2010 SS vs 2009 GTO

How do you think my Camaro would do against my friends GTO.

My SS has a CAI, Flowmasters American Thunder exhaust system and a dyno tune to top it off.

The GTO is 5-speed and has JBA headers and an exhaust which i am not sure of which type it is, and a Veraram intake. 09

I'm pretty sure 2006 was the last year Pontiac made the GTO

does the Gto have a tune? if not then i say he beats you by a little. If he does then he beats you by a bit more than that.

2004 GTO = LS1
2005 - 2006 = LS2 (400hp)

Also, its either a 4 speed auto or 6 speed manual

An 2005 - 2006 (manual or auto) GTO is a close race against a Camaro SS, but the edge definitely goes to the Camaro SS (LS3 Camaro SSs traps a few mph higher than GTOs).

I owned an 05 manual and 06 Auto GTO. Both cars ran a few tenth slower than my Camaro SS (mods being equal).

I had a 2005 auto and it was not much of a performer at the strip. It was bone stock other than some Nitto 555r DR. The best I could do was a 13.4@105. So much for the claim GM put out there back then of a 13.00@109 from the auto. That was actually posted in the brochure. I don't doubt that a better 60ft would have lowered my ET, but 109 stock? My SS feels much faster when it was stock.

As for you modded buddy... anything can be madde fast. I personally don't have a clue how those cars respond modded.

Your time is right with my 06. My 06 GTO (auto) did a best of 13.3 @ 105 mph in good conditions.

The GTOs (LS1 and LS2) repond well to mods, but they have a very soft suspension (luxury like) that loves to wheel hop. The Camaro SS is much easier to get off the line cleanly without wheel hop.

My 6 speed manual GTO was wheel hop crazy and I couldn't do any better than high 13s - low 14s (bone stock). But with drag radials, I did get it down into the low 13s.

My A4 (auto) GTO was consistantly faster than my M6 (manual) GTO.

Heck ya the suspension was soft. Do you remember when you would do a brake torque how much the rear would squat down? I Remember sitting at a light one time and I was making the rear end squad by hitting the break and giving it gas. The car next to me pulled up and asked if i had hydraulics on my car.

Yeah, I would brake squat just for fun while sitting at stop lights. The rear would drop down like crazy.
