Re: Dodge did better in 91' with an inline-4 than 02' civic!!! i dont think its fair to compare this to a Type R civic, type R is only made in japan... but ya know what, wow, its actually a pretty damn close comparison, and its sad that we're comparing a brand new civic, vs this OLD spirit r/t, it goes to show that when america wants to make a nice 4 banger, they can do it, and do it damn well. Take the SRT-4 neon for example. BTW, is it just me, or does Mopar beat every other car in every one of its classes? i was just thinkin about that, i could very easily be wrong, but what if its true! for example im just thinkin about, Viper vs NSX, srt-4 neon vs Civic Type R, hmm... Stratus R/T vs accord coupe? (not even sure bout that 1) dont even take that seriously im just thinkin out loud.
