I have had a 94 PGT and a 99 Cougar V6, both have the 2.5L and all in all they are quick but for a V6 160-170hp flywheel stock kinda bites, though I did get the Cougar close to 200hp with mods, but I really wanted a quick 4door car...enter SVTF ZX5 =)

The Probe has a totally different motor than the Cougar. Probe's have the Mazda KL03, the cougar the Duratec. It was based largely on the KLO3, yet it's totally different. Just to redeem my 94 Probe, it'll walk all over the newer cougars and has, mainly because a 94 PGT weighs in at 2815 pounds v.s. the cougar. at about 3K, and there isnt nearly as much smog junk on it.
If it was a 2nd gen Probe he raced, in stock form they put 160 ft lbs down @ just 4000 rpm, & 164hp@5600, redline's at 7K. (0-60 in 7.5 - 1/4 in 15.5 range)

I'd be willing to bet my Probe GT can take my SVTF. Too bad I cant drive both at once.
Dont freak out now, I admit that if they were matched the Probe might go down.
But the Probe has: intake, headers, exhaust, STS, clutch, aluminum flywheel, while the SVTF is stock.
I'm just saying, thats all one would need to do some killing.

But he said he was racing a 1st gen Probe so this is all irrelevent anyway. It may have had the turbo for all we know, and those are slightly faster than the V6 Probes.

I'd like to know how you all beat a 5.0 stang. Maybe I'm reading the thread wrong.
