When I opened this thread to view the last post I thought "wow, a Camry. thought this was a Civic thread". Then scrolled down to see an actual Camry then realized what I first saw was the Civic

Because we all know what can happen if we don't closely monitor all 201 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque in this high performance beast.

Meh, it's probably going to be no faster than the k20 version. Rev limiter is lower and only has like, what, 4 more hp? Probably weighs more now too.

The gti's power is also underrated, its atleast 210 hp just like the one in europe, add stage 1 and you're looking at 250 hp and 300 torque.
the golf actually has 177 lb ft of torque.

They have a VTEC light because you're not going to feel the difference.

They don't even offer any good looking OEM head-lights(HIDs?)/tail-lights for a premium

Ugly looking car...

Honda has been going down hill since the late 90's. They used to make some fun cars like the prelude and crx. I dunno, the Fit might be their best car now.

The new SI is uglier and perhaps lighter than our GTI but if Honda wants to keep up on the market with Vdub either stops the joke with their cross breed conscious /performance SI or get a Turbo..
The GTI is what you want!
