The ATS-V comes with a better tire than the Camaro, put some real performance tires on the Camaro and I think the results will be very close.

0-60 is traction limited for rwd cars with this kind of power, 1/4 mile trap speed is a much better indication of straight line performance.

Well if you give the 6th gen Camaro a comparable wheel and brake package to the base model Mustang, you are probably closer to a 100 lb delta. The Camaro also has a 19 gallon tank vs. the Mustang's...

It says the NPP exhaust uses a vacuum pump, I assume this is a typo since I believe the new system uses electric motors.

It is strange, they are hyping this track car with no relevant track times released. I still think the GT350 will impress, but I would think they would want to get those results out there by now.

Wow that must have been quite an experience. What part of the engine do you build? Must be satisfying when you see one of the engines you had a hand in rolling down the street.

Well the LS7 redlines at 7000, and crosses 400 whp at 4800, so that is actually a 2200 rpm spread, the voodoo pulls over 400 whp from 5700 to 8200 redline, or 2500 rpm.

Horsepower is not a marketing or legacy term, it just happens to be a measure of power based in U.S. units. Watts are no more proper than horsepower, they just happen to be based on the metric system.
