Default alrighty then!

all right all right! maybe i was too excited to realize my speed...actually, it was more like an 8th of a mile...i dunno...i wasn't measuring...but it was city...so i couldn't go too crazy....i have no idea what year this accord was...but it was two door...split exhaust...and definitely stick...you know...."wirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....clumph........ ..wirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....clumph.......wirrrrrrrrr rrrr.....etc. front end going up and down in manual shift fashion..........i LOVE how this buick shifts from first to second....it seems as though there is ZERO loss between those two gears...the girl (her name is sabrina ) actually leaps when she shifts into second...jerking my head back slightly no matter how hard i try to keep it from doing so...i like that feeling...i also like not being able to lean forward when i punch it at around 30 mph!!!! i am nearly plastered to my leather...strange in such an old persons vehicle. anyone think i could get the beast to around 240 HP n/a? chip, CAI, exhaust, plugs, wires, ???? she'* in the shop right now getting new monroe sensa trac struts! yay!

Hmm..I was looking at a comparo 'twixt a Honda Sumthin and a Nissan Thingy, and the Honda won it because of the 9000 RPM redline...I'm more than sure it wasn't an Accord...just can't remember what it was...

My Husqvarna R265 reved at 11,000 rpm! Does that make it better than both the Honda Sumthin and the Nissan Thingy?

Dooood...re-read it...it outperformed the Nissan for only that fact...you had to see the rest of the specs on them both...and, no, I'm not going to go into detail...I'd say fill in the rest, but it looks like you tried that already...

:P

More than likely it was the Honda S2000 & the Nissan 350z. Im pretty sure that the S2000 redlines at the or 10k. Not to sure about the 350Z didnt really look at the gauges when I was checking it out.
