Lol, I wasn't quoting a magazine, I was drawing from my own experience driving the 2.8! It could be a bit quicker in a 1997 A4 as it might be a little lighter than a later A6, especially if the car didn't have AWD.You missed the post above-you had a chance to call someone else a Magazine Racer.
That's what I do. Only problem is I have memorized all the info from being on forums, being in friends cars, stuff like that. It's just about never from a magazine lol.Lol, I wasn't quoting a magazine, I was drawing from my own experience driving the 2.8!

there's something wrong with this....is your saab stock? because 98 2.8 a4 walked my 95 900se from a roll (drivetrain loss comment)
T5 is not the turbo, it's the engine management system that the ng900 runs on.whats the 5 dollar thing about?? I didn't know we had a war forum, sorry about the misplaced post. But he didn't seem like he had much of a pull at all. Yes my car is stock (except air) and will be till next spring with taxes. so can anyone tell me what the heck t5 is? is that the turbo off of a aero?
uh, no. curb weight is around 3200, which (lol) is not much more than an ng900. and the 2.8 was rated at 190/204 as compared to 185/194 for the saab. rolleyes or whatever you want, but as far as i can tell, i'm the only person who has posted in this thread that has actually done a 60-100mph pull with both of these cars side by side.They also weigh 5100+ lbs.
A gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is the maximum allowable total mass of a road vehicle or trailer when loaded - i.e including the weight of the vehicle itself plus fuel, passengers, cargo, and trailer tongue weight.
The difference between gross weight and curb weight is the total passenger and cargo weight capacity of the vehicle. For example, a pickup truck with a curb weight of 4,500 pounds (2,041 kg) might have a cargo capacity of 2,000 pounds (907 kg), meaning it can have a gross weight of 6,500 pounds (2,948 kg) when fully loaded.
