First of all, I'm not a huge 1/4 mile fan because unless you go to a track, it's pretty tough to do this. Fortunatley for us, the TBSS gets it going fast enough that if you're caught doing the 1/4 mile anywhere but on the track, you're in lots of trouble. So, for a more mundane person like me, I rely on the 0-60mph as another gauge of SOTP fun.
I've seen a number of posts that talk about 0-60mph times for the TBSS and all of them seem to be based on using some type of calculator. One guy claimed a 4.63 0 to 60mph based on 1/8 mile speed and times. For comparison sake, I was doing a search on my old car, Jaguar XJR, trying to see how it compared to the TBSS. Well, I stumbled upon a couple articles by Popular Mechanics and I was quite surprised by their statistics on various cars:
and even better, one that focuses on 12 second 1/4 miles cars.
Here's the numbers on a MB E55 -- the 469hp one
Acceleration: 0-30 mph:
2.38 sec., 0-60 mph:
5.06 sec., 1/4-mile:
12.89 sec. @ 115.81 mph
Also for comparison, here's the Z06 they tested -- the 5.7-liter 405-hp V8 and 400 ft.-lb. of torque version: Acceleration: 0-30 mph:
2.09 sec., 0-60 mph:
4.58 sec., 1/4-mile:
12.53 sec. @ 115.38 mph
Now, even if the TBSS has good traction off the line, I don't think anybody that has done just a CAI and tune, and for that matter, headers and even cam, can come close to those numbers. I'm just guessing that we're not even breaking 5 seconds for 0-60mph.
Now, I'm also assuming that the test conditions were probably sub-optimal, but now I'm guessing that a TBSS even with CAI and tune does 5.2 - 5.5 0 to 60mph.
