I can't find any civic specs. There's a kid at school with a 94 civic base model. He says he has a cold air and cat back exhaust on the car. What might be horse before and after? Should I worry about him?

1994 Civic
2 Dr CX Hatchback, 70 hp, 2108 lbs.
2 Dr DX Hatchback, 102 hp, 2108 lbs.
2 Dr DX Coupe, 102 hp, 2231 lbs.
2 Dr EX Coupe, 125 hp, 2231 lbs.
2 Dr Si Hatchback, 125 hp, 2108 lbs.
2 Dr VX Hatchback, 92 hp, 2108 lbs.
4 Dr DX Sedan, 102 hp, 2213 lbs.
4 Dr EX Sedan, 125 hp, 2213 lbs.
4 Dr LX Sedan, 102 hp, 2213 lbs

Intake and exhaust add ~5 hp to the flywheel.
You do the math.

106 HP on a 94 Civic DX or similarly-equipped model. Honda stock exhausts are notoriously constricted, so a 5-10 HP gain from a good-quality, well-designed CAI with a proper filter is possible. Exhaust....depends entirely on what was done to it (cat-back is not sufficiently detailed to provide an estimate). Overall, significantly lighter car, but significantly less torque. If you're going to take it to a track, would probably come down to skill. If you're going to take it to the street, I'll assume your driving is as poor as your judgement.

I beat a 92-95 Civic 4dr in my ST from like 20mph up. Compare that to a 2dr vs GTS

If it's an EX coupe, it'll probably beat you. The extra 400 lbs on the GT fucks you over, the extra torque and hp from the 5SFE can't make up for that. The EX coupe is as fast as a 6th gen.

My gt kicked my friends DX hatchy with CIA/exhaust/uprated wires.

He has since put a b16 in it. I try to keep up, but that's why I have my GTS. :)

Sorry there bud but I took a Civic 2 door EX from a 20mph roll and i beat him by 1 1/2 cars... BTW my girl was with me and he was alone. I raced my brother's 99 Civic ex and beat him too.

I'm just bench racing, but by the numbers, he should've won. 5th gens run high 16's at best, while the EX Coupe run mid-16's. The published 0-60 times for the EX coupe are a full second faster than the published times for the GT-S (8.4 vs 9.5).

this could be one of the slowest races ever!
