>>0-62 = 6.2 seconds
Top speed = 154 mph<<

That would mean 0-60 MPH potentially in the high 5s. Cool. Some say that the gearing on the sport evo causes it to have worse top gear accel than a 2.3 car in some common speed ranges.

I think that this car could be awakened with some tuning efforts. Some tuned 2.3s can outrun those times. A 2.3 can have more extreme low end torque than a stock factory 2.5 if you ditch the AFM for example.
