Although I agree with the moving on part I do not agree with your statement about our engines always sucking. The D17 has to be one of the strongest economy SOHC motors out there. If you give it half a chance, it will perform for you

Sorry about the misunderstanding. I love my D17 for many reasons:

1 ) Very reliable.

2 ) Quiet.

3 ) Good MPG.

4 ) Looks great.

Just the speed kills me. It's not like a race or anything. I don't even drive over the speed limit. I'd be nice to have some easy power.

I still think this thread should get closed. I'm sick of seeing it up here with no proof.

You guys need to give him a break, he's not joking.

Sure it might not be as fast as a DC-5 R, who cares, it's probably faster than most of your cars, so give the man some respect.

can't wait to see the video man!

Remember people that was untuned. That was the stock ECU then, I now have the AEM EMS but it is in the process of being installed and tuned.

what happened to 3rd gear, and why the hell are you bouncing off rev limiter? if you are untune you treat that lil run like your car is a piece..

could have atleast not given us you rev out from the start and bouncing off rev limit..idk. thats not how ive done vids or i have never seen anyone do vids like that on this site.

next time try getting all the gear, ill give you missing 2nd but you forgot about 3rd. car seems pretty quick thou.

The reason why I always hit rev limiter is because the car becomes insane after about 5000rpm and remember that I have the stage 3 cams & full valvetrain so this setup revs well over 8500rpm. And also the powerband on this cam is very high but none the less very nice.

I hate ******* a$$holes like zambaleno. In case you didn't know take a look at the two following threads and pay attention to the stage 3 cam specs on the 1st thread and then take a look at confirmation from Dezod of me buying the AEM EMS on the 2nd thread, so that i can remove the stock rev limit.

1st thread http://www.7thgencivic.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=212169
2nd thread http://www.7thgencivic.com/forums/sh...=235880&page=2

It is members like zambaleno that come unto the forums and talk a set of ******* **** just because they have a hole on their face.
