Hey
My friend has a '96 Honda Civic EX (with VTEC). He has dc headers, greddy exhaust, and an aem cold air. I have an mx6 4 cylinder with cold air intake, underdrive pulley, headers, and exhaust. Who do you think will win. I wasn't even thinking about this until i saw him check his email last night. He belongs to a Superhonda message board. In his inbox was a reply to a post about "Which is faster..." (and then I saw it) "96 civic ex or 4 cyl MX6". I acted like I didn't see it and he closed the window real quick. I didn't say anything - but now I know he's scheming. Needless to say, it's on. I think I can beat him - but what do you guys think?

I don't know. I guess you don't have turbo (do you have a 1st or 2nd Gen--people always leave that out).

Why don't you 2 discuss it if you are friends? Then race.

I don't know anything about the non-turbo mx6's, but, I do know about those civics. They're not very quick really. I was kind of surprised, even with a bunch of bolt on's, they're just slighty quicker slow cars.
I say go for it. If you know how to drive, you should at least give him a good run for his money.

Do you have a 5spd and does he have a 5spd? Is his motor the DOHC Vtec( i would think so since you say headers). I guess it is the motor out a Civic 99-00 model right? with like 160hp or so and not that much ft/lb.

hav eyou driven in his car and has he driven in yours? You can tell alot about car by doing this(DUH that is to myself not you, haha) anyway. I dont know about this one but most v6s mx6 can take those Vtec, i dont read to much on the 4banger. sorry.

another thing is, does he race his car at a track or do you race yours at a track, if so what are the numbers?

i didnot help at all, sorry bud!

He has the vtec sohc 1.8 Liter. I meant to say header. Sorry. I rode in it yesterday - it seemed pretty quick. It is also lowered - this might help him on the launch. I don't know. We'll see what happens. It's only a matter of time before we race.

it's gonna be close, man... you and i seem to have similar mods. every time i have raced a vtec, i have lost, although not by much in some cases. if you are going to race him, MAKE SURE you get a good launch... i can stay ahead of a vtec for a good while if i get a nice launch. but in pretty much every case, i get passed around when i'm shifting into third gear (60 mph)... well, race him and let us know what happens!

the 94+ EXs have a SOHC Vtec pushing somewhere around 124 HP. even if it had a DOHC, it still only has one bank of cylinders, therefore only using 1 header.

you should kill him pretty badly...if you know how to drive.
