Probably had enough money in that Civvy to make up the price difference.

my civic( stolen 4 days ago :( ) was doing 14.5 with just a B16a (SiR 1.6 liter vtec dohc japan) + exhaust ,headers, cam gear, CAI, fuel rail, fuel regulator,

as you see that is basic mods , for 5000$ canadian i was able to get :
-lower compression forged piston
-Jackson racing supercharger with smaller pulley kit.
-prelude fuel pump

(the mechanic at that place have a civic with that setup and the car run 13 flat all day)

all that including my civic and engine swap cost 12000 $ canadian. not bad for a low 13'* car.
but like i said earlier, ill take the GTO anytime.

dont think the honda will last as long as the GTO, "B" engine series rev to limiter at 8200 rpm or more 8400 for type-r, and i see some guys in the 10000 rpm , for sure theres a lot more wear than a 6k reving car.
i totally agree with you 100% but most people on here don't want to hear that so it is a lost cause. sorry to hear about your hatch by the way, thats terrible.

i agree too that its a lost cause in general
ricers ruin the reputation.

as for my hatch , the guy who stole it was pretty good , i had 1 switch that cut the fuel pump, alarm system (basic) and a switch to cut power, he found them all or dunno what he did.?!/ but the hatch is gone and probably someone have a brand new B16a in his car now.

the major problem of hondas... was the last one for me.

make me sad to see a civic beat a GTO

It has to be someone that knows you. I don't know a single person that would keep trying to start a Civic after they could not get it the first time.
