why is the 170 horsepower v6 sooo slow with the atx?? Is there an explanation?
heh yeah, that was my "arm-chair tech" response for the day...
HELLZ YA!Originally posted by: Lukydogg
The cougar was a substantial upgrade for me. Went from a 4 banger 83 celica with no paint and whitewall 14" wheels and 16 speakers ...to a 99 v6 with hell of a lot of dings and scratches with painted 16" rims and only 9 speakers...counting all the tweeters mind you.
So I guess im fortunate to gain 62 hp and paint.
It's not really that bad, the drivetrain loss is actually about 25%. That's still crappy, but if it were really 40% the V6 ATXs would barely be putting 100hp to the wheels (102 to be exact).Originally posted by: JScullin
40% drivetrain loss from the time it goes from the engine through the tranny & out the wheels.
well now you're comparing crank hp to fwhp. An auto civic EX will probably get about ~100fwp and sub 100fwqtOriginally posted by: mercurycougar
so my car really only has about 120 horsepower? thats bougus! a civic automatic has that much hp
