HKS Fit Sport Turbo in C&D

Anyone get their December Car and Driver yet? On page 106 they have a review on a HKS Fit Sport Turbo (GD3). It's not online yet, so I can't provide a link.

In fact, Car and Driver's quickest 0-60 time for the GD was 8.7. They got 8.5 for the 09, and Motor Trend got 8.3 for the 09 as well.

Don't hold your breath. For $25k they got a Fit barely faster than stock.
Turn to the next page and see what Suzuki did for $25k. Now thats something.

I KNOW my fit goes 0-60 in less than 8.6 seconds. But then I don't have a cat, and I've got larger injectors. Still, I think there was something wrong with that test.

I agree with explosivepotato about something wrong with the test. We all know the HKS Fit turbo kit isn't the fastest out of the box due to Carb. Also i think $25K is list price on all the parts on that car including the custom body kit, wheels, etc.....

gd is supposedly faster than the ge according to some testers
a TURBO gd being slower than a stock ge is plain sad

coming from hks its just unbelievable

there is few explainations to this - hks put the turbo the wrong way in, or they forgot to mount the internals inside the snail (O_O)! or retained the stop mappings and just changed it at 6500 rpm for a sudden 30hp increase in the last 100rpm

emmisions or not, plain pathetic results
