I have a question for you guys before I race this guy. What do you guys think will have an advantage of winning??
1999 Olds Intrigue 3.5 - no mods or my
1996 Intrepid ES 3.5 with K7n and air restrictor removed
Wow. Hardly any difference at all. Its going to come down to the gearing in the car, driver ability and how much wieght the driver brings to the party, along with a host of other things. Definatley a "driver's race."
Doode, My dad owns a 98 Intrigue. Is there different engines in them? I forgot what specs it is. Well, when i got my 97 trep, I was pretty sure he would beat me if we raced. But with my mods, I would probably beat him. That is definately a drivers race for sure, I think it will go back and fourth as you 2 prgress through the gears.
I can answer some of that.
The Intrigue is frount wheel drive, engine mounted transversley [different from ours]
And, it is a 4 speed. One advantage is that the Automatic shifter has 1 2 3 O N R P on it, O being overdrive [obviously] so they can shift through the gears almost like the autostick. almost.
Ive never got used to driving the Intrigue, I dont like it kause its too easy to drive, no feedback. So, I have no clue weather the tranny is set up to be better.
i can answer this cuz I own an Intrigue....They are nice cars, but the 3.5 powered ones need A LOT of room to stretch their legs (all top end)..........but the 3800 Intrigues will put the smack down on a lot of unsuspecting folks, even though (stock)they have 20hp less than the 3.5
