TOV posted an update on their project Si: http://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=434719

Of interest from their message board:

We actually have the IPS K2 cams. Right now, without tuning, we estimate flywheel output at about 250-255 hp. We expect flywheel output to exceed 270 hp when we're done with this stage, and that will be with a totally stock head, intake manifold and bottom end.

I personally am not feeling their car. I really am not feeling that carbon truck for some reason. Is it just me, or what are your thoughts on the car? The #'s look nice though, I'll say that.

I agree - they need to do something about the silver insert around the license plate which would help. Silver is one of my least favorite colors, also don't care for the wheels (but at around 13.5 lbs for 17s I'd consider a set for the track). And seeing those pics sans-spoiler makes me appreciate the Si spoiler. However... their car is all about the go and you can't argue with that. :driving:

I don't like the carbon fiber trunk. The wheels are pretty cool, though.

The Si seems to respond well to mods :thumb:

New pics over at TOV. Looking more like the concept. I'm liking the rear a little better, but they still need to do something about the license plate insert.

i have to agree, with a few of yah.
the carbon fiber rear did kind threw it off, but they did fix it. some florida dealer send them a black center peace to match the cf. now the numbers we cant arguee with. but they didnt have enough time to even get the HFP body kit on. oh well still a great car to me.
