My buddy just got a 2003 Civic SI, I gotta say, that car is pretty fast. We raced and we were dead even through second gear, but after that he pulled away from me. We both have AEM CAI's. The Civic has nice low end tq, right around 2 grand it kicks in. It didnt handle as good as the focus. But it still is a very quick car. I have to go to work on the old Zetec so I can keep up with him

Seriously, this racing crap is getting old. I hate street racing too, I've never even tried to. It just is annoying when someone posts about a stupid race they did and everyone is like "so you were at the track right??" Yea, right, what are the chances that they would go to the track. I'd say quite slim. FocalJet should just ban all racing stories, or have a forum JUST for TRACK races. If you don't post the track, it gets deleted. It's just annoying seeing all these stupid threads all the time.

Sorry, We werent street racing, we were racing at the air port. Every weekend, they open up the air port and you pay $10 to race, they have cops mark off the 1/4 mile and radar you and let you know how fast you were going. So take it easy

Where in WI do they do that? That'd be awesome!

My friend has an 02 Si. I like it, but he's had a lot of problems with it, actually. It's getting a new transmission as we speak. It also has been burning oil!
. However, I'm pretty sure he got a lemon as I haven't heard many horror stories about the new Si.

My friend have a new SI w/ sportline and my ZX3 have cat-back/UPD/Iceman/KW. And we switch car all the time. According to my butt dyno, the SI w/ 160hp don't feel much faster than my car. Plus Focus handle alot better. However SI's interior is ALOT better, especially the seat.
