You might wanna try to get newer than 95. My mom has a 95 and it is kind of a dog. Not much low end. I'm not sure if all Auroras have that problem or not.

The Aurora doesnt have the low end tq that the 3800 has. What it does have is top end power, when the 3800 stops the Aurora 4.0 keeps going. It can stretch legs way beyond the 3800.

Stock for stock...keep yer pants on

However, the 3.71 gears in the Autobahn equipped is very high revving and has good get up and go, but the intake and exhaust is VERY bottled up...almost choking. Once its opened up a bit, its a whole different beast.

Fixed The gearing is nice when you've got power to push it. Once you get the power going about 3k then you feel it, But you don't off the line, it'* about as midrange as you can get. Nothing silly high RPM like VTEC kicking in, and not crazy low end grunt. Good all around car.

Your exhaust opened it up? Glad i drove it with the magnaflows... They sing on 8 cyls...
