Default 0-60 What do you think? (New vid added after tune up)

This is before a badly needed spark plugs,wires and oil change. I think this seems right for a 89 LE.What do you guys think.

I drove a 1972 Ford Pinto that was about as quick.

It didn't sound as good though.

Sure you don't want a SC.
