firmhonda said:Si's generally dyno out around 175-180 whp stock.. Which means that there's roughly a 20 hp difference between crank and whp. That being said that would mean that the r18 puts down around 120ish whp, which I will not argue with at all. The thing I will argue with is the fact that it's so easy to get 160+whp out of it.. Granted, the r18 is leagues ahead of the d17a1+2, but I still can't see it being extremely easy to get 40 whp out of it..
ABSOLUTE bs. si coupes were 99-00 not 01 btw.hmm. im not sure if 0-60 in the 7second range is slow for a civic. Looking that all the older gen civics had a hard time doing anything quicker than the 8-9secd range from 0-60. The r18's with a good driver keeps up with some v-6 engines for god sakes. For a econo box, i would say thats pretty impressive. And those other gen civics coudltn compare stock for stock by a long shot! The 00'-01' Si coupe even have to try to keep up with my (only AEM Cold air intake) ex coupe. Mind u the Si of that year had I/H/E. .
