Any hard numbers for diff swap results?

I see lots of people here have done a diff swap on their cars (and even more are considering it), but I haven't been able to find any hard numbers on the results... 0-60, 1/4 mile, etc.

Has anyone quantified what the real difference in acceleration is from a diff swap for various E46s and diff ratios?

I'd be most interested in "before and after" 0-60 and 1/4 mile numbers for a 330 before and after a swap to a 3.15 diff, but would love to see anyone's results.

Anyone?

I've seen very few hard numbers for anything performance-related posted here.... A few dragstrip timeslips, but I've never seen anyone's measured 0-60 times.
