couple wins and couple loses

today after school a friend of mine was going to race this dude with a black auto zx3 focus (he has a 94 4.6l mustang) and i was going to watch them...the dude in the zx3 said it was turbo'd but he lied)...well the three of us met up at the local bowling ally and this other dude in a sentra ser came up to...we all went to a gas station next to a two lane highway and waited for the signal to turn red...then it did we lined up mustang on far left black zx3 in middle and me on the end and the ser behind us...we did a rolling 5 mph start..of course the mustang came in first and the ser in second, i came in third and the black focus last....then we did another run at a different place but this time at a dead stop....the black focus had no chance, all 3 of us murdered him...anyway i was dead even with the s-er in 1,2, and a little of 3rd and then he pulled on me...anyway that was my fun for today

easier saying:
Mustang- lost-2
S-ER- lost 2
Focus- Won 2

btw i knew i was going to lose to the mustang and S-ER..actually i wasnt going to race at all but decided to at the gas station

No such thing as a 94 4.6 Mustang... The base was 3.8, GT was 5.0 and the Cobra was 5.0, just with more power!! 96 was the first year of the 4.6!!
Nice kill and loses though!!

What year se-r ? Was it the newer ones or the old sentra style. He started behind you and still passed you?

it was a newer se-r, i think maybe a 02 or 01, the new body styles that all i know...ya he still passed me (on the rolling start)...i had a crap start though so i think thats why

...and i believe they made the 5.0 an option on the 94 mustangs but came standard with a 4.6 b/c a 95 only came with the v6 and the 4.6-8...it might be different since you live in canada but im pretty sure here in the states it was an option in 94...looked under his hood and it was a 4.6...but not 100% sure about it..have to look it up

...but i had fun...layin low for a while b/c i have an oil leak somewhere..i believe its the valve cover gasket b/c that's where it looks like its coming out (hopefully)

The 5.0 was standard in the 94-95 Mustang... The 4.6 was introduced in the Mustang in 1996... It doesnt have any difference to the fact that I live in Canada. I have friends with 94 and 95 GT's with 5.0's in them. The Cobra even had a 5.0 in it, but it had some better parts on it. Since you really do not believe me, go to that site i made a link to, scroll down to the 94-94 Mustang part and it even tells you the 94-95 Mustang still had the 5.0...

Heres another if you need further clarification... But I got 2 pop ups which is nothing!!

LOL, it is pretty weak for a 5.0... But also the 96 4.6 L only had 215... The Mustangs of that era were never really that powerful, thanks to low flowing cyl heads, intake and a crap cam... And if im not mistaken the 93 only had about 205... The engine was designed for low rpm tq... long runner intake, smaller valves!! But with a bit of work, that engine can be a beast... Up to 500rwhp that is, then its a ticking time bomb and can split the old block in half at any time!! HAHA....
