So i was coming home from class tonight driving down a city street thats about 5 lanes wide and this old p.o.s probe pulls up next to me at a light, so i take normal and i swore i heard him really trying to pass me. So at the next light i said to myself i'll show him and totally smoked him but he had a slow reaction time, so at the next light he said, lets try that again. By this time i was cracking up it almost wasn't worth it but i decided that i have to put this poor fool in his place, by the way it was all rusted out and had stickers on it to make it faster, who knows if he actually had anything done to it. So told him get ready as i saw the light turn yellow to even give this guy a chance, the light turns green i drop the clutch and i'm gone by the time i hit 4th he's no where around, i'm just like what the heck was with this guy, and go on my way, it was a kill but i just thought i'd let you all laugh along. :twak:

Lol, if I think of it, I'll try and dig up a picture of a Probe in a monster truck rally lineup. Seen them crushed twice. I just need to remember which sites and which shows...

Probes...

I have a 94 Ford Probe 4 cyl. and it was slow as hell as a manual...automatics are worse...but then I realized it had a mazda motor in it, did about 1000 worth of mods to it, and i'm now running about 200 hp to the front wheels, and it is about a mid 12 second car. I actually have smoked a few cars worht bragging about...a 93 RX-7...late 80's supra...several porches...

200hp and a 12sec car its kinda hard to belief. then again i could be wrong.

Did you say $1000 or $10,000...cause unless it's a $1000 250hp nitrous mod...there's no way to get that car into the 12's. With the weight of that car and 200hp you'd probably have to have the crap gutted out of that thing to get into the 12's. I had a 93 Probe GT (V6), with intake, exhaust and headers ($1000+ in parts) and stock mustangs were flying by me like i was standing still. Please clarify, you're really asking for a flaming session with comments like that :bad-word: :liar:

Juggalo, quit BSing, you have a MX-6 LS. There is no way you could spend only $1000 and put in an F2T or FE3. Those are the only motors that would get you close to 12's without spending more than the KBB value of the car.

Even still...the mx6 had the same motor as the probe, ask any tuner he'll tell you that unless you have the 93-94 motor you'd have to spend thousands just to raise the horsepower 20% without nitrous. Even still, the aftermarket for that car sucks big time...so to get 200rwhp with a mx6-ls would cost a bundle...just my 2 cents.

Actually, nowadays I bet you could get another 30hp from a Probe for $1000 if you know where to spend. A 200hp replacement can be had for a little over $1000 including ECU. Recent research into manifold design has led one enthusiast to creating a mold of a intake manifold that could possibly increase a KLDE's power by 20hp, and he's said the cost may be $400 per unit. Another group of enthusiast has created an RPM based unit to allow drivers direct remote control of when their VRIS solenoids open and close, a must for anyone who increases their runner volume. More and more companies, some run by Probe or MX-6 owners, are emerging and coming up with new solutions at relatively low costs.
