i dunno, my stock 93 lx could haul some ass, maybe its just the way i drive. ive kicked many modded honda/acuras asses. even my moms t-bird couldnt keep up.

well for the most part the LX starts at about 88hp. I guess the key element in one is to fight weight. If you can get your full 88hp and weigh only 2300lbs you´d do better then an old 95hp honda with 2800lbs (gotta have a stereo or something but the weight is possible)

my 95 lx wagon is slow as hell whtn you´ve got two people and cargo, but when you take out the seats, spare tire, and throw in a clean air filter and some good ol 5w-30 mobil-1 synthetic oil, it´s pretty quick. Still not the fastest thing out there though. The top end of the LX sucks, but without the weight, the low end is pretty good.

I still want a gt though.

sure they´re not the speediest things around, but was the one you were in an auto? would make a world of difference. an stick for an LX is like steroids, really gives it some muscle and better control. i´ve owned quite a few non-si civics, neons, z22´s, even a 1980 trans am (was auto though).
during a local autoX event which was navigating the pylons in the dirt, i even beat out an rx7. its not just the car, the driver has a lot to do with it too. and i might have maybe 92hp with my mods so far

Has anyone turboed the 1.9L LX engine? That´d sure enough make it a lot faster!

Seems like the easiest and most common ways to get more power out of this engine is to change the intake and exhaust.

the intake mod is a spoof. doesnt help any, id rather have the stock air box, my motor stayed cooler that way, the intake mod, even with the hoodvent didnt help at all in traffic.

My pony (even cheaper than lx) can beat a 1st gen gt easily, but not a second gen gt. It does have it´s share of mods though.
