T3 performance times

Has there been any confirmed performance times on the new T3?
I might have skipped it somewhere but I haven't read any quoted times.

Not that I am aware of, but we (the VIC XR Club) were priviliged enough to have had Gordon Barfield (Boss of Ford Oz SVO) present an excellent talk at our last meeting on the 5.6 and the T3 in general. He says they've done 0-100 km/h in 5.9 secs and 0-400m in 14.0 flat. He says they've even done a genuine 250 klicks in an auto T3. Motor should match or even better these times (Gordon admitted as much). For Wheels' times, add 3.5 seconds to Motor times!

wheels have been going downhill for the past year or two. they are becoming more and more like the late Which Car?

i am SERIOUSLY thinking about stopping buying wheels because it just don't hold my interest for a long time anymore. on the other hand, Motor has become a SPECTACULAR mag!

Good call. I canned my subscription to Wheels last year, exactly because of your point.

wheels has to mant boring tests of light 4wd and fuel consumption and other boring stuff like that. Deosnt capture the imagination like MOTOR does. So, if anyone from Wheels is reading this show the editor what some of the reasons are why we cancelled our subscription. Your getting FREE customer feedback here!

True, but wheels do there times with 1/2 tank fuel and a passenger which represents real world times.

real world times?in real world fords are always quicker with flat torque curve right from the start. Did you read the goauto article about the T3? NO SILLINESS OF DUMPING THE ACCELERATOR LIKE SOME OTHERS.
They shouldn't worry about real life acceleration cause only the owners know that. If they would be sincere enough to give an idea about the real life times, the wrx's will be doing 18 seconds instead, the turbo is very hard to convince to launch, unless u kick the car's a@#$.

The REAL stroker output??

Just found an old message in my PMs entitled "Stroker POWER"...

JEM's reliable source said 275kw, some folks here are saying that the quoted figure is a little on the low side..

Has anyone got the stroker on a dyno yet?
