This reminds me when the LS3 had 30 ft pds on the 5.0, and we learned how that worked out and that there was more to the equation. In addition the E92 M3 matching the 5.0 in acceleration despite a...

Manual vs manual: complete driver's race. Nearly same power-to-weight ratios. Camaro's advantage is over 100 more tq, M3's advantage is 8k redline and gearing.

Traction will dictate this race in the 1/8th and the 1/4. If you or him cant put the power down, races from a dig will be pointless. Drag radials will be essential.

The 5.0 really needs to step its game up. It needs at least 470 HP and 275+ tires to compete with the SS. The SS has outdone the GT this time, it feels like 2009 again when the GT had the 4.6.

The fact the E55 is an automatic gives him a large advantage. If you have good tires and can shift quickly it will be an interesting match.

AWD provides a great advantage on the 1/4 mile. Get yourself some drag radials and you will tie it up. I was able to shave 1.5 seconds off my time with drag radials only.

Unless one of your bolt-ons was nitrous, I see that win being the lack of your opponents driver skill, not the ability of the car. Assuming you had headers its roughly 400whp vs 500whp for the Zl1.
