Default 94 ssei vs 94 v8 thunderbird

I decided to race my brother the other day, before any of us really had any mods. I had my dynomax exhaust on but other than that, pretty stock. He, as well, had a stock 4.6L setup.

Well, we only had a short strip to race. I beat him off the line and stayed ahead for the rest of the way. We made it up to about 70mph. We raced again, just to give him a chance to make up his loss. He beat me off the line this time, but I came up from behind and beat him by about a car length. I was surprised at this win since my car has 140,000 miles on it and he has 100,000.

This made me feel really good with my car. Now I have all kinds of add ons and I bet I can kill him even more than before. He now has a dynomax exhaust and hypertech chip and running a 0-60 of 6.9 sec but I run a 6.55. I love my car!!!

Beatiful Bonnie. How do you feel about that Dynomax exhaust. How does it help? And how do you feel about those Potenzas?

I loved the exhaust as soon as I got the car. Then I got really annoyed with it and wanted it off cuz it seemed too loud for the car. Now I like it again. Nice throaty sound to it. I didn't notice a huge increase in HP becuause I had only had the car for about 2 weeks before I got the exhaust and wasn't used to the handling and power yet.

I love the tires. It took me, literally, 2 weeks to pick them out. I had to find the perfect tire for the right price. $100 a tire wasn't bad. My uncle who works for a tire company couldn't even get me a price like that. The handling is awesome. I can't even leave rubber with them like I used to be able to with my michelins. They are so sticky. Although, since my superchip, maf screen removed, spark plugs, and new sc, I have been able to leave rubber.

I must use this power wisely!!
