2010 M6 SS VS 2011 5.0

SS has longtubes/ Xpipe, one chamber super 10 series mufflers, vararam intake , Tune makes 422rwhp 420tq
5.0 is automatic , intake , catback , and tune.
Who wins at dragstrip on street tires and who wins from a 30-35 roll race?
Just looking for opions. No racing has happened.

A well driven ls3 will take it from a roll, at the strip who knows... could go either way, hard to beat a auto at the strip unless you can really launch well.

The 5.0's are fast compaired to the old Mustangs!!! If you can shift your car with out missing a gear you may have the edge, from a dead start or from a roll.

The Auto in the 5.0 with a tune is faster than the manual with a tune. Its night and day the difference in the Auto after a tune. The Mustang should make around 390 to the wheels with the mods. Would be a close race

it should be a close one, but the cars are evenly match...........i really think the camaro is going to be faster, but the camaro would have to use what we camaro owners have a lot off, which is torque, and get it to lanch(sp) good, if not perfect.imo

I ran a girl with an auto 5.0 at the strip last week. She beat my modded 6 spd the first 3 runs and I beat her the last 3. Im new at this and am still trying to launch my beast without spinning thru 1st and 2nd gear.

Competion mode, launcing around 2000 rpm. I think I get too excited and hit the gas too hard once I release the clutch.

What's up Shark? RWHP in the house! Lol

I think you could edge him out either way. My 5.0 I had was stout but my SS seems like its got some kick to it too.

If the 5.0 has the optional gears and is running premium fuel, your toast.

Not necessarily. The 3.31 geared cars are actually posting faster times stock.

When I ran the girl in the 5.0 auto we were both very low 13's on a test n tune night with temps in the mid 80's, very humid, and little track prep. My best time was a 13.027 and her's was a 13.074. She had a 1/4 tank of gas, silly me had a full tank!

3.31 are the optional gears in the Auto.
The 3.31 Manual cars are a little quicker b/c we dont have to shift into 5th gear just around the 1000ft like the manual cars with the 3.55 or 3.73.

It seems the standard (and only gear) available with the automatic is the 3.15, optional gears available with manual trans only.

Her 1/4 tank was ~24 lbs, your full tank was ~114lbs. So maybe a tenth advantage to her there ...

From a roll there is no contest the SS will win but at the strip with street tires I bet he beats you even if you are a good driver. A M6 with mods is just not ging to be able to put that power down. The auto GT will be able to launch cleanly assuming driver knows what he is doing and then never miss a shift. Get some DR's and a driver mod and you will be able to take him on both fronts.

Thats my problem. Im betting I would be quicker right now, as I am learning, if my car was stock. Am at 440 at the wheels and on P Zeros I keep spinning thru 1st and 2nd. I guess the solution is practice, practice, practice!

The solution would be a stickier tire actually...
