They are probably on the back. Not all states require them on the front and back (at least I think).

Nice ride. The compression ratio must be really high for a 4 cyl. to output 280hp

No in Pennsylvania plates are only required for the rear of the car.

And its not that high of a compression. 8.4/10 with 17psi boost.

You guys are lucky, over here they are strict on displaying plates as we will be fined.

We have too much petrol theft & toll roads evasion!!!

non native English speakers generally tend to speak English more properly, - though not as fluently as natives...

the same is true of most languages.

High compression ratio is actually hard with a turbo motor. Generally with a turbo, you want lower compression ratios, otherwise it gets too hot in the cylinder and you get pre-detonation. Or you can run e85... Some guys run 10:1+ with turbo e85 setups.

280hp out of a 4cyl is impressive... How about 900hp though? Few other cars in the video include a 1300hp GTR, 700hp LSX RX7...

the idea that there is a Honda powered Mr2 is pun within itself.... never mind 900hp. It is like putting a Ls2 crate motor in a nissan silvia... wait they already did that a while back.
