Sounds reasonable given it's a warm day and as stated, a fully loaded auto. Did you stall it up ?
And how did you measure it ?

the fastest I got my EF auto from 0-100 was 7.65s and consistantly around 8s. But to put this in perspective it was between 0-5 deg celcius I had about 80k's of fuel and I didnt stall the converter. Dont bother its not worth it. You can only stall it to about 1800rpm anyway and it wont make a consistant difference. Shift kits only feel like they are making a difference, but it didnt effect my times. Extractors and an exhaust didnt do much either only about 0.25s. I did my measurement with a stop watch and did it over about 3 weeks and about 40-50 time trials.

If anything, it seems a second or so slow - altho its got 70L of fuel and 70kg of driver with the slushomatic left in D on a hot day, really isnt THAT *bad*, try it again on a cooler night with empty fuel n tell us how you go, as most of us who have timed the cars and can compare them do it this way.
I hav no clue what mine does, either cars. :oops:

Thanks guys, big help. It was a pretty rough test, i was doing some photography after my new wheels investment on an empty back road next to a dam. id already been driving 30 mins so the temp was right up there and i just decided to give it a run. I used my trusty old nokia as the precise timing instrument. Mite give it a second go in the winter nights and see what happens then

Thanks
Luke

According to an online calculator based on my 1/8th mile times, my 5 speed EL with a cat back system, does 0-100 in 7.06seconds.
