Tuned LT versus SS who win?

Tuned LT versus a stock SS who would win?

I ordered an SS. Just wanted to see what people think?

If by "tuned" you mean running 7psi, then the LT should win.

Other than that, my money would be on the SS

LS3 or L99?

honestly, regardless of which one it is, it should be the SS hands down...

You mean tuned like just a computer tune? It would take a few tenths off the LT, but the SS would still blow the doors off it.

Forced induction would be the only way to get it to match the SS. Even if you did something like that, you'd still have spent way more than the difference between the LT and the 1SS.

Why would someone buy the V6 and try to make it as fast as the V8? You're going to have to spend more money to catch up to the V8 then you would just buying the V8 and you'll void your warranty in many areas of the car.

If anyone plans on buying the V6 and modding it to make it faster, I advise you not to. Just get the V8 if speed matters.

oh come on......there is a 100 h.p. difference....I don't care how much "computer tuning" you do, the SS will win in the end every time in a race, hands down.

That's like saying... who would win, a 5 year old vs. a UFC fighter or a 5 year old with a gun vs. a UFC fighter. DUDE, are you serious???
