hey guys, i know this can be taken as a sensitive subject for some. i'm basically on the fence about this. i've always been a fan of the gti, in any form mk1, ii, iii, iv, and v. i was just wondering who has won the battle over the years between the civic and gti. i've done a lot of searching, and i can only find comparison test between the current model, mkv, and the si. honda has gotten so much attention through the import tuner scene with the eg, and ek models, and now with the new k20. i'm basically just curious as to which car has put down more hp with vr6 swaps and things of that sort. i've viewed a couple of videos on youtube.com with civics going against vw's, and the census goes either way. either there are a bunch of praise for vw's, and hate for honda's, or vice versa. does anyone have any good reads over the course of the gti platform, either in road and track or any other import magazine, in comparison to the civic? which car is faster? and has the case always been that way? websites or online finds would be great too.
