I agree, he's a tool. The Fusion is severely underrated as far as the V6 goes. I have never driven a car that pulls like this when punched at highway speeds. Even my mother's Mark VIII doesn't pull like my SE V6. This guy is even bashing the legendary SHO, which was an extremely quick and high tech engine. So what if it's a 4-door sedan, so is most every BMW. I don't see you bashing them. This guy obviously has the I-4 if he even has a Fusion, which is a good engine, is nothing as powerful as the V6, especially after it's PCM has been flashed with new software.
A late '90's slowstang only offered 210 horses. That was pretty pitiful for a cammer 4.6, although they did sound tough.
I'm a mechanic @ Mel Hambelton Ford Wichita, Kansas. I'm 19, didn't go to "school" to learn what I need to know. I like SHO's, but I wouldn't race one. I have the 06-11-whatever reflash. It's an '07 Sel fully loaded, w/Eibachs, K&n, 15% tint, debadged with a billet grille and TIS Dropstar 20x8.5's on the way. So don't give me any lip that I'm a tool and don't bag my knowledge just because of my age. These are 16 second cars people, even on a good night. It's personal opinion that I think they are too nice of a car, at least most SEL's to be scooting around messing with other obviously faster cars. Granted kill stories are all good, but what are you gonna say you beat, a Honda Civic?
Here's a few proofs by the way.
