If it's a non-vtec teg...then with just those mods, you have a good chance.
Otherwise if it's gsr ,all you'll see is his rear end

The Honda folks know there stuff. They have done alot with small bore engines ( ever notice the size of there stock exhaust dia.? what is that 3/4"?) Motorcycles, do I need to mention that? And if your a Harly fan Shut the [email protected]^* up!!!!!!. But the Zetec has them shakeing in there booots. Their scrambling to figure out what makes the focus hot! FOCUS(stock, 1 7/8"exhaust dia.).We've got much more room for improvement! Im a guy who would have never bought a Ford (oh oh). Ive been Driving IPD euqiped Volvo's(interesting Volvo now owned by Ford) and riding BMW motorcycles for years. To put it simply im imprtessed with my ZX3!!!!!!!!!! Good bang for the buck!!!!!!!

seriously?


mod for mod just about any Integra is going to be a bit faster. as said before, especially a GS-R. you could do a bunch of bolt-ons and lose to a good driver in a stock GS-R.

don't underestimate the non-VTEC Integras. they can get a set of Crower cams just as easily as we can.

not gettin pissy, just telling it how it is...

The BASE Integra RS is pretty much a wash with the ZX-3. But I'd have to give the nod to the integra, just because I don't think stock for stock, it's going to run out of breath past 5500 RPM's like the ZX-3 does.

It would be close, however UltegraSTI said it best... it's just wise to not even engage in those types of discussions. It's that kind of talk that really what gives the JDM boys a bad rap.

i've raced a integra (90-93 model), All i got is exaust, and the guy had at least intake and exaust, we raced 3x and it's a driver's race, whoever get's the better launch will win the battle.

I should have cleared it up that my theory stands for good condition Integras. Obviously, 90-93 'tegs have a bit of age on our Focus'. That 'teg you ran could have 100+k on his odometer.

Also, don't let the Honda guys fool you... some of them just can't drive. (especially if they have Altezzas!!!
)

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">You are correct. The 'tegs can redline without worrying about hitting a fuel cutoff!!!

And when we start swaping the Zetec out for the Duratec.....


I have two Honda buddies at work. They've been watching the Duratec story very close with me. Both are looking for new cars. Both are looking at a Focus with the 2.3.

This engine won't run out of breath at 5500.


This motor IS the icing on our cake.

i think for top end power, the focus has got it definitely or especially after 3rd gear and thats it civic killed. of course some hatchbacks are quick light to light, but take it down the highway and you'll kill them easily...
