Coming back from a night out tonight.... rolled up on a mercury cougar. I was in my 94 civic lx 5MT, quick car but nothing to fast. The light goes green and he takes off so i follow, but to my suprise i pull on him immedietly, hes really goin at it, i can hear his engine way up in the RMPs (for a ford..) but it confused me.... i was pulling away at 45+ in 2nd (?)

that guy must not have known how to drive or something, because the i-4 cougar pushes 125hp and 130lb./ft out of a 2.0, which is sad, but it's a ford. anyway, against your 106ish hp civic lx, it should have mopped the floor with you. just want to add though, that i love your car. i had one, though it was an ex, and it got killed. now i've got a 99 integra gs, and all i want is that old 94 civic coupe back...tear...

My guess is that the Mercury was an auto I-4. The power to weight ratio and gearing could help the Civic. Just a guess though.
