My 7thgen is going up 4 sale 2morrow :-(

Well, ive been thinking, so tomorrow once i take off my headers to take off the CEL, im gonna put up my car for sale, with everything on it, rims, sound system, everything, only have 54k miles, the reason im selling it is cuz i want a faster car, and a car that stick shift, and not auto, the cars im thinking on, is a (2000 Si Bseries) or a (2002 Si Hatch, kseries) or maybe an (2002 Rsx) if anything i think im gonna get the Si Hatch for sure, i fell inlove with the interior, and i know it has the k20a1, but all the a1 needs is turbo, so if i do get it, im not gonna buy anything xcept for rims, and thats it, no headers, no intake, no nothign, and just save up for turbo,

So yea, what do u guys think?

there is no k20a1. it's a k20a3.

I think you'd be much happier with the 2000 Si since it has real vtec.

i love the ep3s but u havta lower it a ton and lip kit or something..i hate them stock.. so look at it this way..ur going to havta spend some money to make it look good.. and go fast.. now on the other hand..the 00 si can look good with just rims and suspension.. and with basic bolt ons its pretty fast...look at ur investment and decide which one u like more..cuz you dont wanna waste your money..

this is gonna be my everyday car, which is why my interior matters to me alot, the 7thgen si, is nice from the interior, the 00si interior's is more like a 95 honda or something, its all plane, regardless of anything, i dont want the fastest car in the world, yet their both faster than the car i had, another reason why i am mostly choosing the 7thgen si, is because i have a 2001 civic right? the interior is aight too, so i dont really wanna feel like im selling my car to downgrade, yes, even though the 00 si would be faster, but yea hopefully u guys know what i mean, the 7thgen si, im just planning on boosting it, and thats it!, looks come after, i made that mistake with my 7thgen, i went looks first, but its too late now, w/e so yea,

the 7thgen SI may look like a minivan STOCK, but look at some with nice kits, a nice drop and some rims... and a Supercharger on it. those hatches look very tight when modded.

http://www.theksource.com/news/04/k-...tec-breakdown/

"K20a3-Acura Rsx Base and Civic SI models come in with 9.8:1 compression and 2 liters of displacement. The Base motor is rated at 160hp at 6500rpm and 141lb-ft at 4000 rpm. This motor does not use the conventional VTEC mechanism from the earlier B series motors but does have VTC. Instead it only has 2 cam lobes on the intake side and 1 on the exhaust lob. This motor has no VTEC mechanism on the exhaust cam and runs on 12 valves before 2200rpm with the other 4 slightly opening. It also has smaller ports than the Type S and Type R. The motor comes with a 5 speed transmission instead of the 6 speed and has no LSD. "

basically its about the same vtec thats in a civic ex almost. your welcome

ungay your civic and keep it

seriously, getting a used 2000 Si is trouble (around here anyways) they are all modified (poorly) and driven VERY hard. The minivan needs money poured into it, and blowing either one will kill the reliability.

2000 Civic Si = the shat. The K series is a great engine, but the 160HP models, if you're not boosting are just underpowered engines in overweight cars. High strung B series engines are the cat's meow, even though they're a bit long in the tooth, they're still bulletproof, fun to drive and have, as mentioned previously, 'real' VTEC. Not to mention, nobody said you can't turbo a B16

so whats gay about my civic? huh? anyways, rsx is fast, but its heavy, i think a 7thgen si boosted well probly a bit more quicker than a stock rsx, and like i said, its gonna be my everyday car, and i LOVE the 7thgen si interior compared to the 6thgen si, even though its a 2000 civic, the interior looks like it'll be from a like 95-96,and also, i really dont want the faster car in the world, i want something thats desent and fun to drive, so u mean to tell me a boosted 7thgen si isnt desent? im pretty sure it'll be way faster than a 7thgen civic ex, right? im just gonna get the 7thgen si, and not spend a dime on looks or anything, maybe just a system, and save up to boost it, and boost it, and it'll be a mean sleeper, all stock i mean ALL STOCK outside, and boostedk20 inside,
so do u guys still think i should get the 7thgen SI? or the 6thgen SI?

the 2002 rsx is a k20a2 the SI is a k20a3 I know because I traded my boosted civic after I stripped it back to stock for a 2002 rsx-s and have not even looked back

I'm just joking with you man. I just hate to see everyone (it seems like) trading good cars for questionable used ones just because they are faster on paper. The 6thgen Si is a pig with a tiny (but good) engine. The 7thgen Si is similar. They are very close to a 5sp EX with a good driver, except they have the POTENTIAL to be much faster than our cars. As far as I'm concerned, potential=$$$. When you boost you break.

well, im guessing ur saying that to get the 00si since im pretty sure where u live their rare right? well here in Southgate, i see them all the time, like ALL the time, in blue,red, and black i think, and that'll be a car hard to find with low miles, ok this is a better question, WHy get the 00 si? all im hearing is that to dont get the other SI cuz it looks ugly, but u mean to tell me that these right here are ugly? and yea u can say it costs money to fix them up, but so did it cost to my 7thgen sedan, so ur telling me this in lookwise right? so why get the 00si, cuz its better looking? just really want to know the rOOT of the answer thats all
