The Koup kills the Civic in looks and attention.
Civic SI (depending on year): 4.11-4.77:1 ratios -- great for acceleration!
Imagine a Koup with 4.77:1 ratio in 1st and 2nd then 4.11:1 in 3rd - 6th. Would accelerate nicely...
For those that don't understand gear ratios...think of a ten-speed bike. Which gear is easier to get going with? Obviously 1st because it has the greatest numerical ratio -- same thing applies to cars! The higher the numerical ratio the easier it is to accelerate.
