Default Killed Intrepid

I was racing my gf'* parents and they have like a 96 Dodge Intrepid. I have heard those cars can fly, but they can't. I have no mods on my car other than the plugs and wires, and I smoked their car. PLus i had a leak and my exhaust, which made me lose ALOT of HP.

I talked to a guy who has a newer Intrepid (2.7), and I mentioned they were sluggish, but he said they are very fast. I didn't tell him after that that I killed one a couple weeks prior.

Nice job. Now just slap a new performance exhaust on that baby.

my brother had a 2000 intrepid as a rental when he destroyed a grand prix with his excursion. the grand prix was D O N E forevor, excursion needed some new trim pieces and the bumper/brush gaurd got scratched good.

it thad the 2.7 and he let me drive it, that thing was a DOG. off the line it was like a metro, once it wound up it was decent, but no way fast at all. i know they came with a 3.2 that year, which im sure have a little get up, but the 2.7 belongs in a neon.

96 was the "old" style, either had a 3.3 or a 3.5. 3.3'* were slow, really slow, right around the 2.7 slow. the 3.5'* had 214hp so they had some get up, was probably the 3.3 if you wasted it with a series I 3.8

not a big fan of intrepids or dodge for that matter, except for the SRT-4 Yeah I have heard they can be fast, but honestly I'd pick a bonnie over an intrepid anyday. My friend has a blue neon that'* actually rather nice, and that thing can move. I saw a spoofed up neon destroy a viper, of course the neon was running high 11'* with spray and the viper was running high 12'* without, just basically stock. Some things can be fast if ur willing to invest time and money, but u had to ask yourself, is this car gonna be worth the money I put into it, if it'* a bonnie then yes.

i remember this guy at work had a 94 concorde 3.5 (same thing as a intrepid) and he was telling me this racing story he had where he beat a brand new accord.

the whole time i laughing my *** off, not because i thought the accord was faster or anything, but the guy was 64, he was retired and worked at home depot part time to pass the time. He was a cool old guy though, every sentence had F'in this Fin that in it.

good times, good times

sad, but very true. dodge intrepids are extrememly slow from the get go. i own a 97 intrepid with the sucky 3.3L. but when i'm around the 35-45mph mark and i punch it. i'm gone. i have no trouble after getting to that speed. its not a prob max it out a 120, but it takes for ever to reach to 35-45.

I seen this pro street neon at a local used car dealer that ran 9'* i said why do you race it? he said we built it as a joke to another freind who said you cant get a neon to run under 10sec without a turbo or nitrous they did it it'* all motor

i'm rather confused on why anyone would really buy an intrepid when a 300m is right around the corner... i've driven a few intrepids and i wasn't too impressed... bonne all the way.
