My EB is a '92 series 1 CFI. It has a 4 spd auto. It gets WOOOPED by a 3 spd auto '89 EA. I know his first gear is taller.. up to about 80k compared to my 60k but he still shouldn't be beating me this much, if at all.. Im just wondering if there is any common problem that could be holding me back so much. It really is fair slow compared to what I imagine it should be.

Re: Heres my EB

it should still beat his mates car, i guess? is his a MPEFI? even still, cfi 4spd should beat the mpefi 3spd i guess, because of the 4spds higher diff ratio.
