Question svt vs 2.3

Has anyone raced or seen an 2.3 in action? I know they have more power then a zx3. Do they give us any comp? Probably not but hay im diging the new body style (well the new front) and I have heard they do pretty good gas mileage. I have heard they also do pretty good when it comes to boltons. I mean that new cosworth kits are sweet. I ask cuz I saw a black with looked like black 18's on the free way flying past me pretty fast it was pretty sweet. I am now trying to find the car to race em. But the set up was pretty nice with the exhaust it sounded mean when it passed. What do u guys think?

If I were near you i'd meet up. There are a couple SVTF's here but non-that I seen post here (that I know of). The #'s are close but the SVTF is quicker stock for stock. Not surprisng since it has more power. But, you could say it could be a drivers race too.

So how is ur car how bad do u beat zx3's well if u race em. I have seen some other 05 2.3 fixed up on the net and a handfull around town they r pretty sweet. I would like to race one that has a lil bolt ons like intake and exhaust. (since I have short ram and factory header) Kinda would make it even ya know (well maybe not) hmm (well probably not but still ide like to see how it would hold up.

2.3 vs SVT

From what I can find by poking around the site:
SVT= 170 hp
2.3L= 148hp

So no, you don't need to sweat a 2.3L unless it's really been worked over.

Im not sweating bout losing to one have u found the torque of the svt and 2.3.
The svt is like 140 something but the 2.3 is 155 from what I remember. I think thats
a pretty good lil car. I was just asking what they r capeable off or if anyone with a svt has raced one or vice versa.

the amount of torque gains that the 2.3 can obtain with a few mods is impressive though.


regardless of straight-line capabilities, though, the SVT offers more in a factory package than any of the 2.3's. Suspension-wise, there's no beating the SVT, either (without a whole new suspension, anyways)

The 05 2.3 is 151 HP and 154 TQ. Just a CAI can add up to 8 FWHP, and improve torque too.

So how come every 2.3 That tries to race me gets there ass handed to them miserably?

* And I'm so damned tire of hearing this " I can bolt this and that to my 2.3 and be for real §hit".....my car is damned near stock and I kill your cars. Maybe all ofthe 2.3 owners in colorado just can't drive
