well i had just gotten off work and turned onto the main road, theres a car up ahead, and one coming up from behind quickly...he catches me, and shifts, i hear his BOV, im like ok, sweet, but i had just started my car and thus vtec woudnt work, so i just criused, then the car ahead had slowed down, turned out to be a 93 stang GT, who wanted to race so there i sat with my car no properly warmed up, and two willing participants...im like ugh...so we continue to cruise, the stang takes off..didnt really impress me...finally get to an open stretch my car is warm now...and i downshift and take off....he wasnt ready so he fell quite a bit back...we get even again and i wait for him to hit it...as he hits it, i then downshift, he had gotten about a half a car on me, thus his rear wheel was at me front, rip the end of second, shift to third, he creeps, i creep back, hit fourth stayed there and he let off, i was pretty impressed, he didnt really pull anything, but he had that 1/2 car so technically he won, we stopped an talked, nice set-up..was running the d17 sohc vtec motor, full turbo..9psi he said..ZEX75 shot, and a seperate nitrous tank for his intercooler to cool the intake charge...first decent import ive seen in this area for quite sometime..i was impressed..so there ya have it!:D

the mustang turned off, it only had like exhaust, nothing major he wouldve lost to both of us..very quick car..the civic was..but then again with that much FI and nitrous id expect it to be, i dont think i did bad considering my mods..and the guy who owned it was cool...unlike so many of the people in this scene lately..peace

Turboing those lil sohc civics seems dum to me.

Theres one around here I raced and I beat him by trucklengths.
No nitrous tho.

why is it dumb to turbo a single cam? theres a guy here running a 94 civic hatch with the sohc vtec 1.6..runs 13.0 all day..and this civic would probably have put buslengths on you, but its all good

I remember a long time ago you were arguing on how keeping your butterflys open all the time really helps your top end. I looked at your sig and thought, since you have a p28 that comp. is not used to having butter flys so basically it compensates for not having them, so if you keep them open all the time it doesnt really hurt you as bad as satan srv says. He did a dyno with his obd2 comp with his butterflys open. If you were to do this with obd2 comps it would not work because it would take power away. Do you see wat im getting at? Sorry for this post, but i just had it on my mind. Good work with your car. That **** must be sick.

u seem dum to me for making that comment.

the D16 is a lot stronger than the DOHC engines...b/c it is a SOHC.

Y do u think all the benzes come in SOHC???

:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

i am curious why are the SOHC stronger, i always thought that DOHC was the thing to get but not if your turboing up?? can somebody clarify that for me, cause yea all the civics that i see turboed are usually the SOHC now that i think about it. :confused:

haha speaking of civics, i just hate them. you know why? cuz their so facking slow. but well well, ppl spend money and make them crazy fast. my friend had a all motor sleeper civic running 12.7's. i hate it when u match up against something thats SUPPOSED to be slow.. and they own. but thats just part of the fun aint it? :D
