Actually my girlfriends car, but I want
it. It is the M edition, with the tan
leather and burgandy paint, gold
badging and rims... Looks classy, much
more like a European luxury coupe than
a Ford Probe (which, along with the 626
were all built on the same assembly
line in the US.) The car looks great
and runs great... The 2.5l v6 has a
good deal of torque, I think 185 ft-lb.
to go with the 165 hp, and you can feel
it... The car loves to be above 4k
rpms. Backseat is a joke, but then
again, who cares, I dont sit back
there. I have seen headers, ecu's and
exhausts for this engine but that is
Favorite feeling is holding the rpms
steady at 4k, then stomping on the gas
and feeling it pull to 6k so fast...
Could have a little bit more
horsepower, and it is a little cramped
inside. A little more headroom. Also,
it is possible to swap the 2.5l v6 from
the mx-6 into the lighter mx-3
replacing the 1.8l v6. You gain about
30hp and 80ft-lb of torque doing that.
