Don't worry about the V6. I had a 305 (5.0) 2bbl 140hp V8 and I got speeding ticket for beating a 5.0 mustang GT from Texas DPS. (like over 20 years ago just and old fishin' story).

So 300 HP is plenty fast IMO*. Also the value is not just performance but your life experiance with the car. It's the good and bad times etc.

The car has the best safety features. At the end of the day if you can walk away it's just a material thing that can be replaced. So don't worry about all the dwelling on superchargers, nitro and 500+ hp mods and just enjoy the car lol.

Yeah, haha I really wouldn't consider slapping on a supercharger, Nitro or anything like that... I'd just buy an SS.

I'm just looking to do some light mods to it. CAI, Headers, Cat-back, Tune, whatever they offer. Just something to give it a little over 300hp and enough to keep the Cobalt SS Turbos from destroying me...

I know they keep saying they are planning on having the V6 Camaro do 0-60 in 5.9 seconds... not that .2 or .3 of a second are that important but I think it'll do 0-60 a little quicker than that...

The brand new Accord Coupe, has 271hp 248ft lbs of torque, and weighs 3549lbs... It can do 0-60 in 5.7 with a 6spd. And it's FWD...

The Nissan 350Z's VQ motor puts out 306hp and 280-something ft lbs of torque while it weighs similar or something around that and it does 0-60 in 5.2 seconds...

So if the V6 Camaro weighs around 200lbs lighter than the 3700lbs curb weight of the Camaro SS (lol tell me if I'm wrong) and the 3.6L DI, VVT V6 produces 300HP with 273 ft lbs of torque, could it not do 0-60 somewhere between 5.3-5.7 seconds?

There are a ton of other factors that go into it. Such as gearing and suspension. Also I don't think the V6 curb weight is 3500 lbs. I think it is 3700 and the SS is like 3850 or something. So depending on how aggresive the V6 gearing is I guess it "could" go that fast but it is very doubtful.

Yeah I wasn't factoring in gearing... Oh and I looked on the .pdf file here that have the specs on it and yeah LT V6 w manual weighs 3741lbs... I knew this thing was big, but not that big... so probably will do 0-60 in 5.9 stock... (hopefully)

And yeah Camaro SS 3898lbs?

... Well I guess it's not as heavy as the Challenger, but it's close...

Just price a base Challenger or mustang on their websites and you'll have a pretty good idea about price for the Camaro.
