    You can build a 9 second honda for about $5500. A friend has $7500 total into his GSR with JDM ITR front end, makes just over 750whp on high boost and E85. Cars are no joke from a high roll.

    Im not hatin,but every high horsepower Honda Ive come across spends more time in the garage being fixed or breaking while racing then actually racing lol. Last time I ran a 700whp Civic from a roll the dude sent a rod out the side of the block. And he swore up&down in the parking lot how fast&reliable his car was lol

    That could happen to anyone, no matter what platform. Some people do things right, some people do things wrong. Some people just have bad luck. I never blew a single motor in the 7 years i played around with Honda's. The asshat i sold my turbo civic to blew it a few months after owning it. Goes to show you what happens when you don't know how to take care of your $#@!.

    On the other hand, i did have a motor start knocking after putting too much RTV on the oil pan gasket. Slowly clogged the oil pickup and the motor developed a rod knock. I drove it that way, boosted, for a few months KNOCKING like crazy. Gotta love honda. I learned my lesson from that.
