Just wondering what an average E series would do?

I timed my EL i6 auto last night - being dodgey like I am, i used the stopwatch on my phone! I managed 10.3 and then I did it again but this time with the BTR trans mod switched on. Managed 9.8! Does his sound good, bad, avegerage or other??

Cheers
Matt

i think that's about average (although this is depedant on condition of car and the weather on the day i guess)

My slow-ass ED (has LPG, but running on petrol) is about 9.6 or 9.8, can't remember. I used my phone stopwatch too tho, which is pretty dodgy like you said :)
However when the damned clutchfan is roaring its tits off, that figure blows out to about 11.5secs...

Maybe you're being too conservative with your timing methods. I reckon a EL could do better than that. I managed a best of 9.8 in my EA by myself. With two passengers on board and tools and car ramps in the boot we got 10.5.

I did 6.9secs with a G-Tech and no traction for about 50 meters.
Stopwatch said much the same.

well when i went down the qtr, buy the 660ft, i was doin 108.58 in 10.9 secs. so prolly around 10 secs for me, pretty much bog stock though, i only had an exhaust and air filter as my mods. i am looking forward to see if it will be any quicker in a couple of weeks

With my sped of a mate timing me in his reliable Nokia stopwatch i got 8.6 and 8.9 in my EF. which i though was about right.
Only had extractors and exhasut done.

I would hope my EB does sub 10 sec. But sometimes its slower than others...

My CFI LPG use to do 0-100 in 12sec. With EL engine and no mods it does it in arround 9sec.

eventualy 0-100 in 5sec flat is the plan.

hmmm... my car does seem a tad on the slow side!! Might need to give it a decent service. Bear in mind its only a few clicks away from 200,000 and its still original everything!

On the 1/4 I get to 660ft in about 9.5 sec doing 115-117 km/h.
Not sure what that would be for sure but im guessing 7-8 sec to 100km/h.

Best I could manage with an auto was low 8's.

I got 7.3sec with an empty tank and 7.8 sec with a full one. Makes sense cause she will hang with VS Clubby 185kw too 80kmh before they pass me. When I still had the 3.08 diff I raced my mates EL Fairmont to 140kmh. He beat me to 60 but I was 2 cars in front by 140. I last raced him with the 3.45 and he lost over half car in 1st gear alone.
