IMO, 325 auto = civic Si manual
325 manual > civic Si manual

civic has 160hp in the Si. so no contest. of course you can't go 45mph in first gear like the civic :P

Sounds to me like a race that would ultimately be dicided by driver skill and not hp/torque numbers.

A civic Si is roughly 2800 lbs. Its a 1.6 liter, not 2.3 inline 4 cylinder. Find out what engine he has. If it is the d16a or the b16a. One has 108 hp and the other has 170hp and 110 ft/lbs of torque. This is due to compression, head design and VTEC. Its all high end power, the powerband starts at 6000 and ends at 7600. Your 325is is 3080 lbs and is a 2.5 liter inline 6 with 188 hp and 181 ft/lbs of torque. All of this is mid rev power, from 4100-5900 rpms. This race will all lie with who has better gearing and whos a better launcher. Youll get him off the start though, no question about it. He may pull past you in 3rd though

really? very interesting. I would think that the BMW would turn that Si into mincemeat...........even a 318 would have a chance....but it is light

naw 318 would have almost no chance of winning. In a straight line that is, bring in the curvies and i dont know what would prevail, the better suspension and RWD or the power. 318 methinks
