Wasn't the Ford 3.8 a bit bigger than GM?

From what I found it'* only 11 cc bigger than the 3800. 1996 T-bird = 3802cc 1998 Bonneville = 3791cc. So if I'm doing the math right, less then 1 ci bigger.

EDIT: According to the same site I got the info from above, the 97 T-bird 3.8 was 3797cc, 5cc less than the 96 T-bird

Either way, 3800 owns it.

ok well a ford 3.8 non */c will get its a$$ handed to it by a stock 96 sle (have done it many times to a kid with a full cat back, and intake), but my bro has a 92 T-bird SuperCoupe and let me tell u, that thing has torque comin out all ends so i'd have to say a 93 ssei would have problem keepin up with a t-bird */c w/o any mods, but any series 2 n/a is about dead even with a T-bird */c (T-bird runs 15.6 96 sle runs 15....


but i must admit that RWD T-bird can make some nice burnouts/donut trails...and they are really fun to drive so i have to say from experience that its hard to dis them, they are really nice cars
