maybe you have some more space in the engine bay so you can add a turbo kit as well? and an injen cai of course...in 1.8 eurocivic there is not enough space for turbo kit, which makes me a little sad...

1.8 can't be sweeter :) - HONDA's 1.4 perfect minimum giving you maximum, even without any adds for song :cool:
Boys, 1.4 is 1.4 and 1.8 is 1.8 and 2 with turbo is a rocket on wheels.
So far and looks to be for long 1.4 gives the oportunity to achive far more than allowed limit in Hungary and other ??? just to driver's skills.

it was a joke about being sweeter lol, thought that was clear.
As far for the rest of your post, not really sure whay you mean :confused: its not only the top end power of a petrol engine which says it all but also the entire rev range. But i havent driven the 1.4 so cannot comment on it. I do know the 1.8 is silky smooth and the engine is very relaxing to work with imho, and occasionally, the power above 4000 RPM is just so much fun.

I guess that you wanted to say that it is a top NA 1.4 petrol enginge, which is not... take a look at AURIS Hatchback 1,33 Dual VVT-i (101 KM) 6 M/T ;-(

clear, and was no boring from my side at all. And if I would not have 1.4, 1.8 is the next engine I had.

what I mean, Honda made an interesting and responsive engine (1.4), that gives you the possibility to drive economy, fast, if necessary, and no case create feelling of bobtail.
I am sure! 1.8 and 2.2D even more is easier to drive (torgue, acceleration), but believe me with 1.4 you have even more fun understanding that motor makes more than one could expect looking on the tech. papers. You have to try it to understand.
You won't be pressed into the seat hardly, but motor breaths are noticable after 2, 3 and 4.1 rpm, can not explaine why, may be due to ignition moments. High way speed up is also not a ? for it without shifting down to 5th.
With other words, I would say Honda made a good balanced motor that just, even less 1.4, but still a motor.

words are poor facts but still it is my opinion as the driver of this car.

I guess that in metric system this is litre/100 km - however the other way round ;-)

Strange question, not. Usually, I do not speed up in a city with red zone tacho. :p (quickest are police and emergency by us, they have :police:)

once on 1st gear made city (pick time) - 11l !man
usually:
city 6.8-7.4
high way -6.3 (115-125kmh) -7.6 (150kmh), mainly 6.8 keeping 130kmh Budapest - Vienna

bulbs on, clima in auto, winter t. Conti T810., rear snow.
snow and hard wind add 1-2l going on high speed.

lowest was 4.1l, but I think that was miracle :D

not possible in my sweet 1.8....recently I got 9 l/100 km on the 140 km way between two Polish cities...but my driving style was the less eco i.e. ignition up to 150 and brakes, brakes, down to 60-70.... :VroumVroum02: so the vtec takes what it needs :pepsi:.......... but I do not care that much about mpg... and going back to the thread the injen would probably lower a little gas consumption i.e. increase mpg...
