Would 2.73s be much different 0-60 then 3.23s? I know it seems a little sluggish pulling out but has lots of power on top until 50-55 when it shifts.

Yea, you'd notice a little bit of difference. I had 2.73's in my '95 TA and it would run real low RPM's on the highway but wasn't much for low-end torque. I'd probably even go up to 3.42's because you can still keep good RPM's but will notice more difference down low. Just according to how much highway and city driving you do?

Its mostly a summer/fun car. I drive in the country mostly with some town and city driving. I was wondering if they were the cars that would be in the low to mid 5secs on 0-60.

A stock Z will run low to mid 5's. You won't notice a major difference until you step up a few steps. If it's not your daily driver then I'd go lower on the gears but if you have too drive it a long way everyday then I wouldn't go too low.

Is it an auto?? If not, you can go up to 4.10s, even in a daily driver, without much sacrifice/compromise. I run around all year (even in ice/snow) with 4.10s. If I had to do it over though, I would probably go 3.73s for the slightly better MPG and not hitting the rev limiter (or floating the valves if you raise the limiter) through the traps.

Default 0 to 60 times

In my 2001 trans am I was running around 4.5 0-60 times. I had all the bolt ons. 4 speed automatic and hypertech powerprogramer. Running 13 sec flat in 1/4 mile. All bolt ons minus headers. I think they would have put me in high 12's for sure.

It's crazy to see that these cars have been keeping people interested and talking for well over a decade.

Good point. I think the 4th gens are like the 55-57 Chevy's and 64-72 A-bodies, not to mention various Mopar platforms. There will always be a fan base and people doing stuff with these cars.

I would have closed the thread, but your comment renders it worthy of staying alive

Thanks. It's actually interesting to see conversations about these cars when they were still pretty much new.

Logging with a Vericom I ran a 14.16 @99mph in a mildly modded GN with 5.4 0-60 and 275hp as indicated on the Vericom. My 60 foot time was 2.7 because the acquaintance who's Vericom I used told me to boost it up too much. I'm certain I could've easily done a 4.9 0 to 60 so I don't think it's unreasonable for an LS to be in that time zone.
