a person i know who used to be my friend until i bought my new car (dont ask why he turned on me when i got it, proves he wasnt a mate in the first place!!) he owns a 1998 civic hatch CXI with this motor..
Model: 1996-up Civic CX/DX/LX
Specs.: 1590cc, 16 valve SOHC, 9.4:1 compression
Power: 106 bhp @ 6,200 rpm
Torque: 103 ft.-lbs. @ 4,500 rpm
Redline: 7,100 rpm
considering they weigh probly just short of 1 tonne, would you think my fiesta would thrash it? im guessing if both cars were stock then id trash no doubt, but he has headers,2.5in cat, 2in pipe off the cat then goes to 2 1/4 for rest of the exhaust (sounds like bollocks) i think duratec would give me an advantage...
what do you guys think??????? :)
wouldnt mind thrashing his car one day (ehm no mr police officer i mean on a track, not street
