Like I said, you are faster than a SSEi of the same year, seeing as that there was no SSEi in '89 you are faster than something that does not exsist. thus you are faster than nothing
Ahhhh, right, see now we are on the same page. Its nice to be faster then something that doesn't exist...

Ok, I've done some checking and the SE for 1989 dose the 0 to 60 in 9.7 secounds,( I know, I know.... you're talking LE; the info listed was SE for some reason, but thats all I had to work with on this post as far as info). It dose the quarter mile in 17.3 secounds. The 1995 SE is supposed to be able to do 0 to 60 in 7.1 secounds and the quarter in 15.4 secounds. My 1998 SE is supposed to do 0 to 60 in 7.3 secounds, however, when I first did the 0 to 60 run I found the car would only do runs of ten secound plus and this was in 45 to 50 degree weather. After taking a lot of stuff out of the trunk and upgrading the exhaust I ran 0 to 60 in under 9 secounds. After I re-did the intake I ran at about 7.3 secounds. My car has 135,000 miles on it. Elevation is 1200 feet.
The sleeper awakes. 1998 White Bonneville SE with: ADTR CAI,180 degree T-Stat, 17 inch custom rims, Custom Window tint, ZZP HVTB, Summit Turbo Muffler, valve cover breather cap,FWI. 15.895@87.00 1/4 mile. The mighty roar......we fly!!!!! ..... 14.998@91.13 in my GP SE/ 3.8=ZZP stage L36 one kit,DHP,u-bend/res delite,FWI, ported manifolds, hi flo cat-2.5 cat back-2.5 downpipe-w-turbo muffler
