so much and gives PLENTY of torque steeer..i dont know if it applies to accord but definitly for CRX and civics....stock wheels is like 145 tires?!?!

Putting the h22 engine in, doesn't that offset all the weight balance and basically just used for pure drag racing?

Well ya, but i've heard that they're making suspension setups, made specially for those type of engine swaps!!
So who knows!
Hey app, you still interested in the tail lights?!

NAH MAN!!
hondas are not BAD cars!
I would NEVER buy a honda only cause of the IMAGE you get from driving one, and what F&F has done to them, but other than that, i mean c'mon 20g's for a BRAND new honda isn't all too bad, and they don't look UGLY!!
i mean lets flash back to 1999, if you were on a budget but wanted a new car, would you rather pick a CIVIC or a ASS-NASTY SUNFIRE/CAVALIER?!?! You see what i mean, hondas DO make good cars, and the fact that they're the designers of the car with the MOST HP/L (S2K!) in the world helps em out a bit more!!So lets not make fun of hondas in the sense that they're BAD cars!

spud...u cant say that till u been in one around the track...like comptech's s2k..supercharged, and whippin M3's ass. stock for stock, i thought E36 M3 was better..but apparantly i was told by ppl who have driven both..s2k will give the M3 an ass kicking.

i'd still take M3 no doubt though

first of all the prelude engine is 220 not 200, the civic is a light car, and the enigne is proabaly modded quit a bit.......you do realize that these cars do come with 110 hp at the engine.80-90 at the wheels.....a prelude engine makes a BIG difference
