It depends which magazine test you look at. As for the R, it adds at least 10HP <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">. Actually, it doesn't stand for anything, cosmetic.<BR>

BUT.. average drivers will only get at best 7.2 or higher. this is because these magazines have people testing them that have done the launches MILLIONS of times. they know what they are dooing. it goes to show that the driver behind the wheel DOES mean a lot at the track.<P>if you have a LPT (low pressure turbo) expect 8.2-8.6 secs<p>[This message has been edited by GShyneDM (edited 06-03-2002).]

If it was pre-owned the previous owner probably bought the R from ipd. I did and everyone asks me, "Whats the R mean?" and I always tell them a larger more powerful engine and they believe me. Sure its lying but it gets alot of attention.

Nah...don't want people to say it's another R-wannabe; especially, the ones who know there's no C70R, it'd be kinda...........weird to have them ask me.

Actually, I see something more along the lines of wracking up another post <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Just kidding, I mean... I just don't think I would ever spend money on modifying a wagon, PERSONALLY, of course I can see other people doing it because they need the space, and like the speed... more power to them! literally... cuz more power's needed <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>
