hi everyone, I need opinions from people who own either the 2.0 or 2.3 liter engine and whose previous car was a protege. I will be getting a 3 sometime this year but I'm not sure which model to get(2.0 or 2.3) I have 2.0 liter protege right now and I want to know what the power is like in the 3 compared to it. wih the protege the power is more in the lower rpm's and i hear the with the 2.3 liter once you hit about 4k it really goes, but what about the 2.0 liter, is the power down low or up hig or pretty even all the way through the rpm's
thanks for any input

well, i think the 2.0 on the 3 has the same HP rating. i think the 3 has more power though, feels like it anyway. i don't own a 3, just test drove one, but i owned a protege and it was nowhere near as good as the 3. the 2.3 on the 3 has 160HP compared to the 130HP of the protege and the 3i. power seems good throughout all the rpms on the 3s, which is the only one i drove.
