Those two tuners will have turbocharged 4 cylinder engines making 300 hp or so and about 300 ft lbs of torque. Even if they have all wheel drive, the Camaro should have better 0-60, 1/4 mile, and race circuit times, while delivering comparable if not superior gas mileage. The Camaro might lose in a slalom, and probably lose in a rally race. So, in comparison tests, if the camaro loses in any particular area, it won't be by much. But when it wins, it will likely be by a large margin.

Please note the use of 'could' 'should' and 'probably', as well as the warning in my sig.
