    If the 05 and 04 v6's were to race who would win if they were both stock autos

    The 05's are quicker.

    05s have some pep to em, more noticeable than the 99-04. I have a '99 and so far have dual exhaust, CAI, and it's tuned with an Xcal2... so i'd think i'd have like maybe 160-165rwhp with my auto (maybe a smidge more)... which should be about a tad under an 05 which I would guess has 170rwhp. Anyway, I was testing one out one day at work and when you floor it, you definately feel it. I got in my own car to drive home later on and floored it and didn't feel the same kinda power in the low end. I felt power when the RPMs got higher, but with the 05, the thing was moving like right away. It actually really depressed me... :cry:

    Anyway, I'd expect an '05 can take a slightly modded 99-04.

    :confused:

    I always thought the better the gear lineup the better the car would accelerate? if it was head to head, 1-2-3-Overdrive for the 04, while the 05 still has 4th before OD? OD is low for fuel economy so it dosent have any acceleration. Im going stock for stock here, im shure rear end gears could change that, i might be wrong but thats what i thought.

    All the did to make it a 5 speed was split up 1st gear in the old auto's to 1st and 2nd in the 05+ auto's. Other then that the ratio's are the same.

    They have 3.55's(I think), and as stated before they run low 15's all day, if got 4.10's instead of 3.73's and had a xcal2 it would be a different story.;)
