Hey guys. I couldn't find a post with the stock specs for the 1st gen, so I was wondering if people would like to throw all their info into one post about the STOCK specs for the 1st Gen GT like the 0-60 time, 1/4 mile time, compression ratio, bore, stroke, brake size, top speed, etc. I want to get our cars into http://www.supercars.net .

0-60 in 7.5secs, 1/4mile in 15.5secs, compression ratio- 7.8:1, Bore X Stroke- 3.39 X 3.7, brake size?! no idea, Mazda had the 88GT tested to 131mph, others on this site have claimed to be higher, I've heard as high as almost 150?

I've seen a page with a stock 1990 Probe GT listed as 6.7s in the 0-60, but it was a website so I can't trust it. Are your figures from a magazine?

Ok cool. FYI http://www.edmunds.com is getting into the specs research with a 0-60 time included for all cars (seems to be only late models with specs as of now), but none listed for our car yet. :/

Car and Driver, which actually tests cars as opposed to just quoting the manufacturer specs, got 0-60 in 7.0 and a top speed of 133 mph.

Are those YOUR results or the results from some magazine? I ask because they are exactly the same as the Mazda factory quotes. Most magazines don't really test cars, they just pass along what the factory says the numbers will be. For instance Motor Trend and Road & Track do this. Car and Driver doesn not, they actually test cars and record times.
