A friend from school has a Ford probe 1995 Gt manual tranny 6 cyclinder, was wondering why he didnt beat me since i have a stock 4 cylinder celica 1992 ...plus i got way more milleage than he has....He basically started to catch up after 60 mph...was a car infront ov him the whole time

Was wondering if it was normal for a celica gts stock to beat a Ford Gt 1995 ???

Yeah probably.... they're geared longer... which would explain him starting to catch up after 60. But they're probably pretty similar. You drive better than him?

could be also, anyways im impressed because they have 160 horsepower with a 6 cylinder vs a 4 cyclinder 135 horsepower...

Probes suck but I have herd with boltons and upgrades they are pretty cheap to run 13's and the track. I'd never buy one though. 160 hp out of a V6 if very lousy, I'd expect atleast 200.

You know i've never understood that either... When cars come equiped with v6's and are suppose to be performance oriented and make less then 200 "crank" hp that's just..... well crap..
Heck the 1mz isn't even made to be a performance engine and it's seen as high as 210-220 hp.

Another example of a lousy v6.
Hyundai Tiberon 2.7 v6= 170 hp

The probe still makes more hp/liter then the 5sfe does stock for stock for those complaining about the power.

The probe is a bit heavier, so I'd say it's down to the driver.

Second Gen Probes suck. They should have stayed with the turboed 4. It was quicker.

I also own a 1st Gen Probe, which is my current project, Finished product will look like this:

Plus som Lambos.

There's a Mexican in town with a mid 90's Probe GT V6. He said he could beat me, but it was slow.
