yea thats with the stock 15's and the 100lb T-5 trans lol. Would be even lighter if the 3.9/3.9 had an alum block.

The stock 15s with tire probably are rather light, no real knowledge I just know they felt 20lbs each lighter than my 17x9 chrome cobras i had on my old maybe 25lbs lighter (100 total)

My 2002 V6 auto weighed 3220 at the track with a ~15lb tool box in trunk and the heavy @$$ cobra wheels and 275/40 tires, so ~3200 would be a high measure... And 99-00 have 190 and 01-04 have 193, the 04 models didn't change their rating even though they had extra stroke, regardless 3hp is nothing to worry about...

also note the peak power is higher on 01-04 vs 99-00 due to intake runner valves etc. The rpm peak hp was raised from 5250 to 5500 rpms
