Anyone with a V6 running in the 13's
 
I own a 2013 V6 and haven't seen any slips or post about V6ers running in the 13's. That's a depressing thought. The 2007 Mustang GT I traded in for it had far less horsepower and I broke 13.9 with it stock. All I want is a Camaro that can do 13.9 or mid 13's. Besides a supercharger or juice, money really isn't a problem.

The mustang had more torque and probably shorter gears which is why it was in the 13's
If you have a manual i think you can upgrade the gears. Auto you can't.

J_Vibe92 07-27-2013 08:47 PM

you can upgrade to 3.55 gears for the auto

J_Vibe92 07-27-2013 08:48 PM

but ive hit high 13s with 2000plus DA

Srm1135 07-27-2013 09:02 PM

I have a manual. I'll go 3.55 on the gears, no problem. I'm just sitting here thinking INJEN COI, slp loudmouth exhaust, gears, what else? I want mid 13's

J_Vibe92 07-27-2013 09:04 PM

if you have a manual you can go to 4.11s or whatever it is. 3.73s too

jamison90 07-27-2013 09:19 PM

a good tune

If money is no object get a v8

Srm1135 07-27-2013 09:46 PM

Money was an issue when I bought the car. Real bad credit. If it wasn't for my credit I would be driving an SS. But I'm not, so I have to make due with what I have

J_Vibe92 07-27-2013 09:46 PM

why not get a v10 if money isn't a problem lol.

I'd get a corvette with an airplane engine in it if I could get the financing. I work as a dealer in Vegas and when the depression hit our tips went to hell and screwed up my credit. Now that things have leveled off, it's a different story. But my credit still took a beating during that time.

Srm1135 07-28-2013 01:23 AM

I didn't find it funny

J_Vibe92 07-28-2013 01:26 AM

well get a good set of 18in rims under 24 lbs at least and some 3.73s and youd be in the high 13s. of course along with a cai.

Do you know where I can get theses stickers and how much horsepower can I expect to gain?

You really need the lights that display a pony on the ground when you open the door.

Zero HP but they look cool.

Haven't seen a stock V6 run into the 13s...so sorry but unless your track is located in a place with great air and elevation, it won't happen.

That said, we've had lots of guys with bolt on/tuned V6s run into the 13s, but again, if you are running in moderate to bad Density Altitude at your track, 13s may not happen.

The GT was faster for a couple reasons. 1) less weight. 2) more torque. 3) lower geared.

If the V6 weighed what the GT did and had the same gearing they'd be running into the high 13s stock as well. Wouldn't need the extra torque to do it.

Believe it was, but he is modded. Think there is a video of it floating around here somewhere.

We have two members of the Detroit5thgen Camaro club with V6's, one in the low 13's, the other is in the 12.80's with a procharger.

Yeh..13.92 with a full trunk load and 87 octane. Seems to be a little faster now with 28k miles on it. Pretty sure I can do 13.8 with the looser engine and empty trunk. Mine is a stick. My only mods are Cold Air Intake, Mag Xpipe, axleback and Ported TB. Can ony imagine if I had headers a tune and port Intake manifold.
