    i just traded my 93 del sol si for a 99 civic ex (sniff sniff, i'll forever miss my baby). i needed something more reliable, for i may be married in a few years. anyway, i was just wondering if the y8 is an improvement over the z6 in performance. i can't feel the vtec kick very hard. is that because the new engine has a more linear power delievery or what? any help would be appreciated. thanks and God bless.

    it has .2 more compression, a better combustion chamber, thinner head gasket, better tranny, and better intake maifold, and shitty obd2. other than that, they are pretty close

    thanks man. what about the vtec, it feels a lot smoother than the z6. or less abrupt, which ever makes more sense.

    They are basically the same engine. You shouldn't feel VTEC kick in on any sohc. Not really anyway.
