0-60 App
 
I installed an app on my iPhone called QMT (Quarter Mile Time) to measure my acceleration. I didn't try really hard (didn't rev high and drop the clutch.) With just a normal fast launch revving to redline in first I pulled a very surprising 5.5 sec. on the first try this morning with temps in the low 70's.

My car is an '03 s with the only an under-drive pulley, cat deletes, and a Che muffler.

Spec on that model is 5 seconds, so not bad for a first effort. Wonder how accurate the app is? Is there a +/- listed in it?

It's probably reasonably accurate. I'm guessing it uses GPS for speed and starts the timer when it senses that the car starts moving.

You had to have shifted to 2nd as redline in 1st is around 35

The book says 0-60 with a manual is 5.4 sec, so 5.5 is pretty f'in good

Is there a difference between USA and Canadian MPH?

That went without saying, so I didn't say it.:)

I think only if there's a difference between Canadian miles and Canadian hours.

Yeah, our miles are shorter like our dollar is less. We give them special names to tell the difference!
