they are high revving engines. unless u open them up to about 5k rpm, they will appear to be slow. additionally, there are 3 types of engines in the civic, 1.6 with 106 hp, 1.6 sohc with 129 hp, and 1.6 dohc with 160 hp. but dont worry, u will still get to 7-11 in time to get a slurpee no matter what. lol

if a VTEC powered engine,i strongly reccomend the piggyback ecu from APEXi V-AFC or the new version AFC-Neo.. its a cool looking electronic gauge that can tuned the VTEC to make it faster..and make the VTEC screams earlier..

Well, if your friends' cars have stick shifts, and yours is an automatic that would slow yours down, but like everyone else is saying it all depends on the engine you've got. Who cares how fast it is though. As long as you like it right? :-)
