Chips do little if anything to a SI with bolt-ons. He probably got it off eBay.

If you're 6spd, I don't see why you can't take him.

u should be able to take it. Si's are slow. They're only fast is SC or Turbo'd. This one guy's 99 SI had i/h/e, short shifter, VTEC controller, Fuel pressure reg. and still lost to a 95 GSR with i/e

dunn what happened there..but the GSR's 3rd just pulled the SI slowly..

civic = economy car SI = Slow imports! J/k i have seen them run 15.7 stock and one wit basic bolt-ons run a 15.3! It also depends on wat kind of tires u guys are running! If he has some drag radials you might be in trouble or vice versa! This should be a good run! BTW keep it safe and take this to the track! We dont need no more street races its just simply not worth it!

I went up against a 99-00 si with intake, cams, headers and i was bone stock and still pulled on him hard in 3rd and 4th. I actually got a better run outta brand new si with i/e this past weekend. Still no match for the GTS tho.

Nice to see that at least someone sort of remembered me. LOL

But FYI, I ran 14.67 #93.7mph, not just 14.9. And yeah I only had boltons.

Remember that not all Sis are slow.

dang so w/ i/h/e u ran [email protected]? thats awesome man, it truly is.. some people w/ GTS and i/h/e are still in the 15's :) then considering the GTS has about 20 more hp than the SI (and they weigh about the same???) then you are an awesome driver

Yeah...I noticed all Hondas are virtually impossible to pull on when they have enough stickers. For some reason Honda owners are the only ones that have realized how to unlock all the hidden power. Maybe I should go get some stickers for my Celi...and maybe get "Celica" printed in that "old tyme" font on my back window. Couple that with the tackiest fin I can find...and I'll bet I'd rip the track up HARD. Keep up the good work Honda owners...because you're making me look extra good.

why is it that if someone mentions a honda someone has to come with this **** tossing attitude!!!
the celi will probably beat the si!!! but the si will probably give it a good run for it

Go look around this Site............You will find that more then half of the Celicas here are Sticker Monsters..............Back off the Hondas..............Laugh at people not cars.

A GT-S would hand a SI its ass if they were both stock. Do you know how to read?? Read what the guy posted. I think it will be drivers race. BTW Mica your car looks sick
