Default 98 N/A Bonneville 0-60 in 7.3???

Hi

I was bored so I was looking at this site with 0-60 times

http://www.albeedigital.com/superco.../0-60times.html


I saw my car and it has a 0-60 of 7.3? That must be a typo right? More like 8.3 maybe?

Bonnevilles are big cars and I figure thats typo

1998 Pontiac Bonneville SE 7.3 15.5
1995 Chevrolet Camaro 3800 7.4 15.7
1999 Ford Mustang Convertible V6 8.6 16.5


Seems a bit quick to me. Dont race though so I dont know.

Oh, that list. I don't hold a lot of trust in that list. They have large variations for one car, with the same engine, from year to year.

Now that I about it 8'* sound right.

I know the average Civic Ricer is in the 9'* and I play around with them(dont we all) nothing major but they seem real slow.

I'd say low 8'* 0-60. The Series 2 is a good engine. I've driven a 96 Regal and that car could move. I find the Series 2 NA to be quiker than the Ser 1 NA. However, the Ser 1 I had was geared at 2.84. Most NA Bonnevilles have 3.06. Now I have a ser 2 L67 which is the quickest car i've driven.
