The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van.

April 2nd, 2016

Porsche’s latest line up of 2017 model year 911 Carreras have gone from naturally aspirated engines to forced induction adding a set of turbochargers to their boxer 6 cylinder engine.  So what does that mean for power and torque?  A lot of it with big increases over the previous non-turbo engines.
