They DO NOT MAKE EQUAL POWER. Not even close torque. The LS3 makes more on both accounts. You obviously didn't read much of this thread as I proved this long ago.

I don't think the majority of Audi, BMW and Mercedes shopers don't cross shop a Cadillac much less a Chevy but they should. Mechanically and performance wise I think the American cars are right there...

When the GT is lighter, more powerful, on a brand new improved platform and has much better brakes vs a car at the end of its life? Yeah, its completely surprising and embarrasing for Fords 50th...

I kinda think Firebird should have been included in the stats but it still would have been a pretty lopsided figure. What really stood out to me was 1996, 1998 and 2000. WOW. What THE F***. A 1996 GT...

So if weight and overall gearing were exactly the same you don't think the LS3 car would be faster? LOL:bonk:

Its your take that if both engines had the same displacemnt, valves and valve timing tech that the power would be a wash. Well thanks for agreeing with the whole point that valve timing tech and 4...

That engine from the past still does everything better than its Ford counterpart. Your theory that a Coyote with 6.2 liters would make a lot more power than a LS3 is a good educated guess but since...

Yeah I was just speaking in terms of transmission vs transmission and why I see so many say they would rather have the 7 speed.

Disappointed at no 7 speed manual?

I keep reading that people are disappointed that the 6th gen is not getting the TR-6070 7 speed in favor of the TR-6060 6 speed. Why is this? Did you think it had better gearing for performance? Did...

The 8L90 with 3.73's would have a 1st gear effective ratio of 17.00!:confused0068: It would be way overkill and probably be unstreatable. It would be like a L99 with 4.25 gears. When I mentioned the...

I do think the 6R80 might be stronger than a 6L80E but you need to consider that the torque being applied to it is usually way less and the car that its in usually weighs less as well. I actually...

You can find many examples of bone stock C7 auto cars making between 395-415RWHP. You can also find that the engine responds very well to mods. 20-30RWHP gains from a tune or 30-40RWHP gains from a...
