...supercharge them. You cannot beat a 2300 lbs.
car with 200 or so HP vs. a 3800 lbs with say
310 hp with Dinan mods until you reach high speeds, then your horsepower will eventually win out. Also, I guarantee you that the civic was a manual and the driver knew how to use it real well.

NOTE: I used the ENGLISH unit system because
I just didn't feel like doing the conversions.

'97 540iA
with practically Dinan everything...
ANXIOUSLY waiting for a reliable SUPERCHARGER
probably Dinan's


: 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.

: NW
