the book time is something like 8.7 isnt it? but as 1st and 2nd gears are so short i dont see the box taking off loads of time, maybe down to 7.5 but dont expect miricles! where the box will shine is 3rd and 4th gear, really pulls hard and keeps up/is quicker then alot of motors.
As above.. I'm no advocate of street racing,however I once had a late night dual with a clio 182. I left it behind - the driver of the the clio held is hands up as if to say " I can go any quicker"... as above 3rd and 4th gear were superb.
