Good for you! Now you won't have to be slow Ford Boy anymore.
well the park aveue isnt exactly fast either
10 seconds for a 3700lb PA is pretty damn good.

I vaguely recall the 0-60 video you posted of the Tempo..... something like 15-20 seconds?

Those were one of my dream cars back in the day but with the OEM rims.

Anyway yeah the PA is a huge step up from that tempo.

Eh.. my old 93 88 was the same with less weight and it couldn't get out of its own way. Rolly if you can get that beast to even chirp on dry ground I will tip my hat to you. That was one thing that car could never do.

it is smooth though. i just noticed what seemed like a sputter when the car was picking up the cruise control again on the highway. only did it twice on the whole drive. prolly does need a tuneup.didnt idle perfectly smooth. and yes, i want an intake also.

Edit, and paperwork is in. daddy got boost now
