well a 2.3L isuzu engine is around 110hp. edit 90HP not 110HP
5 speeds normaly have 3.73 gears, in 4+2 format.
have eather 14" or 15" rubber.
and are around 3,000lbs in 4+2 format.

if i had to make a (gess) it would be some where from 13.5 to 16 secconts to 60 mph.

I thought I had read somewhere that the 2.3 was only about 90 hp but I could be wrong, so if a 2.3 is about 110 hp what about what hp would the 2.6 be?

Speaking of performance does the 2.3 fuel injected make more hp and torque than the carb setup?
