See, my car is as slow as molasses rolling downhill in January.





The Tempo, on the other hand, is slow as molasses rolling UPHILL in January.

Well i guess i feel really good about having a 6.6 second 0-60 in my car then. There is no way i could put up with anything slower than 7.5 seconds.

No offense, but you need to learn how to work a stopwatch if you're coming up with 6.6 seconds for your car. a 4,000 pound 260 ft-lb of torque car who doesn't even make substantial torque until AFTER 4,000 RPM isn't going to be that fast. All sources show 8.2 seconds as being the 0-60 for an AUTOBAHN aurora 95-99. Yours isn't even autobahn. Lets not even mention that the 2nd generation weighing in more than 200 pounds lighter than the classic are rated at 7.6 seconds. Your mufflers didn't add more than 1-3 horsepower, neither did your K&N filter. Even the 94-99 L67 Bonnevilles weighing in a 3,600-3,700 pounds aren't that fast and they have a helluva lot more power than the 4.0.
