Yeah theres no way a stock lsvtec is running those times.. and unless you know how to put everything together your going to pay for labor.takendaily said:It might not just be a stock ls vtec?
Check this page out and look at the "frankenstein" near the bottom of the page.
its frankenstien=built motor.. car is probably light as shit alsoNoRice4u2Day said:what are they doing to the lsvtec then?!?! the vid was found on trekmek.com under honda stuff... its a crvtec then.. its 2.0 but how?!?! does it run a 12.6?
91 hatches are LIGHT. You know how a lot of drag racers like to use EG's because they are substantially lighter than EK's? Well, the 91's are in that realm.NoRice4u2Day said:i saw a vid of a 91 civic hatchback lsvtec 2.0 and it ran a 12.6... thats hella fast for a non turboed civic... anyone know anytihng about what he did? at hdmmotorsports.com his name is hector. what whp do you think hes putting at the wheels?
HondaGuyEli said:2.0 LS/VTEC running those kinda times. Here's my guess. 2.0 Stroker kit. Very High Compression Pistons, Port and Polished Head, Milled Head for raised compression, Aggressive Cams, Gutted 4th gen hatch.
Figure if the car weighs about 2,000lbs with the driver you need approx. 260hp to run a 12.6
A 2.0 LS/VTEC with compression similar to a B16a would already put you right up around 200hp, with even higher compression, a race port and polish, some good cams, and good tuning, it's very feasable.
like he said, simple is sumtimes better. its probly gutted to the core, which puts it probly around 1800 lbs or so with driver (guestimating here), so i dont think it would need 230hp. and remember, the lsvtecs are pretty torquey and that coupled with the closely geared b16 tranny should yield pretty quick 1/4 mile times. oh, and i bet it has slicks and a good driverHondaGuyEli said:1.8 liter??? Everyone was saying it's a 2.0. Also I don't see those specs adding up to the type of power needed to pull a 4th gen hatch down the strip in 12.6 seconds.
