Here's some stats for you.
1989-92GL and 89LX had a I-4,12v sohc 2.2L, 110hp@4700rpm and 130lbstq @3000rpm. 1990-92LX V-6 12v 3.0L, 140hp@4800rpm and 160lbstq@3000rpm. 1989-92GT Turbo I-4 12v sohc 2.2L 145hp@4300rpm and 190lbstq@3500rpm. Don't know the weights or 1/4 times for the 1st generation Probe.
2nd Gen Probe 1993-97. 93-97 Base and SE models I-4 16v dohc 2.0L, (93 only) 115hp@5500rpm 124lbstq@3500rpm (94-97) 118hp@5500rpm 127lbstq@4500rpm.
2nd Gen PGT 93-97 V-6 24v dohc 2.5L. (93only)164hp@6000rpm 156lbstq@4000rpm (94-97) 164hp@ 5600rpm 160lbstq@4800rpm. Weight is 2900lbs, top speed "according to Ford" is 132mph. 0 to 60mph 7.5sec, 1/4 mile: 15.8 at 88 mph. 4 wheel disc brakes. The 93-95GT models are easier to tune than the 96-97GTs, they have less pollution garbage on them. But, the market doesn't sell a lot of performance stuff for our cars. We can get Headers, exhaust, filter, Cold Ait intake, pulleys, fly wheel, sparkplug wires, Springs, and Struts, that's about it. Well, one can save some money up and order the J-spec motor from Japan, it has 197 to 200 horses. I love the way my car drives especially around cruves with p225/50VR16 tires "stock GT wheel size" it's fun.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
