    I see everything from 14.8 to 15.2. It's hard to believe it's not a mid-high 14 second car.

    Why should it ve a mid 14 seconds car? It’s 205 hp only.

    Best i have seen from car magazine is 14.8.
    Other than that, from non professional driver i think i have seen 14.6 but I can’t confirm the conditions

    Best I've seen is 14.5, worst I've seen is 15.2. So many things is so dependent on it though, from driver skill, temperature, elevation, road/track prep, TC fully disabled or not etc..

    14.8 is respectable. With a tune that will get much better. 15.2 is taking it back to 90s..lol
    I also read that at least one source pulled a slightly better time with the coupe. Is that possible? I'm only seeing like a 20lb weight difference between the two.

    Not that I think it matters that much, but since you mentioned it, I believe the consensus around here is that Honda underrated this engine and better estimates from people running stock on dynos are around 230hp.

    What efficiency factor are you using to get to 230 at the flywheel?

    15% drive-train loss seems to be the common estimate

    Edit: Here's an example of a stock on dyno by MAPerformance

    it definitely does not feel like a 230 hp car. thats nore like what a gti feels like.

    our Si's feel rather slow stock. it feels like 205 hp or about 180 to the wheels.

    Having owned my Si for over a year it’s a great car, love it. It’s not a 1/4 mile car not by the longest stretch of the imagination, and treating it as such, replacing original parts, etc and drag racing it will only lead to you having a car that either blows up or runs like shit. Buy a Mustang GT with a blower

    Here are 2 vids of the Si running through the 1/4 mile in 14.5 seconds bone stock.




    Its a guy from this forum, his name is Six Civic on Youtube.

    Apologies for the tunes on that dashcam video, probably best to keep the music to a minimum but it helps my reaction time for some dumb reason. Loud music equals < .500. Stock I routinely saw 14.9-15.2. With only VSA disabled, times were much more around 14.6-14.8. Running Ktuner 21.5 I routinely see 14.4 around 98mph.

    What do you mean by this, the pedal dance?
