Put it on a track, and find out.































It doesn't matter what the factory rated speed was (which you could have looked up yourself, if you had bothered), because you are not a professional driver, do not have a brand new car, and do not have ideal track conditions.































All of which were the standard that were used when the 0-60 was calculated.































So, go to a track, and see how fast YOU can do it. Not just once, but can perform that speed repeatedly. There's your 0-60.

assuming everything on it is stock.. your 0-60 should be 6.2 seconds according to "Car & Driver".

the guy with all the thumbs up is wrong on atleast one thing. A brand new motor doesnt actually run a faster 0-60. Most cars run their peak times with about 1000 to 5000 break in miles. Anyone with any expierence driving a brand new car will tell you it feels sluggish until its effectively broken in. Another point is that if your car is an automatic (i hope its not) you don't need to be a pro to drive it to its optimum 0-60 time.

In the auto you can get 0-60MPH in 6.2 stock and with an Intake(SRI or CAI) its 0-60MPH in 5.9 Seconds assuming its the 5 speed automatic!
