Well, for me it depends on the day, temperature, and strangly enough how much gas I have in the tank. On a good day at 60*F on a full tank i'd say 9.5 sec. 0-60 if i'm luckey. The only acceleration test i've actually done is 50-70mph passing test which I ran 5.9sec.

You ment the other way around, right?
No i didn't, series I will do better on the 0-60 because it has a better torque curve for it. The only thing the series II has on the series I is the upper RPM range power.

Series II bonnevilles are generally heavier then their series I counterparts as well. Gearing was changed as well. 3.06 is no longer offered

I swear I heard someone on here say the series 2 had a flat torque cuvre, with 90% available between 1000 and 5000RPM. I remember a compairison article between the 95' Le Sabre and the 95' 88. The 88 had the series 2, the Le Sabre had the series 1. The 88 did 7.8 sec. from 0-60, the Le Sabre- 10 flat. Not to mention if a series 1 can outrun a series 2, then my car is messed up.
