GVR is fuel and passengers and their cargo, not just your normal load.

The only way we'll know 0-60 is if we use timing equipment at the same local, on new cars. I think high 7 seconds will sound good for a S2 L67 H body car.

I know this is the worst way to do a 0-60 time, but I did use a stopwatch. Before I bought it I tested it at 7.2 sec. in 85* weather. I tested twice a couple of weeks ago in 40* weather and got 7sec flat both times. Everytime I tested my 93' it did it in 10.2sec. every time.

I remember when i drove your 1993, I could feel the gearing difference right away. I think a 9 second time for the base and stock 93 would be on avg.

The problem with the stopwatch is the lag of the analog speedometer when going WOT. If someone had a scantool with logging you could do some simple math and figure out your speed when looking at a speed sensor...
