    Is there a post there that actually has the torque numbers, or a dyno graph?

    :jerkit: I call B.S. until that thing pulls a 13.5 second 1/4 mile like those numbers suggest.

    I saw a new one @ a honda dealer last week. The lines on that car are beautiful. I'd rock the shit out of one. :bigthumb:

    However, teh new optional rear spoiler is the epitome of rice :ugh2:

    It is possibly the best way to judge a car's power-to-weight ratio for acceleration.

    Nice car. Honda should be applauded for building a singular, purposeful, affordable sports car that looks good and is a blast to drive.

    I want to see how the bigger engine's dyno graph looks compared to the old one. Anyone?

    thats amazing, because there have been stock last gen ones that ran 13.2 :jerkit:

    yes, it would probably kill it in process, but it could run those times.

    Although i agree that it's more or less the ONLY standardized way to test a car, there's still vastly more to a car than straight line accelleration and hp/tq figures.

    Hard car to drive to the grocery store and back. Fantastic car to drive on a canyon road or road course.

    if you read on s2ki, they had dyno'd a 04 and it didn't have but 5 or so more power than the 03. but TQ did go up.
