Question 0-60 times

What kind of 0-60 times do you guys get. Last night I timed myself on a freeway on-ramp and wasn't able to beat 10 seconds. Is this pretty typical? What can I do to get it faster?

I haven't timed myself.

Based on published reports, IIRC, the 1999 Legacy GT has a 0-60 MPH time of ~ 7.9 to 8.2 seconds with a 5MT. Add approximately 1.5 seconds for a 4EAT.

The newer GT's, while much more roomy & safer, are perhaps a good 400 to 600 pounds heavier, and therefore are slightly slower than these times as well.

The Legacy Touring Wagon, 4EAT, was 8.2 in 1992.

I'm probably in the mid 7s now, with 11PSI and the other misc addons i've done.

This is at 4200FT...Altitude + Turbo = "What Altitude?"

G-Tech Pro says my 1995 2.2L automatic AWD with a K&N drop in filter does 0-60 in 8.66s

Are you brake torgqueing to get that 8.66?

I have an LSi. Doesn't seem that fast to me...

Nope, nothing fancy, just slammed on the gas. Funny thing, after I removed my intake silencer, my 0-60 time actually went UP to 8.84s.

I have other timings and the process I used listed on my web page under "G-Tech Data"

maybe you need to reset the ECU, then it'll be used to the reduced restriction from no silencer.

Default I don't think plain old Legacys are that fast...

Guys,

With the exception of the Touring Wagon, I don't think Legacys with minimal mods are in the 8 second 0-60 range. Sub-10 with some clutch brutality or brake torqueing I can buy. I now have RS wheels and tires on my '97 5 speed Outback and I would be astonished if it broke 9 seconds. I believe the G-Tech type devices are good for comparing a car and drive to it/themselves, but it is a relative vs. absolute measurement.

Hmmm. I just checked Edmunds.com and they list 8.4 for a '98 GT sedan so I guess I am wrong. They list 8.9 for a same year Outback (I would assume that these are 5 speed times). Oh well

Doug

Edit: spelling

My legacy is around 5.5 secs on the 0-60, if not a little faster, but I've got nothing but a similar mates time to go by, he hand clocked his at 5.0 with similar power.

Of course, we are both running B4 twin-turbo Legacies...

I timed myself several times and it averaged about ~10.5sec on my 98GT Auto Wagon with a K&N drop in filter. The problem is it is very difficult to do fast launch - reason: the dang active troque transfer put the power to the rear wheels thinking the front are about to sipn. I definately notice a drop in acceleration in 50/50 mode than 90/10ish mode. I can now almost perfect the art of launching without the AWD system really kicking in. To do this I ease in to the accel.....hard to describe, but there is a way to do it, and you feel a nice solid push. But its hard not to just punch the pedal. Definately quicker in 90/10 mode.

Timing was done with the "CASIO" stopwatch and watching for the needle to hit 60mph - I would give a tolerance of +/-0.5 sec.....seems reasonable. Only done in an empty nice and wide street.

Also, did not make too much of a diff with after Eibach/AGX mod....assuming I could now put the power to the ground faster.

Does your '95 LS underhood sticker say anything about California emissions? Mine says it meets them, so I'm not sure if I should by the Cal spec cam belt.
