Haha that shits funny!!! Ahhh where would we be without civic owners
Cristian Hernandez May 15, 2011
@Nathan no 150hp decals?
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
I might go this year. Depends what's on the plate when it comes up. But I did ROTC, that's why I had enough money to set aside. I got an officers pay check.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Car like a Camaro, Chevelle, or GTO and put a huge stroker in it.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
For real though, if for some crazy or weird reason you'd want to change your brakes, I'd totally buy those six pistons off of you. If I had a Z06 all I would do to it is get the meanest exhaust ever. If you wanna do a stroker setup get an old project
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Well let's both go this year! I've seen vids of it on YouTube and it looks like a lot of fun. I wish I had gone into the armed forces out of high school instead of college. But I'd go back to college after my service.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
I live in KY! I have heard, but never gone. I'd like to, but I'm not sure. I wanted to get a stroker lot for shits and gigs. I gave my "toe" when I was investing all my navy pay check for 21 years haha. My job now is more of something to do.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Oh shoot you have a Z06?! Awesome! You don't need a stroker kit then. Hell just a bigger cam and exhaust will do the trick. I'd cut off one of my toes for a Z06. Shoot some vids of it! Hey do you know about LS fest in Kentucky? I wanna go this year
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
You sacrifice a pocket if spending money as a young man, and in return you can have nice things as a middle aged man. Words of advice here.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
No videos. I'm always busy with work. I have the LS7 in it. That's why I'm expecting so much of a gain and ending up with close to 700 HP. I have a C6 Z06. I was investing my money at 18, I'd advise all the younger people here to do the same.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Get some bigger injectors, bigger fuel pump, and make sure that rear end can hold up and you're good! Have any vids of it?
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
That's awesome. I love Borla. I think the Corsa Pace System is my favorite though. Do you have the LS2 or LS3 C6? I would just get some forged internals, find a badass heads/cam combo, slap a Magnuson on there so you don't have to get a new intake
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
The 725 would take an aggressive cam! So I will settle for 675-700 with the cam and displacement mod.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
No doubt that it will be pushing over 600 Hp. If I did cam an displacement I would see ~725 more than likely. I'm trying to keep torque and HP close to each other.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
I believe it's Borla. I have to have a shop do it for me because it has to get done fast because it's my daily driver. I was thinking about a cam and a displacement mod/stroker kit next. I just don't know enough about grinds for the cam.
Jorge Martins May 15, 2011
I own a civic too and have no idea what these people are talking about lol. All I did was a k20a engine swap and added type r springs and a spoon chipped ecu. Neons, chrome rims? lol I seen that on neons and accords.
Jesus Guerra May 15, 2011
Haha I have a civic and it's stock. It really irritates me when people change the taillights and they seem to be just sitting there ready to fall off
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Nice! What exhaust? Get a cam and some heads too!
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
Which reminds me Patrick, I was going to tell you, I got new headers, full exhaust, a ram air, and a power duct to put on the Z06. This dyno should be crazy.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
Who cares. I'm done trying to justify my car to people. Anyone can think whatever they want about my car, their head would explode when I take off down the street.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Haha better be careful calling the Z06 a Super Car. Peoples heads will explode when they see that.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
Andy Andy Andy.... A tuned civic doesn't beat a super car. I don't care what you do to a civic, it's not beating a R8, Z06 or anything like those.
Andy Rogers May 15, 2011
@Ken I would expect a tuned car to beat a stock car. Or a highly tuned car to beat a not-as-tuned car
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
That will be a can of worms that won't close Dennis.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
I think the windows were at 5% tint too. And the fake boost gauge has a back up.
Andy Rogers May 15, 2011
4000 more hp? It must have everything! Neon, 20 spoilers, 500 stickers, HUGE subwoofers, quad fart cans, lowered to the ground, big 30in gold spinners, Lambo doors, HUGE bodykit, fake CF hood, fake CF roof, 15 fake scoops, the lot
Brock Bűlbűl May 15, 2011
When I had a cavalier in High School, I got a raving stripe put on it. That shit flew, kid.....
Dennis Rech May 15, 2011
At least 250 hp for the chrome coffee can Ken. I'm waiting for the conversation to blow out when others realize that a C6 is a corvette. Oops, let the cat out of the bag.
Tom Franquelli May 15, 2011
Adam is right, at least 50 HP per sticker.
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
Hahaha that's awesome! Good job CarBuzz. I was honestly thinking it would be so kind of rally Caliber. That'd be awesome.
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
Question.... How much HP does the crap can exhaust tip add??? *when they can actually get it on without it half falling off.
Stephen Ishard May 15, 2011
Is that a typo or exaggeration
Garrett Carpenter May 15, 2011
Come on guys. We all know that boost gauges and sounds systems are the easiest way to boost HP.
Patrick Kennedy May 15, 2011
My 80 year old grandma has a civic...... And its stock, pretty rare
Ken Madison May 15, 2011
It's a closely guarded secret. That's why they get mad. Most of those civics stomp my C6 down the strip.
Barry Boo Wilson May 15, 2011
David that's why it said "many" and not all. I wonder how many people are going to get butt hurt and say that was a bad joke? I personally Was looking for a 392 stuffed in the caliber :)
Jonathan Newcastle May 15, 2011
Let's not forget aftermarket oil caps, shift knobs, hood scoops, an the ubiquitous wing...
Adam Zarytsky May 15, 2011
I can't believe dodge forgot the stickers... Easiest way to add on hundreds of horsepower
David Sasso May 15, 2011
that's pretty stereotypical :/ I'm all for picking on them but not all civic drivers are like that
Mike Conrad Aug 07, 2011
Manlier, ok. But that's no reason to buy one at all.
Zach Paiz May 20, 2011
They look man-lier than the neon thats for sure
Brett Powers May 15, 2011
Hey Jason, how many times are you going to make the same comment?
Eric Guillemette May 15, 2011
Caliber looks cheap and shitty no matter what you do
Andy Rogers May 15, 2011
They also used the SRT4 engine in the PT Cruiser GT (turbo) but I don't know about the engine after that
Patrick Schalk May 15, 2011
That's a good question. I mean they killed the Neon (which was a good move if you ask me). But the SRT4 was a pretty quick little car
Angel G. Ortega-Valentin May 15, 2011
An SRT-4 Mopar Edition would make a lot more sense than an SXT...whatever happened to the SRT-4 anyways?
Mark Swanholm May 15, 2011
I hate these dopey looking cars.
David Bright May 15, 2011
I've always liked the way the caliber looks
Brett Powers May 15, 2011
It can stay in south Africa as far as I am concerned.
Jessica Peterson May 15, 2011
Yah this car just needs to go away.
Jason Johnson May 15, 2011
Junk, junk, junk, no matter how you spin it!
David Bright May 15, 2011
Yeah stickers! + Horsepower!
