So it takes a stripped interior, lightened, and engine swapped Honda to outrun s most likely totally STOCK domestic? Makes sense.

Jomary Alejo power to weight ratio muscle cars on the street weigh as much as a fucking boat compared to a stripped civic that can get to around 2300 with driver with out cutting anything still stock chassis compared to a 4K lbs car with a v8

Haha exactly, those shifty v8s from the 90s were crazy slow. IF that firebird was a v8 it was only 275hp, so like 220 to the wheels vs a gutted civic with a 220hp engine. That's when the power to weight ratio comes in. It that civic isn't beating a stock v8 car that's been made in prob a decade. Stock v8 cars are averaging 4-5s 0-60 times and high 11s-12s quarter mile. Just full bolt on your hitting mid 450s-500 hp lol. You'll have to come with a lot more then a gutted shitbox and stock k20

blah blah blah domestic. blah blah blah import.  The fact is. The engine in the Civic is half (or even less) the size of the other engines, and it just proved Honda's point. You don't need an engine the size of the Moon to have fun. YES, the Supra is a hell of a car and the 2JZ a monster, and YES this supra was probably bone stock.  and YES a V8 can be built to produce a LOT of power. But the thing is... He made fun of the little Honda, and he got raped. When you are out there is the streets, it doesn't matter what engine you have or the weight of your chassis. If you challenge someone and you lose, that's it. You LOST. Excuses are for pussies.  PS. I am not implying that the Civic is a Sports car, because it's not. And I am not implying that the K20A is the best base to build a race engine. But both the Civic and the VTEC engine, proved that they can endure the battle among kings. You damn wrong if you think they got no game...
