90D 0-60 Times?

Range will be a little greater but not performance/speed 0-60. If anything, it technical will weigh a little more so be worse, whether they state it or not.

The weight should be about the same. Elon stated that the increased capacity is a result of a change in the battery chemistry; they added some silicon to the anode. Unless you're talking about a minor change on the atomic level, there won't be much difference in weight. The battery is only 24-25% of the mass of the Model S, and a tiny change in that shouldn't be enough to affect the 0-60 acceleration time.

There is not supposed to be any performance change with 85 vs. 90. Elon was careful to clarify it is a range-only upgrade.

Yea, but he also said that the range and ludicrous upgrades are "almost" entirely independent. If both packs are limited to 1500 amps by the new e-fuse, it's possible the new pack could put out more wattage if the voltage curve has shifted to the right under the same loads.

Just speculation, but he did say "almost".
