you probably could take a regular 3000gt. A 3000GT SL is close to me. But i still spank them. a VR4, thats Willwren territory.

1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL 8.5 16.4
1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 5.3 13.8
1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 5.8 14.3
1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 5.3 14.0
1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 5.7 14.2
1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 5.4 13.5
1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 4.8 13.6


Totally depends on the year. A couple of us around here (MAYBE me included....still waiting to see) who might take a 97, but that 0-60 is downright scary. Quick off the line, but judging by that 1/4 time, they're loosing it at the top end.

I like how that last comparo between 3000GT years, look at thehalf second gain in 0-60, and then the paltry .1 sec in the quarter... Sounds like gearing to me, or the engine wasn't bogged at start....

Why doesn't he do the 3000gt up instead of the damn civic. Throw a twin turbo kit on the 3000 and that would just ROCK. Not a silly compact car...

Default well duh!

of course they got a power band... Cuz every honda car has a honda engine..

(anyone know how a power band works?)
When the bike gets 'in the zone' the 2 strokes (1..2) so the gases and the exhaust gases mix together in the crank case then when they get to the top of the engine a whole new pile of gas is waiting there so they expold together and bring somemore gas down into the crankcase.. thats why you dont got engine oil on a two stroke cuz the gases are everywhere.. really neat.. I found out a lot when I tore the top end outta my KX 250.. heh thats why early 2 strokes sucked because the gases would explode at the wrong time and at 16,000rpm do you really want an explosion in the crank case?
