Laser, let me begin by saying that the older Excels(86-89) with a 5-speed manual are the best performers out of that year range. The four-speed is widely spaced and the automatic.....don't even go there.

You seem to have a nice 94! I have an 89 GL 5-spd and all I have done to it was paint the interior trim silver and K&N oil and air filters. I have the stock exhaust, but I will soon be looking for an aftermarket silenced big pipe. I love my car, and it seems as if you do too! Excel owners, such as ourselves, need not to worry about the mags dissing Excels. Thats because they're used to driving quiet as all hell Bimmers and Benzes. Those mags dis almost every small car because of one little squeak or some small air nosies coming in. I usually say 'F*ck the mags' because they don't own one of these fine cars, so they can't say jack s*it! I believe that the Civic's engine is one of the most annoying and loudest out of all the small and sub-compact cars. I suprise people when I take off from a stop because they automatically think-'Small car, lawnmower engine.'

About your hp figure, the 94's had somewhere in the vincinity of 80-84, whereas my year had 77(some sources say 68, but thats not true.) So, keep enjoying and driving your Excel!<img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sleepy.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>
