    well my buddy eddie has an 88 CRX SI, pretty nice condition. all he has is Exhaust, header, and advanced timing. He ran a 15.2, i dont know how he does it?? is that fast for just those mods?

    just cause you couldnt get a faster time with your swapped leaky bomb doesnt mean someone else with a relatively stock car that drives very well couldnt.

    I would expect 15.8 / 96mph with I and H, if it's done right. The car can do what, high 16 stock? Getting from 16 to 15 isn't that tough.

    Now I've been in several 14 second cars, and it's a great difference over 15 second cars. Then of course the sub 13's, to me, are fast as all hell. So 15 seconds I could go with.

    Not to mention, they don't weigh shit, 15.XXX isn't actually fast persay, but rather quick.

    Thank you, Thank You,

    An engine swap is still needed though. If I put the EW block back in it, I'm sure it would keep me happy for a long time. This time (Since my block is bone stock and original) if I did the Airjockie mods to the lower end, the car would be unstoppable.

    I'll be dangling from a bridge the day that car gets in a collision too.

    The CRX weighs like 1900 lbs--big-ass difference.

    From what im reading people dont believe that CRX si wont do low 15s at the track. I myself have ran 90 and lower CRXs Si from my friends an the most ran low 15s. And they just have bolt on mods like headers, intake, and little stuff like that. Even my DEl sol when i had the d15b7 didnt run times like my friends CRX Si.
    I mean compare the both engines, (d15b7=102@5900 and D16a6=108@6000) But then compare the chassis weights (Del sol=2295 and CRX si=2174) Yeah doesnt look much of a difference but I ran time of low 16s never lower than 16.0. and he runs low 15s.

    So in my opinion i do believe crx si can run low 15s at the track. :)

    He probably has some internal engine work or something less noticable. Maybe a sneaky pete nitrous setup?

    if he ran it then i guess it's good for a 1900lb sohcER with literally no mods, traction is key.
