Default 97 se performance stats

I just purchased a 97 SE and i was wondering if anyone knows what the 0-60 and 1/4 times were? I have seen many different times, rangeing from 8.4/16.4 to 7.7/15.4?

I would say around an 8 sec 0-60 and high 15'* for the 1/4.

It should be close to this, but keep in mind car-to-car variations and track conditions:

Alot of that depends on what year SSEi you're talking about. 92 will be one time range, 93 another, 94-95 yet another, then 96-99 a bit faster, then 2000-2003 a little slower.

This might help some:

But it needs alot of updating. I'm currently working on the new format with updated times for everyone.
