Not sure why the WS6 would need a driver mod since the highest rated 305 in '88 only made 215HP. They were high 14 at best, and most were in the low 15's. I say good job and the WS6 needs to do a better job picking his competition next time!

All you have to say is 305 and that tells you there is no competition for either a 5th gen V6 or V8, all 305's are dogs even though I thought I read that 3rd gen WS6's run mid 14's. The WS6's you have to look out for are the 98-02 LS1 4th gens (very high 12's-low 13's 1/4 mi stock) some of which could have potential to hand a 5th gen V8 it's ass. Now a 3rd gen WS6 does hold a special value compared to other 3rd gens, like the IROC, GTA, 1LE cars do.

If it was a 305 auto or the TBI version than you should have killed it. I think I could beat one of those in my 5.3 Tahoe.

But yeah the 305 wasn't anything special, you at least had to have the Firebird Formula 350 if you are going for a late 80s model.

Yep....pretty much.
I've got nothing but mad respect for those little Turbo 6's.
