You should take him without much problem. I ended up buying a new '94 CIVIC EX 5spd back in '94, rather than the left-over '93 MX-3, because the Civic EX (127HP) was just as fast as the MX-3 (130HP), and it was about $1,000 cheaper. Back around '96 I ended up racing an MX-3 in my Civic EX going down the freeway and kept up with him just fine.
