crazy_urn according to edmunds, the 1.6 in the 99 civic was rated at 106 HP. So not that different HP wise, despite the different displacement.

Plus, the old civic is probably also lighter than your old focus.

Displacement is not everything...

Hope you enjoy the new SVT.

The SVT should be completely different.
Well. The civic is also an automatic..... It's amazing how small everything is under the hood. The battery is half the size, the exhaust is smaller, intake is smaller must be gearing, at least the focus handles nicer

99 civic 1.6 faster

My girlfriend complains that my focus spi is much slower than her 99 civic with a tiny 1.6 L sohc I don't understand why she has so much more power... Neither engine has any mods. I mean whatever, I got sick of it and bought an SVT.
