    Edit: 1085 - 1235 according to the service manual (1150 would be the average)

    Wait, your serious? Whatever your source is, it is seriously misinformed.

    I wouldn't trust rego. My rego says my commodore is 1350kg, and i know it to be 1590kg... epic fail.
    I like luxury. It's the new performance.

    I am going to have to wait to work out my exact criteria a lil further until i work out and do alot more research in the next 18 month just how serious I am about going down the boost route with the 3G or not - because if i dont, another factor with my next project will be getting one boosted at the lowest cost and easiest way when selecting a model...as well as the previous other criteria

    I missed this thread so I'll just say galant . Yea some EG in Singapore is faster than a GTR, but I bet there are a bunch of faster Galants out there. Down side is you're far less likely to find a clean n cheap galant than civic, and realistically the EG is a lot easier to source a larger range of mods for. But then, it's slow until you buy the bits.

    it sure would be! Looking at the poll, I have seen many a civic turbo but as for how EASY it is i would need to look into a lil further. Aftermarket bolt-ons are a big yes, and staying with a honda would be good too....

    A former 3rd genner from here has just bought a GTX Familia. 1.8T, AWD, lockable diffs from factory. His has 160kW atw and for something that cost him less than $5k (not sure how much less, don't remember) the thing is so sedate when you're driving it normally. Warm it up and open the throttle though and wow.
