Hmm, I looked it up in Bruce A's book, and it listed the '76 as having 247hp. I think the combination of lag and gearing would put us pretty even.

The original turbo's were tested with 0-60 in the mid 5's and most of the magazines tested the 3.2L cars anywhere between 5.2 and 6.1. I don't think I could get my car down to 5.2, but I bet if I drove it like a rental I could get into the 5's, and I'm betting a turbo, especially an early one would be even harder to launch.

But it's neither here nor there. I think it would be close, but someone would have to come out on top.
