Getting hammered in the top gear acceleration test is most likely the difference between a torque converter automatic and a dual clutch automatic. Though if your comparing two different cars on two...

Using the same blower RPM I would find it hard to believe a engine won't make more power with a cam, higher flowing heads or more cubic inches. After adding one or more of those mods the results are...

The more cubic inches you have the less measured boost you will show but boost is a measure of restriction. I think its better to have more engine cubic inches, head flow and compression with less...

I've owned multiple Mustang's and Camaro's. That's not a Mustang or Camaro owner trait. That's a personality thing. You could have gotten the same thing from a Camaro, Challenger or ricer owner.

You can see on the fast list that its personal best is 8.7 with a TH400. I think it ran 8.9 with a manual but it wasn't the stock TR6060. It was a faceplated T56. Look up a faceplated trans and you...

Hero runs with that car will hit 11's. Hero runs with 122mph trap speeds is LOW 11's. Like 11.1-11.3 and I just don't see that as being possible unless GM lied about something on the car. It would be...

That trap speed is for sure eye brow raising. I have seen C6 Z06's trap 122 mph. Maybe in worse weather but still its 500HP and 3200lbs. If it trapped that then something is up with the weight,...

AFM can be turned off in the M7 C7 just by going to sport or track mode. Hopefully both trans options with the 6th gen SS will be the same.
