i agree, the chances of them boosting the hp are slim to none. any idea on the actual release date?I hope Honda doesn't get chrome happy with the front end tho. It won't make much of a difference for me since I have no intentions of trading up for a 14 si coupe, but from what I can tell from the teaser pic, the rear looks much sportier and finally gets 18 inch wheels, which is a huge plus. Hopefully with the larger diameter will come more width for more grip on the road. 18x7.5 would be appropriate.
As far as performance upgrades, I would bet my money that they will make some tweaks to suspension and steering, maybe thicker sway bars, bigger brakes, tighter steering.
This is a long shot, but I hope Honda will give the new Si a lower center of gravity, as the current Si's sit off the ground like a jeep lol, why so much wheel gap for a sporty car?? A lower center of gravity will certainly reduce body roll that the new Si's are known for. Don't get your hopes up that honda will give the 2014 si 20+ more hp, just not gonna happen lol, but who knows, maybe I'm wrong.
We will know for sure next week!
