I have a 95 v8 lx with no mods, unless you call taking off the air silencer a mod. My wife wants one and I spied one in excellent body shape with 8x,000 miles on it at a dealer. I took it for a drive and it was waaayyyyy slower than my bird. Keep in mind it is a twin for my car both with v8's, I checked to see if the octane plug was pulled but they were bothe there. Car wasn't pinging or knocking and no check engine light, it was just damn slow. All the shift point were good and it upshifted and downshifted right, just didn't move! I was wandering if maybe all it needed was a tuneup.
