yeah, but a torque peak of 7500rpm, and the peak only being 153 ft-lbs means that there is no more than 153 ft-lbs at anywhere point in the rev range, and last i checked, 153 isn't that much. and our engines produce around 4/3 that at less than 1500 RPM
I'm talking the Accord V6, not the S2000. I do acknowledge the S2000'* lack of low-end power.

Honda is coming out with an updated S2000 - perhaps the S2200? It'* no 2.0 anymore, but a 2.2 now, making a bit more hp - and - more torque at lower rpm. However, this means that the redline and hp/L have gone down.

Quote:
the S2000 redlines at 9,000 RPM, the 350Z redlines at 6,600 if i remember right. and there is no way the S2000 wins over the 350Z in anything but revs. S2000 (2.0L inline 4): 240 HP @ 8300 RPM and 153 ft-lbs of torque @ 7500 RPM (1/4 mile time around 14.8 sec.). 350Z (3.5L V-6): 287 HP @ 6200 RPM and 274 ft-lbs @ 4800 RPM (1/4 mile time around 13.8-13.9 sec).
The S2000, does, however, win out in the handling department. I have this video on hand of a 350Z vs. S2000 vs. M3 vs. Boxster + R34 Skyline GT-R camera car battle. The 350Z won because the Skyline blocked the way for the S2000 (which rode the Skyline'* *** on every corner, with higher corner speeds) and M3. Put the 350Z on a diet, and well, you've got an even better handling car. Some describe the S2K as a four-wheeled crotch rocket

oh, i thought you were talking about the S2000 given the way you started the post. and while the S2k may handle better (i can't say because i haven't driven one, but i have driven a 350Z) the 350Z is an amazing car and handles quite well as far as i'm concerned, and it is quite stable at high speeds (which don't take long to get to i might add)

I figured you were excited which explained the 65 - 1/4 mile thing. I'm sure you miss your Bonne...I would too! :(

But your LeSabre still hauls a$$ which is nice. You can get it to 240hp no problem.

I raced a riced Accord on a city street about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I passed him around 1/4 mile later around 100mph. And I was in a 45mph zone That was crazy but I had to race him. I yelled out "Got Rice" right before he waved me on, and I chased after him.

Oh, and yeah, that 100mph around the 1/4 mile is accurate...BUT I was at a rolling start going around 20 mph I wish i could get 100 in the 1/4 from a stop.

it might be 264 HP because honda might want to keep the 120 HP/L bragging rights

Well either which way it comes hopefully theyll work on the driveline cause it is pretty weak if you start moding it.
