    03cobra

    He had owned an expedition previously...I think it was a 98 model, so he was used to the truck...the space.....with his kid and all he probably wanted the extra space.......its a new eddie bauer one so it is plush from what he tells me.......you know, they made a chip for his old one...haha.....seriously, they did and he used to put it in to help tow his boat....i'll have to have him post to tell you what kind of hp increase it gave him....granted the thing weighs a ton so i doubt it will hang with any auto wagons....

    Yup I did it.... LEW-ZER!

    Still have buyers and sellers remorse.

    Anytime you trade a car in, you loose money. Its just a matter of how much are you comfortable loosing? They met my threshold.

    I got a 2003 EB Expedition 5.4 4X4, 3rd row (seats 9), DVD Ent Console, Heated AND AC front seats, Leather, memory seats, back-up sensors, in dash 6 CD, computer, yadda....

    I dont even think I will run synthetics in it... Just run it till it dies... I tried to get into a cheaper Explorer. Every time I drive one I hate it...


    03 Cobra: 6.6:1 power to weight

    03 Expy: 26.9 power to weight UG!

    7000 lbs and 260 HP. She's a PIG! Got 17 MPG on the highway and thats VERY GOOD for these! Took only $37 to fill it with 87 octane vs $27 with 93 in the Cobra. AND I will get WAY farther on a tank in this thing. She holds like 30 gallons of fuel.

    I couldn't take a WRX Wagon Auto towing ANOTHER WRX Wagon Auto. Even with a head start.

    Actually, its quicker than I thought. 260 HP and 350 TQ. A chip and filter should bump me to 320 HP and well over 400 TQ. She'll pull the foundation from under a building!

    03CObra,

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did you sell yours for? You seemed to have sold it just in time. One dealership in Dallas has them discounted down to 30,995 brand new. I see the same ones at the different Ford dealerships I drive by. I'm guessing with the economy and the anticipation of the new body style coming out they're not selling too well.

    sorry to break it to you, but a chip and filter will not get you an additional 70 HP.

    Hmmmm, I can liken a change like this to castration.

    I know what you mean about losing money on a car. I took a VERY large hit when I sold my 350Z.

    Oh well, get some spinnerz and pretend you are a rapper.
