Not meaning to jack the thread, but I thought this was a pretty funny matchup too.

SmartCar vs. Ferrari. The SmartCar swapped out its original engine for a Kawasaki one.

Now I know this is an old thread, but I want Roman to explain why this Civic is so slow. Stock? Also identify it and such. And what engine could probably be in the minivan, or if it's actually even the stock motor.

Yeah if it was a stock motor against another stock motor, that would be lol.

I just can't picture having a sleeper minivan... that's gotta have some serious drag that you're potentially losing more horsepower than gaining.

It's true and not the first place I've heard of it. 2.5 turbo factory motor for a brief time in some of the caravans in the late 80s. was also an equally rare option in some dodge spirits.
