Default 0-60

Hi All,

What kind of 0-60 times do you'll get? I would be especially interested in times from those who have modified their cars and what each mod bought ya.

Thanks!

John from South Jersey

I'd say a car like mine, Series II NA will be about 8sec.

An Series II SSEi will vary between 6.5 and low 7s.

I don't know about Series I engines.


EDIT: What kind of car do you drive? I believe the 96-99 SSEi is the quickest of the bunch.

That sounds right. I have a 98 SSEi Series II - it in the high 6'* low 7'*.

Trying to learn how to do mods to get it a little better.

A nice start would be to get a 180 T-stat, 3.4" pulley with a good belt, and cold air intake of some sort, and some colder plugs. That will definitly drop your 0-60 time significantly.

94-95 Series I SC engines are supposed to make 0-60 in low 7'*. 7.1 on the SC SE. So a lil more for the SSE+SSEi trim levels.

92-93 Series I SC are in the high 7'* i believe.

Proper launch, and as little wheel spin will also help. Magazines don't brake torque either.

You'll find off the line, we're very good for such a huge car. Just a little less on the top end stock.

Thanks all.

Thanks Pontiac Dad! Nice to be here.

I have the basics on WHAT I should be doing first (Thermostate, intake, pully) just don't yet know how. I am not very mechanically inclide. Really I am the Villiage Idiot as I posted in another thread.

Same here, I don't know too much. But those basic mods are fairly easy to do. If you know a good mechanic that helps, but if not, I'm sure many here will help ya out.
