1988 Dodge Diplomat SE vs. 1991 Caprice wagon
« on: October 08, 2010, 01:37:25 AM »
ok this happend about a year ago but damn was it funny and this sections sort of dead :-\


my 88 diplomat was former poolice car mainly used for detectives it was a sleeper though it had a slighlty warmed over 318 with a 4bbl bigger single exhuast with a thrush chambered muffler it had a slight rumble to her was a grandma car though. the 2.24 rear gear made it slow about 17 second 1/4 mile time


well i am sitting at a red light waiting for it to turn grean when this loud horrible noise comes closer. look out my rear view and see this 91 caprice wagon the kid slams on the brakes locks up the wheels and slights to a stop... at this point i think he is a moron... then he speaks

him: he dude want to race i have a LT1 corvette engine it this beast
me: shure what year is it
him: dumb ass
me: well then it deffinently does not have a LT1 kid it has a TBI truck engine
him: no it's not

he then revs up his crap mobile the rotted out chokeblaster spewing out oil smoke and over rich fueling

at this point i just tune him out light tunes green and he floors it and i do the same. i leap out 1" a head and break the rear tire loose (peg leg fail) and he gains on me then i get traction and just start slowly gaining when ever i shift i leap about 3 feet forward. untill i just cruise by him at this point he is rocking back and forth trying to get the POS to go faster it is quite commincal at a minute later i let off becuase i reached the speed limit of 60mph (the rear realy kills the car)

stop at the next light he is glaring at me

me: that deffinently does not have a LT1 but this cas cop brakes, cop suspention, and cop motor

he roles up his window and then turns left and floors it agian

Other than the fact that it's disrespectful?  I'm not giving you an option.  Continue typing like you did in the OP for this thread and I'll start banning.

Are you saying you WON'T make it better, or you CAN'T make it better?

I'm on a few of the same forums he is, and I've always seen him post like that.

IIRC, I don't think he can help it most of the time.

I used to have an old '86 LTD Crwon Victoria wagon - and in fact I still do!  It's just not drivable ATM.  I'm seriously considering a 460 swap in it and much better gearing in the rear.

it looked nearly identical to this one, actually...



It's actually pretty light for what it is, too... weighing in at 3900 LBS it's like the Lotus Elise of station wagons!   :lol:

Wait a minute here, Earlier you posted a statement :

here was my car it was sitting at around 290hp with simple bolt ons the rear gearing was killing it.

And now I see this:
my dip got 18mpg and did the 1/4 in 22 seconds stock

after the mods it got 20mpg and did the 1/4 in 17 seconds

Then it was making more like 200hp not no 290, my truck makes less than 290hp and runs high 15's so how do you figure you run 2 seconds slower but make more power?

it had a 2.2 rear gear

it wieghed 3700+

i would of loved to have 3.08 rear gearing



people have put better gears (3.23 or numaricly higher) and have gained 4 seconds with doing nothing else going from a 22 1/4 to a 18 1/4




also i apoligize i found the dyno sheet it made 224WHP @4500rpm and 294wft-lbs @2900rpm i must of confused the tourqe reading. still comprared to the factory 145hp that's not bad for just exhuast and induction mods.
