    Honda civic ek9 type r

    Just had a shot of my mates civic type r ek9(on an r reg),it is a jdm import with the 1.6 engine,it also has an lsd,wasn't blown away by the performance,gutless below 6000rpm,but my mate told me to rev it harder(redlines at 9500rpm),felt quickish then,but the noise when it goes on cam is awesome and boy does it handle on the bends,understeers when you lift off,but stay on the power instead of backing off(which i am used to doing in my gsi) and it corners like f**k,my gsi would beat it in a straight line,but on the corners i doubt i could keep with it and the reccaro seats are so comfy,all in all a nice wee car
    197.2 h.p and 230lbs,not bad for standard

    Going from stock figures I don't see why not. Supposedly 0-60 in circa 7 secs and im guessing due to the smaller engine capacity the top end will be lower than the Gsi. Would love a car that revs close to 10k though

    The VXR would be more of a competitor for the EK9 than the GSi in a straight line. These lil buggers are quick.

    That 5.7 seconds was recorded in a pretty much stripped out version i.e no recaros and no trim inside. A normal one will be 6.5-7. And they are limited to 112mph
