Ok...i've just recently have gotten into car **** and all, and so far i'm still running stock autotragic<img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>, all i have are vinyl side graphix and neons for the interior...

I was at my cousin's birthday today, he lives in the typical rich white suburbs here in jersey...most of the kids there have bmw's, corvettes, or souped up imports...one of the kids had a civic ex or dx not sure(the one with 127hp stock), and from reading all these forums about how our tibs can easily take all civics other than Si's...so i'm like...i'll tear you up...we go up to about a 1/4 mile strip(just a bit less) and it's on...i told him i had stock, but didnt believe so had to show him what's under the hood, but unlike me he had full exhaust and cat and headers plus cold air(plus he's stick)...

i thought i still could take him...so we're off...we're neck and neck until the end...people say he had 1-2 ft on me...but i thought it was even....i felt all bad for talking that trash...<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

well an hour or so later, in my car i'm just cruisin around, speedin around and goofin, and my cousin points out i'd get better speed if i'd turn off the a/c...then he asked was it on when i raced the civic...i'm like yeah, it was on 4(full blast)*(hey it was mad hot today)....he goes that looses 15-20hp...i didnt know that...is that true?

well anyway i tell that kid with the civic, and tell him to race me again, and he was like no, he seemed kinda shock or scared, i dunno....do u think that the a/c would of made a difference...

well anyway once i get a few more mods i'll be happy...i'm still learning<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

YES that would have made a huge difference. I can actually feel the difference in power with the a/c on/off. You should have felt the hesitation, but hey..you know for next time!! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
