The 3.0 is incredibly faster than the 2.3 also. I destroyed my friend in a 0-60ish race. He I was at a light and he was rolling up to it goin like 5-10mph and he got there right when it changed and he wasn't ahead for a second lol. Both 5spds. His is an 88.

you need to race us NEW school guys, I can easily hold onto a 4.0 from 0-60 ... 65 and up I drop back a little, but I've never gone past 75 with one...

stock 3.0L autos suck. (period)
3.0L/stick against a 4.0L SOHC/auto is a little closer.. but still, 148hp/180tq against 207hp/238tq is a no brainer..
3.0L against 4.0L OHV is gonna be reeeeal close

So what is 0-60 time for the 3.0 and 4.0? My 2.5 will do it in about 9 to 10 seconds.
