ok so theres a kid around were i live has a crx with he sayas 210hp but someone else said its really only 168 hp i beleive them more. and he drives this black primer crappy looking car around reving at me when i see him and just acting like its the baddest thing around i got a jrsc on my svt and i dont think he knows it because i dont flaunt it off around town. question is how much will the weight factor weigh in on this if i run him? i know they are very light but i got a decent amount more hp then him. i just want to beat him and make him shut up maybe.

If he is really making that kind of power, he will probably win as that is a 13 sec. car!!

Ya, I'd expect he would!!! 168 out of an 1800 lb car w/ driver is a high 13 sec. car and w/210 hp, its a low 13 second car. thing you have to ask though is are they bragging numbers ( is it at the crank?) or actual numbers (at the wheels) There is no way that is NA as those only made like 90 crank hp stock!! its gotta be FI, if its not, then he's pullin ur leg!!!

I dunno, but there is no way he is making 168 whp NA on a 1.6 L engine that makes 70 whp stock w/ a SOHC!! Unless he's running at like 14k rpm, so I'm guessing N20 or boost!!

he probably has an engine swap.. find out what he has under his hood... A B16 can make 168whp N/A with the proper modifications...

man, those hondas are like legos and you can get new, complete motors for very cheap. i bet you he has a B16 swap which is torquey and is vtec. plus, just the weight of that car plus the claimed numbers would make it a beast of a car

ya, thats possible, i was just saying there in no way the stock crx 1.6 L motor w/ sohc made that much power, a swap na could easily make that power.

i dunno if it is just a stock B16 or only has basic boltons you might be able to at least give him a good run..... IF he has gotten into doing some real work to it then that is a different story altogether... There is only one real way to find out!

The only way you'll have a real chance is from a stop.

i dont know what alls done but i know he runs around ragging it out trying to blow it so his dad will put a better motor in it. so its prolly not in the best condition. he runs around with it boxed out alot.

B20 is what i meant. when you haven't messed with hondas in so long you tend to start forgetting stuff.
