Really Honda? No it's not. You have an econoengine in your Si, and though potent it is NOT a performance engine.

ZF Transmissions?

CVTs? As much as I love the CVT + Turbo combo on the CR-V, I would never claim it has a racing heritage of any kind. Zero, Nada.

Especially if they drop the V6 in the Accord!

The velocity at which Soichiro spins in his grave could power TOKYO, if that power could be harnessed! ;-)
