Well, last friday I lost to a '94 Saturn SL2 in my '94 3.3 Concorde. Oh well, at least I have an excuse- too much wheel spin. Bet thats the first and last time you'll hear the in connection with a 3.3 litre. Honestly, it was rainy out that day, and my friend's SL2 is soooo weak that even at WOT throttle the tires wouldn't break lose, where as mine broke at about half throttle. the guy was a friend of mine, and we have a re-match schedualed fo this weekend

??? How did you lose? I smoked one (or more) of those before in my 92 New Yorker with the 3.3.... I test drove a newer one once...think it was about a 2000....It was a joke. It had to work to get some speed. Lousy 1.9L with 132 hp. The dealer asks me what I think after we had finished the test drive. I said it was noisy and my New Yorker has more power. You want 17k for it? No thanks, I'll keep my NY'er.

An SRT-4 should take it ;) You're not gonna beat an Ion Redline in any Intrepid without nitrous.

The Vue Redline will take any non-HO 3.5L Intrepids. The ION Redline has a supercharged motor.

Good luck.

The Vue redline looks like a ****ing ricer-burner. The other one just looks ugly.

I dont know the vue redline seemed pretty slow to me. Its running 250hp which matches up to my lhs so id be a good race. The ion redline is only 205hp so even the intrepids could beat it with a few mods. And its true, at the end of the day its still a frickin saturn.

**id say the ion redline take all lh vehicles based on these stats
but they look like plasticy pieces of garbage
it also has the center console driver display which i HATE
i would much rather have a calibert srt4 now
or a civic si in that range. the civic si has a way more refined chassis and better engine in the k-series.

is just me or do most saturns look like crap after a couple years?

Oh, the High Output 3.5L would take the Vue, I was talking about the normal 3.5L.

The Ion Redline is listed at 205hp (along with the Cobalt SS), but in reality make 218 on the dyno. It doesn't change the speed or anything, and I'm sure an Intrepid could beat it with some mods done. But then again, it all depends on what mods you do to it.

I chased a kid in a cobalt ss a while back with my r/t. I kept on his ass but he didn't know how to drive. On the highway from like 60-100 it would be pretty close I think. I definitely couldn't have beat him in a drag race, they weigh nothing and those 4 bangers wind up quick. In a drag race he would have been too far gone by the time my power kicked in at like 3000rpm.
