2012 Camaro 2LS vs 2009 Civic SI

Who would win here, and how close would it be: 2012 Camaro 2LS (automatic) vs 2009 Civic SI (4-door manual). Both cars are stock.

I don't think the Camaro would have any trouble.

From Edmunds:

"
Performance

Thanks to variable valve timing, the Honda Civic Si's 2.0-liter four-cylinder packs 197 horsepower, which is reasonable for its class, as is its 0-60-mph time of 7 seconds flat. But those numbers can be deceptive in the real world. The engine's 139 pound-feet of torque is a whopping 68 lb-ft less than the VW GLI's, causing a dearth of low-end pull when scooting around town or passing on the highway."

That looks about the same as the LS, least the 0-60...

I don't think Civic would be a problem for you...

And Orlando Speedoworld Dragway is open to the public every Friday night from 6pm-10pm and every FIRST sunday of the month from 10am-4pm.

My buddies and I go out there at least once a month and will be there this coming Sunday May6th. I've been trying to get some V6 camaros out there. PM me if your interested.

Sounds like a good place, I would like to run a v6 Mustang too. Btw, nice color choice, I love the grabber blue.

I will pm you with some info. I am going to make a run or so soon, still need to wait 500 miles though (just have 1001 on it now), going to finish the brake in, then add oil and I will be good to go.

I would have to say drivers race. I have a 2006 civic si coupe (<100 lbs different than the sedan) and i ran a 14.756 @ 94.2 MPH stock. on stock garbage tires, when it was 80. however i am a very good driver, and i power shifted. If you look at my time slip the other car was a 2007 silver Si sedan. he ran a 16.3 @ 88 MPH. the day i did this there was a srt-4 owner that was at the track like every week and said he'd never seen an Si hit the 14's. Which was what i was going for, i had bet 5 friends that i would do it. (i made a lot of money that day). and the SRT-4 owner couldn't believe it.

so that being said if you race me you'll lose, if you race that other guy you'll kill him. My time would put me at #6 on this websites v6 fast list. I was scope out the driver, ask him what rpm's he launches at and how much traction he has in 1st gear. and if he power shifts. these answers i could tell you in 2 seconds if he's gonna run a good time. the proper launch is 3000 RPM's and you have ZERO traction all the way through 1st gear. this is so that when you hit 2nd gear you shift and your rpms stay above the magic 6k rmps iVTEC point. Also i was NEVER able to run a 14 without power shifting. so if he doesn't know what this is than he's done.

Camaro all day. Ran one yesterday. Started in 3rd gear at 50 mph and put about 6 cars on him. Did another run from the same speed in 2nd gear and put about 10 cars on him.

Agreed, but I bought it 6 years go, before the Camaro was out, and it was the fastest new car i could afford at the time. I'm going to get a Camaro SS next spring

Funny yes? Can you tell when vtec kicks in on my car? Yes, it's a second torque peak. You feel and hear it. this is only true on the SI's, s2000's, and some accords maybe. a regular civic has vtec but it's not for performance its for fuel economy.
