Went to Hot Import Nights last night in Ft. Lauderdale - big dissapointment - only 2 golfs amongst the rice. It helped some of my friends see the light though - I asked them if they remembered any of the Hondas. None of us could because there were sooo many. Then I asked them if I they remembered seeing the golfs and the bmw's - we all could, which is the exact reason I bought my car (it's not just another #$%^% Honda).
On the way back, I raced a 260 hp 1.8t - very phat, and he spanked me
.
Anyways, if the owner of that car sees this post - I'm not gonna be able to come in this Monday, only the following Monday (the 10th). Please e-mail me and let me know if that's ok... Thanks...

Re: 260 hp green 1.8t last night in Ft. Lauderdale. (turbocharged)

What's in there making that kind of power? Crank or wheels?

Re: 260 hp green 1.8t last night in Ft. Lauderdale. (Jman5000)

Good Question - I don't think those #'s are to the wheels though - he didn't spank me that bad
. He had a whole lot of stuff done, I don't recall him saying KO4 though - would it be possible to push that kind of power without a KO4? - I think not...

well, that kind of power could possibly be made, but i doubt it. to be running that kind of boost on a KO3 is not possible. that turbo would not last at that kind of PSI level.

i think it might be possible to push 260hp at the crank from a K03. DBJ is pushing 213hp at the wheels in his, add in the missing 15% for drivetrain loss and you're at about 251 crank. throw some cams in or underdrives and you might be at 260.....

No, it's just an exaggeration.
A look at the sales #'s would tell you that.

I'd rather live there than in the South. They really do breed ignorace down here.
