You haven't been around long enough to read all the hate going on. You need to bone up on your reading FNG, do a search

I hope so man....we're all in this thing together you know. Truth be known I was considering an ST as a second ride but I needed a truck. Maybe I'm the one that's hating because I don't have a 2.3, lol

When I posted this thread I was hoping people had some good storys to tell us. So far we have had some number comparisons and a couple of arguments turned good. But if u have a story or seen tell about it.

Well, I have a good story to tell you. stock SVTs get eaten by my 2.3L all the time. I'd have to say that there are about two or three around here who think they can smoke me, and I just pull on them off the line and keep on pulling. There is only one around here, Supercharged who bones, the f[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] out, other than that their not that quick. Now if any of you lived around here, I would give you the honor to see a 2.3L ZX3 bone out on your SVT. And I wouldn't have any problem lining up with a SVT w/ intake and your so called stock header.

Sounds like u got a pretty good set up there man. Just one thing DONT TRY TO START ANOTHER LIL QUAREL AGAIN!!! (hm probably misspelled that hm oh well) Cuz then we will have this big argument between alot of svt guys and alot of 2.3 dudes. That will kinda kill the point of the thread. Lets just here some good stories. Now do u race stock svt's or ones that have the same bolt ons as u.

He, he...I'll be back in December, might have to make a road trip out that way
But being straight I have had a few run ins with 2.3's wanting to test their mettle against me and it has always turned out bad for them. That was at 6,300 feet in altitude too. Drivers make the difference I suppose in such close pitted races but when you have to hit he brakes to let them catch up for a friendly thumbs up something is amiss. I've never launched on a 2.3 either, what happens is I've had an owner fly up and get on my ass without reason then when they pop into the next lane I get a huge grin beacuse I already know what the outcome is. Raced a few from a dig then one from a huge roll on the highway. I'm sory but they were never in contention. My wife has raced me many times and she tells me that I tend to race much more aggressively than most other people as far as going for it so I dunno. I'll probably be in the market for a new engine soon because I love to beat on it. Too bad I'm in Korea now...I miss driving games

* not starting shite either, just my stories
