yeah, theres no doubt it can hang with 3800. im glad ive got an SSEi now. hes still slower [watch, as i point and laugh at him]
For that motor and all the other forward gears, it'* a great all-around ratio. If around the time, lockup happens at a very low speed, I can cruise around 45 mph and I am doing maybe 1k. It WILL leave tiremarks from a standstill, though not very far due to TM. A full exhaust will shift lowend torque to the midrange and when coupled with the command-shift makes for awesome on and off-ramp escapades
If you want SSEi-eque power, shoot for the SS...it has like a 3.69 ratio I think, and gobs of lowend torque.
Welcome, downwardly mobile yuppies, to the dawn of the Age of Nefarious.
1993 SSEi - FrankenJinx - dead and gone.
1994 SSE (136K strong) - 180* t-stat,HD alternator, most unequipped SSE on the club, XM radio, Kenwood CD/MP3.
2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx LTZ - Custom 2.25" manifold-back exhaust w/FM-80. Probably the only Maxx with this system.
