Well I was coming home from work today and stopped at a red light...A civic pulls up next to me, the driver [young asian kid around 16] rolled down his window (I did the same) and he was asking me "howmuch" did that Camry run you???...I was like 20g's...He laughed and revved at me...So when the light turned green we hit it...He pulled on me by about a car and I heard something go BOOOOOM...then it got all smoky...All I know is that it wasnt my car...His car slowed down dramatically to a stop...I cruised passed him and then I made a U turn and came by to see what happened...He had just blown his older brothers freshly swapped h22 (prelude) motor...I talked with him for a bit and he was so mad and scared so I left the sceen...I lost the race but didnt lose the motor...

He thought you were driving a camry? you were in your tC right? ummm...[/b]
I think the guy in the civic was actually insulting him. Because you know, the tC and the 4cyl. Camry share the same engine. Of course the tC's is geared much more aggresively :]

Yeah this kid came at me in a cocky way...I was tired coming home from work...He had no right to just revv at me...

About him calling me a camry, he was insulting me...He won the race but lost his license or trust form his brother I bet...

He was claiming the car was capable of mid to high 13's (Im sure it "was" the way he took off on me) but I guess he wont get a chance to run it with that motor anyway...I know he blew his motor maybe by overevving and trying to powershift, tiz what he told me....

That is an awesome story. i wish i could have seen the look on his face. damn, i wish there was a video of it. oh well. this story reminds me of an old saying. he may have won the battle but cleary he lost the war, and by war i mean his freshly swapped engine hahahaha....

This kid was only about 16 yrs old...I didnt want to come back and insult him or anything also because he was already in enough trouble as is...I wanted the cops to get there asap to see what would've happened and the see him get into some trouble but hey, I was the one who raced him so maybe some people couldve been pointing fingers saying who he raced...This kid deserved what happened to him...

h22a=$2600 motor w/tranny (average)
custom mounts=$500(estimate)

so you go and blow 3k just like that...........
