I say race him. You never know, his turbo could be on its last legs. Hell, it might even blow up as you were racing him.

trust me his is not a low 13sec one....

and it definitely sounds like its on its last legs....when his turbo finally does spool up(which you can barely even hear) the car sputters and cuts out for like .5 sec...and hes always gunning it....everytime he comes to a stop he takes of like he stole it and revs it real high in every gear....poor car....

My friend raced an older probe with 14 psi in his stock V6 Camaro, with me in the passanger seat, and the probe barely edged him out :laugh:

The guy also claimed to have taken it over 180mph :laugh:

I'm sure the new ones are way faster, but I doubt it runs too good without some $ in tuning.

I got to put my .02cents in here since I used to own a 95 Turbo Probe. The Mazda 2.5L KL engine responds to boost better than any motor I know. At 6 psi it'll easily put down 220-240hp untuned. With 220 ft-lb of torque. Mine was a high 13sec car. not low 13's. I ran 7-8psi.
It ran turbo'd for 3 years, never any problems and with stock timing!

The older 1st gens were much slower, but At 15-16psi, they too can hit 13's. Most hit low 14's.
