Not bad looks like around 7 seconds. Wish you taped the tach going about as well. :)

It looks more like 6.5-6.8 seconds but I am not sure, any input would be great.

Wow. Pretty fast. It would take me twice as long. Of course I only have a 2.8.

Wow! That is a great sound. I'm kind of a wuss when it comes to pushing the engine, so I've never heard it growl like that!

I think I'll make that the ringtone on my phone...

Thanks.

Scott, take him to that parking lot down the street. He probably won't get out of second gear!

Nobby, I drove a ROTW M110 W116 for a number of years. I have no illusions and decline to be lulled. Dave

At steady or above 4k rpm my engine enters its "other noises muffled properly zone" and I think it sounds like that. I wish.
