    How fast are the turbo Honda's?

    This guy was telling me his Honda will do 78mph, is he full of it or can they be made to go that fast. He is the service manager of the local Honda dealership in town. He was drunk at my bar a few nights ago and started telling stories, I was just wondering if this one might be true.

    I would say that he is full of krap.

    I was in a Honda dealership last year and heard a salesman tell a customer that the RXP would run 80mph stock.

    But then again, you never know.

    Wow i never thougt you could use those three words in the same sentence. lol

    I'm just kidding. Even a stock honda is faster than my ski right now (cracked tunnel 2nd time) lol

    I think it would actually be neat to see one of those things doing 78. But until i see that one i call BS.

    I think the fastest Honda's have not broken the 70 mph mark yet.

    Stock, the 3-up does about 60; the 2-up is a couple or few mph faster.
