i bet not much difference because of the new auto is 5spd. and the internals are alot less than the old 4spd tranny. im curious too. i asked JEFF at vtec.net to dyno this car. i was beginning to feel like the r18 was the evil step son. lol. the guys love the ex. they are running them both ex/si on a track to see how they differ in handling/braking.

I believe this just shows how fast the car is geared for. ( I could be wrong on this) Drag will knock those numbers down fast. Actual top speeds are probably more like 115 and 130.

wow... I think he's a little biased after driving the Si though...lol

But seriously, that's great news...I just wish they'd dyno it on rollers sometime...:(
