Think of it like having a Honda Civic, with good exhaust and NOS on it, and having a Ferrari. Sure, the Ferarri will be fast, but the modded Civic will be just as fast, just cheaper. That's an example of the Celeron vs. Athlon.
okay.. i know i'm probably going out of line here.. but thats a terrible comparison.... adding exhaust and Nitrous will not make a honda civic go as fast as a ferrari.. and to get a nitrous injected system going is not cheap. You'd have to bore out your cylinders because the bore a civic has is so incredibly crappy, you won't be able to burn enough gas. And not only that.. nitrous is not cheap to keep refilling.. At least if you want a good one.. you'd need much more than that to make a 18 second car run 12's or low 13's....
On the other hand.. the ferrari will still have its warranty, and be fast under any condition, while a honda civics wheel base is not wide enough to get the traction needed to pull 1 g of force to pull a nice turn like a ferrari could
a much better comparison would be making a base model covette c5 to a z06 simply by adding the ls6 parts onto it
i'm sorry bout this.. i just don't like the misconception of making a car fast as being "easy". My friend had to spend a great deal of money to make his honda go fast...
