    D15B civic vs H22 lude , i won but i dont think the guy knows how to drive it.. we have the same mods ( common bolt on's) and iam chipped. How should the race have went, i so think that prelude should have won ya?

    Probably a combination of your car being fairly light compared to his and him not being able to manage a stick shift very well then...

    yeah man the prelude should be high 14s low 15s with a good driver... and those are pretty hard numbers to hit with a bolt on single cam. but yeah there are a lot of variables...

    Preludes are TANKS in comparison to an EK and if the prelude driver can't launch it....that can add up to a half second to the run. Some motors are gifted too and I have seen D16 in the mid-low 15's with three bolts
