anywhere from 14.5 to 13.5 or so. really depends on the driver and 60' times.

I'm guessing that when the original poster asked for 0-60 times he was referring to 0-60MPH, which is a much more commonly understood figure than 0-60' amongst the proletariat. So apart from involving a gross mis-use of the apostrophe (my one and only grammar pet-peeve) the answer "Mid 5's" is probably a good one.

I did not realize that the apostrophe was incorrectly used. I stand corrected.

Quarter mile times are a better measurement with a turbo miata, unless its got slicks. What about an AWD conversion from a GTX? Someone try it, can't be that hard you wimps.

it's going to be hard to say because very few people measure their 0-60 time. To get an accurate measurement you'd need a good GPS receiver for one.

its funny that a 250whp miata probably runs a mid to low 5-second 0-60, and will **** all over pretty much anything at the road course on similar rubber.

A 270rwhp Miata is going to be way, WAY fast if you can hook up the power. If you've got sticky enough rubber and tall enough gearing, you're talking 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and under 13 seconds for the 1/4 at over 110mph.
