How modified were these cars? I can find it hard to imagine _any_ FWD Civic keeping pace with _any_ Porsche!

That's amazing!

hahaha, this is the same pre-conception that many people including myself made. How can an FF car based on a 4door sedan compete with Porsches and Lotus and EVOs, etc. But it did and it did frequently pull faster lap times than those 'super-cars', all confirmed by official timing from the Sepang Circuit which is FIA certified. Honda Rules !! :)

Hi WongKN, thats a mighty impressive performance from the civic. Do you know exactly what sort of modifications were done to the engine to squeeze out so much performance? I can't imagine keeping up with Elises in mine!

Culicine,

I am preparing a technical coverage of the car for the near future and I will reveal as much as I am allowed to on what the car was prepared. But really, other than the things which would make the car illegal to drive on the road (roll-cage, etc), the MME wiining Civic is not that much different from the one you are driving. Of course you won't be able to take a Lotus Exige with your car but then again the two cars are not in the same class (and price range) for the road anyway. Still, it goes to show how good the basic Civic is.
