thanks man i really appreciate that!

well this setup has not made it to the track yet. but before i tell the disappointing numbers ill explain the setup.

so previous car was full interior hatchback had same engine as this one though it had shorter rods bringing the compression way low like in the 8:1 range.
that car made just under 300whp on the dyno but it was super peaky and powerband did not last long at all. that was on 91 pump gas.

this car is no interior coupe. the new engine has about 9-9.5:1 CR. pretty much the same everything else though i will be going with e85 this time around and shooting for closer to 400whp when all is said and done. (takeing baby steps to get there)

so the previous cars fastest was 13.14 if i recall correctly. now that super sad but it was at 112mph so there is a lot more there. also it was on street tires and my 2.6 60 foot really shows that lolol. (some of that is driver as well)
new setup will have slicks on it once i get the budget for it lol.

thanks for the interest guys. feel free to roast my slow ass car/driving ability.

That's a very tasteful and well thought out custom Civic. It's not like some of the over the top ricer abominations I've seen.
