The strange looking Neon part ring a bell?

P.S. own3d

So riceboypage.com is a leading authority on this subject? They preside over the meanings in the English language and its jargon?

I come to believe that RICEBOY is a matter of opinion. In addition, if there was a dictionary definition, I don't believe it would come from a individual who publishs a personal webpage.

Just for your information, I own a Honda Civic that will do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds, and will do (on longest final-drive) 148 Mph, I also used it to win the British Touring car championship Production class, With 9 poles out of 10, and 8 outright wins, and 18 class podiums out of 20.

Stop slaging off Honda's unless you can prove you can be faster....

First off congratulations on your championship year. On to the subject at hand.

I think if you take a critical look at this thread you'll only find one idiot who is actually putting down Civics. The other comments concerning them are not directed at the car but the person who owns the car. You see here in the states alot of cars, possibly a majority of them Civics, are "riced out". They're covered with stickers, have fart cannons installed, neon lights and a load of other crap on them that do nothing to improve performance. Then because the owner saw a magazine with a Civic that hauls ass they think that they have all the needed ingredients to do the same thing. But all they're doing is blowing smoke up peoples asses, posing as race car drivers and making themselves look stupid. And of course the cars they drive by association.

Not true but lets Drop this ok? EVERMAN TO HIS OWN GODDAMN IT. So one guy wants Looks, the other wants speed, the other wants his car to ****ing fly him to timbuckto and back and then drive him to 7-11. Ok? quit giving people shit for what they do? its not your ****ing car, its not your ****ing money its not any of your ****ing business. most cars can be made quick to fast within a good budget if you know what your doing and dont pay others too do it for you.

can you explain how to do this? as in what one needs to buy to do so, keeping in mind your budget of $2000.

Well i must start by saying that i dont have no damn lil honda/acura/hyundai. Hate those damn played out ass cars. I have a first generation eclipse. I also hate the 92 and up eclipses just for note. Especially the 99-up ones. And people dont have to spend 15,000 just to get the cars fast. my friend put 6,000 in his car with looks included and runs 12s. Thats a pretty nice investment. Im planning on 15k and my car will be finished looks and performance mods. The engine is 3,500 but is capable of 1000whp daily driving and the turbo'll be another 3,000-4,000 but after that ill only have the cheap crap. Ignition fuel and intake/exhaust. and they do it for looks (the spoiler) and i must say its an embarrassment to import enthusiasts like me to see these giant wings (with no reason by the way...at least mine is adjustable (and i will adjust it) ) and these shitty paint jobs. But oh well what can i say. There are some serious car modders. Just look on the cover of import magazines everywhere. Those people dont play. And they are really fast as shit -some of em.

yes since the engine comes bulletproof i could put the turbo on right away as long as i keep the psi low. So then id get the other crap and with a top investment of 8,000 id have a sub 10 sec car daily driver.
