    another civic story, continued

    so i found out his mods, all motor k24block with k20 heads.

    and we raced to 60 from a stoplight. off the line he pulled away, and pulled all the way to 60, flashers flashing. he but about a car and a half on me. so wtf, i flew buy with the flashers on, why not.

    oh yea, one important detail, i was in a 96 oldsmobile 88, a granny car, really, i bought it from my grandma for a thousand bucks, pretty comfy, thick foam seats, huge trunk, but thats besides the point.

    i havnt run the olds at the track, but on the stretch of road where we run at i ran about 18 seconds with 8 or 9 seconds to 60.

    when we got back to work he was talking trash that he beat a OLDSMOBILE in a drag race. everyone who has seen the olds just started laughing.

    i did kinda lie to him though, i said the ta is only a little faster than the olds, technically it is only a little faster, only 5-6 seconds faster in the quarter, i can hold my breath for that long.

    Nice kill.

    Ricers are so damn stupid. Why would you waste your money on a Honda lol.

    I'm assuming this motor is swapped into the Civic and not a newer Si with a k-series?? From what I understand, you're looking at around $6K just to drop one in an older style Civic. Thats a lot of money for slow, gutless car.

    Not the best platform money wise. You have to spend alot to make them fast. You might as well start with something fast already.

    That is one sorry Honda then. If he is that slow, you should not waste your gas with your LS1 car. Any K series swap that's running half decent in a lighter chassis should be a easy 12-13s car depending on mods and tire.

    he said he also wants to race me in his syclone. ive seen him drive it, no idea of any mods, but i know it has a turbo. if memory serves the syclone was a pretty quick truck. it should be fun.

    Syclones have a turbocharged 4.3L V6 that put out 280hp/350tq stock. They are kind of rare, and I've only seen a few of them. However, since they are AWD and A4 transmission, they can easily get into the 13s bone stock. Several of the car review magazines back in the day were able to achieve sub 5 second 0-60 times. In stock form however, they don't trap that high in the 1/4, making their impressive times with the launch. You should be able to get him in a LS1 car if he's mostly stock.

    BTW, these are sweet trucks:

    Yes a SUV from 1992, 18 years old. Even modern SUVs have a hard time pulling that off.

    I love the Syclone, and plan on adding one to my garage in the future. I believe they could run 0-60 in 4.6 bone stock. Don't remember 1/4 mile times, but I think it should put up a decent fight against an LS1.

    stock for stock ls1 f-body would still win in 1/4mile and trap speed. But they were turbo which means with bolt ons and tuning power was easily gained.
