I've yet to hear stage 3 0-60 times. I have the stage 3 with eisenmann race exhaust.
The online calculators I have seen use the 1/8 time and speed to calculate 0-60. Here's one for example: to 60 MPH I would not claim these are proven scientifically accurate calculators, so judge the following at yourself.

Using this calculator, RajG's best time 8.4000sec@86.75mph yields a 0-60 time of 4.04 secs. Looking at my best Stage 2 time, 8.092sec@87.93 yields a 0-60 time of 3.77 secs and 8.150@86.75 yields 3.9 secs for Stage 3. Using correction factors for weather (thanks Alextremo), there was no difference between the Stage 2 and Stage 3 track times. While I was at Stage 2, I did some Droid phone 0-60 app timings and I got in the 3.9 secs range with a bit more weight in the car, so it's in the ballpark.
