does anybody know what these cars run stock in the 1/4 mile?

i just watched a probe turbo put down 175 whp and 243 wlbft (sae corrected on a dynojet)and the kid said he was hoping to run low 15's. i dont know how heavy these cars are but i think he should be in the mid 14's with those numbers and our altitude ~3000 ft i think.

his mods (as far as i could tell) were waste gate set at 12 psi, HKS (i think) bov, and intake

A PGT V6 is about 2900 lbs, if I remember correctly, and a 4-cyl model is 2690 or something? (I recently looked up the #'s for a friend)

Just some FYI for ya. Pretty light weight for a 2.5L V6, assuming that's what it is.

The V6 was the 3.0 Vulcan. Unless maybe they got the Duratec 2.5 at the end, but I dont think so.

The turbo was a 4.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I'm not familiar with the early versions and whether or not a V6 was available, but the last version of the Probe GT/Mazda MX6 had a 2.5L Mazda motor... It was also found in the MX3 in smaller displacement form.

Ok, here we go.

1989-92 GL, 1989 LX: 2.2L 12 valve SOHC I-4

1990-92 LX: 3.0L Vulcan 12 valve V-6

1989-92 GT: 2.2L 12 valve SOHC I-4 Turbo

1993-97 Base and SE: 2.0L 16 valve DOHC I-4

1993-97 GT: 2.5L 25 valve DOHC V-6

Looks to me like they DID get the Duratec 2.5 after all.

Probe never had the Duratec 2.5. It was a Mazda 2.5 (as it was based on the MX6) that was in there. Probe was replaced by Cougar in 99 which had the Duratec 2.5.

Same drivetrains in the Mazda MX6s. My roomie has an 89 MX6 GT. It's a 2.2L SOHC 12V turbo. Stock, they push about 140HP at the wheels and almost 195 ft-lb torque. He's got his boosted to about 12psi, and damn it's fast! (Love the sound from his HKS blow-off, too.) Actually, these engines are VERY reliable. Look around. There's a lot of them still running around and they're definetely sleepers.
