comparison

Although I bought this car for mpg reasons I think my contour se v6 would have no problem smoking the I4 fusion. Especially down low.

Re: comparison

Thats pretty good if you can out run 190hp stang in a 160hp fusion. The contour only has 170hp not sure on the torque and I wouldn't think that 10hp would be that big of a difference. When I lay into the contour it puts me into the seat. The fusion doesn't feel that way. But mad props it the fusion really would take it considering yours will take a v6 stang

He was actually talking about a Mazda3. Some of us forget that the lounge is shared between all the FMVperformance sites so people with Fusions and 3's both post in the same lounge.

My I4 beat a 3 yesterday. It was interesting to see two cars with identical engines going at it. On a side note, I want a god damn twin turbo.

Re: comparison

how much does the fusion weigh, that + tires + driver skill is what decided that race.

He has the old body style mustang, last generation I guess you could say. I tried taking the new v6 and got owned.
