From a dead stop,, stomp on the gas & see how long it takes to reach 60mph?

Not with a G-Tech.

I think the "official" 0-60's are sometimes done on tracks with traction compound laid down. you'd be lucky to ever get those times on a real street.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!

Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
