They have cars like this from the factory in our class so its not that crazy of a concept. ie. civic 4 banger econ car can be bought with 150hp with high 30 mpg or 200hp with 22/31 MPG as taken from their site.1. I don't have a skyactiv 3
2. I have zero mods besides an intake and MS3 rsb
3. I have no intentions of modding any further
You must have confused me with esm
I understand it's counterproductive to mod an econobox. So I took 3 grand and bought a Triumph Speed Triple to go fast on instead of modding my 3. 11.2 quarter mile and 35 mpg.
Same thing with our cars with a few mods and a tune its like saying the difference between civic and civic si. Its not counterproductive, its just what your preference is. I would of bought the si but I like this car for its looks and the hatch so figured I could get just as much power with tune and mods. And ya it's not gonna be "fast" by any means but its the same reason people get the Si, it will get your heart beating a little more and its fun to zip around.
