Default A quick acceleration test for my car.

Hey guys, how's it going?

I did a quick test as mentioned above, recorded it in a video and uploaded it on Youtube. Check it out yo



Slow for today's standards for a 6 cylinder, but it goes well against modern natural aspirated 4 cylinder cars!

No use doing that!

The motor itself by design is so underpowered and is not fit to take a turbo without so much trouble and money!

Best choice is to replace the whole car!

I would have to agree. When my car gets to a certain amount of miles on it I trade that bad boy in and get another car.

Not everything money can buy... love for example...

Huh?

Anyways

I may be Saudi, but I'm not really rich

I keep this car for its durability and quality, not performance. It is designed to run forever if maintained correctly, the way I do now!

For a +20 year old car like this one, it drives like a dream!

If I wanna do some work on it to have a decent output, it's gonna cost me at least +$2600 USD for parts only. Enough to buy a way much better car if added to the selling amount!

Oh, I can get married if I get this amount now

I agree with you, but if it is about having much more extra performance, it will be not reviving, but inventing

I did revive this car btw. I restored the transmission, replaced the rear axle differential, upholstered the interior with the ceiling and so much more!
