Well I plan to hit up the drag strip every now and then to see what my Si is capable of once I break it in. By the summer I'll have I/RH/E on and I was thinking about buying some cheap 16" wheels (like 06 steel OEM civic wheels) and fitting them nitto 555R radials, what ya think? Im shooting for like mid to low 14's at least until hondata comes out with an ECU reflash...then 13's!! ahhh the beauty of honda all motor 2liter 13 sec daily driver

very doable, i believe in stock form on dr's it will go low-mid 14's with a skilled driver. someone ran 14.83 with a horrible 2.39 60 ft. so yes you'll go 13's at the right DA and a very good launch with perfect shifts....
