Thanks Erik! I spoke with Mark this afternoon and no slot ATM for Sunday. I am first on the list though... If I don't get to drive, I'll still come down to help Scott.

My inspiration! Same artist did the one on my signature photo. I do love the look!

That rear diffuser is definitely on my list. And, maybe one day, the wide body kit! That would be sweet!

The biggest thing with that is how much money did they have to put into the four banger to beat the V8?

So many honda's going i can beat your V8 Camaro. All i say is how much did you spend to beat me? Its most of the time more then what i paid, or its just a matter of time to see how long the car holds up. Stock my car is built to be fast, when you start getting into modding your car, i think you start shortening the life of it. Just like some people with diesel trucks, yeah they can beat me but in 5 years lets see, or just see how much money they have had to do in repairs. The reason our cars are Limited to 155 is that from the factory they say any faster and we are not sure that all the parts on your car will hold up.

I think everyone has different priorities. Some people really love to work on and improve their cars. They can by a cheaper car and put the difference into mods. Others are fine with leaving it stock. Don't think there is one right answer.

Soooo...whats fast to you? Your post is kinda irrelevant. Do you mean fast in a straight line? Fast on a track? Fast getting pushed out of an airplane?

And your notion for stock for stock w/ same amt of mod money is irrelevant too because that stock honda didnt cost as much as your stock camaro, correct?

Having owned 4 cyl Hondas, V8 GTO, turbo'd SRT-4 (which,btw, was my fastest 1/4mi car I owned) and now my 2nd v6 car, I'm not sure one is better than the others. Sure, the 4cyl is not a potent of a base as a large cube v8, but weight differences up to and over 1000 lbs play into the equation too.

But to add to the Joe-Dirtism of this argument, my 4 cyl SRT-4 was faster than your Camaro

Joe Dirt: Comin' to work. Joe Deertay.
KXLA Security Guard: Don't try and church it up son. Don't you mean Joe Dirt? Naming you that your father must've really hated you.
Joe Dirt: You're wrong brother.
KXLA Security Guard: I got a good name for this car, Rusty.
Joe Dirt: Shit'll buff out.
KXLA Security Guard: Don't bother, just drive this piece of crap off a cliff. Do us all a favor.
Joe Dirt: Does this look like a piece of crap to you? Like them spinnin' tires do you?
KXLA Security Guard: You suck!
joe Dirt: You do!

Beauwulf, what disc brakes have you installed? I can see you did the Brembo upgrade, but you have slotted/drilled rotors, which brand did you go with?

They are not the best out there. I did try a pair of these on the front with HP+ pads on the V6 calipers. At Sebring , they held up well so, I got the full set for the SS to go with the Brembos. I'll let you know how they work out if I get to drive at HMS Sunday.

I got them here:

Awesome thanks! I actually went and bought a set myself, they have to be better than what came stock and I'm not racing her like you are, I mostly want it for regular stopping and show purposes.

How hard was it to change them out?

To swap out for these rotors and the Brembos wasn't too hard. I just had to trim the edge off the rear dust shield because the larger SS rotors won't fit inside the cover. For you it'll be one screw per rotor...

Its the people who take a Honda civic, and upgrade it to beat the cars in a straight line. From the factory it wasn't really built to handle that so the life of the car will probably not outlast a stock car. Just like with the diesel trucks. They can beat a V8 Camaro fairly easy with some cheap mods, my buddy proved it to me, but because of the mods his clutch didn't last very long and he kept having more problems then i ever have.

I love the SRT 4's they are awesome little cars, and yeah they are fast just like the Cobalt SS turbo is actually almost faster then the V8 Camaro in a straight line. Those two cars can be faster, just i don't think they will handle the mods better and last as long as an already big motor can. They will be faster, and might not have costed a bunch of money to make them that fast, but the maintenance cost probably went up. On the day a turbo or supercharger goes out its going to be a nice fix. Where on a naturally aspirated motor, unless its a lemon wont cost as much on the upkeep end of things.

I admit there are cars out there that will beat a V8. no doubt about that, just saying the life expectancy of the modded Civic, or average 4 cylinder probably wont be as long, but you can always prove me wrong.

As far as autocross goes... check with Xanthos on my cars abilities...
How was the ride harshness after installing the Xa coilovers?

Did you get any of the bushings kits or alignment kits to go with them?

I'm planning on buying a set of Xa's this spring.

I agree with you about all of that.
I would rather run a conservative set up on a larger motor than try to produce so much high-pressure-hp out of a smaller 4 cyl.
