I just bought a 2.4t and I was wondering what kind of 1/4 mile should I expect out of it? I'm selling my 69 firebird 400 (anyone interested?

That's a heck of a big change in automotive environment. There's a writeup on the 2.4T with geartronic on this site.<P> <A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/features/road_tests/s60_24t/index.shtml" TARGET=_blank>http://www.swedespeed.com/features/road_tests/s60_24t/index.shtml</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Evolvo (edited 10-26-2001).]

How far off is the 2.4T from the T5 is real world driving in terms of speed? It seems from what I've read that they are less than a second apart in 0-60mph; maybe even .6 seconds. Is that real?

BTW, manual transmission T5s (S60s and S/V70S) have been recorded to accelerate as quickly as 6.3 seconds from 0 to 60mph.<P><BR><P>
