1989 Mustang LX vs. 1996 Honda Civic EX


     For some reason there is a huge misconception about what is "fast" is. There are many people who think their Civic, Integra, Neon, whatever is fast. For the most part it doesn't matter what they do to their engine there is no substitute for cubic inches.
 
     In this test I am using a 1996 Honda Civic EX, and with a body kit, fire extinguisher, and air-fuel mixture gauge, its bound to be fast right?
