Interesting... I have a Motor Trend at home that tests a '91 V8 5-speed
that gives 0-60 of 6.5 (I think -- I'll double check tonight).  I also
recall a recent post quoting 6.6 seconds.  Either way, I didn't know the
two were that close in performance (numbers, at least)...

I also now realize I may be a bit biased, since my V8 has an IA ECU,
good for about 7 hp.

I don't suppose anyone has recorded a lap time for either model at VIR
or Summit Point?  Any other tracks?
