'94 Trep 3.3L vs. 2010 300 3.5 HO

I currently live in Conway and work about ten miles away in Greenbrier. Highway 65 runs between the two with some amazing straight stretches of about 3 miles long with some gradual curves in between, any racers dream.

Any way I was on my way home last night when I spot this black and chrome 2010 Chrysler 300 with blacked out windows pull up next to me at the light. This guy had some exhaust work done because this thing sounded pretty mean. Light turned green and I sat there a minute to get a better look at the car. Well he apparently thought i wanted to race because he revved up the engine and took off.

I floored it and took off after him catching him about a hundred yards up the road and blowing by him doing about 75 down the first straight stretch. Headed into the second stretch I opened her up all the way and took off to the light doing about 125 with him tryin to keep up.

We finally get up to the light and he rolls down his window asking what the hell i had under the hood. The look on this guys face was priceless when I told him it was just a 3.3 v6. Apparently he thought with his 3.5 HO he could race anyone.

I hate to have to mark down this kill because I love the Chrysler 300's (that includes the 300m too guys).

Thumbs down

Congrats to you for whippin' his arse!

I like the 300's also, but prefer the 300M's. Although nice the 300C's look like a poor man's wanna be Bentley.

Nice kill. He might have had a bigger engine, but you are around 300lbs lighter, and have a much nicer look. All the 300's are is a box on wheels with a decent looking front end! First gen FTW!

Be honest, I lost interest once I read "I hit 125" All 3.3 Pcms were limited to either 108 or 115 mph. No ifs, No ands, Not Buts.

However beating the V6 300c is a believable deal. Its a heavy car. I can only imagine how much a dog the 2.7 is in it.

My pcm would have been limited to exactly those speeds. Had i not gotten ahold of one from a first gen interceptor with a 3.3 :-) no limiter.

There is only one 3.3 in existence that ever had a no limiter Or hit 125 plus. And I have alot of it's parts in my room. (so does Dave)

No 3.3 LH was a police unlimited Interceptor. Never. In fact there are rarely any First gen police cars regardless and all of those were the 3.5s. And the PHP 3.5 PCM has been tested on a 3.3 with no luck,

So please, don't try to fool one of Di.net's resident First Gen gurus, and especially one who owns a 3.3. Much less owns half of a Shelby Racing 3.3.

Fayetteville Arkansas did have a few first gen interceptors. Two of which had the 3.3. Even if the PCM didn't come stock as an unlimited PCM, they can still be programmed to remove the speed limiter (confirmed this with dodge). The fastest I have been clocked in my first gen at top speed was 130. That little maneuver almost cost me my license.

Oh almost forgot. I didn't want to start any arguments or anything with this thread. Sorry it wound up that way though.

how could you accurately clock your speed at 130, when the speedometer stops at 120?
