Is FWD Faster? 950HP Civic

July 7th, 2017

With a built 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, engine  and a 6785 twin-scroll turbocharger, this Honda Civic is taking on V8 powered Mustangs and Camaros with reckless abandonment. Not only is he taking them on – he’s whipping them in the majority of his races.

Helping the underdog import to surprise all those V8 jockeys is a wild looking custom intake manifold from KS Tuned in Kennewick, WA and dual (2 per cylinder) 2000cc ID fuel injectors.

Today the little Honda that could is running in the Banger Class at Chi-Town’s King of the Streets. This is a class set up for cars with manual transmissions and small (26-inch or less) tires.

This is a No-Prep event so traction is again at a premium. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much power you can make but how much the track will hold. It seems like this Civic has a handle on traction with its front-wheel drive setup providing some crazy burnouts but can it hang with nitrous, turbo, and supercharged monsters like the ones on hand at KOTS?

There are some super close races but this Honda makes it all the way to the finals in the Banger Class. Will it take home the KOTS crown? You’ll have to watch the video and see for yourself.
