: Long story short.

: Stoplight race.

: Me: 98 540iA

: Him: 96/97 Civic Si Hatchback (Lowered, tinted, Full
: of stickers, boombox I think)

: Result: Civic stayed ahead of me until about
: 115 km. I passed him but had to immediately stop at the next redlight. F&$%, again, I couldn't overtake him
: until 120 km.

: Results mean that the Civic's 0-60 is faster than my
: car.

: Question?: How is that possible? What kind of
: mods did that guy do to his car? Turbo/Nitrous/Supercharger?

: So, has anyone installed a supercharger yet. I remember
: a post back awhile about someone installing an ESS unit. How is that coming along?

: After this incident, I really,really want one.
