Who do you think would win a race the 93 0r 2000 plus ssei? Yes, I know that the latter models are heavier, but they have more hp and torque. Isn't it 240/290 for my model? Let'* assume both are equally experienced drivers and all other variables are equal, is stock motors, good tires, etc...

First in the 1/4

second on the highway

I had a '92 ssei and it seem real ballsy, but at the time didn't know much about cars except that it was supercharged, fast, had a nice stereo, and had a moonroof!

Would my '92 have been as good as or better than my 2000?


Just a side note, I loved the look of my 92'* front end, but not so much the rear. You almost had to have the spoiler or else it looked lame IMHO. I think the 2000 rear end looks better, otherwise the both look sweet in their own way

Stock for stock, the 2k wins hands down. You can mod an older one to match a 2k fairly easily.....if you want to spend the money.

Mod for mod, the 2k walks.

the 2k has more top end torque, but if the 93 has no TC or anything that'll help. Definetly easy to make the 93 faster.
