Are you comparing performance or parts of the car that glow? The obvious performer is the Camaro. The obvious thing that glows is the Civic. Are you more into tachometer lights or cars that are fun to drive?

Camaro > SI by far in Performance. Now everyday drivability could go in the Civic's favor.

will smoke it
My brother smoked a newer SI and i mean SMOKED it in his stock 05 4.0 stang.
I dont know why anyone would buy an SI, you put premium gas in it for what, a POS?
And im not lieing, i have come on the forum and worte about how shocked i was when a Mazda 3 Speed was on my ass. Had a hard time shaking him a my 2LT/RS
So what i posted is true if you doubt it lol
I hate civics, there only fun when you have friends in the car because its easy to show off. But when your by yourself, its just annoying running into them because they think theyre soo damn fast. Check theyre 0-60 times, its a joke to pay that price for a car which needs premium btw.
Now the Genesis 3.8, that would take us

but guys, the Honda makes nearly 100 hp/L and it has ivtec. The 'maro doesn't stand a chance.


Sorry about that.


Anywho, here's how the performance stats stack up:
Stat-----Si---------Camaro (all these are rough approximations)
0-60 --- 7s- -------6s
1/4: ----low 15s- --low 14s
Slalom: -68 mph- --68 mph
Skidpad: 0.85g -----0.9g
60-0:--- 120ft -----110ft


The Si is a little behind in power to weight, but is severely lacking in torque. The car will hardly accelerate if you mash the gas and are turning anything less than 5000 rpm. You won't even save money on gas. While the Si gets better mileage, it requires premium vs the regular for the Camaro negating the gains. The ride quality and driving dynamics of the Camaro should also be better.

A race? you'd smoke it.

Like other have said, you will have to rev the crap out of it to get any power so around town driving will suck compared to the V6 in the Camaro.

As for technology, the V6 is direct injection, which is pretty high tech these days.

have you driven one? you make it sound like driving around at 3000 rpm is physically taxing chore.

around town driving is just fine in the Si.

yup totally agree i had a k20a type-s will bolt-ons and that thing got up and went...if modded somewhat decently they can be quick but still not take a CAMARO

actually yes, cause you have more power, your not driving a honda, you have more cylinders, and your probably getting the same mpg's running on regular fuel with a bigger engine

i like the new SI they are decently quick and very reliable, my roots are honda's (GSR) but stock for stock there is no comparison. Camaro V6 > Civic SI

I agree, not bad, but the Camaro will be better.

No I haven't driven one, but I have driven an AP1 S2000 with intake/exhaust and tuned ECU. At low rpms, that thing was slow. It really never pushed me back in the seat until that vtec cam hit at what, 7K rpm or whatever. With the Camaro's higher torque at a lower rpm, it makes for better around town driving, especially if you have a manual tranny.
