How are you getting headers on a 2013 V6? Not possible and not like it would matter.

You need to go FI to keep up or beat a 370z.

You are comparing low 13 second car to low 14 second car. He will put bus length on you easy.

Bone stock 370z on average would put 2-3 lengths on a bolt on auto V6, you're going to get cracked.

Is there a site just dedicated to camaro street racing? It's pretty much all my daughter talks about when we drive around. She's 9 and is obsessed with which cars we can race and beat. Haha!

Idk. It's sad that we aren't allowed to talk about it here. Why does anyone care? Every other performance car forum has dedicated street racing sections.

I think a private section that you'd have to request to join would be reasonable. It would also increase site traffic so everyone kinda wins.

+1 The mods and admin probably had seizures and foamed at the mouth when they heard about the series "street outlaws"! I live in okc and had my accord dyno'd at chucks shop(the guy with goatee and white mustang).

It's illegal. Camaro5 is a huge community that does not want to be associated with an illegal activity. Take it to the track.

Personally I don't care, but I can see where they're coming from.

No stock 370 runs low 13 sec. here in vegas, maybe below sea level with a 30 mph wind

So is having longtube headers (even high flow cats won't pass in a lot of places), launching your car, flooring it at all (exhibition acceleration), green halos, lowering springs in some places, etc etc. The track is too far and too costly so no thanks.

The Camaro 6 has some serious potential for tuning, while the 370Z is almost completely tapped out tune wise for an engine. The Z motor is nearing the end of it's era, as they have to now turbo charge to get over that 420-430 HP bump after seriously modifying the engine. I know a lot of people who have tried, and blew the block because too much pressure and heat. The BMW motor has the same issue on the straight 6, only so much can be brought out before it becomes a time-bomb. Right about the same horsepower range as the Z also. Hell, they both have trouble running without being tuned :P

Well I did 13.6 in what basically amounts to the 4 door version of the 370z that weighs 400 lbs more and has a good 30 less hp and 2 less gears. bench racing ftw
