Yea, i saw the video, they need to throw them around more, they can handle so much more!! And with 18"s, common. I wonder what rubber they put on the 18s?

In the video he said, "The 4 cylinder doesn't put out as much power as teh v6". :dur:

WELL DUH. Last time I checked 4 doesn't equal 6.

I'm not getting another fusion until they make it a V6 AWD Manual. I've been looking at the tremec t-5 manual transmission that they used on the MRT T-5 fusion, it's like 1900 for it but it'd be nice for the person that's got the expendable cash flow to do it.

I can't wait for 201X when they come out with the Fundeo or the Mundusion or whatever the new Fusion/Mondeo is going to be called lol.

Hmm, well I'm going to be forced to give up my Fusion early next year. So hopefully by then we will see what the 09 Fusion will look like. If it looks great, and that 2.5 4 banger will have near 200 hp and its hybrid I may have to wait for that.



I will just go buy a used manual transmission ford probe and beat it till the 09 comes out.

Yea, ive decided to give up on the CD3 platform if I cant get a good transmission either. I love my Zephyr but the obvious weak link is the single minded trans. Even the MKZ cant do 0 to 60 in under 7 flat because of Trans. It sure isnt the engine. 263 hp is PLENTY. A audi A4 quattro which weighs the same does 0 to 60 in about 6.5 seconds WITH 63 LESS HP just because of the better trans. Cant even dyno the [email protected] car correctly because of it. And wont let you mess with its programming een with an XCAL tuner. Just plain takes all sportiness that should be there away from it.

According to Audi's official site they claim 7.1 seconds and it weighs about 200lbs less than a MKZ. So it's a bit of an exageration to blame the trans for that much performance.

The next gen CDs will have the 6F instead of the Aisin though, so hopefully that will make you happier.

Car and driver got a 6.7 out of their A4 so that is what I was going buy. Im at work so I cant check all the stats right now on the weights but ive seen some that are pretty close depending on options.The MKZ should be quicker though.If you look at 1/4 mile times in magazines(15sec even), it traps pretty high. Like 95mph. But it just cant get out of the hole it seems. There is no reason the car shouldnt be able to run 14's with a 95mph trap speed.

What transmission is the 6F?And by next gen, do you mean after a complete redesign or do you mean with the refreshning thats supposed to happen in 09?

The 6F is the Ford/GM joint venture trans that's in the Edge and Taurus, as well as the GMC Envoy and I think the Aura.

The refresh isn't really 09, it's early 2010, but it will be in there.
