Nearly bought myself a mid-life crisis car the other day but decided that my life wouldn't have lasted long if I had taken it home. Mentioned it to the Mrs and got the response "If you wanted it why didn't you get it?". Can't win sometimes.
Haha my FTO was cheap as chips, as it was ready for the graveyard when I got it. Now it's different though had a lot done too it.
@glen I know what you mean, it's hard to control yourself in cars like this make you want to drive like a total nutcase. When the high rpm mivec roarrr kicks in you only think YESSSSS GO FASTERRRRRR RED LIGHT FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU. Adrenaline, dangerous at times :/
@Andy I love that civic, seems like your is a Type-R? (red emblem). Those are really fast as well, engine technique (VTEC) is similar to my FTO's MIVEC.
It's a family car until you hit a certain RPM and the beast is unchained roooaaaaarrrrrrrrrr
@Nimma yes its s type R like you say when you hit that point on the rpm gauge (On mine 5200rpm) the VTEC cuts in and holy shit batman....
I have slight engine mods to it so I've got about 210BHP don't sound much but I've left an Audi RS4 in the dust :arg:
Sweet. I've done some small mods as well but together they make quite a difference.
open-air filter, iridium sparks, de-catted and sports muffler, shortened belt (without aircon) added nearly 35 HP to the 200 it had originally.
the de-catt is the best though. When I hit the throttle a little deeper you see people jumping up to see what's coming at them It's a huge sound boost in the higher RPM range while it didn't make much difference while idle or low rpm.
