Funny you should ask -I just got out of the drivers seat of the 99.
We didn't do any side-by-side comparisons, but the owner of my old 99 drove the 95 and we both agreed that I have a stronger low end grunt. He said he'* jealous of my shift kit too.
Otherwise, he has a 3.4" pulley, CAI, 2.5" HF cat, Magnaflow muffler, and a 180* t-stat that really makes things happen in the middle of 2nd gear.
To give an idea of how the two compare at the 1/8 track my PB in the 99 without the HF cat, was a 9.794 @ 75.38 mph. 60' on this run was a 2.347. Track temps were in the low 60'*.
My 95'* PB without the smaller pulley and new belt is a 9.590 @ 72.10 mph. 60' for this run was a 2.225. Track temps in the 50* range +/- 2-3*.
He'* going to the scale to weigh it in now, and in about 10 minutes I'm taking my brother'* 97 SSEi there. It'll be way over weighted because my brother has about 100 lbs of junk in the car now.
