drivers race, if anything i would say you would win because you have a full race header and motor mounts and are lighter then the ep stock for stock. but you do have that audio stuff so who knows. close close drivers race/how the other car is setup race. could have lighter wheels etc. Also if he doesnt have the 6 speed you will own him

Sounds like your friend is making himself a Euro Civic Type-R, nice. It may be a drivers race, but I'd give the Civic Si the edge. If the tires are smaller on Si, then his gearing will be better, but if you have the better header, then you'd be at the advantage. Drivers race and mods will be what matters, really.
