2.2 What'll she do mister?

I am quoting performance figures from magazines that I manage to dig up. Your results may vary widely (or wildly). Japanese and US cars are limited to 180 Km/h (~112mph).

There are a lot of gaps in this chart.  If you can provide published figures for stock cars (magazines, web, etc) please let me know.

2.4 What are the gear ratios?

S15 and S14 have the same ratio sets as appropriate:

All S14 turbos have a Viscous LSD, while the S15 manual turbo uses a Helical LSD.  The S15 Auto retains the Viscous unit.  Most normally aspirated cars will not have an LSD.
