Hi everybody,
I just had a few questions for you guys. Does anybody know the actual 0-60 time for a 1999 3.8 convertible with the 5-speed? Becuase I have looked online a bunch and everywhere it says 8.6 seconds or so. I don't think this is true, so if anybody out there knows the real specs, I would greatly appreciate it :bigthumbsup

I want to say the 99 Cobra was a 5.4 second 0-60mph, so 8.6 sounds about right since they have a good amount of power difference. plus your convertible will be heavier which will hurt the 0-60.

True.....but still, 8.6 seems very high to me...

Weight is weight and less is just about always better. Just so long as its in the right places.

But alittle of topic but do you have an exhaust clip. I've got the same system minus that cats. I'm curious I haven't been able to find one.
