Oh wow look another 100mph roll car. And yeah I'm sure with all that math factored in and those awesome aerodynamics that car would hit 195 easy peasy.

Am I seeing things, or is that motor sitting backwards. I've never seen a setup like that in a Civic. Why did he do it that way?

You're saying that car will hit 195? Well my car hit 184 in 5th on the dyno, and I still had 6th, so I guess I am now a 200mph car also!

Video is loading VERY slow for me. Is the exhaust closer to the fire wall vs being up near the bumper? If it is, that is a K series motor. Exhaust near the bumper is how the B and D motors are set up.

700whp and 2200lbs, yes I think it could. Its the most unsafe thing I've ever been in though lol

Not aerodynamic enough. I would buy you a very expensive german beer if it could.

Reason a 460rwhp z06 can hit 200mph and other higher hp cars can't. That civic would hit a speed and just run into a wall.

0.32 Ford Taurus 1992-1995[36]
0.32 Geo Metro (Sedan) 1995-1997[13]
0.32 Honda Accord (Coupe) 2002
0.32 Honda Civic (Coupe) 1992-1995[13]
0.32 Honda Civic (Hatchback DX) 1996-2000[37]
0.32 Honda Civic (Sedan EX) 1996-2000[38]
0.32 Honda Insight Hybrid [39] 2009-
0.32 Honda NSX 1990

Still doubtful as hell it could ever hit that speed.

Like I said, if it does, I owe you a very expensive 12% alc german beer.

2ss... Gm m6 transmissions have 2 over drive gears.. 5th and 6th.. Where as imports like Hondas only have one and that be the 6th gear.. The c6z can do 194mph n 5th but in 6th it might be lucky to hit 150mph.

It was retuned recently for more boost (not like I think that turbo has much more in it). But at the time that is correct

Im not trying to prove anything. Its an LSX forum lol. If I wanted to do that Id go post it on SVTP LOL

Hes just a friend of mine and its a good video with some good races. The RX7 is also a local here; Turbo LS1, made close to 600whp on 12lbs. It gives the civic a very good race nowadays...
