How can I beat my friends v6 with my ss?
 
Ok so my friend has a 2010 v6 camaro. It has a tune, ported and polished heads, cai intake, no cats with straight pipes but stock headers and it's turbo charged. It puts down 412 wrhp. I have a 2012 ss and it only has high flow cats and borla atak exhaust. What else can I add without destroying my warranty? If it wasn't because of the warranty I wouldve smoked his ass along time ago but I want to keep it for now. He has already beat me twice at the straight line by a car length or two. By the way there both automatic.

Get a killer paint job and a nice hot model in the passenger seat for the win.

I tried that, didn't work. Maybe it gave me 1hp

unhook two of his spark plug wires...surely your V8 can beat a V4??!:sm0:

jd10013 06-24-2013 01:16 PM

If he's turbo'd there isn't much you can do. bolt on's aren't going to cut it.

You could try weight savings and drag radials. Also you could do some suspension mods to help with your 60' time.

Or you could do that magical fuse pull.

i2disturbedSS 06-24-2013 01:21 PM

:noidea:
hmmm some are better tires bigs & littles / air intake / shorties / weight saving
...
not much though but cuz he has a turbo most likely he will alway end up passing you or turning the boost up -
maybe you can turn your heat on full blast too

And use 93 octane

PalmerGA 06-24-2013 01:33 PM

He's torbo'd... you're basically stock? Suck it up - you can't beat him. Get a ZL1.

Monchy36 06-24-2013 01:35 PM

This is so funny! You don't cross a thread like this one every day...:smiling1:

SeriouslySinning 06-24-2013 01:38 PM

This is pretty funny actually :pop2:

You're going to need headers, intake and a tune.

Wasp 06-24-2013 01:53 PM

For a warranty warrior, get a Cold Air Inductions CAI, QTP electric cutouts, and talk to your dealer about headers and a gear swap (usually they will keep it under warranty if you let them install and buy from them).

vroomapunk 06-24-2013 01:55 PM

If you want to keep your warranty. Headers and intake are best bang for your buck.

If you want to get an L99(auto) to 412 rwhp, you will need a cam.

But if you want to get close to his power, get LT headers, Intake, and some good tires.

A tune will help you immensely and help bridge any power gap that may be there after that.

If hes only got you by a car length, headers, cai, drag radials, and practice can get you there.

SlingShot 06-24-2013 01:55 PM

There's always the ZL1 upgrade mod ...

209camaross 06-24-2013 01:55 PM

Maybe engine swap to a lsx? Lol jk. I knew there wasn't much I do could just wanted to see your guys replies
