i was out driving my accord v6 6speed, and me my friend (04 rsx's hondata, cai) and my other buddy (r32 chipped,cai) went from a roll of about 40 the r32 did 3 honks and me and the r32 are side by side the rsx is inching in front of us the whole time! what i dont understand is how a bone stock accord that is supposed to run 14.5 or so kept up w/ my friends r32 that ran a 13.5 a few nights earlier at capitol raceway in md. i just thought that was odd mabye all its got is off the line cause of all wheel drive! but oh well it was fun just cant wait to get my celica back on the east coast

:werd: The R32 is SAID to run a low 14 but hardly ANYONE is in the high 14's. I doubt a chip and CAI would knock off 1.5 seconds.

:werd: 13's for a R32 should be no problem with the mods done to it. So the RSX-S beat both of ya'll?

right but that tub of lard called an sti is claimed to run low 13's stock. BTW people said 13.7 was impossible for a celica and now look.

I've got several vids of 6 spd gt-s running 15.9 - 16 second 1/4 mile times out here. It MUST be a high 15 second car incapable of anything faster.

your car has more than 230 HP though. We all kno wthe SRT4 Is very under rated.

mike dude.. i like you.. dont make me hate you, the STi has more power, more torque weighs a bit less than the R32 (someone correct me if im wrong), and a more advanced AWD system, the STi has even run high high 12's stock

230hp is what you're gettin at the wheels buddy, SRT4s are WAAAAY underrated, at Boost Solutions their STOCK srt4 dynoed at 236 FWHP

in other words... a chip cant do much, neither can an intake, at BEST stock the R32 will run low 14's, at best with in an intake of some sort and assuming this "chip" actualy makes power.. high high 13's with a nice solid errorless run

btw, i was thinking.. ive never seen an intake do what my intake did on my celica in any other car.. period

Just pondering here, but I'm wondering if maybe 40mph wasn't just a bad spot for the R32 to start - maybe just a tad too high to stay in gear so he wound up too low in his powerband and lugged it.... Just a thought. AWD suffers a big at higher speeds and the accord should do best at higher speeds plus with a 6spd he was probably able to take better advantage of gearing.

Or the guy in the R32 was blowing smoke up yer keister about the 13.5 (probably most likely)

I had read the weight was in the 3800 area. Either way, the car will not make up those 60 HP with an intake and a chip.
