what can your svt beat?

well im getting my 04 sonic blue svt tomorow or thursday and it has the k&n typhoon intake and the highflow cat. the only other mod i want is the focus tune. ive read that the exhaust and header are pretty much maxed out in air flow..so i was just wondering if anyone has a simliar setup and what cars theyve beaten or kept up with

I'm waiting to see if I can beat my friend's Integra GS-R. I have the weight and torque advantage.

It depends on what kind of race you want to talk.

In terms of straight line, SVTfs arent all that impressive. 170hp is toyota camry numbers, and front wheel drive doesnt help.


Where SVTfs rock is in the handling. And in that department, its more of a question of what can keep up with you.

from a roll they are great it is from a dig that they suck. but yea twisties is where the car really shines. i have beat plenty of cars built for their handleing in corners. but i have my supention done up it's mostly not stock. in a drag i have beat plenty of stangs a gto from a 60mph punch and more riced out civics then i could count. of and the other day some guy in an older chevy truck. i had him on the bottom end but he started closing the gap on the top.

thats kinda the problem for a N/A SVTF. they handle like a beast but from a stop they seam to take forever to get going. but once your out of 1 and around 3000rpm in 2 they go! but then you get to 6 at 6000rpm and you kinda top out. it will keep gaining speed but it has no more pull. so basicly you want to try and do all you racing in 2-5 gear and between 3000-6000rpm.

So you're telling me with your svt you beat a mazdaspeed6...?

The guy had to be an idiot and not know what he was doing or he wasn't racing you.

Unless you are turbo there is no way you would beat that car from a dig or roll.

274 hp and 280tq @ 3,000 rpm and awd.
He would rape you without trying.

the gsr shouldnt be a problem for you. i put probably 6 car lengths on a gsr eg hatch with an aem cai and lightweight flywheel with a header and cat back. then he said the cam caps were vackwards. mind you this guy built a 12 sec d16 making 302whp. he is the john of civics around here. but after i beat it he sold it, odd. i didnt beat the 12 sec one for the record, i beat the gsr swapped one.
