Pretty silly to come into a kill section and post a "I killed a such and such" story without knowing what exactly you drive.
Your Stratus looks rather stock, other than the nice shiny intake, and there is no way that just an intake modded 1st gen Stratus will beat up on a 1st gen 3.5L, or any 2nd gen. (The 2.7L 2nd gens might give you a win.) You'd probably do well against the 3.3L first gen cars.
Not raising the BS flag yet, just need more details.
The new Stratus R/T won't keep up either- my uncle has one as his employee car (courtesy of Chrysler) and even though he was able to get off the line a little faster he said I blew past him like he was going backwards through the intersection.
2000 Stratus R/T`s with a stick they will stay with a Intrepid R/T. Up to about 90mph after that the R/Ts will walk away from them. The auto`s are much slower. I have raced both and driven both. The stick is very hard to shift fast it wants to jam up between gears. It is like the early 80`s Dodges sticks very hard shift fast with out jamming up. The jap 2.5 V-6 is a dog the 2.4 I-4 is much better i had a 98 Stratus it would walk on any stock 2.5 V-6. Look at the numbers it has only 3 lbs more torque at 500 rpm`s higher and only 13 more hp but over 250 pounds heavier car with the V-6 . I raced many V-6 Stratus`s and Avenger`s never lost a race. I am not bad mouthing your car the
Stratus handles very good in the turns it just never got the motor it needed the 210hp 2.4 turbo in the Mexican Stratus R/T. It was a much faster car.
ok, here's the info you guys want, I know for a fact it wasn't an R/T and I don't think it was an ES either, I have a 95 2.5L V6 stratus and your right all I had at the time was an intake, and it was only like a 2 block stretch, he got pissed and left

Maybe you can answer this question for me. This might sound like a stupid question, but it has annoyed me for some time now because I don't know the answer. Why do they call the Stratus (Cirrus, Breeze) cloud cars??? Thanks.
yeah the stratus and cirrus are clouds, what the hell is a breeze? anywho, what is the base intrepid? I didn't see any markings on the rear door by the window isn't that where the badging is on treps too?
