0-60 times

Im just wondering what some of you guys are running in the 0-60 time frame. With a buddy in the truck with a stopwatch, I managed a 9.86 twice in the same night (this was before my pullies and intake). Also the truck was on a forth of a tank on the 87torque tune. I havent tried the 93performance tune yet Ive heard that it will pick up at least two tenths of a second.

8.26 is like a 3.0 5-spd regular cab with 4.10's and just enough fuel to make the run, a 100lb driver, and no exhaust or intake. lol

I'll look at my time slips (my stack of a million) and see how consistant I am and where I hit close to 60 when I get home.

with all your mods..... unfortunatly you'll run about a 10 second 0-60.

Why not buy a Gtech off of ebay? they go for pretty cheap. You can check for sure that way.

I highly doubt a 3.0 will hit the 8 sec range, will have to have boost or N2O being crammed down its throat or it will have to lose a lot of weight

Me and some buddies in there Nissan Xterra, Pontiac Aztec, Honda Civic, BMW 325IS and my ranger. I gave that 325IS a little scare the driver is my best friend and he was surprised that I managed a 9.86. He managed a 9.66 with a full tank of prem gas. All the other guys where in the 11-14 sec range... The Honda came out with a 14.25... It was an 08 basic model auto... I never laughed so hard cause that guy talks so much smack about cars and how his is so much faster than us

actually a 3.0L/manual reg cab can achieve in the 8sec range. 9.66 out of a 325i? Should be closer to mid 7's if it's a manual and mid 8's for a steptronic.
