I could be wrong but I think it's 6 seconds if you shift right and so on

yep, 6.1 seconds give or take depending on your driving skill.


"Initial performance numbers from Chevy indicate that the V-6 Camaro will move from 0-to-60 in 6.1 sec., although they're aiming to get it to 5.9 or so. The quarter mile comes in roughly 14.2 sec. at 98 mph"

And yes that's the 2010 camaro. I doubt the 2012 suspension change affects that much.

Suspension is the same on the 2012 V6's (SS gets the new FE4 suspension), but the LFX V6 engine makes 11 hp more than the LLT in the 2010s & '11s.

The 2012's might be a bit quicker than the older cars, but I wouldn't expect anymore than a tenth in the 1/4 so 0-60 should be more or less the same.

Since your driving an LS with heavier rims and less sticky tires its hard to say exactly what your car is capable off, but the 2010 auto RS has been tested to do 6 seconds stock and the 2010 synergy with 19" Pirellis has done a 5.6 stock (per Motortrend).

With a perfect run, you might be able to get a tad below 6.

Ohhhh, ok gotcha. Thanks for the new info!

I think you're right, it probably has a small edge over the 2010 and 2011s.

According to the wiki, the 2012 lost 20lbs too.

Has anyone done a comparison to see if the 2012 LFX is faster than the LLT stock vs. stock? I know the torque hasn't changed but just wondering if there is any increase in performance?

Peak torque is the same, but the LFX has a bit broader torque curve and hits its peak a little bit sooner (4800 rpm vs 5200 I think). So it makes a little more power from mid-range all the way up to its redline

18s are lighter generally so 20s are slower. The alloy 20s would be better than 18 ls steelies but if u had 18 in alloys you would go faster. Lowering would help cut a cleaner path through the air. All super fast cars are low to the ground. A raised car is less aerodynamic

I thought the LLT made 304 horsepower, and the LFX makes 323 (or at least my 2013 does)? If so that's a 19 horsepower increase...

More hp and less weight. Lfx will definitely win stock for stock. Heres the link I found this info http://www.automobile-catalog.com/ca...amaro_1ls.html

The original LLT HP number of 304 was an estimate, based off of its use in other vehicles and the changes for use in the Camaro application. The following year, after Ford came out with the 305 HP V6 Mustang, Chevy decided to actually get the HP numbers certified.

Lo and behold, it came back at 312, magically putting the Camaro back on top. So the LLT has made 312 all along, not 304, although 2010 V6 Camaros were all listed as 304.

If the LFX has 323 HP at the crank, it's not a stretch to get to 340 with an intake. I'd venture to guess that most intakes will add around 10-15 rwhp (10 is probably more realistic) if they're well designed. So maaaybe you'd end up with 17 extra HP at the crank. A more conservative guess would be in the 330's. Keep in mind, that's at the engine. The actual amount to the wheels is much less.

My CAI says 16 hp gain so 339 rounded up to 340 sounds better haha im sure my ported throttle body gives it the extra 1 HP
