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.

Besides a supercharger or juice, money really isn't a problem.
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.

.....and to the "should have gotten a V8" guy (always has to be at least one who feels compelled to jump in) - you should see how many of your SS brethren are running the SAME TIMES with their SS's......due to bad launches, and not having a clue how to handle the power!! ...lol

You don't see us getting on your posts with: Wanna go fast, should have gotten a Mustang"....do ya?

Jeeez. Enjoy your LS man, it's a great car, with a great motor. I love my 13 RS M6, and have owned too many Mustangs to count, including a 2011 5.0.

if his primary concern is speed, then yes, that would be the easiest route. . that's why they make a SS. for people who want to run below 14

and no, I do not own a SS, just the V6

We had a member with a 2010 LT auto that ran low 12s on 125 shot. Had to sell it due to economic/family reasons though. Might find some posts in the Motorsports section about him. He was Rod1 on here.

If you beat a 5.0.. well then he wasn't trying or had absolutely no idea how to drive even starting off like a wimp he should have been able to fly right past you. There is a big difference between a stock mid/high 14's car and a stock high 12's car...

Also if money is not an issue, go boost or swap in an V8 Crate motor.
