He would have had to swap a guage cluster in. Either he has something under the hood that powerful or he just has the cluster.

well, are you saying the tach didn't redline until 9000? ...or it went up to 9000 at the top?...

My LX tach goes to 8000... but we all know where redline is.

yeah thats what i mean.. it redline at 9 unlike other civic redline at 8

The only stock civics that come anywhere close to that are the Type R's which we unfortunately do not have for sale in the United States. The only way there would be a Civic Type R here is if it was specially imported. Are you sure the redline is at 9000 rpm? The US doesn't have a civic that redlines at 9000 rpm.

Well you've stumped me pretty bad. There is no dx or lx engine in the 92-95 model that goes to 9000 rpm. It must be something imported. If you find out let me know, because I am totally clueless as to what it is now:eek:

Don't the spoon gauge cluster have a tach that go up to 9K?.....of course i doubt both of those cars had spoon gauges....
at 1st i thought its was an aftermarket gauge, although they look OEM, at 2nd dealer i saw another one with 9K RPM. i was very surprised... and both of them was auto

Well LX_Coupe has obviously been in the scene for long enough that he knows where the redline on the gauges begins. The Accord gauges are basically the same. And yea, when you put it into the red that can cause problems unless you have beefed up the bottom end. So we still haven't solved this mystery.
