From ECU log file rpm data, not GPS:
100-200 km/h: 8.6 sec at 0.6 bar/ 9 psi !

Congrats! Was that on unleaded or E85?

That suddenly makes me feel terribly slow anyway!

Haha you're not slow, but you know how it is.. there's always someone faster

I'm running on pump gas. The ignition curve is still a bit conservative and so is the rpm limit. I'm running straight spring pressure so boost starts at 0.55 bar and creeps up to around 0.64 bar.

No test is perfect but this is going to strongly bias the bigger capacity cars. With the gigantic turbo, poor cooling and big capacity 4th gear 60-130 was the sweet spot for everything. Paul S clocked his car as being exactly as fast 60-100 in 4th as it was 60-100 in third!

Perhaps he'll be kind enough to post a time up here but I can tell you its roughly the time it takes to pull out and overtake 1 car. That was my favourite trick in the 3.2, sitting behind someone in 4th doing 60, see a tiny gap and your hitting almost 130mph as you pull back in.

I still remember the immortal line from my girlfriend at the time "I think I've got whip lash"
