My Girl's 300

My girlfriend's 300 is CRAZY fast. The car flies. It makes this WAAAA kind of a roar(like the new Z's/G 35's) and it's like a rocket. My 400 runs okay, but not like that. Downside. Her car gets HORRIBLE gas mileage. I drove all week in my 400 for $20. She drove two days for $20. Weird. I'm wondering what the guy could have done to her car? Does the car have an airflow meter like the old Z's? I remember my mechanic cranked the meter up on my old Z, and it was the same deal; very fast but it sucked up the fuel. She's not too happy about this. She's a student and waits tables for small money, so the gas is a big issue.

Well I have 2 sc300's. one is a 2000 and one a 1993. The '93 is much quicker then the 2000. Can't figure out why. Seems to mostly be a more agressive trany that is accounting for the difference. As far as mileageb I get about 20 avg on the 1993 (the quicker one). I am still trying to figure out if the trany shifting is adjustable or programable.

No, no turbo. I can't really trade her because I have 10K in mine, and we have 8K in hers. I had to do the timing belt and water pump right after I got it. Although the 93/300 is worth about the same as the 92/400. It's a thought.

usually the 400 is noticably faster than the 300. this is a mystery :huh: is there an elephant in the trunk of your 400? :lol: then again gas milage depends on how you drive. on my 400 i can get about 270 miles of mostly city driving on a full tank what about your cars?

I have owned both sc300 & sc400 and tho it is true if you compare 1/4 mile times (full out excelleration in other words) the 400 is quicker. However I have found that in around town driving under normal excelleration my 300 "FEELS" quicker.

We just figured the gas mileage; it gets 14 miles per gallon. I knew it was bad. But it sure runs good! No, the ect/power switch is not on, and the OD is on. She's not thrilled. Her Ford Escort got twice that, I'm sure. Oh well.
