Most of the old GM blocks are crap like that. Up until the last two years, ALL of their V6 and V8 engines (sans Vette) have been archaic pieces of garbage. Example: My father owned an '89 Celebrity. 2.7L V6. My sister has a 2000 Malibu. 3.1L V6. Same basic motor. We also have an '02 Impy, 3.4L V6. Same motor again. I have a 2004 Malibu, 3.5L V6. You guessed it.

In 1989, that SOHC made about 150HP. It makes 200 in my car, still a dino. The Maxima of that year was pumping out 40 more horses.

Only recently has GM made a good V6 - the DI, 300HP one you find in the Camaro RS.

Not taking away from your kill man, just hating on how GM has made garbage since the 80s. Your ST is pretty sweet, and rather quick for what it is. :)

Ya they were weak in hp but still 240 ft. lb's of torque which should make that car move a little bit faster than it did... after researching those cars quite a bit they definitely weren't rocket ships... And your not taking anything away from my kill at all... I didn't even want to race the guy!

I wanted to race a V-tak! LOL!

But he was so insistant and I'm sorry but when you have 2 girls with you and your bragging about your car and how great it is... and I'm only driving a Focus with just an intake... I can't refuse the oppurtunity!!

Hell I almost felt bad accepting his offer knowing I was about to crush his ego in front of 2 cute girls..................................... in a focus lol

nothing will take away the picture in my mind of him doing this after the race...

If you wanna race a NA V-TAK, I know the perfect guy. But you're a bit far away. 190HP/185TQ to the wheels, it's an EK coupe. 2400lb. curb weight...fastest FWD I've ever driven. And honestly, that's the limit of power I'd want in a FWD car, anyway.

190whp I can believe... Those Vtec's can crank out hp...But 185ft.lb's of torque is a bit much for an NA 4cyl vtec... I would need to see a Dyno to believe with 190whp he is putting down as much as 185ft.lb's of torque to the wheels... That's the kinda torque difference you would see with a turbocharged motor...

I'm sure he would probably take me easily if he's putting down 190whp...especially as light as he is...Keep in mind The only mod I'm only running is an Intake LOL... But I'd still race him though! If I lost I lost to a gutted Built NA Vtak... SO what!

But if I won it would be an embarrassment to all VTAKS hahaahaha

I dunno much about Hondas, but I remember it's a Frankenstein engine. I think a B20 block with B18 heads? I think the B18 was the CRV motor, which would explain the TQ I guess. But there's a lot more going on in the motor that just that. I haven't been able to take a detailed looks, to be honest with you. I have seen him chirp third though, which is hilarious...friggin' Civic.

i can't really tell what gen that bird was...but im guessing a 3rd gen because all those motors were a disgrace to V8's, and you wouldn't have put the hurt on an LT1...but nice kill nonetheless
