Sorry, but I just dont see a 1st gen 3.5 beating a second gen 3.2 without the 1st gen having been modded. And the 1st gen 3.3 will think it was going backwards against a 3.2. My 3.2 is quick and I cant see a 1st gen beating it! I do 0-60 in 8 seconds flat and I have an intermittent cyl 4 mis!!!!! Imagine a 3.2 in tip top shape!
Normally I don't get into these. Which is faster debates but FollowingNFront says he "just can't see it".
I just can see anything either but I've raced my buds 3.2L ES about 10 times and they were so close you can't tell which one is faster. In the car my 3.5 is torquier but spins the tires the first few feet. The 3.2 feels like it has more top end but when the cars are side by side it's a whole different storey. Dead even.
At the track I'm pretty confident the hook up is what let me beat him by 2 tenths of a second. I'd pull out about a fender length and hold it all the way down the track. His time ticket shown him as 1 mph faster but looking out the side window during a drag race this is something you will not see. Visually it's the same storey. Side by side and timers by the hundredth and mph's by the decimal place separate the 2 cars.
I started this thread to keep from cluttering the Street stories kill list thread.
