I won't get into details so I don't get into any trouble for encouraging somthing that rymes with 'feet tracing' but lets just say a 1993 bonneville se was lined up on a track and on a adjacent track happens to be a 2001 ford taurus 'sel' with the 3.0 dohc. And lets just say both vehicles took off at the same time would it be more likely that the taurus would end up at the other end sooner than the bonneville or vice versa?
**hopfuly I have worded it in a way that does not get anyones fender out of joint but if it does let me apoliges in advance to those who were offended and say I am sorry I tried my best to word it in a way not to encourage any activities**

It'd be close, the L27 would probably have it off the line, but the newer Taurus with the DOHC would probably catch up pretty easily...I dunno...I just hate the Taurus so much...

Crap I was afraid of that. I thought the extra .8 of displacement would help me out but I guess my grandpa wasn't all talk (he'* the one with the taurus lol) his taurus has the dohc which he mentioned gave it a better advantage which I knew but was hoping wouldn't make too much a difference
