Probe 3.0 V6

Anyone else driving a Vulcan powered Probe? I just bought mine and I love it. Pushrod engine sounds pretty knarly vs the OHC engines I'm typically used to.

I was thinking of a muffler bypass, but honestly the car is so clean I dont want to do anything to her. Maybe poly bushings down the road.

Anyone have experience with Superpro control arm bushings? Pros and cons? I like that it would move on the center sleeve rather than putting stress on the vulcanized rubber (hah vulcanized rubber in my Vulcan powered car).

I got one with a stick

They have next to no aftermarket but will run forever if you maintain them.

Don't dick with it or try to make it fast, they are practically unobtanium right now and you won't be able to do anything worthwhile except for boost, and even then your headgaskets will hate you and no one makes a kit for it

I have had mine since 1995. Still runs great! Needs a set of lifters this winter to get rid of a tap.
