That being said. modded car threads are worthless so Ford still gets big dog kudos.

But if you think the SS wont spank the GT500 after 3k worth of mods, none of which include a supercharger, than your in lala land.

520 hp 3800lbs vs. 500hp 3950lbs
Either way it's still NaStY dude!

thanks for the correction in my termanology. its been a long day. lol.

and i dont think we'll get the whp numbers until were darn close to being able to buy the car, or somebody gets it and tests it. we'll just have to wait.
for an example, my cousins 74 Nova blown 327, 110 octane fuel, gets 400 whp.

Dont know how much its been discussed, but if the 08 LS3 vette is putting down 390rwhp. Id imagine at worse the new SS is going to be 370rwhp. Not to mention a few mods bringing it over 400rwhp
if the vette is at 390 the SS should be around 380 i would expect

Having IRS all around, the base SS Camaro around a twisty/curvy track should be able to keep up with the base GT500 mustang. In a straight line, that is another story.

Until that 500 adds a pulley, CAI, exhaust and tune...

I think that 500 is going to charge really hard down the straights. I'm not sure SS would be able to keep up but I'm hoping so

lol I thought with the optional exhaust the 2008 Corvette w LS3 puts out 436hp? (not to the wheels of course)

we don't know what sort of numbers the Camaro will put to the wheels. The Corvette has a very efficient driveline so losses are in the 10%-13% range. We shouldn't expect the Camaro to do as well as the Corvette, nice if it does though.

Bro first you quoted power numbers and were off. Now you are saying the Camaro SS will be 15-20K cheaper than the Shelby GT500, when pricing has not even been announced. We all hope it will cost that much less. But dude right now you are 0-2, and best to slow down while you are not quite so far ahead. Dude and for peat sake stop quoting info for fact unless you can back it up if challenged. Making assumptions or guesses is one thing and every one here does it. But when you start to say things that sound like info based off fact that does not exist, people that know better will challenge this simply because it can be debunked.

Let's cut him some slack.

He didn't quote misinformation about dyno' numbers as he referenced the 'Vette. Also, 'Father has said pricing will be close to Mustang and maybe a touch higher, so he's not far off there either. Please, let's not forget SS makes 422 bhp, not at the tire, as you pointed out. He's new so give him some time to catch up.

Thanks

That would be freakin' awesome, especially since I saw a GT500 this week marked down to $39,999.

Unlikely, but awesome. I'd price the SS starting at high 20's if I were a betting man.

I don't see high-$20Ks out of the question yet, but this car is going to carry a premium over Mustang, Lutz has already said that. How much? Noone knows for sure yet - 'Father's hinted at not a whole lot but things can change. I believe we're getting confirmation around the beginning of the year.

What scares me, is that a lot of the standard equipment (I think, and correct me if I'm wrong) that is coming on the SS, like the upgraded FE3 suspension, Brembo brakes, better wheels and tires, are similar features that are available on the SS, are not available on the Mustang, or Challenger mid level segment vehicles (GT & R/T). Those types of features come in their top level vehicles the GT500 priced @42k, and the SRT-8 priced @41k. And the SS power wise comes really close to the two.

So GM stating that the Camaro will be "competitively priced" could mean alot of things.

And seeing that the GTO, which I see a lot of things with the Camaro that parallel to it, wasn't even priced under 30k...

Just scares me I guess. But I'm just going to remain hopeful until official pricing gets released like everyone else here is.
