Talking My 323is vs Ford Taurus SHO......

Well, I was at a set of light in Oakville in my e36, and the lane beside me ended soon after the lights.....I took off normally, I didn't even know this guy wanted to race and pull ahead.......Well it wasn't a challenge at all, just went through 1st and 2nd and thats all that was needed......Those SHO's are a bag of

I used to drive one....not the highest quality car and expensive too. No one knew how to fix it [not even the dealer]. The engine was pretty unique though. They don't have a great low end but do have a decent top end....for a Ford.

oh yeah, I could understand in the 325e, he would beat me in my e30, but my 323is has a hell of a lot more umph then my e30.......I can assure you it wasn't even a competition.......

i know a e36 m50 runs the quarter in the low 15's

dont be making fun of the taurus
its not a bad car
its just a ford

i got a taurus that runs the quarter in 16.2

the sho runs it in about 15.5

so a e36 m50 motor is not gonna beat it by more then a car length
and thats automatic
