Specifications are for models 1985 - 1985/09. After that the compression of engine was lowered a bit and output was 166 ps until the evil catalytic converter was fitted and power decreased to 160 ps.

The 0-60 on this is 8.8, it changes into third at a max 56mph, so there is no gearchange to affect the time drastically.
