Default Teheh...

'bout a week after I bought my tC, was out with friends, FULL car. Pulled up to a stoplight and a guy in a blacked out Civic Si pulled up. We dragged out of the light, ended up passing him real fast. Stupid started grinding his gears when he hit fourth...

hehe si's are weak-sauce. Prepare to be flamed by the locals however, most do not condone street racing.

An Si will take any N/A tC any day. Assuming they know how to drive. I wouldn't be too excited about it. You got lucky.

Pretty sure they have the same horsepower... maybe a little lighter.

The Si is stock with 201 hp, my tC- I'm not exactly sure what it has. Couldn't be too much less. Its certainly not stock. Either way, I do agree that most of it was just how to drive, and, as evidenced by his gear grinding, he didn't know how to drive.

I guess we should find out the year. While the new Si's have 201 HP, only last year they had 161, same as the tC. And they max torque at the same RPM as us as well. The new one is much faster, and nicer i might add

i thought they all came out with almost 200 about 198 hp starting 2006? 161hp are the regular civics hence we can spank those but the Si i don't think so...with LSD too stock? c'mon...

200HP on a 2.0L non-supercharged engine? Im not too familair with engine sizes but i dont think that is correct.

Plus regular civics get 140 HP i believe.
