Re: 0-60 times...

on the same note, what was the stock number for the SVT, ~7.5 or something?

The best stock magazine test I saw back in the day was a 6.9s by road and track for the 1999 SVT.

As for those of us turning times in the 13's....

With my 3L turbo I was able to turn the 1/8th mile in 9.1seconds at 86mph, and the 1/4 mile in 13.8s at 108.6mph

86 mph in about 9 secs implies at least a sub 6 second 0-60 time.
But most of first and second gear was wheel spin in that car unless I let out on the throttle a bit.
However, I did do that on stock width street tires, 215s with 50% tread left on them.
Put that kind of a launch and that kind of power on drag radials or slicks and it would have been an entirely different ball game, probably in the high 4s, low 5s.

DemonSVT with drag radials should have been in the low 5 secs 0-60.
