Kev never said stock though.
Maybe from 0-100 because the civic is lighter. but after that...where real v8s play no chance. i know the m62tub engine quite well. 100plus its a torque monster and thts what counts at those speeds. Kev was vague he just mentions civic. and IMO a civic is created for the sole purpose of taking its passenger from point a to point b efficiently and in a reliable way. Thats it. Real joy of driving no thanks not for me atleast.
I just saw its stats. 197 horses at redline and 139 torque. LOL cmon that thing will die against a 540.
kant believe i have to defend a "BMW 540" against a civic se or wutever for comparison lol. i propose a new name maxcivic.com
