SOHC vs DOHC

My cousin has a 2002 Civic EX and those have SOHC engines. He went against a 1999 Civic SI that has a DOHC engine. The EX has intake and exhaust and the SI has the same thing. They raced and the EX won... is that right? I was with him when he raced it...

Hmmm, whoever was driving that Si had no clue what they were doing. The Si should stomp the ex, even with simple bolt ons. Anyone here think otherwise?

Yes i believe so too, i think is a matter of skill behind the wheels. The DOCH should have beaten the EX.

It may be all driver but what the hell was the Sidriver doing? Does he only have one arm and one leg?

If the driver can make up for 35 more hp then why even swap an engine? In this scenario the case was not that the SOHC driver was that good, it's that the Si driver was sleeping or had one hand in his ass.

Also remember the Si and Ex almost have the same torque, but the Si has more hp. The torque is what gets you going. But if someone doesn't know how to shift the Si correctly they will always loose.

You gotta drive it like you stole it.

Ya, and with a passenger in the car, The EX was a REAL underdog. With hondas, if they weigh about the same, the hp of the DOHC really dominates.

maybe the Si driver was using the patented Upside-down-sunvisor-technique of pushing the clutch in a little and letting it back out a few times in each gear so "it will rev faster, giving more horsepower".

Hahahahaha

That's about as smart as racing with your trunk open to act like a spoiler. Christ, some people are so stupid, they should have been sterilized at birth.

Or at least drive it like you own it. Sounds like he drove it like it was his b/f's car.

My Old 95 SOHC use to spank '00 Si DOHC Civics easily. Even GSX's. I wouldn't under estimate the SOHC.
