SVT contour kill

Alright I was on the freeway coming home from a friends house after watching the pistons, too bad... But anyway I was driving down the freeway it was pretty empty suprisingly and a saleen mustang comes and blows by me first. Then I see a SVT contour coming up following so I decide to play along and have some fun. I pull up next to the contour its four kids 2 guys in the front 2 girls in the back and he is giving me the thumbs up so I do the same, then he drops gears and starts rolling away. I wasnt ready that time. We come out of a interchange and I'm ahead of him on the roadway not racing. So I see his headlights lift a little and he starts to pull behind me, I dropped it into 4th and he pulls up next to me and gets a little lead, we are going about 90-100 now, and I put it into 5th get to 115 or so pop it into 6th the whole time I'm right behind him and then at about 120-125 I pull up next to him and wave as I pass him. After I get about 2 carlengths ahead I shut it down, we both slowed down and he pulled up next to me and asks "that thing supercharged? I never thought it would be able to beat me" I just told him what I did and we pull off a ramp and talked for about 10mins and departed ways. I'm not a usual racer type, most of the time I go under the speed limit I'm kinda worried about my car and other drivers, but I had to see what the contour could do, I was suprised I pulled on him.

Man I would've thought otherwise. You have some mods on your SVTF? Anyways, that sounds like fun!

Yeah I thought I was gonna loose but hey I guess the passengers and probably a couple other weight adders he had gave me the edge. Right now all I have is the K&N aircharger and a ground wire kit performance wise.

the nicest part about that kill is that when you were done, you both stopped and talked after with a sense of respect.

I Agree. That's the way it should always be.

Hey man once again congrats, maybe he had some weight but a kill's a kill.

what did the contour have done to it..b/c the svt's governor is at 110-115 (at least it was on my brother's)...and he had to have other stuff done because i could beat my brother's contour with only him and his subs, and he had a bosal exhaust and a cone filter (he sold his contour to his fiance's mom, i'm going to miss it ) he just bought a scion tc non/sc, and we've been waiting for it for 7 weeks...anyway good job on the win..wish my car could go that fast, but soon enough i'll be able to go faster, hopefully

When I beat an SVT Contour he asked if I was supercharged too, we might have 30 less horsepower, but they weigh 3200 lbs w/o driver. Wouldn't even be a race if we were supercharged. Also, there isn't a governor on the SVT Contour. I've been in 3, and my friend's stock one tops out at about 145, they have more torque and have a bit higher top speed than the SVT Focus. Good Kill

I'm kinda shocked that a contour svt would top out at 145 my dad used to have a subaru loyale non turbo and around 100 hp and it would go about 140,... but it did take a while
