I didn't know they were that quick. Thats almost as quick as a stock series 2 L67. I think the ser 2 L67 is 0-60 6.9 sec; 1/4 mile [email protected] 92mph stock.

I thought it was Road and Track who got the 9 seconds? I say so because R&T always lists their test conditions - which were under high temperatures, high humidity (not sure?), and high altitude. So, most others who don't apply to these conditions will experience a faster SSEi

These numbers are BS. A stock 92 CAN beat that. The track conditions and weather were horrible the day they tested it. 90+ I think? Anyone remember?

Anyway, a stock 92 SSEi will spank any pre-92, assuming both cars are in good shape. A trashed 92 SSEi against an earlier model that'* not supercharged? Sure, there might be a chance.

I don't remember driverjohn'* best times from last year, but it was Mid-16'*. This was done with 110 track temps, high miles, poor tires, CRAPPY suspension, broken ELC, and exhaust leaks. Everyone ran half to a full second slower than their PB'* that day, so assume the 15.9 for his car taking ONLY temperature into account.

Listed specs for the 00' SSEi
is 7.1
and 15.8 in the 1/4

In real world testing the 1/4 was more like 15.2 with a good launch.

SSEi
1992 Mid 15'*
1993 lil quicker then '9
94/95 lower 15'*

96-99 One'* pulled off a 14.9 (good job SSSuperchargedEI) so expect about 15 if you don't eff up

00+ Lil slower, they are significantly heavier, not as hard launching, etc. Expect 15.2 give or take.

15.9 is BS. I ran that with bald tires, and FE1 suspension. The common 92 SSEi with some issues, average maintenence sure, but not anyone who takes theirs to a track. My new springs made the car torque up abou 1/3 of what it used to when launching. My car would always pull a 2.2x 60', no matter what rev'* i launched from. I can safely say my tires were the limiting factor for that. I figure a 2.1 or 2.0 is possible with my car with good tires.

That list is the same info that'* circulating on several websites. In many cases, there are big errors. It might be a general guide, but not much more than that.

And some things like the 95 SE that'll do 7.1 0-60. They don't tell you that it was supercharged.
