Hey there,

I'm just curious as to the best 0-60 time achieved thus far for a turbo 2.3 tbird? I was looking around, and I apologize if I missed it, but I didn't see many numbers posted.

Im not sure on the 0-60 times....stock 87-88TC it was not pretty.

0-60 was never easy in a TC because you have to shift into 3rd before 60mph. My car is modded, im sure my 0-60 is about 4.5-5 seconds.

Layla will hit 70 in 2nd. Big Grin

And Travis's #s sound right. My stock GTO goes [email protected] and the 0-60 is listed as "4.8 seconds".

Good thing you live in Washington, or you might have had a tough time finding a hill that was tall enough for that performance test. Wink

You could peruse the Drag section here on NATO and compare the 1/4 mile ET's against that graph. Cars on slicks will vary on the faster side of the 0-60 range presented in the chart, and traction-limited top-end screamers (like Shannon's) will vary towards the "slower" side.

Naw, tranny gearing is different. I got sick of waiting for the car to get through the loooooong 3rd gear.

Now if I was pushing her off a cliff, 1/4 mile to a cliff floor, she'd go 9.08 @190 Big Grin Stupid physics class...

Reason I ask this is because, not ever having driven on a track, 0-60 is the only sort of 'gauge' I understand.

Also, around here, with only one major highway and tons of Donut Technicians perched on it, quick acceleration is the only thrill you really get around here. I want to feel that sinking into your seat feeling as you take off... is that possible in these birds or are they too well-refined (heavy)?

I have trapped 102mph(give or take a mph) in 3rd gear many times with my TC. Stock tranny and gearing. 26" ET Streets. Not shifting above 6200 either.
NO TC and NO headaches.
