Default Specs for a 97 SSEi

I'm setting up my software to do dynos. But I need accurate information to get the best results. What is the weight and drag coeff of a 1997 bonneville SSEi?

I ran with the stock setting in the software and it says I have 1064.36 RWHP and 1228.4 LB of torque. As much as I would like to say that, I think it'* off by just a little.


I did however get good 14 mile runs

60' 2.482 sec
0 to 60 8.080 sec
1/8 mile ET 10.481 sec
1/8 mile speed 70.443 MPH
1000' time 13.507 sec
1/4 mile ET 16.017 sec
1/4 mile speed 90.558 MPH

This is with no mods other then a intake. It will be interesting to see how that changes as I make mods.

Thanks

You should be trapping at least 91mph bone stock. Where you using a meter for those times or was this an actuall track?

That question just hit me too, Fantastic. I smell a Gtech meter or something similar. If this is true, ditch the meter. They're a joke, and typically, even with painful setup calibrations in a lab, aren't accurate enough for tuning purposes.

If you're using a meter, let us know, and we'll explain the problems with them.
