Default Beat a Lumina with my AUTOMATIC Civic!

Yea so this morning on my way to school i raced my friend and his lumina... beat him by about a half a car length. Both of our cars are automatic and damn that felt good. How much HP do luminas have? I know he has the 3.whatever litre lumina .

You drive a Civic are you surprised! lol jk. Yea, a while back I my self had to take a fella to school who was driving a montey carlo, (similar to lumina). He thought he could take a little 1.6 but what a mistake. He had me on the low end, but once the V-tec woke up he ended up smelling the byproducts of my engine.

The base lumina's had a 3.1 rated at 160 to 170 horsepower. The Z-34's had a 3.4 d.o.c.h. rated at 200 to 215 horsepower. I have had a 96 monte carlo Z-34 and a 94 grand prix gtp, (pretty much the same cars, different bodies) both with the 3.4's. They were peppy engines, but sucked durability wise. I could take a stock or near stock mustang gt from stop light to stop light.
