Need a guesstimate..

Anyone here able to guess approx how long it takes the Stock MN12 platform with a 4.6 V8 to go 0-45mph under full throttle?

If you're looking at the stock V8 as a rough analog of the SC, I came across these (supposed) specs for a stock Supercoupe. Given that Motor Trend tested a stock '96 4.6 to make 0-60 in 7.8, it's somewhat comparable.

Out of the Thunderbird game for now.
