is it really delayed? cause civics arent the fasted things out there so it might take a second or two before you really feel the car jerk you back if your flooring it.

Haha, it's a civic with a d16, get used to it. All low powered cars take a while to gain momentum and don't speed up until they hit the blunt end of the powerband. If anything, just make sure your car is tuned up, and secure the throttle cable to the butterfly by tightening the nut if it's loose on the throttlebody.
