probally not, those nasty rice burning honda are quick for only having 100 or so HP. it also depends on the model. HP ranges on those from 70- 110 so it really depends. not to mention your car weighs like 600 lbs more then his.

its not uncommon for those older civics to have the newer 160hp motors in them.

my buddies 94 hatch, only had header and exaust and CAI and beat a 2.3 duratec with exaust. crazy that car has over 150 HP and he had only 110 or so. and both were MXT's so go figure, he was trying to f*** with SVT's and I told him no way- later on he wrecked it, so never found out, glad it didnt race an SVT because I didnt want him to be embarassed.

I hate hondas- go rice go

It doesn't surprise me that a civic could beat a focus for numerous reasons. A stock zx2 will take a stock civic but not a civic si. A zx2 s/r with take a civic si. We all know a stock zx2 will take a focus. Main reason for this is the vehicles weight and the fact that the zx2 gearing is a little better for the 1/4 mile. However the zx2 trans is a weak pile of crap, compared to the focus. My advice is to turbocharge that sucker and show those imports what up. Oh yeah their is such a thing as a zx2 s/r. I use to own one before it was totalled, here is a picture if you dont believe me that there is such a thing as a zx2 s/r

I remember you and your catalytic converter problem, if you haven't got that resolved yet, yes, that will suck you dry of power.

well I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who has had some bad luck against those freakin ricers.....however, if I do anything, I'm going supercharged...not turboed 1) too high maintenance 2) not as reliable......anyways I need to get the cat fixed and run it again...I feel that I might could take him.....by the way it's the 4dr with DOHC
