By the way, those turbo'd Civics would kill your non-turbo'd Focus in the 1/4 mile.

YUP! I felt like that I wanted to see how fast he would go but never got the chance to see. Although before he wefollowed me by the next 20 miles all the way to college, but before he left he stompped the gas and it was loud and fast I don't think I would stand a chance.

i learned along time ago to watch out for civic hatches in my area. in seattle, we have a very big import scene, and many of the civic hatches around here are SLEEPERS. we're talkin type-R and GSR motors in a good 80% of them out there. the 2 doors and 4 doors around here seem to be all show, no go. but i watch out :D just wait til next week when the turbo goes in :D.

As far as turboed civics go. A single cam turbo is very slow unlesss he has some other stuff done to it. One of my buddys has a 95 si hatch SOHC witha lot a stuff done to it. He raced a 96 turboed dx with full exhaust and intake and won by like a half a car. Both of them can drive very good. He wants to race me. I may just to see what happens.
