Default Weighed My EG Today!

So today I went and weighed my EG with a JDM B16a SiR II. I just went to the local quarry-probably misspelled sorry-and it weighed in a 2220 Ibs. I'm very suprised at the weight because its a '92 Civic VX, I gutted the interior except the dash and two front seats. I only weigh about 160 Ibs or so. (I'm a fat *** sorry!) I just would have thought that it might have been a bit lighter. Has anyone weighed there hatchs out there if so how much did it weigh?

My K20R powered EG Drag Hatch weighed in at 1980lbs with me in it.. I was 220lb, I'm now 190lb and the car has lost another 200lbs, so we have a track weight around 1700-1750lbs, yet to be reweighed though..
It has a 8 point Chromoly cage, one seat, custom 2gallon fuel tank, Drag wheels, lexan window, fibreglass hatch and carbon bonnet, plus alot of grinding done inside and under the car..

you got to remember that the vx weighs 2380w/full interior. so 2220 is pretty damn light!

vx's dont weigh 2380 with a full interior,
i dont know where you got that figure.

to the original poster, did you weigh it with you in it or with you out of it?
what kind of mods do you have, such as sway/chassis bars, aftermarket brakes, etc,

all that stuff adds weight

from a few different sites on google. i just assumed that was correct cause there were a few different sources that said the vx and cx weigh 2380
what is the correct curb weight then? and can you give me a site to back up your answer? thanx.

This was made by Tom B18C5-EH2

Okay, I see a lot of posts about vehicle weight and the differences between the various CX, VX, DX, and Si models.
I'd like to set this **** straight so nobody else is confused.

First of all thanks to Shawn Hayes here on H-T for hooking me up with the 1992 Civic sales brochure, which had all the specs for every 1992 Honda Civic available, meaning hatchbacks and 4-doors only since the coupe wasn't offered until 1993.

Anyways, here go the base weights as measured by Honda in 1992:

1992 Honda Civic:

CX hatchback: 2094lbs.
VX hatchback: 2094lbs.
DX hatchback: 2178lbs.
Si hatchback: 2326lbs.

So that's the weights of each vehicle STOCK.

Notice the exact same weight for both the CX and VX? This should dispell those "VX is the lightest" arguments. In fact, in theory would you not think the CX would be even lighter since the VX had light-*** alloy 13 inch wheels while the CX had heavy-*** steel wheels? This would leave me to believe a few different things:

Body for body (which matters more because you swap out the wheels anyways, I mean 13'' wheels, come on!) I think this may mean the CX is lighter still. The only thing I can think that would make the VX the sane weight but has much lighter wheels might be that the VTEC-E motor weighs more than the CX 8-valve motor.

Another thing is the gas tanks.

CX and VX has a 10 gallon tank, while the DX and Si have the 11.9 gallon tank. Keep in mind these specs are striaght from Honda, so regardless how much gas you've squeezed in your CX, VX, DX, or Si it dosn't matter. Honda probably only measures TANK volume, not the filler and what's already in the fuel lines, etc.

So you also see that the DX is 84lbs. more than the CX/VX. Why would this be? Here's what I came up with:

Bigger fuel tank - tank is steel, so bigger = heavier
Rear wiper/washer
More tar - seen it myself. DX has more tar than the CX/VX.
Side moldings - plastic, but still weighs more than the non-existent side moldings on the CX/VX
Rear cargo cover std. it weighs something, right?

That just might be the difference. Things like the cargo cover and tar, rear washer/wiper can be deleted to get closer to CX/VX, so it's not a huge deal.

You also see that the Si is one heavy PIG compared to it's other hatchback brothers.

One more hilarious thing here for you guys with Si hatches that say "coupes are heavy, that's why I have a hatch" which I see often, and used to say myself.

How's this strike you:

1992 Civic 4-door with manual tranny:

DX 4-door: 2275lbs.
LX 4-door: 2319lbs.

Why did I bold the LX 4-door weight?

Because it has power windows, doorlocks, cruise control, power steering, etc. and is STILL lighter than the Si hatchback! So what do you think of the coupes now? If the 4-door is lighter, what about the 2-door coupes? The DX coupe is a good deal lighter than the Si hatchback.

Don't get all pissy if you own an Si - I used to have one, but after getting beaten by others in CX, VX, and DX hatches with less whp I sold it to build up a CX hatchback.

So, does anyone else on H-T here have this kind of info on the 1994-1995 hatchbacks? I know they weigh more because they added another airbag in 1994-1995, and some Si hatches came with ABS too. All that **** adds weight.

One last thing to keep in mind here:

These cars were weighed BONE STOCK.

This means:

No A/C - was NOT std. on any hatchback in 1992
No radio - again radios were NOT std. on ANY hatches in 1992
Only Si had 2 mirrors std. Add the weight of a mirror if you got 2 on your CX/VX/DX
ONLY the Si had powersteering - the DX auto did too, but I didn't list that one. I listed the manual, which had no p/s
Stock wheels. VX had lightweight 13'' alloys, CX/DX had 13'' steels, Si had heaviest 14'' steelies with wheel covers

So think about all those things that we can take out of our cars to get the weight down. This gives you a basic idea of what your car should weigh with no A/C, p/s, etc.

Also think about what ADDS weight to your car. Stereo, SWAP, bigger brakes, swaybars, bigger wheels, strut bars, etc. So don't think your 1992 CX weighs 2094lbs. if you have 2 mirrors, A/C, radio, SWAP, etc. You might be over the stock weight.

thanx for taking the time and writing that up! i always heard the vx had a 8.5gallon gas tank. and finaly someone answered my question as to why the dx is nearly 100lbs heavier.

Tom is right about the coupes. So many BS myths about the weights of coupes and sedans.

Depending on year and trim, they arent heavy at all. My 93 dx (1st year coupe was made), still retains the sohc engine (so its helping me a bit), and weighed in at 2180 lbs at a local dairy weigh station. I have no fender lining, using slipstreams, stock interior except for one sparco seat, omp steering wheel, no ac, no ps (didnt come with ps). The other mods I have done wouldnt even effect weight. Point being, it's not even gutted, and that weight is with a full tank of gas. That was with the stock hood as well, which is now CF.

SI's come standard with AC, Sunroof and four wheel disc. Thats why it's heavier than DX coupes and four doors. I rather have all the features, too bad they don't come power locks/windows.
