If you look at many cars including the Civic Si DOHC, the wheel HP is much less than the published. Also, keep in mind, honda HP is Peak at over 7000 RPM. They have no torque at the bottom until the VTEC kicks in. My 99 prelude was a terd on the bottom until the 5000 rpm and the cams kicked in, it wasn't usable. Nissan motors have linear torque curve thats usable. Build the motor and you will have good bottom end, mid and top. Don't get discouraged, remember, this motor when opened up, is responding to mods well. The head needs some TLC, but other than that, it can be made to compete.
