Author Topic: civic si\'s are much better than probes
leftymvp16 Posted on 2002-06-12 at 14:32:22
civic si's are much much better than Fix Or Repair Daily Probes. I have a 99 civic si with a new header, stt bar, cold air intake, and exhaust and i promise i wi smoke any probe even when i was stock. Vtec's are the best engine ever. Oh yea mustangs suck ass too

civic's are okay, but I woudn't be quick to say that you can smoke any probe. don't underestimate what you hate :rolleyes: I've raced many civic si's being that there are plenty around here in san diego and I've smoked most of the ones I've raced, but I'll admit a couple of them were faster than me. but with your mods I would definitely smoke you. you live in or anywhere near san diego? i would definitely love to show you what a PGT can do...

Jennifer Posted on 2002-06-13 at 07:27:33
I LIKE CIVICS. A FRIEND OF MINE HAS A NEW S2000 AND GOT SMOKED BY A LITTLE CIVIC. I THINK THEY'RE BAD...I'VE SEEN THEM BEAT NEW CORVETTES.

leftymvp16 Posted on 2002-06-13 at 12:17:15
hahahahah 96probegt hahah if i lived near san diego i would give you money to put mods on ure probe then we would race for the money i gave you just to prove that civics are way better than probes. P.S. it is pretty bad when a 4 cylender can beat a V6 probe why dont you take ure car against a V6 honda like a NSX or a S2000 you will get smoked. And dont even start thinking that V8 Mustangs can take V6 NSX's cause they cant. Oh yea one more thing the new NSX will have a V8 and smoke any ford.

Dude, just keep your mouth shut, just about everyone here thinks your an idiot.

raynfall Posted on 2002-06-13 at 15:30:07
I don't think he's an idiot. I think he's an asshole. But that's just me. Face it, Civics are economy cars. Tough, cheap little economy cars. And there's nothing wrong with that. But even the best stock civics are still running 16 second quarters while a stock probe gt is in the mid to low 15s. As for modded cars. You can make anything faster then anything within reason. I've seen some pretty modded Civic SIs. My friend owns one. Marks car is sweet, but frankly for the cash that's into it I could have a car that's a hell of a lot faaster.

96probegt Posted on 2002-06-13 at 20:47:02
Like I said lefty16 you would need more mods than me to to keep up with me. I know people with civic si's and have raced them with mods like yours and I beat them all the time. That just shows you how much you know about probes. I'm not hatin on you just telling it how it is. peace...

raynfall Posted on 2002-06-13 at 21:53:50
Ignore him, he's a prick. What other type of person would come on a probe site and bash probes? He's bringing nothing but immaturity to the board. I've lost any desire to be civilized with people like him. He oucld have been nice. But christ. A Civic SI....???? HA!!! I mean, unless he has about 5 grand or better under the hood I have no doubts I could take him.

Tygerr Posted on 2002-06-14 at 01:12:23
Seriously rayn, who has time but to go to other people's boards, actually register a name and talk crap about a certain car. Why the probe? Than he actually comes back to see our feedback, no life i say, i don't know about anyone else but i don't go around and type in other cars forums just for the hell of it.

96probegt Posted on 2002-06-14 at 01:29:04
Well, I haven't been to this board in such a long time and one of the first posts I come across is this one and had to say something. Didn't know he had such a disliking here. Well, I'm pretty sure that he's gonna come back here and say something ignorant that I'm just gonna leave it at that. Looks like he's just a hater. Thanks for the heads up guys...

weapon01 Posted on 2002-06-14 at 11:20:35
my theory is his precious civic was bashed by a probe.. so he looked up probes, found this site like we did and started bashing them cuz.. well.. your answer is as good as mine.

raynfall Posted on 2002-06-14 at 17:25:19
Tygerr, good call. It's not really anything to do with the fact he doesn't drive a probe. Im a member of mx6.com and dont drive an mx6. Though a probe is closer to a mx6 then a civic. But there's people on the site with civics and talons. But people are friendly and nobody bashes cars like this. I have no problem with him owning a civic. They are not that bad a car. Just don't be a prick about it

DaProbeGT Posted on 2002-06-18 at 00:48:29
I have a 96 Ford Probe GT, i have never lost to a honda, even when my car was stock. But I have had close call with a friends Civic Si, but i still one. I just think with a Probe there just all around better cars,~better engine, the suspension is 100 times better than a honda and everything just about a probe is better~.

jay Posted on 2002-07-20 at 01:06:22
wepon, just for the record, a v6 van weighs alot more than your probe. no offense, just somthing to think about.

raynfall Posted on 2002-07-20 at 18:31:16
DaProbeGT.... I've seem a lot of Hondas that are incredibly realiable and take a beating that my PGT would never hold up to. And I've got 181 whp right now and my friend Bob's Lude is still faster. Fucker....

weapon01 Posted on 2002-07-23 at 09:47:54
jay -"a v6 van weighs alot more than your probe" never said it wasn't. that had no point.. i was just saying that i can beat them. :)

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-06 at 20:57:43
every one knows hondas suck big dic like their owners!

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-07 at 18:03:47
....And my girlfriend :)

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-07 at 19:04:11
lol

Tsi Talon (lefty) Posted on 2002-08-07 at 21:02:14
Wow weapon u can beat a van holy shit ure car must suck ass oh ya it is a probe here is what i would do get rid of the probe and get a real car u dumbass

Tygerr Posted on 2002-08-07 at 21:52:43
Dude, that's lame. I can beat my friends Talon easy, reason for it he's a dumbass who don't know how to take care of cars. He blew the engine racing my other friends piece of crap acura. It's just sitting outside now rotting waiting for an engine it'll never get. Anyway, grow up, your car does have a twin turbo, wait till i get my car turboed, than we'll see.

weapon01 Posted on 2002-08-08 at 12:23:42
lefty.. your driving a talon man, not a racecar.. go cry somewhere else.. what happened to your civic, it break down? i didn't think any 99' car could suck so much to break down by 2002. honda has proven me wrong..

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-08 at 17:06:20
Weapon, a Civic would have lasted thaqt long. Obviosly he demonstrated his exceptional mechanical skills by "tuning" the engine to make it perform better

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-08 at 18:02:05
WOW! your LAZER is way to cool,my bad ECLIPSE,O' that's right a TALON.that's one thing i love about my car,it's not a "ME TOO"car.RAM YOUR EAGLE UP YOUR ASS!

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-08 at 21:33:22
Wait wait.... our cars have enough in common to be like 626s or MX6s. But then again, I don't want to be like every other loser highschool kid who thinks he's cool. It used to be you needed a tricked out Civic DX. Now a Talon/Laser/Eclipse will do just fine

osiris Posted on 2002-08-14 at 14:37:35
haha i like the comment about the new nsx beating a ford mustang GT... lol ok yeah lets compare a $90,000 car to an $18,000 one lol what a total idiot, if you want to compare cars put a new viper against the new NSX- about the same price 2003 NSX $89,000 290hp@7100 224lb-ft@5500 wt-3153lbs 2003 Viper $73,000 500hp@5600 525lb-ft@4600 wt-3357lbs

osiris Posted on 2002-08-14 at 14:41:14
whoops, thats a 2002 nsx not 2003 and the comment about the same price- forget it the acura is was more, sorry for the mistakes

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-14 at 20:51:37
i can't take a fender or door or any thing off a 626 or a mx6 and put on my car!i've seen lazer fender a talon door puy on a eclipse!

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-14 at 21:14:23
Still they are close enough. But who cares. Id rather have my pgt then a talon compatible

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-15 at 21:52:35
that's why i bought my car,i didn't think of how hard it would be to get parts or how much $ i was going to spend,but none the less its a 1 of a kind!

Black93GL Posted on 2002-08-16 at 18:21:17
Lol lefty... You think your hard with your Civic eh? I paid 8600 for a car that will make you piss your pants if I even rev on you. Again, you were talking about a 89000 car... My 94 T/A (the one I bought for 8600 WITH 38000 Miles) will keep right up with that NSX and I paid 10s of thousands less. Lets look at this: 2003 NSX $89,000 290hp@7100 224lb-ft@4600 1994 T/A $8,600 275hp@5200 325lb-ft@2400 I'm not even going to waste time comparing to your talon or civic. Yeah some are faster, but put the same amount of $$ into mods on the V8 as you do on your 4 cyl and you can enjoy the view of our exhaust bus lengths ahead of you. BTW, my 2.0 probe can take any civic modded the same amount except for an SI. Moron.

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-16 at 19:51:18
YA!

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-16 at 20:04:35
Yeah, but black, the NSX has you hands down handling. And they have this other level of mystique. Plus, being a honda they are most likely reliable

Black93GL Posted on 2002-08-19 at 04:38:37
handling yes... but if I even invest 10k into suspension etc I'm still WAAAY under the NSX book and I bet my car will handle better. As it is I get about .9 G's stock.

raynfall Posted on 2002-08-19 at 16:43:35
Hey no doubt you got a nice car. Id rather have an nsx. For the money though I think I'd move towrds other toys though..... a skyline would be nice

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2002-08-19 at 18:05:22
i would love to have a skyline,but your going to spend some crazy $!

turboterrorford Posted on 2002-08-31 at 00:11:31
I thought this was a page about Probes? whats with all the import talk?

raynfall Posted on 2002-09-01 at 10:48:44
Open conversation about cars. Happens on any car forum.....

ProStreet Posted on 2002-10-12 at 00:19:47
Civic SI?!!? You talking about the little Blue Civics with the VTECH on the side and the little factory ground FX? They are slow! I WIN! I have 94 Probe GT race anything with the word Civic on it and I win! NO CONTEST!

Eric Posted on 2002-10-26 at 00:50:15
Man! Civics look bad! I've seen them souped up, and when they buzz pass me I laugh because they look bad. I am sorry but I don't think people should go to fansite for other cars and make fun of them. I won't go to a Civic site and bash them, I don't care what there mods are, they're annoying ugly little car(but at least I can say that on a Probe site, not a Civic)! If you wish to bash Probes then please go to a Civic fansite, I don't care how much you bash them there.

chilliwacko Posted on 2002-10-27 at 04:47:32
Just to comment on the talon argument, the only car that can touch its speed to cost ratio is a late 80's early 90's 5.0l mustang, and even that is dead even with it. And personally, I'd take the DSM any day because it looks way nicer (much like a probe :D )

Tygerr Posted on 2002-10-27 at 21:49:59
Anyway, people with talons need to stop acting like there car is so bad, of course a turobed 4 banger will beat my 2.0. Now if i turboed my car I'd tear that talon to pieces. Talons are just cheap eclipses with an eagle symbol stuck on em.

Eric Posted on 2002-10-28 at 00:31:49
I like Eclipses and Talons, they're cute (and to any one who fine cute vaguely instulting they're cool). I personally want a six cylinder in the end because if you like to go quick even a turboed four banger getting a lot of damage. You rushing gas through four cylinders and making them put out more horsepower than they can handle them which will kill the engine off quicker than a similar or weaker six cylinder. This is why I would hate to own a turboed four cylinder.

raynfall Posted on 2002-11-15 at 00:37:02
A talon also breaks quite easily too chilliwacko. They can go fas, cheap, but you better have a thick wallet to start putting it back together when you do

JHew84 Posted on 2002-11-21 at 07:28:35
haha, comparing a low 16 second car to a mid 15 second car? hey, dude with the Si, grow up and realize your car is not the shit, and the NSX's are not that fast either, like 13 second 1/4's, wow, a MGT can run that to, as well as a TA, and for the money a viper would be MUCH better since it is in the low 12's, why don't you go out and research some cars before you start shooting incorrect statements out of your ass...

JHew84 Posted on 2002-11-21 at 07:31:06
with that said, i have no disrespect for civic's or honda's of any kind, only owners like this that don't realize the potential of any other car, i do realize other cars potentials, thats why if you revved on me on the street, i'd let out a giggle and proceed to let you veiw the ass-end of my car :)...

Rob Baker Posted on 2002-12-25 at 13:57:15
Yo...Shit head with the "awesome" civic...I have a 97 ford probe...race green and it would be wise to stay out of the way of my 350 hp car. I chew up hondas and shit out caviliers and sunfires, with the occasional vomit of mitsubitis!

raynfall Posted on 2002-12-27 at 22:52:41
Rob, I call BS. I'm not aware of many 300+ hp Probes. And 350 is even more absurd. If you said 250 I'd have bought it, but I don't buy that. What mods you got to pull off this feat?

raynfall Posted on 2002-12-27 at 22:53:38

What mods you got to pull off this feat? \and honestly, my 181 whp PGT chews apart all the cars you mention. With 350hp you should be taking apart Vette Z06s and Supra TTs.... Do your research before you make shit up. That way you don't look retarded

Rob Baker Posted on 2002-12-28 at 14:45:04
I beat Mustangs, camaro SS's and Z's, I've never pulled up next to a vette or supra. And I seldom race, it's dangerous and stupid(besides I don't need a ticket) but if somebody wants to rumble then I'll rumble. And I miss typed, it should have been 305 hp, but soon after I get done it will be 350. And why is that so hard to beleive? I have a freind with a 450 hp del sol. Yes it IS 450 hp. all you gotta do is know what you're doing under the hood and you can add just about any amount of power you want. If i told you I had 305 with the stock transmition that would be rediculous, that dropped out of it a long time ago. The chassis/frame has been reinforced and the trans-axle has beed swapped(after I broke the first). Basically what I'm trying to say is that I don't have a whole lot of competition(other than Jim w/ the Del Sol Mike w/ the other probe and Tony w/ the eclipse) outside of the SF's and Cavaliers.

Rob Baker Posted on 2002-12-28 at 14:50:00
As far as Mods-I have a A german made T3/T4 hybrid turbo which spools at 2500-red line(unloads in full at 5500) and a millenia continuous Electric/turbine hybrid turbo that spools 1900-2500rpm's Cold Air and stand alone fuel management system, On a German made engine. A few others but those are the big ones.

Cheeky-fellow Posted on 2002-12-28 at 21:07:42
Vette Z06's,? Ha yeah right! Are you mentally retarded or do you just like to sound stupid? A base Vette has more than 350 horsepower dumb ass! Shit I mean a SVT Cobra has 390 and any Vette is better than that! Not too mention the Z06's. I think your knowledge is centered around your own probe and your ass cause you're talking out of it right now! And with totally knew engines in our cars 350 horses are not hard nor is it inconcievable to get. If you could look under my hood, 250 would seem unbeleivably low!

raynfall Posted on 2002-12-28 at 23:17:08
A Z06 is also heavier. A PGT pushing 350hp, which is what he opriginally wrote would be able to hold with a Z06. And the SVT Cobra has been discontinued due to it being plagued with problems. It's fast. Or broke. Just hope people who buy it get lucky and can keep it in the first category. Rob, what's so special about this German made engine?

raynfall Posted on 2002-12-28 at 23:23:30
Hey Rob, what's involved in yuor stand alone fuel management system? Did you hear that phrase on the TFATF and figure it would impress someone?

Black93GL Posted on 2002-12-29 at 03:36:19
Lol people are funny... Lets see some dyno slips, track slips and pics of your motor rob. I don't post here much, but I am on probetalk quite a bit. I am good rl friends with a 2 of the fastest 2g PGT's on the site and they are not even close to 300hp. I hope you shower often b/c you sure do spend alot of time with your head up your ass.

Cheeky-fellow Posted on 2002-12-29 at 10:32:16
I am sorry to inform you that Rob is not going to ba available for a bit, nor is his car. Last night he got broad sided by a tractor trailer, that ran a red, on the pass. side but it still fucked him up real bad! His car is totaled so you wont have to listen to anything about it. I hope your happy now, ass wholes! Now if you will excuse me I have to go see my freind in the hospital!

weapon01 Posted on 2002-12-30 at 08:14:32
Rob Baker - "And I seldom race, it's dangerous and stupid(besides I don't need a ticket)" hahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahaaa!!! dude, your such a loser.. do you know why? well i'll tell you anyway.. only a complete moron will mod out his car as much as you say you did and NOT race it. whether or not your car is real, you lose either way. cheeky - glad to hear your idiot friend is off the road. i feel safer already.

Jimmy Deez Posted on 2003-03-27 at 17:42:16

89 Turbo GT Posted on 2003-04-10 at 16:33:27
I have a 89 PGT and I have a couple of mod's. I have a 5th injector and some port work as well as a small shot of giggle gas( I dont need it and really never use it on the street) and I have never lost to a honda. I have lost to my friends 72 Chevy Nova, but it's pretty rad. I have peaked my car out at 148 mph,mid to high 11's in the qtr mile. I still need to get a chip and a couple of other things, but I know that I have a car that can compete with any car on the road and I dont have to sit arond reading car mag's and watching the fast and the furious, wishing that I had a car and bothering people on web site's about their intrest. Man these probes are fast enough to scare the crap out of you if you have the time and some $. I have around 5,000 total in my car (that includes what I paid for it) With a re build and a few part's from other car's Ive been creating a monster.

raynfall Posted on 2003-04-13 at 18:34:36
What mosd do you have? Isn't that car rev limited lower then the 2nd gen? And if so how do you hit 148mph. Is th 11 second thing based on anything?

john42388 Posted on 2003-10-23 at 19:15:44
ummm anyway, why woulkd u want and import honda , wen u can have a semi american probe?

(civic si vs. my ford) probe..i have stage 2 greddy turbo with hks blow off,stage 4 clutch, 3 inch greddy full exaust, bnm short t shifter, aen cam gears, nology hotwires, fluid line radiator, pp, gc suspension come to kentucky fker.. look

speedy Posted on 2005-04-29 at 23:37:46
alright everyone i am new to this forum but am not new to the performance world. Truthfully to compare a civic to a probe. I mean come on. It's all about money. How deep is your pocket. Now i have no problems with any particular car. I currently own a 99 ws6 and have seen talon's almost keep up. If you have a good supply of money then you can have a good supply of power. Also what ids wrong with 5.0 mustangs. Bang for the buck it is the easiest to mod car and can be a very sneaky sleeper. Truthfully why spend 10 to 15 thousand to make your civic as fast as say a ws6. For 5 thousand i can put a turbo in it and all you'll see is taillights. Not trying to be rude but cubic inches is key. The more you have to work with the greater potential. You dont see many 6 second 4 bangers now do ya.

HONDA...How Odd, No Damn Acceleration!

Scorpio_6 Posted on 2006-03-19 at 23:49:04
Besides, you ever notice how many of them are always for sale? You know, the ones that have some body damage and the primer grey paint job with the "$7000 OBO" price tag on them. Looks like mommy and daddy got tired of paying for their kids little imported rice...err, crack habit. Almost as sick as some of these assholes with the Volkswagens.

Cich Posted on 2006-11-14 at 15:36:14
yeah there are some "fast" civic's ehh ok i take that back there are some quick civics but for this dumbass to say a slightly modded si could take a V8 stang... you gotta assume hes some little 16 yr old punk kid who put like a grand in to the car mommy n daddy bought him that he begged for since he was 14 n first saw fast n the furious i wish he lived in new york becuase i would put my stock 94 pgt against his little rice burner for shits n giggles n then go get my 86 mustang GT with full cat back exhaust some cheap CAI eibach full suspension and dual piston front brakes drilled n slotted rotors. yeah im aware thats not thats not all too much but shit... with that stock 5.0 3.73 gears n that unfortunate automoatic tranny with no effort from the posi it possess's it would smoke mr. Brain Spilner in his ricey near stock civic si........................mvp shut your mouth n go buy a real car.
