Like the old joke: What do 500hp Supras and 900hp Supras have in common? 12 second 1/4 mile times.
LOL, back when I had my CRX with its stock D16A6 (108hp) and a SRI+cat-back I used to run mid 15's @ 88mph with 1.9-2 second 60' times. I would run against less skilled GSR and TypeR owners that had trouble keeping up and couldn't BELIEVE that I didn't have a motor swap.
