hp question

k i have a 97 honda civic dx and i was wondering roughly wut my horsepower was. i have a cold air intake,4-2-1 headers, a fuel pressure reg, 10mm spark plug wires, 2 1/2" exhaust pipeing "no cat", and a new distributor.

i live in the florida keys so theres no dyno for a 150 miles. im also putting on a port polished zc vtec head with a chipped ecu.

About 105-110hp at the wheels.

if i was you i'd be more interested to find out how much torque you had, torque's what get's you off the line and down the 1/4mi. faster.

i think i'd be lucky to have about 85hp with about 8 - 9kg of torque with my car, lol. YAY!

soon to be increased to 240hp with 37kg of torque .. good old 4G63T..

Uh, that must be crank hp because no way would a D16 hit 152whp with a few bolt ons.

Yeah, A full hundred? now, I think your underestimating, I would have said at least 600. especially with the BRRR... cold air intake and all.

Yes but not everyone is as stupid and knows as little about cars as you do.
