Why the foci is superior

Ive been a Foci fanatic for a bout a a year or two, And i just wanna say i love my foci. I think ppl who dont give the foci in credit are morans. My stock 4-door foci woops on moded hondas all damn day. everyone says its an economy car, and it is. HAHAHAAH, Foci are the baddest economy cars around. They are superior in all editions........

SPI > D15
Zetec > vtech
SVT > K series and B series
RS > I-vtech and all hondas

FOCI will always rule, I love my car I dont know how everyone else feels but everyone one this forums kicks ass. lol

I think your chart is a little skewed.

I can see a SPI beating a D15, but a zetec is not going to beat a DOHC VTEC motor, sorry. SVT motors are good, but they're not going to beat a K20, they might beat a B series depending on how old it is and which B series motor it is. I don't even consider the RS a contender since we don't even have it here.

I agree. Focus motors are nice, but they hardly are top dog compared to some of the other offerings out there. I've spent a fair amount of coin getting my D23 to the same level of performance from a stock S2000 with F22C. VTEC is an impressive technology considering its been around since the early 90s, and only now are engines getting capable of offering the top end power and the low end drivability of a VTEC equipped engine.

where to start?

1. if you are going to call someone a moron, at least spell "moron" correctly.
2. stock zetec makes less horsepower than ANY DOHC vtec engine.
4. the K series is widely regarded as the best 4 cylinder engine currently in production. great engine design by honda.
5. is the RS better than the s2000 or NSX?

My wife owns a Honda Accord EX and as much as I like her car, I'd never trade it for mine. I just love my car. To me, it doesn't matter if the engine is more powerful or less powerful because you can always add power to it. Personally, i'd rather have a car that has less power. It's all the more work I get to do to it and all the more accomplishment I fell once it's done.

If your talking about the 01-05 EP3 civics with the "I-VTEC" badges, those
motors are not the same K20 motor that's in the RSX typeS or the 06 Civic si,
the motor in the EP3's make considerably less power.
