Actually, he's right. All Probes first and second gen, stock - are slow. Yes it's true. They cannot hold up to the almighty power and handling of the DSM. Big deal. My RX7 has a rotary motor which makes those DSM motors look obsolete. Can a DSM gain around 60hp from a turbo-back exhaust (without raising the boost?), no? It sucks. Can you gain nearly 100hp through only an exhaust and a manual boost controller with your gargantuan 2l caveman piston motor? No? Your wasting your money. Mazda rules, Mazda makes Probes. Probes rule. Thank you come again.
edit: Oh and I find it funny that he is basing all of his comparisms with his Probe LX 2.2L, the SLOWEST of all Probes. Maybe had he drove a 3.0L, Turbo, or the 2.5L his opinion would change some.
