Q45 V8 and a 5 speed. Not bad.

Not as easy as an LS into one, but what the hey, she sounds good.
When i got out of the Import scene they just started doing the LS2 swaps in the 350Z's, but was VERY costly.

Come on guys.....Everybody knows that having the fart can muffler at an angle helps the rice burn for efficiently.

I have to tell you guys I am no big fan of the importie rice drifter dudes but there are MUCH more than just fart cans put on stock Hondas, these guys are HOT RODDERS in every sense of the word. Not far from where I work is a little shop that just opened and there are HOT RODS coming by there for sure! A group of Infiniti G37 coupes came driving down the street going there the other day, holy crap what hot rods these things were!

Don't knock them dudes, many of these little four cyl Hondas would blow the ever loving doors off your 350 Chevy powered rod!

both, but i think a lot of it is to clear the speed bumbs and driveways, because they are hanging lower because of a body kit.

the fact that alot of these cars are very badazz is lost on a lot of older guys.
I always say, they go as fast or faster than your chevelle, but when they get to the end of the track they dont have to slow down to make the turn

Oh hell yea. Those cars when built right can be fast and fun as hell to drive. All while still getting good gas mileage! But its expensive! Not like building a chevy. If you dont have the money then you'll end up with a car like half the hondas in miami. Loud autozone fart can and a body kit. We all know that adds at least 300 hp right?

You forgot the 747 sized wing on the back. That adds at least 100 hp.

In most cases (not all by any means) when you see an import with a fart can muffler it is BONE STOCK with maybe a body kit. Yes they can be made to run fast but it takes deep pockets to do it. The ONLY reason to ever own an import would be so you can drop an American V8 in it. Even a small block chevy would do.
