I raced another V6 Fusion!!

Yes, boys and girls... I've finally done it.
For the longest time I've been wondering how much faster is my V6 Fusion (will all the most I have) compared to a stock V6 Fusion.
I happened to stop on a red light (front line) next to another V6 fusion.
We both lowered our windows and after understanding that we both had 6 cylinders, we decided to give it a go....
Well, the green light turned on..and we took off! It's amazing how fast i started pulling on him.. all I know it that he didn't expect it. I'de say we were at it for about a 1/2 a mile before both of the lanes turned into one before the entrance to the freeway. By the time I reached the lane merging section of the road, I have to say I was about 4 or 5 cars ahead of him. Once the race was over, he caught up to me and gave me a thumb up...

I guess the Steeda Intake, Magnaflow Exhaust system, BamaChip 93 torque tune ... do make quiet a difference!
I'm sure as hell pleased!

Cool beans! I'm just waiting to see how we fair against the modded ricers! I hope the difference is as dramatic as the styling!

You should have stopped him and gave him this site name. Sounds like he could use some upgrades.

Re: I raced another V6 Fusion!!

It seems a little weird to me, (and I have nothing against fusions at all) but I just can't see two fusions racing down the street together... it just doesn't fit the mold of a street racer. The mods that you have done to your car though sound pretty nice. I wonder how a 2.3 liter Mazda3 with a catback exhaust and cold air intake would fair against you? (That's what I have done to my Mazda3.)

Too bad ours doesn't come from the factory like that. Hopefully ford will release a factory turbo on the fusion in the near future.

Re: I raced another V6 Fusion!!

Is the fusion on the same platform as a Milan?

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.

Yea, based off the CD3 platform.
