the tiburon is heavier and has 134hp stock. it depends on transmissions of both cars, but its all a drivers race in reality

There both fwd cars. There diffence in weight is only 300lbs with the tiburon with 7 extra hp. I saw given equal drivers the tiburon would win. I agree with others, it would be a drivers race.

5sp vs 5sp you'll take the Tiburon. The Tiburon GT has a lot more horsepower than the base model and looking at 1/4mi. times the thing barely breaks into the 15s (low 16s, high high 15s car). They're pigs, too heavy, you should be able to take the base model.

They do respond well to mods though, so if the guy has I/H/E you might find yourself in a bit of a bind.

Ok... Every 100 pounds is a tenth of a second in the 1/4 mile. Well, 7 extra hp isn't going to give it 3 tenths of a second advantage when the car weighs in over the civic by 300 pounds. I Have a feeling, if both are driven the same way, it would be a battle of gear ratio's and drivers.

Heres the gear ratios for the 4cyclinder 2.0 tiburon manual

Gear Ratio 1st 3.462

Gear Ratio 2nd 2.053

Gear Ratio 3rd 1.393

Gear Ratio 4th 1.061

Gear Ratio 5th 0.837

now for a ex 1.7 4cyclinder civic

3.143

1.870

1.241

0.970

0.757

The gearing for both cars are similar, but the tiburon has slightly more aggressive gearing. The civic has 114lbs of torque, the tiburon has 136lbs of torque.

I still say the tiburon has the edge, given equal drivers. The tiburon has better gearing and torque. The 300lbs isn't that big of a difference.

Torque wins over hp. So The Tib def will have an edge. But Mainly. Its a driver race.

Depending on how much hp you get with the nitrious, i think the civic would win. I know Type S can walk a Tiburon gt at the top of second or begining of third. There some vids with a tiburon gt and type S racing. The gt has a half a car to 3/4 car lead till the type S shifts to third. Then again the Tiburon was getting some awesome launches when i saw the vid. Its on clubrsx if you do a search.
