The mirage cyborg would absolutely smash this piece of trash. They have got the times completely mixed up.

135mph optimistic? Drive one...I had an EG5 with D16z6 (the 125bhp engine) with cold air intake, decat and s/s exhaust, did 132,5mph.

And I still don't understand why acceleration is still at 8.4s. I know now the data on here is not reliable...

i got a d16y7 engined civic, n the speedo has read 135 goin down a hill, sat nav clock the same speed as 127, the error gets greater as the speed gets higher, its only accurate at about 30mph, under read before that and severely over reads above it, like 75mph on speedo is only just 70 realistically

Almost all cars have "optimistic" speedometers (for safety purposes i guess...). Reading 140 mph on a dial means that the car is doing 135 if not less.

I highly doubt that. 135 mph for this car is already optimistic.

Power for the DOHC VTEC is 160hp with a 0-100 speed of 7,2 or 7,3. But no way 8,4, thats for the 125hp SOHC VTEC engine.

and the 1.6 DOHC VTEC (also known as VT or VTI

The DOHC VTEC euro spec 2 variations:
the B16A1 110kw/150hp@7600! and 144nm@7100RPM
(the B16A1 is only used in civic/CRX 4th gen)
the B16A2 114kw/160hp@7600RPM! and 150nm@5700RPM

the SOHC VTEC has also 2 engine types:
the D16Z6 92kw/125hp@ 6500RPM and 142nm@5200RPM
the D16Y7 92kw/125hp@ 6500RPM and 142NM@5300RPM
this last engine is used a lot in the Del Sol, and the civic coupé's
