Kind of two kills in this one. One for him, and one for me.

One of my coworkers has an 03 eclipse, stock. All he's done is new wheels and tires. I used to walk all over him with my supra and when I sold it and bought the escort he wanted to go again, of course. Wikipedia shows his [email protected] [email protected] and weight @ 2,822 lbs. Various sources rate the escort at 127 hp and 114 tq and my title shows scale weight 2,408 lbs.

Both races are from a dig. The first my car is all stock, have only owned it a few days. And he just walks away from me no problem. No contest.

Second race, I've got my intake pipe and cone filter and feeling pretty confident. This time it's the exact opposite, I just walk away from him.

I couldn't believe how much of a difference just an intake would make on this car, and no "he missed his shift" cause his car is an auto.

Might as well post this other one here too since both cars have the same engine. My friends 01 Diamante. Three lane highway, we're merging onto it, at about 1AM so no one is around. And it is uphill. He's behind me and I get on it, and I know he gets on it too and he's just barely keeping up right around 90mph is when he starts gaining and eventually passes.
