Welcome to the forum!

Those cars are COTM material. You should get some pictures up in the your rides section and see if you make it in for January.

Loving the Van!!

both motors have identical torque curves, (dif #'* of course) so response is the same
other then theres more of it the V8.
1/4 mile..........the 97, buy about a good length
add turns to the equation, and the 01 will eat up the 97.
as for the 2G'* with a 4.0 (and an extra 325lb over the nose) i think the outcome would
be the same, just less of a margin.** that V6 is quite nimble.


**only an opinion. send all "your an idiot" e-mails to.........................................LOL
