Cammed Camaro vs CTS-V

Very curious about this...lets say we have a Camaro cammed with bolt ons pushing 480 to the rear wheels. Who would win in a race, a stock 2013 CTS-V sedan, or the Camaro. What about the CTS-V Coupe?

I would hope the Camaro wins the v's are mid to low 12's stock and that Camaro should run in the 11's.

Camaro should honestly win and pretty easily. A SS making that to the wheels would beat a ZL1 to

Not necessarily - it 'could' do yes but certainly not easily.

I've beaten more than a few SS's making that and more than that whilst stock.

Now I'm not stock so comparison days are over.

I was surprised to look up stock cts-v dyno numbers and see so many of them in the 480 - 500 hp range, stock. If the Camaro really was putting 480 to the wheels...then it would probably have a tiny lbs/hp advantage over the V. But unless one of your bolt-ons is a supercharger...480 whp is a pretty big number.

Im talking if the guy in the Camaro knows how to drive he should win by a decent margin. I mean I've beaten camed SS to, but with similar power to us the SS has a decent advantage

480 is actually a normal power rating for a cammed 5th gen

Your going to lose. The V makes loads more torque throughout the rpm range than your cammed LS3.

i figured its torque would be a bit better across the power band but how does the weight difference make a difference if any?

480 is not avg for a cammed ls3, I would say more like 450-460 to be real. My car put down 440 with a very small cam, runs 12.4-12.3s on stock tires with 115-116 traps in summer heat! So a cammed car putting a real 480, my money is on the cammed car cuz it should be trapping 117-118 easy. The stock Zl1s I see run at the track are normally running around the same times I am with auto's. Dont even get me started on the 6 speed guys, its just sad.

Then you should be 12 or high 11s with tires. Nice times for a small cam, which cam do you have.

DA is around 2000 ft on a good day! Tracks are 600-700+ in elevation. The time to run around here is now, but my car is apart. So I am hopping to get back before they close in a few weeks. I would love to see some 11 sec passes out of Z, just haven't seen it yet. 116 is pretty normal for a cammed ls3 at the track and weather I been racing in.

I've been trying to set up a race (at a track) with my buddy's co worker who just got a new V.
Would be a good race given weights of both cars with what wheel numbers we're both putting down.

A friend just took his stock down to the tires, manual CTS-V Wagon to Milan here in Michigan on Friday to a 12.3721 @ 116.67 and a 1.995 60ft (8.1 in the 1/8)

That is a pretty darn fast stock wagon....

I have a 12 cammed camaro ss making 473 to the wheel. I raced a friend of mine with a 12 CTSV coupe with intake and a pulley. It was head to head. Both cars stick.

I raced a CTS-V a couple weeks ago and it looked like his car was Flintstones powered. I smoked him. They are fast, but they are heavy and I'm pretty sure, even with my nitrous off, I'd take one.
