10-60 mph acceleration reduced by > 0 % and < 3 %, +/- 1%.

The Spark EV has a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds. 1% of that is 0.076 seconds. 3% would be 0.208 seconds. Personally, I wouldn't spend any time on mods to make my car accelerate to 60 only .2 seconds faster, especially if it made the car noisier.

I was being a wiseass. I didn't measure it. I race and hot rod many of my cars. If you add up a few small improvements in performance, it adds up to a big change that absolutely improves the driving experience...for me.

My "noisy" Spark EV is quieter than any ICE car I've ever owned. ;)
