And yet a full second SLOWER than other Bonnies on this forum, with alot more money poured into yours. I know YOU didn't pay for the mods, you stole that thing.
anther thing beat me with a motor i wont spry promise bet you cant!!! ditch the supercharger
Dude, I'm not flaming you at all! I have some friends with some pretty tight Hondas. The ONLY thing I was saying is that it'* much cheaper to mod an L67 with higher gains than the same money in a VTECH. It'* pretty much down the middle. You can get even better gains out of a V8, but at the cost of gas mileage. I gotta hand it to the Japanese, they made a good name for themselves in reliability.

And that is exactly the point. We are not a "10 second car" forum. We are owners of luxary performance sedans. It just so happens that our cars can become 10-12 second cars. Our view of cheap 4 banger imports is not likely to be high even if they could be fast.

i'm not trying to flame either, i'm just saying i'd personally like a v6 with its displacement, and much higher torque, and power thats easy to get. It is a fast car, but i saw a 13 second honda two nights ago....

Well just ignore most of the Arseholes! That'* what I do! LOL
Some will biotch because you're talking about a car model other than a Bonneville here. That was to be expected wasn't it? Also some here don't know their arse from a hole in the ground when it comes to Sport Compacts too.
As for advantages/disadvantages, well all cars have them, some like the Honda just get less "luxury" & more "MPG" than most, to each his own.

I don't see why either. I say as long as you got a car, your finr. Some ppl don't even get that luxury. My moms maxima is no where near the bonneville and I guess the reason nobody say anything to me about that car is because it isn't mine. If it was oh well. I mean why criticize anyway? Its not like joe don't have a bonneville or never owned one.

Too true!! I think the only issue is that if F&F had used Bonnie'* instead of imports with the subsequent crowd of wannabe kids following that and causing accidents and driving erratically, it'd be different. Well, for me anyway. It has become quite cliche, and, yes, we are guilty of stereotyping. So sue me. :P

No, don't sue me. I have no money!!
