Chipped 3.6 V8 like 4.2?

  Had a good Email discussion with Ned about the IA chip for the V8.
It sounds perfect for my problems about my v8 being much too slow off the
line. In 1990 the factory claimed that the V8 did 0-60 in 8.7 sec. One
road report had it at 10 sec. This would make it competitive with 4
cylinder Volvos. Does anyone (James Dean?) have any round numbers on
chipped V8's? Since it will have about the same horsepower, but not
torque, of a 4.2 could this be an approximate benchmark?
