My younger brother seems to think that his 98 Taurus SHO can't beat anything on the road. Now, mind you...he'* only ever raced wussy v6 Mustangs and car'* he knows without a doubt that he can beat. Such as corolla'* and cavaliers.
I laugh at him every time he says that under the hood of his car lays a Mustang V8. Ford SHO'* have a 3.4 liter V-8 and very weak tranny'*. I work for Ford and have seen many in my service department. BUt none the less it is a V8. Would I have any type of challenge on my hands racing him?? My Bonnie isn't modded. What do ya'll think?
I also own an 88 Iroc with a 5.0 and a 5 speed. And yes it'* very modded. He thinks he can beat that and his car is bone stock. Ha Ha!
It would be close. Those SHO'* can run a sub 8 from 0-60. Your stock 92 SSEi runs the mid 8'* I think, then more if you need a tune up. Only way to prove it for sure is to take it to a track, where everything is equal. Get a smaller pulley and for sure you would smoke him, unless his SHO is modded up.
