that will b 1 good race. never underestimate vtec being that they r known turbo killers. it will b a very close race being that a honda is light on its feet. i have raced a few hondas and i have beat them. so i would say u will win. btw the car i beat them in was my 95 eclipse gst w/ a filter and no cat.

Trying to race a car like this in hypotheticals is NOT going to get you the correct answer. There are WAY to many variables to put in. A honda in its own stance is not that fast a car, but some people can do great things with them. On the other hand, some of the owners out there have NO CLUE as to what function over visual is.

A Civic with a GSR swap is a high 13, low 14 car. It'd be a very good race.

That said, I'd reccommend breaking your car in properly before racing it and fucking it up.

cobalt ss kicks gsr in the ass

i bouught my cobalt ss in indiana and on my way back to wyoming with a ladie and both our luggage in the trunk and back seat i had a paramedic in a gsr integra pull up next to me on my way to mcdonalds somewhere in iowa. i rolled down my window and asked what he had done and he said a type r chip cold air intake and a full two and a quarter exhaust. i said cool rolled up my window and proceeded to wax his ass. so there ya go. gsr stands no chance.

A Civic is lighter than a GSR; ~500lbs. or so, depending on generation, trim, etc.

It may stand a chance.

Stupid question but can you put a bov on a supercharger?
I had to look this up. Found someones take on it.

"supercharged engines don't generally use blow off valves. Its not unheard of, but its not very common."
"Any good system with a centrifugal supercharger will have a blow off valve.
Screw-type chargers integrated into the intake manifold do not need blow off valves since they appear downstream of throttle body."
