Question XR6 NA accelaration/quarter times

Does anyone know what the 0-100 time and 0-400m times are for the XR6 NA ? Motor magazine has them in the back, but only for the auto - quoted at 8.11 sec to 100 and 15.86 400m. However just above this it says the XT does it in 7.23secs to 100 and 15.2 to 400m (Note XT tested was a manual). Id love to know, as my XR6 NA Blueprint is on order (two weeks to go) and is in a manual.

it should have similar performance to the XT, with better suspension.

The XR6 might even be quicker, because the XR6 has a 3.45:1 LSD.

only just, and only because the rev limit is now 6k(?) ... if on the other hand it was a 0-105kmh test, the XT with the 3.23:1 would be the quicker of the two. the diff ratio is not that much of an issue (when comparing 3.23 to 3.45) when paired with a manual.

Xt should be able to do it in 7 flat and 15 flat for the quarter..
XR6 would do it in same, shorter diff would mostly be mute, and the XR6 is more loaded than the XT

For the 400m, Wheels got a 15.8 for the n/a XR6 and 15.5 for the XT!!. Both Auto

The VY Commodore V6 did 16.6 and the Supercharged version did 15.4.

The Commy had better ratio's to suit the 400m dash, however they claimed at the XR6 was quickly running the Supercharged VY down and was much stronger overall.
