thanks BlackConquestTSi ill check it out
WRONG!!!!!!!!!! 9.2 seconds my Ass!
This car is much faster than that!
you got the non turbos stats I know because i owned one.
i don't know the 0 to 60 times but i do know the 0 to 50 time was 5.4 seconds.
i have raced a mazda RX7 twin turbo and beat it to 90 from a start,
smoked 300 ZX's, beat my friends 85 corvette automatic, smoked a 90's BMW 5 serise sevral times on a strech coming from clearwarter florida into tampa and killed every mustang that ever looked my way.
plus the horspower is wrong the turbos had 180 or 190 something hp
and 200 something i think 40 foot pounds of torque
once again 9.2 seconds my Ass!
Dude you must be seriously deranged to think you smoked 300ZXs and corvettes in this piece of crap import.
yea man, i like imports, but this aint no import, and it definatley cant beat a 300zx or any other car u mentioned.
Isnt this just a Dodge Daytona??<!-- Signature -->
This isn't a Dodge Daytona! I know. I own both a 1990 Dodge Daytona AND a 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSi (starion esi-r's twin). These cars can hold 500+ horsepower with some mods. Unlike the Daytona, they are RWD (NOT FWD). Also, this one is the "slower" of the two starions shown on Supercars.net. The ESI-R is the wide-body version complete with the turbocharged AND intercooled engine producing 188hp in 1988/89. Now, throw a boosting rate fuel regulator, 20G turbo, bigger exhaust, etc. onto that esi-r, and you're gonna have loads more of horsepower. After some mods, YES, a Conquest TSi or Starion ESi-R will "kill" a mustang (-even the 5.0s), 300zx and camaros. I don't really know about the corvettes or 300zxTTs. I guess it's possible if the corvette is an older STOCK version...then YES, it is VERY easily probable. But, not if the vette has some ><IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">nice><IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"> mods done to it. And, I know the 300zxTT is very good competition for a souped-up ESi-R.
Undoubtedly though, the Conquest TSi and Starion ESi-R can be VERY VERY fast and be made to take a stang or camaro w/no problem. Just thought you ppl out there needed a small history class on my beloved car's ancestor.<!-- Signature -->
thank you BlackConquestTSi.
its nothing like a Dodge Daytona but i read once long ago in an old consumer reports that it was a replacement for it.
the engine and body are all Mitsubishi just like the Stealth and the eagle. and don't even compare it to an eclips its more like its much nicer big brother. the eagle Talon was the eclips's equal and the Cordia came before the eclips so lets end that debate before it even gets started. you could not even give me an eclips. they drive like
tricked out colts witch is exacly what the Cordia was.
eclips lovers don't hate me im just telling it like it is.
My conquest was a 87 TSI turbo with a 88's ECU other than that it was stock. the vette i raced was my friends 85 automatic. it had no mods and he hung, im sure he would have beat me if we kept going but
we ran out of road.
As for the rest of you I own a 94 corvette today. and ill tell you this much, i would buy another conquest turbo as a second car in a heartbeat just to trick out. with a t3 turbo, this thing can pump out 500 hp! and run with stock vipers.
do you know how fast this car was form 0 to 60 and the 1/4 mile?
I never clocked it but i know every time i punched it i was doing 70. today My wife owns a 95 5.0 and their is now way in hell this car could take me in a conquest turbo, its way to slow.
If i had to discribe how the conquest drives in one word i would have to say it drives like a rocket. i mean it i nails you in your seat and the faster you go the more it nails you.
i loved this car! where the hell do all of you think the 3000gt came from? know some facts befor you ASSUME!
(Note: to all who don't know, "StarQuest" was the GENERAL name associated to mean Starions and Conquests. Hence STARion conQUEST.)
yeah, me and my bro decided the daytona had A LOT of features that the StarQuest had. Unfortunately, the daytona didn't take the RWD characteristic that the Quest has. The 'tona also doesn't have the power capability that the Quest has. Other than that, it's an alright car. I've had it since a little after I got my license...so, it's sorta my first car. Now this quest, i bought it about 6 months ago and it's completely stock. Now, you MUST have had a souped up version, because I know the 5.0 mustangs are pretty quick to hang with. But, that's not to say this car isn't fast either! Mine, being all stock, is VERY fast. I'm still trying to get it inspected and on the road as my summer ride. Hopefully maybe in a couple more weeks and I'll be set? (WATCH OUT PENNSYLVANIA!!! HAHAHA!)
Anyhow, the STOCK 0-60mph time for the 88-89 WIDEbody StarQuests was something like 8.4 and the 1/4 mile times were something like low 14's. Now, I know EIPtuning has a 10 second 1/4mile StarQuest. It is SUCH a hot car! I want it! Haha. I wish. Hey, maybe i'll try to chat with ya over AOL IM? Update your profile if your IM is different.
Love to all the StarQuests. Keep 'em alive.<!-- Signature -->
dude im telling you man 5.0's are not really that fast unless you trick them out.
I even read a review once on the starquest that even tells you it can take the 5.0. i think it was on car quest im not sure. so the 0 to 60 must be more like 5.9 seconds. remember im talking about an 87 TSi turbo wide body the 86's and under were a bit slower they ran 7's .
though its true a mustang has a much higher top speed the conquest will max out at 124mph but will still rocket you to 100 faster than the 5.0. this is the only advantage the eclipse had over the star-quest. the eclipse could do 160mph but just could not take the star quest off the line. eclipse eventually came out with a 4 wheel drive turbo that almost matched the starquest's off the line proformance thats why they discontinued it and replaced it with the 3000gt & stealth so that it would justify the proformace cost.
however the egg still could not preform as well over all.
in handling or acceleration.
i still remember the TV commercials for the conquest vs 300zx and the eclipse FWD turbo and starion turbo.
I will post an article later that a friend of mine found on the conquest.
the egg shaped eclipse still cannot hang with my old lady's 5.0 they fall off at about 90mph. i like to play with them at about 70 to 80mph
by making them think they can hang but once they hit 90 i woosh! past them. but the truth of the matter is that given a really long stretch of road the eclipse will come back and eventually overtake the 5.0 but only if your or in someplace like Texas because its going to take a long long time.
man, i trust what you're saying about the quest beating a stang no prob. i know these cars are very fast, and i AM talking about the 87 WIDE BODY quest (seeing as i own an 87). but, the 0-60mph times i'm giving are the ones that i'm pretty sure were in pop. mech.'s. don't forget, you can't get used to getting a car from 0-60 by trying it once and thinking "oh yeah, that's definitely the fastest it'll get to 60". that's prolly what p.mech.'s did, and that's why the 0-60 was so high. if you're still interested in these starquests so much, you should join www.tristarion.com it's a really good resource for these cars. nice talkin to another starquest admirer...<!-- Signature -->
A eclipse would not be able to out run a 5.0 stang. I have a 95 GT and its 0-60 is something from 6.5 to 6.9 not too fast but its only a GT, and the top speed is 149. And I know for sure that a eclipses top speed is only 146 not 160 they've never been able to do 160.
this cars interior sucks, reminds me of the back to the future impulse/ car isnt dependable, mitsubishi is next to suzuki if you ask me, ilike the evo though, why not bring the fto? they got the gto right? anyways, my friend has one, shes no racer and she maintains it monthly, its a gay car, not dependable like most mitsubishis, when is the trbo eclipse coming? maybe the GT-X? GS-T?
man I've never got mine 95 Mustang that high and I maxed mine out not long ago
but to be honest I don't even know how high I got but I know it could be no more than about 142Mph at best. I was on 85 headed towards Atlanta GA playing with a Saleen Mustang and an early 90's firebird TA
for the record me and the other Mustang both got our asses whipped by the TA.
I even caught the Saleen! At about 128 he seemed a die off. maybe he was going a lot faster than that but it was around 130 that I seem to start to catch him. it was a cool race because even though the TA was faster the Saleen definitely had it on the initial sprent from say 75 to about 90 then the TA would start to pull away.
Now boys and girls I definitely do not recommend doing anything this crazy
it is against the Law and very stupid.. as a matter of fact I came very close to damaging my car. When I got to a stop light smoke was coming from under my hood but thank God it was only oil that sprayed out from the manifold covers on to the exhaust pipes
due to the intense pressure build up in the engine. I guess you could say it was a warning because I know if I have pushed any harder I probably would've blown my engine.
You queers in the mustangs and camaros think your bad asses huh think a little *saleen 281ns-265hp starion esir-188hp* these specs are accurate you jack asses I know my shit this car is inline 4cylinder and an 88 will run high 15s all day with half the amount of cylinders that you idiots do so next time you see one on the road race and you might get your ass whipped this car can handle heavy tunning its stock turbo can be moddified to push 20psi of boost more than a stock twin turbo supra this car is a legend and should be admired I have an 88 and it turns heads all day it has superior handling more so than many new cars this car was a huge stepping stone for the automotive industry It mightbe old but it looks kick ass and will kill all hondas and 5.0s and its not even DOHC mine does 140+ with only about $800 inveted I have nothing against domestics but this car is put down to much when it should be praised
What's your problem? I mean, mad and all..
U might be right
i have a 88 conquest tsi widebody the bottom end is stock but i have a newly molded head that eliminates the jet valves, has solid lifters, and a 292 cam. The stock turbo is pushing 15psi and this thing kills anything around. the only thing that came close was my buddys pt pushing 35psi and sprayin 125. stock 5.0 has no chance new camaros no chance. everything is stock except headwork so i can imagine if u uped the turbo and put aftermarket intake this thing would be insane. mines automatic but would rather have standered. and that 120 top speed is bs cause this weekend had to pick my car up outa impound for being clocked at over 150 on interstate. so u conquest guys stick with it. im no importer but this car rocks
I have an 89 Chrysler conquest I have cold air intake 20g turbo bored 30 over and a stand alone ecu stage 2 clutch. I am wanting to know what I can do to make my car faster
I got nostalgic was looking into one of the greatest cars I've ever owned. I bought mine new in 1989 the last production year. I raced everything in it, I raced my buddies brand new Iroc-Z and whipped up on him he couldn't believe it. I have driven many cars now in my life and there has never been one that was as fast and handled as well for my money. I regret selling it to this day, there were a few things that was buggy with them. You had to watch, the low Clarence on the front, the paint fading on the plastic pieces, headlights always malfunction, I sold mine 7 years later with 120,000 on it after I started having transmission problems and somebody ran into it. Anyway believe what is said about this car. It was one hell of a ride for under 20 K!
