Default SE/SLE 0-60

What are the 0-60 times on the SLE/SE Bonnevilles 2000+. I know they're over 9 seconds, but what are some actual figures that peopel have come up with? Thanks. (I tried search but I don't think anyone has asked about the 2000+ SLE/SE yet.)

No one has seriously done 0-60 on their 2000+ SLE or SE Bonneville?
Not to be rude, really, but I really can't believe 8.3 seconds because even my Aurora is 'rated' for 8.9 seconds and it has 10 more horsepower, less weight, the same torque at almost the same RPM (4,400 RPM VS the 3800'* 4,000 RPM maximum torque) and a much higher gear ratio..

I agree....with Custom88 I would assume the 3.5 aurora would be quicker but who knows. anyway I thought the 3.5 aurora would be quicker to 60 than 8.9 but then again the claimed 0-60 for my GXP is 6.8 and it feels slower than that to me.

The quickest time I've ever gotten was high 7'* 0-60, that was on a 40 degree day, but usually it'* in the mid 8'*.

Well like I said previously Pontiac claims that 6.8 is doable for the GXP and I dont see that being the case.
