Re: Who would win?

I keep hearing so many horror stories about how slow they are I've actually spun my tires. Sure it isn't a Hemi I'm not paying gas, or purchase price for one.

Re: Who would win?

You'd both lose. You're trying to race a boring midsize sedan against a low end SUV designed for offroading.

Re: Who would win?

It only takes a couple tweaks and you have a day and night performance difference. Still not fast, but she isn't slow either.

Re: Who would win?

yeah.. the 3.7 isn't " slow " as a v6 mustang, it feels so slow because your moving all that mass with it. I had a 2.4 eclipse ( 4th gen ) and it weighted 3400 pounds ( yes.. a car that weighed 3400 pounds ) but .. because it was small, and nimble, it felt like that little 160Horsepower car could just walk wonders around anything. It's all about size, and weight. The 3.7 isn't going to go out and run 14's.. but it's not a slow truck, nor a fast one. If you get on it, it actually moves, it makes a lot of noise, but it moves.
"You'd both lose. You're trying to race a boring midsize sedan against a low end SUV designed for offroading." other than just being, whatever you feel that is, this comment has no meaning. Of course one of them win, no reason to make the other 3.7 owners feel bad because you think nothing is better than a hemi. If the guy wants to race a sedan, more power to him it's fun, just a bit of fun. when comparing it to other mid sized SUV's, id say it's on par

Re: Who would win?

I recently put plugs in mine, and found out this may have been the 1st time anyone did that. It took meybe a half an hour, and I'm even further impressed by this little motor.

Re: Who would win?

not true at at all, the 3.7 has plenty of potential, you just gotta wake it up, ive beaten many cars and trucks with mine at the local track(1/8th mile) and ive also gotten stomped on too: my latest victim was a 2012 VW jetta 2.5
