Foci vs. Civic

My friend is running his mouth about how he's gonna beat me in his civic. All he has is a intake pretty much. He also has a bodykit and 18's working against him.

It's a 1997 5spd, SOHC.

You think I can win in my 2004 Zetec 2.0 5spd, DOHC?

The sohc engine in the 1997 civic has 106 horserpower and 103 lb.-ft of torque. enough said.

You can't lose. You just can't I dont see it happening. I could probably stall the engine, turn it back on and still beat him I'm serious.

Unless you are a terrible driver but you dont have to be very good to beat that.

the 106hp beast wasnt the only sohc motor there, dont forget the EX model came with a 127hp motor.. but yes you should take him easily, 18s will slow the hell out of that down.. plus youve got a little more power..

LoL that isnt even a race. I wish you could get it on tape when you beat him really bad... And how far you take it up to.... You would easily have 3 or 4 car lengths on him if ya take it past 100

hahaha you gotta be kidding me, you should beat him no problem. The fact that you got a brand new car and he has a 97 makes up for the fact that he might have 127 hp. The fact that its a lil older may show that his car will prolly have some wear. Especially since hes running his mouth You should be able to shut him up

is it a coupe or a hatch? The 18's are whats killing him. If he didnt have the 18's and its a hatch, I think youd be suprised.
