I used the search but did not find a 0-60 time for Fieros.
This is a street legal time that any one can test and post.

I think less than 5, I will check it out and post the time. How can anyone prove it though. I guess I could try making a video. Then I will have to figure out how to post it.

I run in the 3.2-3.4 second range according to my scans. It looks like my best was a 3.204.

According to Road & Track 0-60 with a stock 2.8 was 7.3 seconds. Have never checked mine. Not stock but not radically modified.

Never checked 0-60 but I can tell you it goes from 60-100 pretty quick if you want it to.

I'd estimate my naught-60 time around 8.5 seconds if my engine is stock, though, I have my doubts. It doesn't really run like any stock engine I've ever encountered on any other cars. Probably cam'd at some point - my gas mileage suggests modifications anyhow.

Just over 9 seconds with an auto duke, measured with g-tech pro. If I could manually shift the auto, I could probably cut a second off that time.

Amen too that brother! Unless of course you have a new engine or something, these motors are over 20 years old.. I try not to rev mine past 4500rpm.. As for my 0 - 60 time.. i dont really know, but it gets there quite quickly..

Although i will admit that ever since i got my new suspension put on, the car feels as if it accelerates slower than it used to, even though it doesnt.. Probably feels that way now cause the suspension is so tight, the nose of the car no longer feels like it wants to come off the ground when i floor it, lol..

Based on my best quarter mile pass ever, I would guess my car is capable of 7.3 seconds.

That's with my lightly modded 2.8 L 85 GT.

It's got an Isuzu tranny, MegaSquirt 2 engine management, mild weight reduction (air conditioning, spare tire, jack), ported exhaust manifolds, and 225/45R17 BFG g-force sport tires.

I need to do a new run with mine on a nice day, I think I can get it in the 8 sec range.

LOL at the guy talking about revving it out. When doing such a low speed acceleration range, you should keep it in thee torque band at lower RPMs anyway. Revving it out just makes it slower. That is why I wish I could upshift my auto when I wanted...


Figured before catching flack for the comment I should say I was referring more to stock cars, not cars that have engine work done that make torque in upper RPM. But from what I understand both stock Fiero engines lose there torque at 3500-4500 RPM

The kit is close, but if you compare the diffusers, the one on the kit isn't as wide. I spotted 4 differences in total, all at the rear.

You should shift to maximize POWER. If shifting time was instantaneous, then you would upshift such that the power in the next gear will equate the power in the current gear.

Due to the reality of gear changing taking a finite amount of time, you're actually better off shifting beyond this point. Time spent shifting - putting zero power to the ground must be taken into account.

I shift my 2.8 Fiero at about 5500 RPM.

I got a quarter mile time of 15.644 @ 86.78 shifting this way.

Thats why you need an automatic with manual valves. They shift way faster then a manual trans, and have the same advantage of controlling when to shift.
