3.0 Domination *LOOK*

SOOO....

Theres a kid in my auto class with a ranger and he likes to talk a big game,
so today he was going on about my inadequate 3.0 so i decided to settle it once and for all, infront of my auto teacher, and 21 students. The only college class to ever stop for this...

Me: 3.0 5-spd 4:10 31Spl Torsen
Him: 4.0 SOHC Auto 4:10 (supposedly LS) 8.8 28Spl



Needless to say, the 3.0 has a little more respect amongst my fellow classmates

*THIS IS IN 2WD*

if your 3.0 could do that cant wait to see what my 2.3 can do, because they are basically the same power wise, and my 2.3 is alot peppier than my old 3.slow...

The continentals suck just period, so thats what would get me Im planning on some meetier tires down the line.

I have 4.10 limited slip, only thing i could see being a disadvantage to is being a reg cab and being a tad lighter as well.
