34.6" rear legroom
Reactive-Link Double Wishbone Rear Suspension
110hp hybrid
weight distribution 60/40
30/40 MPG AT5
50/50 MPG Hybrid

Si -
length 174.8"
width 68.9"
height 53.5"
wheelbase 104.3"
weight 2844 lbs.
0-60 - 7.3sec
top speed - 136mph
EPA 22/31
estimated price $19,500

0-60 in 7.3 :confused: wow. umm... way worse than i expected. didnt honda learn from its mistake of making the prelude that heavy? whats even worse is that most of the competition (srt-4, cobalt ss, etc) rapes the si. hell, thats the league of the scion tc, se-r spec-v, etc. which can be had for thousands less. and this car was suppose to be built for performance?? hopefully C&D estimated the time, because theres nothing to be proud about being as fast as a 10-year old gs-r. but somethings not right here.

si
197 hbp @ 7800
139 lb-ft @ 6200
104.3 in
2877 lb
0-60 7.3

rsx-s
201 bhp @ 7800 rpm (after sae revisions)
143 lb-ft @ 7000 rpm
101.2 in
2848 lb
0-60 6.2 sec

somethings not right here? oh well. i take back all my previous statements about thinking the si would be faster than the rsx-s. you disappointed me honda.

I really dont buy that 0-60 time.....but then again, there is more to performance than 0-60 times.... I think thats a high number though.... I think 6.5 is more on target.

if you remember honda was conservative on the rsx-s numbers too before its release. the si should be quicker since peak tq is in a more usable rpm and with the fact that the si has an lsd to launch with both wheels turning vs the one. both cars wiegh the same so...just wait till the full test. 7.3sec would have it in the high 15s. my prelude sh stock did 0-60 in 6.9 1/4 15.4. so the mag test drive. so just wait it out. motortrena always seems to drive the best. haha

honda just released their est. 0-60 for the si at 6.7. they also stated that the si isnt limited until 8500rpm, which could mean the C&D editor shifted at redline, which could explain the slower time.

ur right. i had a 98 prelude sh too. if that was 15.4 stock and it was at almost 3100lbs with 200hp/156tq. the si being 2900lbs...might do 15.0. being that the stock 05 rsx does 14.9 and si is 100lbs more. but the lsd on the si will help off the line so the could end up being the same.

from tov article:

"The only downside is that these tightly spaced ratios now require an upshift to 3rd gear to reach 60mph, which will impact magazine 0-60 test times to some extent. "

an extra shift on the way to 60 could also hamper the 0-60 time. a quarter mile # will give us a better idea.
