By a CAMRY! Didnt know that specs till after i raced him. The 07 camry is just as fast as the 350Z. I had him on the eighth mile becuase of the torque. after that he just zoomed right passed me. Only mods i got are IC fan and mac CAI on my 89 XR7

had test drove that upgraded camry when it came out and was pretty impressed it was that fast.

One tried to mess with me on the highway the other night, I put a car and a half on him. I was extremely surprised that the camry did that well, I didn't know these performance versions existed.

I dont really think theyre a "performance" version. Thats just the way they are coming out now. Its just the optional 3.5L v6.

The one I came across on the highway had what looked like a factory body kit or at least front and rear lips, I don't think it was just the SE with the v6.

was in the XLE model. can't remember which sportscar he said engine was in/for. if memory serves was a dohc. bet that car'd be nice with a small turbo.

they have a BIG weight advantage.

Yea, 38xx lbs is a little too fat. But it corners better than any other car ive been in.:cool:

Imagine that thing with some kind of FI. Id say an easy 12 second car with low psi.

^^ BUT ... the Altima is still only a front wheel drive which is not ideal for off the line work.;)

I still love my 89 SC, but the truth of the matter is there are a lot of stock sedans that can blow it away (335, G35, IS350, Genesis, etc).

Wouldn't it be nice to whoop their butts and tell them that our car weighs that much! They would just need to bow down to the badassness

It would be very cool indeed, but I've come to realize the fact that cars like the 335 can get huge gains with a simple ecu flash. Sure we can try, but it ain't gonna be cheap. I wouldn't even mess with any of those listed with my stock SC.:o

what you all think? Sine that run in with the camry ive done some mods. I put in a 95 blower with a SCP 5% pulley(8% overdriven). removed 100 lbs from the car, along with the mac CAI and innercooler fan. (car is running perfectly by the way) Chance at running with the 07 camry xle at this point, or shall i wait to call him back out for a rematch with a couple more mods?
