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.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them

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.

And the doors and the seats and the exhaust and the fact that it's a honda.. But you gotta love that v-tec.. They get a good 700hp if they have the right stickers on them.
