Bolt on, tuned, with internal engine work, they might run a mid 13 if they hook. I wouldn't worry about any of them tbh.

Ummmmmm..... My friend in his 2012 Civic Si with SRI couldn't break 15's at the track man! His best time was 16.0 @ 88, best time of his friend's modified rx8 was 15.8 @ 90. He's got this one in the bag, a stock V6 Camaro auto did 15.0 @ 93.8 in same horrible conditions w/2.3 60 foot, MagnumForceGB(C5 member) did 14.9 @ 96ish the same night his Civic was running.

You got it. I murdered an SI in Mexico last week. If you do a dig race. You win. If you do a roll race you have the edge but don't mess up. I have a m6 though. Don't know the outcome if you have an auto, but you have the better car.

Reason I ask is obviously my buddy has a si as stated. Everytime we meet up he wants to race. I keep putting it off either drinking an I def aint racing an or I simply dont wanna. Im trying to stick it to the track anymore. To much to risk losing an putting others in danger obviously. I've road in it a few times its peppy. Again also as why i ask is Im not into the whole import tuner stuff its cool and all just nahhhh.. So im not to sure as what those cars can do.

They feel "peppy" because they are light and small.

If he's stock motor, you will beat him badly.
If he's boosted he will destroy you.
K20 swap is a common mod.
It's the same 2.0 except its 270lbft tq / 240 hp.
Then add a tune, easy 300whp
In a 2600/2800 lb car, don't snooze.

very common around my area as far as tuners go, a guy at a detail shop i worked at swapped a prelude motor in his civic and though it wasnt boosted, it was very "quick" Those things arent to be messed with when they are boosted and tuned correctly.

Anyways, I think you can take that Si op

SRI?

That youtube channel you sent me, that 6MT 02 Max that your friends ran and lost to, I know everything about that car. I even test drove it with my friend, the former owner. I did a lot of the work too. When it just had bolt ons and a drop, we ran a 07 maybe SI? It was only a couple car lengths slower and the max was running at least mid 13s.
That SI had deep engine work, cams, port work, everything, probably a mid to high 13 second car. So they can be quick, but not without heavy engine work.

Short ram intake.

You talking about Yonkers Racing RSX Type S ? He has weight reduction(backseats, spare tire/jack, CF hood, lightweight battery) and full bolt ons with an aggressive custom tune and driver mod.

My 2 friends in full bolt on flashpro Civic Si Mugens were running 15's at the track. Albeit DA was bad that day, I trapped 98-99 that day. When DA was below 1000 the following week I trapped 101-102.


FF to 5:29


I'm at 3:55


Not saying RSX Type S and Civic Si's of YR's speed don't exist, they are very very rare.

Back in highschool my friends brother had a built turbo civic that ran 10's. Full interior, can't remember if he was running slicks but I'm assuming he was. A civic done right will fly, just not my first choice of cars.

Look up Yonkers Racing, he just has bolt ons and tune. Runs with BMW M5's and 335i's and full bolt on tuned 350Z's. It's an RSX Type S, which is same thing as Civic Si but has no lsd.

No, I've seen civics with full interiors pulling 10s with a built motor & turbo swap.

For the record, why does it matter if its a big turbo, you have a big block v8.

Also the majority of imports do not run nitrous, only some of the drift cars.

Otherwise it's turbos & built motors, just remember its also hp to wt ratio.

If he's built, (alot are I've seen first hand) just don't be ****y.

Your giving up almost a half a ton, if he's boosted forget it.

Op, personally hope you whip him but, dont be closed minded.

You can't always judge a book by its cover, sometimes it's the little guys you have to watch out.

A newer Si with bolt ons is good for high 13s. Stock, when well driven, they are 14 second cars.

Who has a big block? My SS came with a small block. Is this a member who doesn't know anything about the car and should probably educate themselves before sticking foot in mouth?

I am usually one of the few members on this forum who gives imports a solid view (hell, I almost picked up an IS-F over the camaro) and defends them from the 'murican bias, but most of your comments...are very off base.

As for the V6 camaro vs. a SI...several factors here. What year are we talking? Are we talking original VTEC or that sad version of VTEC called i-VTEC? Also, the civic just went up .2 liters and got a little bit of improvement on the low end in the last 2 model years. Need more information before judgement can be made.

Hey guys, first post on this forum, my best friend has a v6 camaro (11) and I have a 07 si, I thought I'd be able to possibly add some insight...I got my butt handed to me lol. Granted I wasn't used to my car, it was on a street (which was stupid I know), we went from a dig and I didn't launch (he has an automatic), but I think by time we got to 80 he was probably 2.5 cars ahead of me. I expected to lose in all honesty since the p/w ratio for the 5th gen is 15.2 and for the civic is 16.1 that's just hp, not even torque (which is like a 100 ft'lb more) The only place the civic shines (stock) against the camaro (stock) would be the twistys. Not necessarily because it's is a better handling machine but because you can really feel the difference in weight and the throw-ability of the si. Even the skidpads are similair (.86 for the camaro i believe, and .9 for the si).

I just threw some minor bolt-ons (i/h/e) and want to see where I stack up now (i want to try from a roll now lol)
