yeah it was decent, I am kinda pissed that the 2 cars they showed the most of had eingine swaps. WTF its about the new Si. One of the swaps was completly pointless a rsx eingine in a new si for a whapping 3 hp gain..........

i normally watch that show on a weekly basis but I had to fire up the dvd recorder and recorded that one :thumbup:

the reason why I think they swapped the engine is because the rsx engine(01-03) has more aftermarket support than the one on the SI, so they were able to find more parts for what they wanted to do :what:

I was thinking the same thing, they prolly wanted to take advantage of the free advertisment, I understand hasport being that that is what they do, but come on its about the new Si and the new si's features not hondas other shit. O well

What the fuck does he mean, "Once upon a time the civic was the car on the tuner scene. It was fast, nimble, affordable and most importantly, supremely customizable" IT STILL IS MOTHERFUCKER. This balding white motherfucker needs to get shot. Man, if I seen this foO in public I would piece his ass up and ass rape him. Fuck that piece of shit! "It was fast" this bitch needs to die :twisted: FUCK THE VID, I'm not even gonna watch the rest.

The hosts on speed don't know shit most of the time. They just read what the cue card tells them to. I remember this one dumb chick at sema say, "Look at how huge the tires on this truck are and they are even equipped with bed lock tires."

yeah i'm with you on that one. i can understand a 2.4ltr swap but swapping pratically the same motor was just fuqin' ghey. all-in-all it was a good show...and it makes me wanna dump my EM2 for a new Si. Too bad I'm upside down, maybe I'll wait a year or so.

That guy in the beginning is retarted...But it did say he was a trans am champion or something so that makes sense.

He is right in 2001 honda went a different way with the civic. They dumped the wishbone suspension in favor of a McPhearson system to give the driver and passenger more leg room. They abandoned traditional vtec in favor of vtec-e tuning for economy rather than performance. The 7th gen is very fun to drive, but Honda was trying to attract many different types of buyers, not just the young tuner segment. However in doing this they almost abandoned the tuner segment entirely. They gave us the EP3....big whoop. The EP3 was just a parody of the 4th gen hatches that brought the Si badge to glory. Sure it was a Hatch, a big heavy one that only rev's to 6800 rpm....WTF a DOHC that only revs to 6800, what the hell is that. A lot of EP3 owners head swap to get the rpm's they want. So yeah other companies crept in on the Civic's turf, mainily in my opinion Scion.

Anyway, I know what you mean also with the thousands and thousands of modded out civics allready on the street and the huge aftermarket that most of us have (7th gen is finally catching up... :woot: ) So get past that statement and watch the entire video, it's pretty good complete with drag race in the end.

why cause of its way cool electric damping system and ghey body kit :what: . All the cars at the end of the video reflect a type of styling that died on the same day vin diesel said that shit about the " stand alone fuel management system"

i didnt say i liked the tein car, it would most likely be faster becase it was t/c and the others were n/a lightened and s/c. judging by the size of the intercooler, the tein car must've had a good sized turbo sittin under the hood...unless tein are a bunch of dumbass and put a big intercooler just for styling...inwhich they loose all their homie points.

overall gains aren;t as important as the power curve. of course if they were practicly the same then yeah, thats stupid.

the vid was decent, i am with everyone else about the host. I think that they should have gotten some real enthousiest in there and showed him how to drive that thing. I am so ready to trade in my ej8 for one of those. I think that i am getting one once i get to japan.
