well, my friend just got a new camry with a v6 and challenged me to a race. i agreed just to see how the ga16 would hold up against a 6 we headed out to this 2 lane road, both caught the red light and were ready to go. his camry's an auto and my 200's a stick but i figured that was about my only advantage. i had him off the line and i took it to the redline in 1st and 2nd but he had me by 3rd by about 15 -20 feet. not bad for a 1.6, 4 vs. a 2 something, 6...

Yeah, it comes a time where that 5spd can't help you win all of them, but that camry (even in auto) can run pretty good. It's time to put some serious mods on your car so that this doesn't happen again!
yea, definitely i'd love to get some mods on my car but i don't wanna totally depreciate the value of it when i try to sell...seeing all these modded to hell civics makes you think..i also only have about 100 bucks to spend at the time so i figure i cant do much
Just enjoy your ride man!
i'm definitely enjoying my 200, i just wanna move on to a 300zx twin turbo hopefully at some point and don't want to only get a couple grand for my sx.
Its a 3.0 Liter V6 with like 180 something hp.

I spanked one in my 2.5s altima :) But thats cuz I have a manual tranny as well.
newer ones are like 210-225 I think, they share the same engine as the ES300. But the body is also bigger then previous years, so it needs it.
Quoted directly from Toyota's website

3.0-liter DOHC
24-valve V6
192 hp @ 5,300 rpm
209 lb.-ft. @ 4,400 rpm
Curb Weight: 3,296lbs

More powerful than before, but still slow comparing to accords and altimas
