I can't recall where I read this, but I'm almost sure that my 2000 3.2 liter ES weighs 3,494 empty (without people or gas in the car). I'm not sure if that number is exact, but 3,500 lbs is a good number to use as the curb weight.

that sounds right, i read 3493 on msn, but on my dakota, MSN Autos was 400 pounds light, telling me 2825 instead of 3280 and i didnt figure that out until i made a trip to the landfill

01 ES 3.2, rated 222 at the crank, but you gotta remember that gtechs read hp with aerodynamic loss too, so i wasnt sure what anyone else had read, since 152 wheel hp shouldnt make the car go 0-60 in 8.16

That 0-60 sounds pretty accurate for a stock 3.2L.

Go to the local transfer station or truck weigh scales and weigh it.
Don't forget to add your weight as a driver to Gtech and hp formulas. Weight "as raced"

IMO, Even factoring for Aerodynamics, G-Tech reading only 152HP is kinda low. Wasn't it 220HP stock?
