It was DOHC cause I wouldn't let her get anything less then that. Now I didn't have my Miata at the time so I'm only going by feel. My Miata feels like a rocket compared to her Del Sol. Shrug car just didn't seem that fast to me.......

i can't say that i've driven one. as for a "properly setup FWD car", please. the amount of chasis tuning needed to play to a fwd layout obliterates it for anything other than track duty. EVEN if the car is DW.

i DO like the honda motors as a driver's motor. torqueless maybe, but it works well for their FWD products.

WTF is up your ***? do u understand that a HONDA doesnt need torque?? with 120 lbs of torque and 180 whp they will break high 12s. Thats all I wanted to say. I personally drive a miata and love it and would take it over any HONDA but It deserves respect for breaking sub 13s in the quarter mile even if it has 100 lbs of torque dont you thiNK? whatever im done with this thread.
