And I don't really car how they make the horsepower, whether it a Turbo, supercharged or just a whole lot of hamsters.

Sounds like you need driving lessons.

It's not so much the horsepower difference, there is also a torque difference and the difference in the gear ratios, I'd say a drivers race but the SRT8 has a bit more on the Camaro and I'm only saying that because I've had both and it feels noticeably different in the SRT8

sent you my number, give me a call and we can get this going.

I might have a buddy there with a Trans Am. he is old like me and has a Vortech supercharged LS1 and he has never been to the track and wants to see what his car will do.
