Anyone with a V6 running in the 13's

I own a 2013 V6 and haven't seen any slips or post about V6ers running in the 13's. That's a depressing thought. The 2007 Mustang GT I traded in for it had far less horsepower and I broke 13.9 with it stock. All I want is a Camaro that can do 13.9 or mid 13's. Besides a supercharger or juice, money really isn't a problem.

The mustang had more torque and probably shorter gears which is why it was in the 13's
If you have a manual i think you can upgrade the gears. Auto you can't.

Money was an issue when I bought the car. Real bad credit. If it wasn't for my credit I would be driving an SS. But I'm not, so I have to make due with what I have

I'd get a corvette with an airplane engine in it if I could get the financing. I work as a dealer in Vegas and when the depression hit our tips went to hell and screwed up my credit. Now that things have leveled off, it's a different story. But my credit still took a beating during that time.

You really need the lights that display a pony on the ground when you open the door.

Zero HP but they look cool.

Haven't seen a stock V6 run into the 13s...so sorry but unless your track is located in a place with great air and elevation, it won't happen.

That said, we've had lots of guys with bolt on/tuned V6s run into the 13s, but again, if you are running in moderate to bad Density Altitude at your track, 13s may not happen.

The GT was faster for a couple reasons. 1) less weight. 2) more torque. 3) lower geared.

If the V6 weighed what the GT did and had the same gearing they'd be running into the high 13s stock as well. Wouldn't need the extra torque to do it.

Believe it was, but he is modded. Think there is a video of it floating around here somewhere.

We have two members of the Detroit5thgen Camaro club with V6's, one in the low 13's, the other is in the 12.80's with a procharger.

Yeh..13.92 with a full trunk load and 87 octane. Seems to be a little faster now with 28k miles on it. Pretty sure I can do 13.8 with the looser engine and empty trunk. Mine is a stick. My only mods are Cold Air Intake, Mag Xpipe, axleback and Ported TB. Can ony imagine if I had headers a tune and port Intake manifold.
