wow, I was expecting some faster times for stock v6's based on the seat of the pants feel of my 4 banger vs my vic. My 97 vic (previous car) was running 15.9-16.2 depending on outside temp (I ran it a lot hehe). My Milan actually feels more powerful than the vic did.
And hell, if the advertised hp rating is accurate, it IS more powerful than my vic lol (i dynoed the vic this spring, 151hp 189tq)
Dynos are done to the wheels.According to your Crownvic dyno, its making about 15 hp and 55 lbft(!) more than your Milan. Now it does weigh a lot more so the hp advantage is pretty much inconsequential. but that torque is what matters, especially at the dragstrip.And the fact that the Vic is rwd. Its gonna get off the line a lot better than your Milan and run better times at the track. In fact the V6 is only making about 10 more hp and like 10 lb ft less than the vic. It's only *slightly faster* than your old car at the strip(some people havent been any faster).
FYI, im making mighty close to 200whp and just now can I hope to break into the 14's when the conditions are perfect. :/
