    Sounds like any VTEC engine, and that's not a slam against Honda. That's about all I've ever owned.

    does all VTEC engines feel like you're not even punching it when you actually are until the last string of RPMs?

    Uhhh that's called VTEC. Get it up to 6K and then keep it on boil. Then it'll be fun.

    that's how all hondas are. they're mild mannered under 5-6k when you're just cruising around town. I don't know why you're surprised

    Its a fucking honda what do you expect.

    The point is to get great fuel under 6000 RPM.

    God you're an idiot. It's not a fucking corvette or mustang; you have to keep the thing wound up TIGHT to get any power out of it. However, once you reach around 6200k, if you can keep the revs above that while thrashing around, it's a VERY fun car.

    edit: Yes, I own a honda, 02 si actually.

    Its also a 20,000 dollar car & a Civic why would you expect Evo type of numbers? Its made to be quick but not fast. Also good on gas.

    :werd: It has under 200hp and about 100lbs of torque in not that lightweight of a car. Why shouldn't it be blazing fast?


    :wtc: I feel bad for making fun of my own car, but it isn't fast, so why pretend?

    It's a piece of shit since the worthiness of all cars is solely based on straight line acceleration.



    Which is why a camaro is better than a 911
