Sorry, I just happen to be a big fan of Korean cars, I admit it.

Looks to be a little slower than my old CRX. Not bad.

You know the 1/4 by chance?

What still impresses me to this day, while people complain about reliability of them still to this day, is that of any company you can think of, the one least likely to make a powerful 4 cyl, GM, and not only GM, but to be more specific, OLDSMOBILE, came out with a 190hp N/A 2.3L 4 cyl in '91. I mean for Oldsmobile, and for being 1991, 190hp from a 2.3 isn't too bad. I am not a big fan of Quad 4'*, but the output still impresses me.

And then they shoved it into little cars like a Cutlass Calais and threw a 3.9x:1 geared 5 speed in it and had 14 second cars that were cheap, practical, and got good mileage.

Honda wasn't on the ball with a power NA 4 banger til 93, with the 200 hp 2.2 liter (For reference, the 2.3 that came in preludes before only made 160 horsepower) so the Quad 4 impresses this Honda guy

Cams, ported and polished head, ported intake manifold and TB, 4-2-1 header, 2.5" catback exhaust are the common mods for the spectras and elantras. They can get surprisingly quick.
