Hey newbie to this site but been around the forums for a while. I currently own a 2003 Mercury Marauder and i have a big confession to make. I had never once thought i would purchase the B-Body Impala SS due to it being a bitter enemy to the MM. Basically the Marauder was made because of the 94-96 Impala and i have always been inspired from these muscle cars! Well anyways my friend is sellin her and its a 95 Impala with a nice run down of some mods which are K&N Cold Air intake, Magnaflow Dual Exhaust, New Trans, New Brain, New Black Paintjob, New Catalic Converter, AC & Heat had just got done and yellow cap. Anyways end of the day i plan on soopin this car the hell out!

It looks like your MM is pretty damn sweet man! The MM is equal or better in all areas cept going fast. If going fast is your thing then the Impala is for you! You can make the MM real fast as well but it will take a rather large wallet to do it. Welcome! :smile:

I think the impala looks better too, besides being faster. Not saying the MM looks bad, it doesn't, the SS just looks better, IMHO. Never having driven an MM, if someone were to tell me their interior is better, I would probably go ahead and just take their word for it.

Welcome to the fold!

I'd be interested in hearing the lowdown from you after a month of driving the SS (after making a few additional mods). Most people that I've talked to have been biased for the car that they owned - and I've never talked to anyone who had both at length.

Are you planning on keeping both of these beasts in the stable?

Yes the Impala will be a garage queen next to the beloved Maraud. Wont See winters in my hands. The Impala certainly has ruled its time since its release in 94' I need to redo the whole interior on the Impala as everything has fased out within the years. I was a big fan of the cherry metalic paintjob thta came stock on these cars! Anyways i kept the Marauder all stock. She just flipped 50k not too long ago. She certainly does turn heads in the town. Anyways still decidin if i should race this car or just pimp it the hell out. I always thought this car was meant for rims.

The Obd2 Could Help U Wit The 96 Impala Ss!!!! 94-95 Had Obd 1. Fails Codes. U Can Re Program Obd2 Alot Simpler 50-100hp More. But Alot More Money To Have A 96 Ss. There Was Alot Of 96 Ss That Were 315hp Over The 260hp, They Had The Vett Motor. Minous The Cast Iron Heds!!!!

yes ever since i 1st laid eyes on a 95-96 impala i also believed they look 10X more beautiful on rims than stock although chevy knew what they were going for with the stock rims and body lines...... ive had ex cops stop me just to look at my car and tell me how they wish they still drove one ( w hella compliments on tha rims )

what crack are you smoking.... Obd1 vs OBD2 tuning for our apps are virtually the same... That said it's CHEAPER to tune the OBD1, and gains aren't that huge of a difference over the other. ALl LT1 B-cars were rated at 260hp.

Stop the crack.

Well said! Don't know where you got your info but 315 HPs is not accurate. Also, I don't think the statement that a reprogram will get you 50-100 hp gain is true.
