Pretty equal with a GTP? LMFAO! Who told you that?
I just did a search on C/D testing and actual 1/4-mile times from actual owners on a couple forums, and that sucker runs mid-15'* to Mid 16'*. In other words, you are 92/ SSEi fodder, and run the same as most non-supercharged L36-powered SE'* and SLE'*.
Your motor is actually made by HONDA. Known for making great power on paper.......3,000 rpm'* above what you would normally drive at.
