Yeah I know of that too. D/I is a good ingredient that Honda seems to not want anything to do with. I think they should've made the K24 D/I in the Civic Si. It would probably make 220-225hp/190tq.

Oh I know that displacement plays a part. That's why I was using a 2L vs 2L for the most part argument. My RSX felt way more anemic under 3500 rpms.

Also I agree this car is a 9/10 for me also. I...

When I see an Italian exotic I never grow tired of seeing one. They just stand out from everything else. But for me Muscle cars have never had that feel on me. I see them as 2 door boxy GT's and...

In America an exotic car must have exotic styling also. A Mustang being a exotic in France or any place in this world is laughable. I can understand the Ford GT mid engine car.
