I guess no one thought about the fact that these two cars have completely different drivetrains or that the difference in power could actually be a variance in engine output of one engine vs the...

Ordered my 2010 SS in 09 just the way I wanted it and it came on time and as promised. Only gripes would be that it came at night and someone that night put 10 miles on. Probably drove it like they...

Anyone who thinks a manual can be just as fast as a auto in the 1/4 need only to look at the LS1 bolt on fast list. Maybe 8 manuals in the top 50. No car on that list has more than stock LS3 power...

I'm sorry but I have to speak up here. Unless the Mustang and Camaro were dynoed back to back on the same dyno you wouldn't know the true difference. Even then there are variables that get...

LS3 C6=6th gen SS >LS2 C6.
That's how I see it in both published testing and private. There will be high 11 second bone stock 6th gen 8spd SS cars. Mark my words. LS3 C6 vs 6th gen SS will be super...

I will give you a A for effort but there are way too many variables to account for when trying to compare all those cars and then picking and choosing the test results. The closest fair comparison...

I myself am going to wait for the performance #'s and price. Then I'm going to compare vs a discounted left over ZL1 or slightly used ZL1. I'll get whatever has more bang for your buck.

It would take a lot of R&D money to make a different LT1. GM's not doing that unless they could put the engine into more cars. Your talking about making a completely new valley cover at minimum with...

That sucks. Probably not getting good contact area with that alignment either resulting with less than ideal traction.

Its a gen 6 Mustang vs a gen 5 out of production Camaro. Looks to be a great car for a great price but I find the fact that people want to fairly compare them entertaining.
