Default honda civics why do so many hate the real power ones?

okay whenever you go into a city where its basically muscle cars, the hate on your honda. you can have one stock for $1000. Then redo the whole car. engine, turbo, suspension,rims,exhaust system and it will blow those cars away. For less than it cost for those musscle cars stock, i have a car that looks dropped, has sounds, rims, and pushes 450 hp to the wheel. yes i said 450(dyno and street dyno). when they race me they stfu after. and funny thing, my car was pushing almost 300 before the turbo. I fully built the engine originally for NA(naturally aspirated for those newbies) and i was still whipping cars of all types, 911, bmw m3,tt,shelby mustangs,STI, etc... you get the point. so why do so many people hate civics and not the people who dont know what they are doing to the car instead. my car is faster, cheaper, and better in almost everyday. it saves more gas, lighter, easier to fix, drifts, and purrs.(i have an exhaust system , not a muffler welded on to a dumb pipe) and i can make it loud or soft at my will.

PRIDE who wants to be driving a nice BMW m3 and get whooped by a Honda Civic? Thats embarrassing! Their pride gets crammed down their throat, why spend all that money for such a slow bmw?

Hondas just flat out rule and people just cant let their pride go to admit it.

Although I am fairly certain you are lying, they hate on what they do not understand, its just human nature.

The reason they hate you is because of all the riced out Honda's on the streets. They expect another Ricer w/o balls and when they get their butt handed to them it hurts their pride.

okay first this is clearly a lie. i work with hondas. look a $1000 car cant do shit, its not like it comes with a b16, b20, k20. max with even the best turbo is 500. and even if you find a bigger turbo, there is going to be a lagg in turbo. and even if you add supercharger and turbocharger that aint gonna work too, its barely gonna beat the power to weight ratio. and your looking at 6 bangers and awd 4 bangers. also even if u have a car that pushes 450 at wheels u have a FWD so its gonna spin.. clearly you are lying. even 300 hp is nothing. i can get a subaru sti with a better turbo than those mitsubishi stock turbos and own you why? AWD and the 4 banger engine is evenly distributed, your engine is not its a inline. Subaru is flat. also when your car is using a turbo your not saving gas-.-x your wasting think more air means more gas and higher octane lvl. why because you air might ignite the gas before the spark ignites. so even if you get the best turbo its gonna cause engine ploblems. more air means more gas, air to gas ratio.

Hmmm I love Honda's, I have a track only Hatchback pushing 350hp on a STOCK b16 (1.6) turbocharged boosting 16 pounds best time was 11.3 so far. My motor is being put together as we speak hoping for those 10's in the 1/4 of a mile. It sound like to me that you have a big when you said you raced ALL those cars did you race in the street or track? I'm not trying to put any fellow honda enthusiastic down, but some of the thing you say don't make sense. Now i'm not sure how much you've dumped on your car, but i've put about 10k in my turbo set up not including what is being done now to the 1.8 (ls) i'm getting ready. When you say you saves more gas i agree that it cost less in a 4cyl than a 8cyl but i run 100 octane so i forgot what that feels like. I think the reason ppl hate on us is because alot of ppl go out and talk like they know what there talking about, but instead make us look dumb. also because of body kits and there hideous. It is true well for me at least, to work on Honda's it's cheap and i can do it on my own. I just want to know where you bought a honda for 1k. Or was it just the shell? well good luck with all the poop your gonna get, because honestly some things you say don't click.

Here's my baby
