^ don't believe her, i'd have to see that.

I've seen a few with custom turbo's reach 150-160whp, but the most common high whp number is around 130-140whp.

400 seems like alot for the engine... Without a punch that would be around 260hp per liter?
More than i recall seeing except for maybe a Supra TT. And needless to say that engine is setup a little different.
I could imagine MAYBE 200 crankshaft.

Oh and as far as smoking **** goes... You picked the wrong car. Most any civic, accord, etc. with a CAI, chip, and exhaust will easily pull away from most NA Xb's.

well its like this i pull on V6's and some V8's on the 1/8th mile track but they would always catch me 1 second away from the finish line...every one at the track who were running boost were telling me to boost my box...if boost could improve my time by 2 secs which i know it will... i would be able to pull on those V6's with ease and V8's i would give em a bigger challenge...Now about them civics,,, yes they suck but if you fully build an LS motor/ b18 motor they will always pull on any xb/xa motor...oh and remeber if you dont know how to drive and put your box to the max you wont go anywhere:D

Coming from honda, i defend honda much of the time because your average civic cant speak for all honda owners. However, to tell someone you picked the wrong car is definitely out of the question. This is what people said for a long time about fwd cars, this is what people said about the honda hatchback when people started fooling around with those. People say too much without understanding and seeing the full spectrum.

I was dyond at 96whp, i've pulled on several cars with an estimate of 120-130whp. How? Power to weight, even owning an automatic this advantage is key. You speak of accords. A 4cyl accord (sedan) an xb with i/h/e and a few other things could definitely beat one. Not speaking about new ones.

Around the corners, well lets just say i've won 6 out of 8 autocross events last year in my class. So to say the xb is the wrong car to pick, disagree!

No one take my post personally, just trying to shed truth to this before people start going off on things.

mini cooper? musta not been a S. my friend has a S and its pretty quick in stock trim. if its a non S auto then yes its possible..my female friend has that and its slowwwwww the car is literally one gear lol

as far as civics go it jsut depends on what model...ex lx dx those are easy to beat anything made after 99 w/ a SI on it no way unless the drivers an idiot =P

Here is where I am coming from. I know FWD cars can be quick. I formerly drove a taurus SHO with 235 fwhp.
Now I realized that for true speed I need to stick to my bike.
Anytime a 1/4 is run in over 15 seconds the vehicle cannot be considered fast or quick. I have driven incredibly fast cars, besides my 10sec. quarter mile bike I have driven 500hp malibus, 800hp trans ams, among other things.
I will admit the civic and accord comment was a little bit of a stretch, but if you take a NEW civic or NEW accord, stock against stock, they beat the xb.
If you do the same mods to each one, they beat the Xb. Why? Because gains realized will be bigger with more displacement.
I am not saying there are not Xb's out there that can beat civic's, accords, etc.. I am just saying stock for stock probably not.
And with the "picked the wrong car comment".. I meant the Xb was not built to go fast, it was built to be personalized and customized.
Sorry if I offended anyone....

Boxes are all about style. They arent race cars. It would take an engine swap to make them run with well tuned cars (as long as the dude can drive lol) but I am fine with the power of mine. I pass them when they stop for gas lol.

Wow. Considering it has 50-60 more hp than the Xb. And does 0-60 in sub 7 seconds. you must have had a good launch. LMAO.

I do believe that's the highest HP xB right now. Never seen it in person, just magazine pics but I'd love to see it scoot down the 1320.

As far as dragging the xB...I guess if you're just looking to smoke most imports on the street, the new ZPI turbo kit would be worth looking into, but still, a decently modded B or H series civic would be tough to walk.

And forget about trying to run against most V8s. LS1/LS6 Chevy's are fast right out of the box and downright nasty with some tinkering:eek: :D

I see your point a little more clear now. :D My previous gs-r ran low 13's high 12's. But like i said earlier, the xb's true strength is cornering. 120-130whp is all we need to have a very quick daily driver.

Stock for stock, really anything honda has put out in terms of low trim (ex models) above 2001 we can't beat. Honda has always known performance and know what they are doing. Something toyota is lacking imo.
