yes,you could beat some of the older muscle cars with the newer 6 cylinders.obviously you arent going to beat the same model car with 120+ more horsepower.i wouldnt race an SS with my RS unless it was on ice...LOL

It only took the a$$hat with the L99 redheaded stepchild crack to send the thread down the wrong path. The Camaro's a great car regardless of configuration and I saw 2 pretty sexy looking V6 ones today. I waived they didn't... LOL

Ya ....I think he drives a v6. Funny how most comments like that come from those guys. My red headed step child will put a beating on his car.

Ron, but seriously it's an L99. On the internet you can't put a beating on anything,,,lol

Just unplug two spark plugs and you will be all set for the internet racing.

Depending on what you consider "Bolt On's" there are some V6 Camaro's running in low 11's without touching the internals. So in order to put a smack down on them you will have to be in the 10's.

I guess I don't consider Nitrous or other forced induction a bolt on. Although technically you bolt them on. I know of at least one V6 Camaro that is running 10s but that is really not what we are talking about here.

I fell in love when I saw the yellow camaro in the first transformers. As we were walking out of the theater I said if they build it, I will buy it.

In June 2010 I stopped by the local chevy dealer. At the time I was only considering a V6 in IOM or SGM. I drove one and I liked the power but the dealer put on these huge 22" Boss rims and I could feel how heavy they were. I said thanks and started to leave. The dealer stops me and says lets drive the SS. At the time dealers had to drive the SS off the lot to avoid the dumb test pilots. He pulls up to the light, when it turned green he let the beast loose and I was in love right there and I wasn't even driving!

He pulls over and lets me drive. I didn't drive it like he did but I could not stop smiling. It was a black 2SS/RS M6.

Got back to the dealer and ran numbers for a while. I had a 2007 Audi A4 with some mods that I would trade in. Told the dealer I wanted a IOM 1SS/RS. After a week or 2 the dealer calls me back and says they found one but it had rust on the under carriage from sitting in a lot for some time. I said no thanks and started to leave. The inventory manager comes over and offers me a loaded 2SS/RS M6 in IOM for the price of a 1SS.

Been in love ever since. Didn't mod it for the first 3 or 4 years I had it. Still loved it. Then I lowered it and got new wheels. Fell in love all over again. Got cammed and supercharged and couldn't stop driving it. Now someday's all I think about is how I can't wait to drive it. I gotta go!

When was the last time you saw a 11 second v6 Camaro? For that matter an low 11 second SS. If I get beat by a sleeper then ill tip my cap to them. But im in now way wondering the streets in fear. In 4 years and many track runs ive yet to run into anything that runs that fast. Ive seen cars at the track in the 10s but they were hardly sleepers...and I havnt had a chance to run them.....except the Hell cat that beat me by a car. Pretty hard to put down coulda shoulda woulda times in real life.

Drove 500+ miles just to go test drive my Z and it was absolutely love at first sight. Exactly what I wanted and then some. Already had headers and some mods that kicked it up a notch from the others I had tested before, so within minutes of the first drive, I knew it was my new ride.

Still turn back and look at the car every time I park it and walk away. That's the way it should be.
