Anyone know what the stock 0-60mph and 1/4 mi ET is for this car? I saw one today and was wondering if I should mess with it. P.S. My car is far from stock. (I expect around 12.8 in the 1/4 out of mine)

aren't those things in the low 14's?

Well, they are twin turboed. So, I'd expect at least high 13s. But just a guess. Maybe someone with hard figures can chime in.

Low 14's sounds about right for the twin turbo Stealths and 3000GT's, late models had something like 320? hp but they were quite heavy, they are one of my favorite cars to come out of the 90's but if you have a car in the 12's you should easily blow him away if he is stock!

Well, it is said that every 50lbs translates into a tenth of a second in the quarter mile. So, it stands to reason that if these cars are that heavy then they would pull low 14's. Same reason our SCs aren't sub 15's.

I believe all years were rated at 320 HP, I'm not sure though. Some of the earlier ones came with a 5-spd AWD, then they went to 6-Spd. I think they run in the high 13's or 14 flat stock. Most of them are high 13's bone stock, of course depending on driver.

I don't know if the car you were seeing was modded or not, but there are a LOT of them running 12's.

I figured they would be faster than that. But ya, who would own one without raising the boost 5 or cough 10 psi? You wouldn't think it would take to much to get 400 to the 4 wheels on them. I have heard the awd's have bad tranny problems, I would asume from dumping the clutch and hooking up.

If the car has graphics and a dumb wing on it race it. If it looks stock and dirty stay away is what I would do.

They only run 9 psi stock, with a MBC they can be bumped up to like 15 psi on pump gas. so if it's stock you shouldn't have much of a problem, if your car is runnin g high 12's. but they are easily modded into the 12's.

Yes, they do have some tranny problems, and i'm sure dumping the clutch at 5500 RPM's doesn't help any, but they switched in maybe 93 from an 18 spline, to a 25 spline. The motors also went from a 2 bolt main to a 4 bolt. Not sure of the exact year, it was around 93 though.

I'm not running 12's right now, but that is my goal if I ever get the thing back together.

When you are running 12's you shouldn't fear anything on the street. Why not mess with him anyhow?

Well, it is said that every 50lbs translates into a tenth of a second in the quarter mile
I always had heard it was a tenth for every 100lbs.
