Tiburons are a joke. Even the "GT" model only has a 2.7 V6 thats making like 180hp or something like that. The base model has a little 2L four banger puttin out 130hp. And they weigh like 3000lbs and some change. Not a performance car by any stretch of the imagination.

I agree... I they could have done alot more with the body style... Too me it just looks like a souped up rwd grand-am. I cant see my myself paying $35,000 for it.
It lacks the style to match the 300+hp engine they slapped into it. the designers could have done better if it wasn't designed by someone's grandmother.

Just my thoughts..

Yo JCCR...you *SURE* it was an SRT-4? Despite the fact that they're Neons and FWD...both of which is pretty rough...they are pretty damn fast. Could it have been a look-alike-wannabe or even an SXT slug? A Z32TT will probably beat it anyway, but it should have done alright.

Don't think so buddy...

Tiburons are weak.

The 4.6Ls in the GTs are SOHC 4.6Ls. And...the GT mustangs are actually surprisingly light...around 3100lbs...about 300-400lbs lighter than a Z32.

I agree. Big engine...decent performance...looks like poop. It looks better in person than it does in pics, but it's still a far cry from anything you'd wanna write home to mom about.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

Sorry man...He should have killed you. I don't know what happened, but they'll run VERY low 5s to 60 with mods...mid 5s to 60 stock...the na Z32 is not even close to that.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

i don't know, thats why i think i have a z that is quite a bit faster than a stock n/a z. but all i know that i have aftermarket is cat-back exhaust, i still have the stock airbox, still the stock exhaust manifolds, still the stock ecu (still has nissan sticker on it).

are you referring to the STI??? everyone knows the STI hands down will beat a n/a z32. it would more than likely even take out a z32TT stock for stock.

freak...i think this is what you raced. the WRX sedan is 227 hp and 217 ft. lbs. of torque. AWD, turbocharged and intercooled boxer engine. pretty tight little bugger.

you also could have raced this but i dont think it would have pulled on you. maybe AWD and lightweight abled it too but i doubt it.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

So do NA z32 run low 14's? They must if they are beating on WRX's with a few mods.

A SRT4 will run anywhere from 14.4 to 13.9 depending on year (LSD) and driver. I figure a properly running Z would take it.

GTO's are muscle cars . . . a plain car with a big motor. Vortech just came out with a supercharger bringing HP close to 500. Not bad for a conservative looking car.
http://www.vortechsuperchargers.com/news/2004_gto.html

The new Mustang GT went to a 3 vavle per cyl (oppposed to the 2V GTs 96-04) and new intake manifold. The chasis is better as well. It is on the same platform as the Lincoln LS which is a small car.
Despite the improvements at best it will be a 13.8 or slower car.

n/a's do not run low 14's, closer to mid-low 15's.

does everyone think there is only 1 WRX offered? there are many different options. the STI happens to be the top of line. there is a a sedan model which only pumps out 227hp. also, the WRX is a rally car form of the impreza which offers another 4 different options (2 station wagon options and 2 sedan options). all of these look identical to the WRX and STI except for they are missing the big ass hood scoop that you can barely see over.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

you guys are thinking that i was talking about an sti? if i did race one, i would of said that, but i only said a wrx. and j greene, i didn't beat the wrx, i said he pulled on me slowly. i still say there is some mystery left in my n/a that i don't know about.
