The Stealth R/T is definitely not rice. even if its not a R/T its most likely faster than most of FWD I4's stock. My Brother's VR-4 was a mid 13second car just running a little over stock boost.

Actually the non turbo stealths and 3000 gts were horridly slow. Not rice unless riced, but slow either way. The VR4s and such were amazing, if you could afford to fix them since they always broke if driven hard. lol.
This thread is fun.

1. Just because its a honda (or any japanese car for that matter), does not make it rice. For anyone who mods on a regular basis, Honda motors are a better starting platform because there is a better market for them.
2. A factory stock car is not rice, focus had an option for the SAP, does that make it rice? Bringing me to the next point.
3. Just because it has a body kit, does not make it rice, there are ALOT out there that are done very tastefully. And for those who argue that bodykits make cars look all the same, When a company builds a kit, typically it keeps the same design influence all the way around as the company trade mark.
4. (relating to the above) Just because you do not like it, does not make it rice.
5. A part of the time, those who make posts about "rice" are people who consantly whine about focus bashing. and then make post about decent looking cars... double standard anyone.

not rice..


not rice... although i personally dont like all the stickers

Ya a lot of foreign cars are done really well I also am not a fan of the massive stickers nor the flames. To me rice is a lot of stuff that looks like it's thrown together last minute along with a tacky paint job or in some cases no paint.

Rice..
1st one is not rice, 2nd one is borderline, with the stickers and such, third is rice.

The 3000GT/Stealth is rice, even if its a VR4 (Or R/T), because it has dual farts cans...

^^Thank You. I don't give a crap how tastefully someone mods their car, if it gets a fart can, it becomes instant RICE by default. The rest is just semantic BS, but the fart can is the badge of [dis]honor.(Oh, and I can tell the difference between a high quality exhaust, like HKS Hi Power, which is NOT rice, and a resonator tip, which IS)

that was going to be my next point... fart can is definately InstaRice. But some ppl dont seem to understand that alot of makes put the muffler in the back u cant just assume that an aftermarket muffler is a fart can. a closer inspection could yeild a full exhaust
