Me too, I like the sun roof. Ford had the advantage of being able to compare the 5th Gen Camaro to the new Mustang. Chevy will at least have a quick look at the new Mustang for some last minute...

From all I have been reading I think the 1LE will still have the edge on a road track. The GT records a lower cornering force and it has been commented that the Mustang still feels a little sloppy...

I think a centrifugal is a better choice than a top mount blower. Lower heat soak and less stress on the drive train. But turbos are even better. Lower stress on the engine, stock gas mileage,...

Funny!

These formulas are not too accurate, they are just for internet racing. But are you sure your weight is 4,200? I guessed this since I have 1LE (heavier than an SS) 2SS and the sunroof,...

:word: Drivers are the key if we are talking manuals. And tires. If we are talking autos they can run mid 11s with the listed mods and DRs. So if autos, the 5.0 has the edge.

I was just going by website HP estimates. They are all over the map. But one agrees with my mph (122) if I enter 580 RWHP (Dynojet) and 4200 pounds. It also says I should run 11.3. Those number...

Stop making us Camaro fanatics jealous. No LTs? Does the Boss intake work on autos? (If so don't tell Pat)

Not hating, the Challenger is a neat car. But I would choose a ZL1 first. Some will prefer the Dodge.

I still wish both cars were lighter. Not much hope there.

I do not lose to many 5.0s any more (only 1 in particular). All you need is the right mod. L99s are the fastest 5th Gen Camaros at the track, except for heavily modded ZL1s.

As for 5.0s, very...

Looks good OP. I would plastidip the Camaro lettering, the inside of the SS Emblems, and the taillight bezels. Get yourself some 1LE/ZL1 knock off wheels to complete the look.
